I purchased my 2012 MBA in November. Today I downloaded and ran SMART Utility, and it informed me that my SSD's SMART status was "failing", after only two months of use (I'm currently at 45 battery cycles). Here are some screenshots of SMART Utility: http://imgur.com/a/PbbuW What intrigued me the most was that although the program said that my disk is failing, none of the other tests seem to bring up any errors (zero bad block count; zero uncorrectable errors, normal temperature, etc...). Also, there hasn't been any noticeable difference in speed from when I first got it; I still can boot in under 12 seconds, and I still get read and write speeds around ~500 MB/s. After reading about it online, I discovered that this means that my SSD doesn't have long to live , so I immediately backed up my data. Anyway, I have a few things to ask: 1: Are SMART tests always reliable? From the additional information given, it doesn't appear that my disk is damaged. 2: If my SSD ends up failing, is this covered by the warranty? 3: If so, can I have it replaced straight away or do I have to wait for the SSD to actually fail before bringing it in to a store? Thanks in advance!
