    You can raid mixed drives, but the array won't be maximized. In this case, a 5400RPM drive will bring down the performance of a 7200RPM drive.

    It depends on the chipset and/or controller. Intel has a new version of RST that is supposed to support TRIM in raid on 7-series chipsets:

    Other add-in controllers may support it as well.
