    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%.'

    Hmmm i get: The overall fitness for this drive is 90%.
    The overall performance for this drive is 97%.

    Not sure what that means for you though... my drives been around for about 14 months now, alot of that 24/7.

    Although your report says on new drives spin up time will improve, so i'd just take it as that... if its not broke... dont fix it!

    The drives do seem to be fine, just installed windows on it, and ran a few tests on it prior to that, all passed thankfully.

    They're also in a RAID 1 setup so at least i'll have backup should one of the drives fail
