    I have installed a Crucial ssd m550 256GB.
    It is amazing & I have checked & gives me about 500MB throughput using CrystalDiskMarkPortable_3.0.3. When I cloned my old spinner using the Crucial desktop kit, Acronis asked if I would like to enable trim, I pressed yes. Also how do I make the SSD go through garbage collection? I left the computer on for 12 hours as I heard that after 8 hours of standby the SSD starts garbage collection. Is this true?

    Thanks to all.
