Crucial RealSSD C300 has TRIM on Mac OS X


I had the opportunity to get a Crucial RealSSD C300 256GB at a really decent price. According to its specs, it features TRIM. This should make a perfect disk for my MacBook Pro 13".

Indeed, after a clean OS X Lion installation and the use of the TRIM Enabler utility, I have TRIM enabled of the cat:

Unfortunately, the Samsung MMDOE28G5MPP-0VA 128GB (rev. VAM0501Q) still hasn’t got TRIM.

That’s All Folks!
