I have a rather slow (talent) ssd in an acer nspire one notebook which is still
running after, I think, 18 years. It does not support fstrim, so no special
maintenance. It is not the original acer supplied ssd which was a joke.

I have a copy of the datasheet and part identifier somewhere, but not on
this machine it seems.
