My WD1002FAEX-00Z3A HD passes all the SMART tests but it has a “1” under the column “warranty”. I have 3 (three) 1’s but most are all "0"s. Does this mean the drive should be RMAed?
do you have a screenshot of it?
Sorry…I thought my question was a common one. The warranty column is on the far right. The window can’t be maximized or enlarged.
sorry but we cant see
Weird…it shows up for me. Must becuz I am online and signed in.
I think there are issues with posting p ics. This forum doesnt accept imageshack imbedded pics. U also can’t UNDO marking SOLVED. Here is the direct link: to the image.
Further experimentation shows that ALL IMAGES are awaiting approval??? :mansurprised:

As for your ImageShack image, here is the direct link, without ads or banners:
I believe the warranty column is identifying those SMART attributes that are life critical or “warranty-able”, not those which have failed. If the value of any of these attributes drops below the respective threshold, then you will be entitled to a warranty replacement. Wear-and-tear attributes such as Power On Hours Count would be non-warranty-able.
