The drives will take a performance and possibly endurance hit when AHCI and TRIM is not available, but they will still be vastly faster than spinning drives and should last long enough.

X60T PMs requesting personal tech support will be ignored. Thank you for your great posts.

Many thanks in advance! What Thinkpad s are you referring to? The root cause of the issue is the Windows 7 has somehow created a 0KB unused partition every time you do a fresh reformat.
