WDC WD5000BEVT - Seek Error Rate [Normal]

Hey guys,

I just purchased this hard drive earlier today and I ran a S.M.A.R.T. analysis and I realized that

Attribute Current Raw Overall
10 Raw Read Error Rate 200 0 Very good
10 Spin Up Time 186 1700 Very good
10 Start/Stop Count 100 46 Very good
10 Reallocated Sector Count 200 0 Very good
1 Seek Error Rate 100 0 Normal
10 Power On Hours Count 100 7 Very good
10 Spin Retry Count 100 0 Very good
10 Calibration Retry Count 100 0 Very good
10 Power Cycle Count 100 9 Very good
10 GSense Error Rate 97 3 Very good
10 Power Off Retract Count 200 2 Very good
10 Load Cycle Count 200 274 Very good
10 Reallocated Event Count 200 0 Very good
10 Current Pending Sector 200 0 Very good
10 Offline Uncorrectable Sector Count 100 0 Very good
10 Ultra DMA CRC Error Rate 200 0 Very good
10 Write Error Rate 100 0 Very good

my Seek Error Rate is "Normal" instead of "Very good." The value is 100 instead of 200. I did run WD's diagnostic test and it passed. I'm just worried that I received a defective drive.

Should I be concerned with this? or is this normal?

Thank you very much guys!

  1. Don't look for problems where they don't exist. It passed the WD diagnostics that's what counts.
    I've had heaps of WD drives over the years, never tested any, never had a problem with any of them. I've got 10 here now ranging from 5 years ago to the last one I got a few months back.
