Mac OS X does not seem to support TRIM, the command that tells SSD drives they can reuse a block. This means, after a while of usage, writing over much of the SSD, performance degrades.
Since waiting for Apple to support TRIM s probably futile, I'm looking for alternatives. This article (also see other pages) suggests that the OWC Mercury Extreme, an SSD with the SandForce SF1200 controller has well-performing garbage collection so not having TRIM does not mean I need to throw away my SSD after some use. Right?
Now on to the questions -- is anything questionable about the review, methods, conclusions etc.? Do the results translate to other SSDs that use the same SF-1200 chip, such as the OCZ Agility 2 Extended or Vertex 2 Extended (that are actually available in Europe)?
