Is my SSD dying?

8 minutes ago, Chromastorm69 said:

Hello!

Is my SSD reporting wrong values in crystaldiskinfo or what? I know that temp sensor is broken, because it never changes.

I don't see anything that suggests it's dying, though I'm not sure why it says 90% drive life remaining since it has only 562GB writes, most likely it's an inaccurate number though since the S.M.A.R.T info is very basic on this drive.

Quote or Tag people so they know that you've replied.

Thanks for your answer!
I was really wondered when temp sensor suddenly died, and then inaccurate numbers appeared after a day or something like that.

Why ppl even use HWInfo. It's clearly unreliable and not fit for this job. Use Crystal Disk Info which is specialized for storage devices and nothing else and I have great experience with it when it comes to reliability of info it shows.

Crystal disk info doesn't report drive remaining life for my ssd, so I used hwinfo instead :)

Probably does that because there are no reliable parameters for that...

I`m more intrigued why "Power on count" parameter is so high. Is this ssd mounted in a laptop? Also for more readable info switch to this option in CDI options>

As for the life assessment I`m more inclined to believe Hard Disk Sentinel. Here you can see how different the remaining life is rated

I use this particular disk in my "gaming" rig.


Thanks for recommending Hard Disk Sentinel, it's indeed more accurate. It reports around 21TB for lifetime writes and 92% for health.
