    Great review of OCZ Vertex SSDs

    Including a review of the 120Gb Vertex 3, the Vertex 2 25nm vs 34nm NAND issue and other chip issues. I found it very interesting and eye opening:

    Thanks. I still get confused on this. I assumed that W7 automatically TRIMmed and did Garbage Collection when the drive is idle. Reading his article he infers that he forces/triggers TRIM to happen. How is this done ?

    Or possibly Atari.

    Empty the recycle bin

    Wowsers !

    "verified to be running TRIM and then cleared by a standard windows delete command, followed by an emptying of the recycle bin to ensure the TRIM command had been triggered. "

    Taken from a sticky thread:

    Q: "How do I know if TRIM is working in Windows 7?"

    A: Go to the Command prompt and type > fsutil behavior query disabledeletenotify

    DisableDeleteNotify = 1 (Windows TRIM commands are disabled)
    DisableDeleteNotify = 0 (Windows TRIM commands are enabled)

    Some SSD manufacturers provide software tools to aid this too. I have an Intel G2 drive and I use the Intel SSD toolbox as well as the recycle bin route to keep it running ok.
