SSD 510 and TRIM in Mac OS

Esteemed Contributor III

I am running an Intel 510 Series 250gb SSD on a Mac Mini in OS 10.6.8. I am confused about TRIM. Currently I am using Trim Enabler 1.2, but am not certain if it is necessary.

Does this 510 series SSD drive require TRIM? I read that some newer SSD drives have "Garbage Collection" and do not require TRIM.

I wish to upgrade to Lion 10.7.2. If TRIM is required for this drive then I cannot decide between using Trim Enabler 2.0 which is still in the beta phase . . . , or to try the suggestions here . . .

I appreciate any help you might offer.
