I have noticed significant performance degradation on my Samsung EVO running on an Old Macbook Pro, Intel Core 2 duo. Are there any SSD tips that I should apply to this hard drive? Will Trim Enabler make things quicker?

  • What do you exactly mean with slow? – Max Ried Oct 21 '14 at 10:39
  • Did you build it into the CD slot or did you replace your HDD? – Max Ried Oct 21 '14 at 10:40
  • HDD Replaced, Mountain Lion Clean Install. Overall lagginess after 2 months of usage, no trim enabled. – polyglot Oct 21 '14 at 10:41
  • Did you measure it's speed? Do you have SMART data available? – Max Ried Oct 21 '14 at 10:42
  • yes. it's roughly 135MB/s on both read write speeds, as it's attached to a SATA 1 controller. Nevertheless, the overall issue is with lagginess rather than slowness. Mission control is kinda choppy etc. It was working fine for 2 months but it seems to have slowed down eversince. – polyglot Oct 21 '14 at 11:09
