HGST ! FAIL ! Should I Worry?

Hello Community,

I’ve bought a HGST 6TB (HGST HUS726T6TALE6L4 ), 2 weeks ago on Amazon, currently there are no signs of weakness at usage. BUT, by seeing SMART, it seems the drive is failing …
I ran a a quick test with Data LifeGuard and HDDScan both are failing …
Also it seems that there are already a lot of Pending sectors and few Read errors …
Please what’s your Advice ? does this drive that I just installed need to go to RMA ?

Thanks you for your Help.

After few hours of data transfer ( I found corrupted files, luckily I’ve backups ), Pending Sector Count has increased from 1584 to 3952. I decided to do full formatting in order to force the hard drive to check bad sectors. Now, the drive has 196 reallocated sectors. And the smart checkers are red blinking… This new drive seems long term unreliable to store sensible files… so I decided to send it back while I can and order something else.

Case closed.
