Getting Technical

Disk Controller

Most SSD have SATA III (6 Gb/s) Interface. Older mainboards having only SATA II controllers

  • will deliver only half the advertised speed
  • might not operate an SSD at all

Support for TRIM

SSD require periodic use of the TRIM command

  • if an SSD reports "disk full" and deleting files fails to create usable space then that is an indication that TRIM is either not implemented or not supported
