Nope. W7 recognizes and ssd and activates trim in the OS. I have included a link, uploaded to Dropbox, to a program that will tell you if trim is working or not. You run it as an admin, when it is done reboot and rerun as admin and there it is...working or not working.https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/22708279/trimcheck-0.5.exe
Rob, you never had any problems with spinners? Lucky lad! I will hazard a guess that you were running XP when you had problems with ssd's. XP does not natively support trim, Vista, W7 and Linux do. Or maybe you were using commercial grade ssd's in a server? If so, wrong tool for the job.
I understand a person developing a dislike for something, but that does not justify misinformation. The OP said he is running W7 so he has trim natively. Uninstalling the Samsung program should not remove trim ability from the OS. I would not have installed it in the first place until I did some research. I researched the Intel SSD Toolbox before I started running it on my ssd's.
Hopefully you will not get cross-threaded by my post as that is not my intention. Giving the OP some info and and a program to help him was/is the intention.
Hope you guys get it figured out. I'm done.
