|Chameleon SSD Optimizer/OS X Trim Enabler Reader Feedback:|
Apologies for the late posting of replies from readers to a request for feedback in early May here, but now have them on a page of Feedback on Chameleon SSD Optimizer/OS X Trim Enabler. Thanks again to Neal, Mark, CN, Bill and David. At the time I wasn't able to reply to mails.
(I originally posted the request especially for Sandforce SSD users, as a potential buyer of my mini w/Intel 520 SSD asked about it, but he ended up getting a new iMac instead after getting offered a 'deal' in combo with a new Samsung F8500 TV from BB.)
