Either of the following will produce better output.

HD Sentinel (DOS / Windows / Linux):

HDDScan for Windows:

See this article for an explanation of the SMART attributes:

The "life time write from host" attribute is a count of the total number of sectors written to the drive by your PC during the drive's lifetime, ie Total LBAs Written.
