Bought a Crucial MX300 11/16. Health deteriorated dramatically, now at 59%. What are my options?

Hi there, I bought this drive on 5th November 2016. Almost right away the health started dropping. I don't reboot often (usually once a month), and upon a reboot just now Acronis has informed me that the drive is at 59% health.

 

I don't want to have to wait until it fails before I can return it, is there anything I can do ?

 

This is the SMART info

That's the wrong SMART layout for that drive so Acronis presumably doesn't support it.  Try using Crucials' own Storage Executive or Crystal Disk Info http://crystalmark.info/download/index-e.html
