Default Re: New Samsung EVO 860 question

Yes you need to format the drive.

Yes you should enable TRIM using "sudo trimforce enable". Google it that if you have questions.

With High Sierra or Mojave I woud be formatting the SSD as APFS, on Sierra meh it's more of a thought process, but probably yes (I'm not aware of any serious bugs but it was newer on Sierra). Or if you need older systems compatibility then just use HFS+.

Adding new drives is often good time to try an upgrade. You can throw MacOS Mojave onto one of these drives and try running it from there for a while and then switch over if it works well.
