Hello TSF!

I just want to ask, is this normal? I just bought an SSD (Kingston UV400 120GB) last January, 2018. I use it as the Primary Drive (OS and MSI RAMDisk) with a HDD as Secondary Drive (Storage).

According to Hard Disk Sentinel 5.20 Pro:

SSD Health: 99%
Power On Time: 7 Days, 2 Hours
Lifetime Writes: 2.43 TB



According to Kingston SSD Manager:

SSD Health: 100%





I am just confused.

Confuse about what?
For a second opinion, download Crystal Disk Info. This would be the definitive information for the SSD.

Hello sir! I am confused to what App should I believe into. One says 99% and the other 100%. I am trying the Crystal Disk Info now, I'll update later.

Crystal Disk Info doesn't help either. May I just ask, some S.M.A.R.T attributes could be supported by one SSD while the other isn't?

For example, according to the S.M.A.R.T Attributes supported by the Kingston SSDNow UV400, there is no Attribute No. 169 or the Remaining Life Percentage.

However, the Hard Disk Sentinel App, outputs data from that Attribute Number which is not supported by the Kingston SSD.

Maybe that is the reason why I get 99% Health on HDSentinel, and 100% Health on Kingston SSD Manager?

The bottom line is, your SSD is in fine health.
Different software programs have different ways of the reading the results of a drives Health. You are concerned over one point. If it was dramatically different then you would warrant being alarmed.
Look at it as the way, a HDD's capacity are reported differently between binary and decimal (ie) A 1 Terrabyte is really is 1024 GB, but is measured as 1,000 GB's but the capacity the system can use is 931 GB's. We all know this and accept it, we don't go worrying about the lost GB's

Well, actually it is just fine for me, all I wanted is to maximize the lifespan of my SSD, given the fact that the Power-On-Time was just only around 7 days, and the overall health already dropped by 1%, and I never wanted to follow that same pattern every 7 days of Power-On-Time dropping by another 1%.

Simply running a self test on a drive via HDS can be enough to drop 1-2%, ignore it, it's fine really.

No worries, it's something I first noticed ~4 years ago (save the disk tests until you strongly suspect there's a problem?).

If you're happy that the question has been resolved, you can use the Thread Tools dropdown above to mark the topic as [Solved], it might enable others who've noticed the same thing happening.
