Hello!!
about a year or two ago i bought a SSD (when the very first drives released for buying)
At the very first moments i was really happy for the dramatic increased speed!!
after a week of hard use(as im writing and deleting a lot of data when using my PC) the speed turned slower day by day. And then i searched the google and found that if you moving your data a lot on SSD becomes slower(and the most funny thing is that you have to format it to become fast again).
So, has this been fixed?
If i buy a new SSD will this happen again? Also if no what companies are you suggesting me
thanks

Trim support is suppose to combat that. I do believe windows 7 or higher is required for trim support.
Open Command Prompt with Administrative privileges (Run as administrator) and enter the follow command.

fsutil behavior query DisableDeleteNotify

If the result is '0' TRIM is enabled.

What SSD did you buy?

If you're going to buy new today, I'd recommend Samsung. Plextor, OCZ, Corsair etc. also have good SSDs though.

New SSDs do not have this problem. In the past SSDs suffered from very limited write cycles so their lifespan was short. Nowadays SSDs can endure more than 72TB of written data before they degrade.

As long as you have Window's 7 and a motherboard within the last year or 2 you should have TRIM. And this should not be a problem at all. I have 2 new computers from 2012 and my brother has 1 too. All three have SSD's and all three perform just as good as they did day one.

New SSDs are much faster and thanks to TRIM can sustain performance much better.
