Any more info on this would be awesome. I have a triple SSD RAID0 array with Kingston V 64GB drives.

The 64's you guys are seeing are HEX value, 64=100%, heres mine with the default settings;

You can actually change the setting in this tool to display as decimal value. First, in the main menu go to and press the "Settings" button;

Once the window opens and your there, you see the default is to show it in hex values, just select the "dec" and click "OK" to change how the SMART data is showed;

When we go back to the SMART data, TaDa! As you can see it shows the values in easy to understand, decimal values!

Uh oh. Only 10 more years of live. Which is totally wrong. I am not sure where it gets it figures from. At ~700GB a month this drive should last another 116 years from my mathematics.

Heh... we all started our runs somewhere around the same time (except for 3.0Charlie), so I suspect it's some kind of default "let's tell them something" output from the program that has very little to do with the expected life of the drive. Since it's 10 years, I'm going to guess that if it doesn't see anything particularily damaging going on to the drive that it assumes average drive lifespan of 10 years.... ;)
