I just recently purchased an /message/156316# 156316 Intel 330 series SSD 180GB. It is connected to a SATA 3 port @6Gb/s. The reason I'm here is the SDD seems to slowdown after I run the the toolbox trim optimizer.
The slowdown seems to last about a minute then it goes back to normal. The toolbox ver. is 3.03 which I believe is the lastest.
I am curious what the current firmware is...Mine is listed as 300i. Is there a newer ver? or will there be one soon?
I have an older 320 series 120GB that is only SATA2 that did not slowdown after trim.

I'm having issues with disconnects/reconnects on the 330 120GB. Did you remove Intel RST drivers too?
Are you in RAID or standard AHCI?
I had RAID before I got this SSD...I'm on AHCI now. I guess I just forgot (or didn't know) that the RAID Rapid storage software would affect the SSD. I'm no expert, but after sifting through the many threads thought I'd try removing it.
I wasn't getting disconnects just freezes after using the toolbox to TRIM.
Good Luck with yours.
