Contrary to what you may read elsewhere, this drive does not have TRIM with firmware 000F.
I'm using this with OS X 10.8.2 in a Thinkpad X220 and it's fabulous--no need for a 2.5" drive with a 256GB SSD
Thats absolutely shocking and I don't believe it. Surely its something to do with your setup. 01MG firmware notes improved trim response time which implies it already had trim support. Guess I'll see... if my y580 ever arrives.
The bugs on this M4 mSATA SSD scared me off from buying one on BF (random inability to detect the drive). Even now after the release of new firmware I'd hesitate to jump on a deal for it, until users have confirmed the firmware has fixed the outstanding problems.
It's too late, I've gotten the Samsung 840 shipped to me instead. I suppose I can put the X230's HDD in a portable enclosure...
I flashed both of my 128GB 2.5" M4s yesterday with the latest firmware. I'll image my system and deliberately try to sabotage it by popping the battery out and pulling the power, etc...
I think a lot of my problems with the last F/W coincided with Windows 8, which like any new OS, is more prone to driver and compatibility issues. I'm still holding off installing the latest Intel Rapid Storage AHCI drivers and a bug with Malwarebytes' real-time protection module caused BSODs for me (on 2 systems) and sent my 010G drive into panic. Can't wait for the new drive to get here today!
I've been running 010G on my 256GB 2.5" in my X220t for over a month without issue. My old 128GB 2.5" in my old laptop once wasn't detected, but just leaving the computer on for 5 minutes and then rebooting fixed the issue and it hasn't done it since.
