A quick answer to the questions not already answered, and i'll add this info to the FAQ later.
A quick format only rewrites LBA table on the drive, whereas a full format will write to every single block on the drive. This is bad for an SSD, as you'll lose a write cycle, but worse than this, in a single stroke with a full format, the drive will be in a fully used state, and require a full TRIM event and possibly a secure erase to return performance.
Drivers are not required for SATA SSDs, the motherboards on-board SATA controller requires drivers which are installed when you install the OS.
PCIe SSDs like the RevoDrive X2 requires a driver, but a link is provided in the drives documentation.
