    It looks all good to me, as performance is on spec with good SMART readings. You can run another benchmark here http://ssd.userbenchmark.com/Samsung-850-Evo-250GB/Rating/2977 and compare to other people's scores with the same SSD.

     

    These are my smart numbers for a drive only used 1/5 of the time compared to yours. Speed tests are from the Samsung software.

    Where do I look on CrystalDiskMark for random 4k and Deep Queue 4k?

    Those speeds are normal. Samsung advertises speeds up to 540MB/s read and 520MB/s write for your drive.
    SMART check comes back fine and it is reported as 'good' so I wouldn't worry about it.

    Oh okay.

    Thanks for the update and the comparison. I thought my drive must be dying.

    You're just listing read- and write-speeds? Those don't say anything about whether it's dying or not.

    What exactly do you think is the issue? Read/write speeds aren't a very good indicator of the health of a drive, though those looks fairly normal for your drive.

    Try using Samsung's Magician software to check the 'health' of the drive or even CrystalDiskInfo (notCrystalDiskMark).

    IIRC most SSDs have an allocation for bad sectors. This is a couple of GB and should show up in most diagnostic software, might show up in SMART too. 

     

    Edit: I have the same SSD on one of my rigs about the same age. I'll check my specs for comparison.

    Here are the pictures in Samsung Magician and its SMART.

  4. Is my Samsung 850 EVO 2.5 inch SSD dying or normal? I had this drive for 2 to 3 years now.
