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.

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.
