SSD failed S.M.A.R.T test

I've got a pretty nice gaming rig set up and this morning I was running Eurosofts Diagnostic utilities and it displayed a message indicating that my OCZ agility 3 120GB SSD failed a S.M.A.R.T test.

I haven't noticed any performance issues, the boot time hasn't changed at all. I'm just wondering if this is a major issue or if perhaps it was just a fluke or something.

All feedback is appreciated!

    I uploaded a screenshot here if you wanna take a peek, would have been a lot to write down.

  3. Use the SMART utility that is part of OCZ's Toolbox to verify that something really is wrong with your Agility 3: http://ocz.com/consumer/download/firmware

    This is the data provided by their SMART DATA utility. Pretty sure this is bad... I guess it's good it has a three year warranty though.

    Sorry, I don't know how to read SMART data. Probably best to ask the staff at OCZ's Support Forum. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/answers/id-1989324/ssd-failed-test.html

    I have almost exactly the same issues as you. My OCZ Vertex 3 shows huge read errors in S.M.A.R.T. attributes 1, 195, 201, and 204, but they're all the same numbers (69 million +). If they were all different then you might have something to worry about.

    I just got off the phone with OCZ tech support in San Jose, CA, and the rep told me not to worry about it. Using your OCZ Toolbox app, your SSD's life curve SMART attribute is what you should watch; "0" is perfect, which is what both you and I have, so there's no need to worry.
