Yeah. I have Samsung 840 250GB hard drive nas I dont use any optimization software. You are getting round about 400-500MBps speed anyway, Why do you need to optimize? If you are feeling that the SSD is slow, which is weird but in that case you should just format it. It may have got its tables messed up.
Make sure that you keep the firmware up to date. I updated mine and got some improvement in RW speed.
In the case of my SanDisk extreme, a user discovered that TRIM wasnt working, and had it on the forums with his test results. A coworker of mine discovered this and reminded me to update. Now i make it a point to check monthly for updates, cause i got a massive speed increase from that..not to mention TRIM keeps the drive alive longer.
