    SSD 510 and TRIM in Mac OS

    photo@wtechlink.us

      I am running an Intel 510 Series 250gb SSD on a Mac Mini in OS 10.6.8. I am confused about TRIM. Currently I am using Trim Enabler 1.2, but am not certain if it is necessary.

       

      Does this 510 series SSD drive require TRIM? I read that some newer SSD drives have "Garbage Collection" and do not require TRIM.

       

      I wish to upgrade to Lion 10.7.2.  If TRIM is required for this drive then I cannot decide between using Trim Enabler 2.0 which is still in the beta phase . . .  http://www.groths.org/?p=562 , or to try the suggestions here . . .  http://digitaldj.net/2011/07/21/trim-enabler-for-lion/

       

      I appreciate any help you might offer.
