Im going to install my new Samsung 830 256 gig SSD today.
I was just doing some last minute reading to see what to do. I found this tweak guide in this forum. This article was posted on December 19, 2010.
I was wondering if anything in this guide does not apply anymore since there has been new improvements and technology developed since this article was posted -

List of what they say to do:
Set to AHCI Mode:
Verify TRIM is Enabled
Disable System Restore
Disable Drive Indexing
Disable Drive Defragmentation Schedule
Disable PageFile
Disable Hibernation
Disable Prefetch and Superfetch
Disable Windows Write-Cache Buffer Flusing
Disable Windows Search and Superfetch
Disable ClearPageFileAtShutdown and LargeSystemCache
Adjusting the Power Settings

Thanks for your input on this.

It is still an excellent drive. However, some of the points are debatable. Not that they are wrong, it's just that the opposite opinion has a decent-size following of experienced people. These are

Disable drive indexing
Disable PageFile
And, to a much lesser degree, disable Hibernation (only do this if you want to hibernate a lot).

I personally fall on the side of enabling these. I'd rather have the drive work hard for me and wear out sooner in exchange for a faster experience.
