2x M500 240GB, reallocated sector counts

Hi!

 

I have to M500, so far I don´t had a prob with it.

 

But now I´m unsure about the reliability, the C4-parameter was at delivery on both at 16, 05-parameter at 0

 

Now, after 1,5TB and 2,2TB TBW both showwd at 05 the value one, C4 was now 17

 

Are this normal, a misinterpretation from CDI Or the decrease had started so fast?

 

CDI don´t mark this values yellow or red, so it "thinks" it´s not a bad sign. But on my HDDs these 2 parameters gets marked yellow or red (Have about 20 SSDs, only one Corsair have the 05-value at 1, C4 at 0 which also is strange)

 

HD Tune marks these parameters yellow, so it thinks it a bad sign

 

What do you think

Did your drives come with 02 and then you upgraded to 03 firmware?  Mine increased by 1 when I upgraded the firmware for some reason.

 

Have a look how much bigger your reserve blocks value (B4) is than the reallocations to see why its not a problem anyway. :smileyhappy:

Yeah, came with MU02 and I updated it to MU03. I like to see the TBW-value, hope the Reads gets also interpreted in future CDI-versions :smileywink:

 

Reserve sectors are both at 4065

Both my m500 units (960GB SATA, 480GB mSATA) were delivered with 16 sectors marked. For some reasons, that appears to be standard.

1 sector is marked, but 17 Reallocation event count

 

When it was new there were 16 Reallocation event count and 0 retired block count

The firmware update bumped them by one.  Dunno why. :smileyvery-happy:
