    Hard Disk Sentinel is not very accurate with SSDs, geared more for HDDs. Try this: SSD-Z Portable (SSD information tool) | PortableApps.com

    Thanks. When taking a look at it it would appear that the latest version is two years old and never got out of beta. That in and of itself is not disqualifying but it would certainly indicate that the author has not been working on it and I wonder how relevant that application is to "up to date" and recently manufactured SSDs.

    Well, there certainly does not seem to be any general consensus ranging from no app is needed to Samsung Mag. sucks except for firmware and one or two Yea or Nays for HD Sentinel.

    Samsung magician doesn't give any details, that's the problem with it. What's needed is detailed potential error list from SMART.

    Thanks.

    Right. Someone else pointed that out to me in another thread. I believe CPUID HWMonitor does that but I am not familiar enough with the app to find out that info.

    HD Sentinel and Crystal Diskinfo 7 both read my SSD SMART params, but as raw values with the same interpretation as for my SSHD.

    However neither show the Wear Levelling Count, for example.

    A couple of other progs read nothing from it.

    I guess if you're good at the Kelvin scale in hex, then Samsung Magician and Crystal Diskinfo will do you. Otherwise HD Sentinel provides Kelvin in decimal.
