http://www.hddstatus.com/hdrepshowreport.php?ReportCode=212563&ReportVerification=D1844543 The HDD is brand new, so in a way i was expecting all 'very good's as my 2 old sata HDDs are. But the new HDD was 1 of 2 identical ones, and the other has pretty much the same report, so is it a weak batch, or is it normal? If the first 2 categories said normal, i'd be fine with that, but the report does give warnings =/ The note at the bottom explains one of the warnings, but i'm worried about the other one. Most alarming is 'The overall fitness for this drive is 30%. The overall performance for this drive is 30%.'
