    Intel 520 freezes on MacBook Pro/Mac OS X Snow Leopard


      Hi all,

      I installed an Intel 520 SSD (240GB) in my MacBook Pro yesterday. After reinstalling the system, I moved my datas.


      I encounter freezes! A few seconds freezes/hangs. Quite often actually.

      It seems a bit random but it is really annoying! The whole computer is frozen.


      I noticed it happens more often when a lots of datas are going in and out. Browsing the web doesn't do much things. Copying a file from a disk image (DMG) to desktop, it freezes… sometimes.


      The SSD has the 400i firmware. I installed the drive in the HHD bay. Negotiated Link Speed is 6 Gigabit. MacBook Pro EFI is up-to-date. Software is up-to-date.


      I haven't activated the "Trim Enabler" software (Mac OS X doesn't manage for 3rd party drives).


      I cannot run the SSD Toolbox from my Mac. I'll try to install Windows and see if it hangs up.


      Have you heard about these problems? What can I do? I don't want to keep a drive behaving like this!


      Thanks for your help,
