Chameleon SSD Optimizer/OS X Trim Enabler Reports updated:
Updated the page of Feedback on Chameleon SSD Optimizer/OS X Trim Enabler with more reports after OS X 10.8.4 update. (Some said Trim was still enabled, so assuming they did not use the Combo Updater, but asked.)
   One report also included comments on his Sonnet E4P/RAID that he said now has I/O pausing after the 10.8.4 update. (Noted installing the latest Sonnet site drivers.)
