    I have a OWC Mercury EXTREME Pro 6G SSD 2.5 as my startup drive on my MACPRO 5,1.

    Is there any way to TEST, SMARTEST, Maintain, these drives, with any third party or other software?

    I have TECHTOOLS PRO and it is almost useless when it comes to SSD hard drive perimeters....

    Your best bet is to about once every two to three weeks delete you browser cache and cookies. Plus really think of moving your iTunes Library to another traditional hard drive or better yet a NAS drive might be good investment.

    What do you want to test? read / write speed? Blackmagic or AJA system yes can do that. Of course, you can simply copy some large files to check it's real world performance.
