Kingston won't provide firmware updates for recent SSDs

Apparently those of us who own a Kingston 40GB X25-V Value SSD are not going to receive a TRIM update after all. That's despite the fact that the X25-V uses the same 34nm NAND and controller as the 80GB and 160GB G2 SSDs, which have got TRIM support..

It's not Intel's failing though - who have released a TRIM firmware for its X25-V, and the situation is highly surprisingly given Kingston's "great relationship" with Intel.

Since the drive has already reached End of Life only a few short months after it was launched, that means Kingston has effectively dropped support for it as well. Great customer service there, Kingston.
