    Excuse me for butting in please but HDD Sentinel is giving me different results reading same SMART. Hours in use, number of starts are different (lower in Sentinel) and health is 98% in SSD life and 100% in Sentinel.

    Well i'm no Guru.
    <<<<<<<<<<<

    But my thought is each program is different then other react in different reading. I feel Hard Drive Sentinel is a better Program then the other.
    I can understand if interpretation of data is different, like in prediction of drive's life left or even percentage of health, but other data should be the same in every program as it is in it's disks firmware and can't be changed by windows or programs.

    True, this i can not explain, mean i have saw this too, different SMART info on different programs. How long have you had this SSD ?
    I have a good knowledge of PC's over the years, but this is something i am not so sure how to inform you more on and why.

    Now if nobody else answers i would suggest a new thread, just for this question.

    I am going to collect few more programs that read SMART and see, never even considered it possible to read differently at same time.

    Must be careful on which you do choose, i heard some carry Spyware in install.

    I have a program, not free though, that shows me it and does a lot of other stuff like monitoring and benchmarking.
    Although this program does not give you a percentage for health, just SMART results. AIDA64

    Nowadays, you have to be careful about any program you download but it's more of a question of where from that which program.. Yes Aida and Everest also show SMART data.

    True i think you mean, always go to the source (manufacturer's) page rather then downloading from another ones site.
