TBH for Vertex 2, or ANY SF based drive for that matter, use OCZ toolbox (which works basically on all SF drives as long as you are NOT using Intel RST drivers). It went public about a week or so ago. It will give you better understanding of what your drives health "really" is...in a kinda sorta / squint and tilt your head kinda way. :)

OCZ Toolbox for Sandforce based SSD drives. (Agility2, Vertex2, Vertex2 Pro, Vertex-LE)

That looks a little more like it ......in a kinda sorta / squint and tilt your head kinda way, I guess the only thing I'm not sure of is the "Unexpected power loss" count of 56 ....

You did 56 UNgraceful shut downs. No biggie. Nothing to really worry about. Happens to all of us at some point in our lives :)~

No bad block replacement is good to see. That is the one I would keep an eye on as that will give you a good indicator of the overall life expectancy better than the guesstimate. IF that starts going up FAST....sell the drive...FAST. ;)

I like how you worded that..."UNgraceful"...lol...must be all the crashes/bsod's while OC'ing?....oh well, I can live with that. If that count starts going up even slow I'll probably sell it FAST!..lol...thanks again AkG

The 64s probably mean the information is taken in a hexadecimal fashion, where "64" is 100 in decimals. Hence the 100%.

What I'm surprised about are the read / writes amounts done on the drive in 1 year...
Any estimated life reported yet? Mine's still chugging away at "calculating". ;)

No change here, still "calculating". The application does work, since the throughput is updated daily.
