    Best reliable software for SSD health checking?


    To check for bad sectors etc.
    I have Hard disk Sentinel but it doesn't really tell you much.

    S.M.A.R.T. should be enough, there are plenty of programs that check it. I just use Speccy, have to click on a tiny hotspot labeled SMART Attributes in the storage drop down.

    How much info do you want? SMART is where most software gets info from anyway.

    Just something with a simple interface I can go to to see temperature, sector health, and hours running.

    Your system specs show 750GB 7200 rpm hard drive, did you just install the SSD and which one?
