    I would really appreciate it if anyone with a 80GB X25-M could post a screen shot their SMART data. I'm especially interested in ID 5, your Reallocated Sector Count. I need to know the number for “Value” and for “Worst.” I just purchased a used 80GB X25-M from someone off eBay and I want to compare this value to someone with a pretty new drive. I can't post my data right now because of the computer I'm using, but as soon as I get home I'll post my SMART data. Please, if anyone could help me I would really appreciate it. (VirtualRain, hint, hint.) Also if anyone knows what the data for E8 and E9 means please let me know.

    Here's a good, free application if anyone needs one (windows only)...

    Thanks

    Hey, thank you for taking the time out to post that. Is your SSD pretty new, when did you purchase it? Thanks :)

    Thing about these SSD's is that the numbers are not like regular spin up drives.

    I don't even think the X25-M supports SMART..

    Here is some info I found on SSD's and SMART:


    SMART

    While not new to 8820, our dealings with Intel have given us some further insight into ‘reading’ the state of your X25 via smart data. The easiest, most freely available (for personal use) solution is with PassMark DiskCheckup.


    Of the entries above, ID 5 is of interest. This entry relates to the number of flash blocks considered defective by the X25. A large spike in this value may indicate your X25 is nearing its end of useful life. My own drive still replies with 1 here, indicating it has 4 possible defective blocks (it's a 1:4 ratio for the 80GB X25-M). This is remarkable considering how hard I’ve been on it. Important note: A value of 99 here indicates 0 defects. It seems backwards, but that's how SMART reporting works.


    You can read about it here:

    http://www.pcper.com/article.php?aid=691&type=expert&pid=9



    What I don't understand is that he says, "A value of 99 here indicates 0 defects." My "Reallocated Sector Count" is 100, it is not 99 - which he says would be perfect with zero defects. I don't understand his reasoning for the 99 figure. Does anyone know?

    Reallocated Sectors

    Hey Apple Working -

    Your reallocated sector count looks fine. There are no reallocated sectors, which is exactly what you want. The first number next to each of the SMART attributes is the "raw data," which means exactly how many reallocated sectors, or pending sectors, or CRC errors, or whatever, of that particular attribute. The following numbers are, as I understand it, sort of an interpreted rating system. So it's often more helpful, for me, anyway, to look at the raw data.
