I think SSDs without TRIM support are still an order of magnitude faster than any HDD. So it may wear out a year earlier than if you could use TRIM, but at $70 (and falling) for a 64gb drive, who's counting? It's almost as cheap as a tank of gas.

I'm not sure if you really understand what TRIM does? Not having TRIM doesn't make it "die out a year earlier." Not having TRIM means eventually your SSD slows down to a literal CRAWL, to where it's barely faster than a normal HDD and in some cases even slower.

TRIM's now on every SSD (and has been for years), and it really needs to be in order to keep them effective. Disabling TRIM by RAID'ing your SSDs is just asking for misery.

*shrug* no shirt off my back, obviously, but I'm just saying.
