Plextor released new firmware for its M3 and M3 Pro (M3P) series SSDs this week. The only thing in the change log was:

This firmware revision supports specific command for our new drive utility (Plextool)


Thoughts?

I wish I still had one of Plextor's SSDs so I could fully test this utility. Here's a screenshot though.

Can also be used with the M2P series SSDs with the 1.09 firmware that was just released.

no manual TRIM possible?

I still use XP on a PC, so I look for SSDs with the possibility to TRIM with a tool. Intels Toolbox can do that

You really don't need TRIM with Plextor's SSDs. True Speed's garbage collection algorithm is awesome.
