NAS that supports SSDs with TRIM? [SOLVED]
Q. I am looking for a NAS that will let me use SSDs and supports TRIM. That is very important to me because I want the SSDs to last a long time. I like Intel or Samsung drives if possible and I only need 100GB to 200GB or so. FYI I am looking for a two bay RAID1 mirrored solution. Thank you!
A. Hi Sergio, I think you are in luck 🙂 Synology is a well respected NAS brand and they have a list of their NAS that support SSDs with trim even when RAID is utilized:

Of course there are other models available, but that seems the best match for your request.
