Which Micron drives? I'm not familiar with the 'Fujitsu' model for that
The newer ones are fine, the ones listed above with the MU01 firmware
being bad have MU02 firmware (or newer) available that fixes the problem.
The M500's firmware exists, but I don't know how available it is. So for
Micron, solutions to the problem exist.
The 830 and 840 apparently claim support, but are in the class of drives
that simply fail to actually work in what may be a reasonable way to detect.
There's code to do the fallback in there now, but I'm not so sure that it is
working given some of the reports I've seen. Maybe I need to try to but
a couple of these drives to see.
So - they are the most popular/used drives in a more "professional"

At least for the micron drives, you don't want to use NCQ trim on the
versions listed. It's data corruption roulette. For newer drives, it is
The performance will certainly be no worse than it was before my
