Just got my Intel X25-M G2 and.. Tags: Hard Drives Performance Intel Storage Last response: September 23, 2009 12:00 AM in Storage Share ottosen September 22, 2009 6:27:52 PM ..I got it in a 1.8" version instead of the 2.5" one. Is there any performance difference? It's so tiny!! I don't wanna unpack it until I know whether or not there is a difference. Also, using Windows 7, the whole TRIM thing should be ready to go, right? Thanks in advance should anyone know, Ottosen.

I mentioned that it applies to G2 drives because no such update is planned for the G1 (last year's model) drives. Those who have Intel X-25 "G1" drives won't be able to take advantage of TRIM.
