Both drives have logged read errors under Linux
kernel, both report
drive is healthy status (SMART overall-health self-assessment test
result: PASSED), and both say "Completed: read failure" almost
immediately when I do a SMART self test (short test or long).
I don't trust the "overall health".
If a short or long test fails, I chuck the drive.
Of course. I'm just surprised that a self test can fail yet the drive still report
itself as healthy.
