    SMART, is it all its cracked up to be?

    I've got some old drives I want to test before I build up a machine out of old parts to sell to get some monies..

    I've installed Seatools and HD Tune Pro..

    Now, these two peices of software disagree with eachother straight off the bat, I havent even put a drive in on test yet but Seatools says both of my SSD's are fine, yet HD Tune Pro says that both of them have "C7 Ultra DMA CRC Error Count" warning's..

    Maybe its just SSD's being newer than the software and HDTP not reading them correctly, maybe its me..


    Are there any new, reliable ways of reading SMART data, dont mind if its a 15 day trial like HDTP as long as its good, only need it for two days to test a few drives...
