If you need an SSD, buy whatever you can find at this point. Your choices are few.

Default Decent SSD but no TRIM - 05-22-2014, 04:22 PM

For anyone also in this situation... The Kingspec PATA SSD (for the Mini 9) does not support TRIM. Win8.1's Defrag/Optimize will not optimize the drive and the command line DEFRAG.EXE will return an error. (I have a 64GB Kingspec SSD in my Mini 9). CrystalDiskInfo also doesn't show "TRIM" as a feature of this drive.

So, be aware that performance of Kingspec SSDs will degrade over time. To add, Kingspec's website does not show any firmware upgrades for this model...

I don't think there are any SSDs for the Mini9 that support TRIM.

I'm posting a writeup on how to manually TRIM into the "General Discussion" forum, for drives and OSes that don't support TRIM. (Not posting here, since it's not Mini 9-specific).
