Should I install or wait for trim?

Today I finally got my X25M G2 SSD, but now that the TRIM was pulled back, what should I do?

Can I install windows7 now and somehow install trim when it's released, or does it require formatting the disk? Or should I wait for the trim, and install it in my vista with the empty SSD hooked up and then format and install w7?

Thank you!

Integrate and install win7, you will be fine. you will be able to do the FW upgrade and run trim without loosing the installing (in theory)

OK, so the format does not give any andantages after installin the trim? I dont want to take any chances if the new version is really coming this month

As far as i know no. becasue trim is a win7 fuinction, kinda like the defrag for a normal hdd. sorry i dont kjnow if that answers your question

'By the end of the month' - they said. So you may as well wait a couple more days, and do it all properly in one go with the new firmware.

If they don't release it within November, come up with a new plan. But these forums will turn into a chaos if that happens.

Unfortunately it happened and you can note some reaction.

I would not wait, as the deadline seems not so near.

I'm running Win7 for few months now on X25M G2 80GB, installed and working fine,

but the performance is not so good, I blame it on win7 though, not so the ssd..

I also have winxp sp3 on raptor and it works better (and it was running for years compared to the 'fresh' win7 installation)

but to answer your question,

no I don't think you should wait, you can upgrade the firmware later
