Which Solid State Drives currently support the TRIM command? Do not include drives which use a specialised tool such as wiper.exe; I am asking about the TRIM command. Please list one per answer, with a citation and firmware version if possible.

If you're asking for one per answer, then: community wiki please. – Arjan Nov 14 '09 at 16:12

From the GSkill forum

The new GSkill Falcon series support TRIM under Windows Seven.

And the first generation of Falcon support TRIM too through a firmware update (before that, it was only through wiper.exe utility).
Problem: the firmware update will erase all your data...

Note that there have been reports that Intel's firmware update has been bricking drives. I am not sure if the newest firmware update resolves this issue. – ChrisInEdmonton Nov 12 '09 at 17:52
The bricking issue was resolved in a firmware update. – user3463 Nov 12 '09 at 21:34

According to Anandtech, Indilinx Barefoot supports TRIM. This includes SuperTalent UltraDrive, firmware version 1819, and OCZ Vertex, firmware 1.40.

As of November 4, 2009, the Corsair Extreme series of drives do not support TRIM. In this forum thread, an official rep says, "I am sorry as we do not have any updates at this time and as far as I know the new firmware mentioned above had some issues and was or will be pulled until further notice. But we are still working on it.".
