Best SSD Tips

Now that I have an ssd in my system, what are the best things I can do to maximize the life and performance of the ssd. Any suggestions welcome.

Leave it alone. Seriously.

The only thing I would suggest is possible disabling the Hiberfile, to free up some space. Especially if you do not use hibernate, its just wasted space.
Beyond that, leave it be and enjoy a faster PC.

Theres tons of tweaks you can do to reduce writes etc. but from my experience it actually makes either no difference, or slows things down a bit.

It is fast. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing anything that I should do.

i'll second the disabling of hibernation. extra room and whats the point when your machine should boot fast enough where sleep/hibernation is kinda pointless in my opinion.
also i have done no tweaks per-say to the ssd and has been running perfectly ever since i got it (at that its been in two laptops now)
