    Recent 80GB G2 has 1 bad sector

    petur

      I recently bought an X25M G2 (80GB) and after cloning my OS (ubuntu) onto it, I also upgraded to the latest firmware. I noticed SMART reports one (1) bad sector.

       

      model = SSDSA2M080G2GN

      firmware = 2CV102HD

       

      Questions:

      1) is this normal? My gut feeling says it isn't

      2) Should I RMA the drive? Can I RMA it or is there some minimum number of bad sector requirement (like some LSD manufacturers have with dead pixels)?

       

      I moved back to my velociraptors for now until I regain confidence that this SSD isn't going to die on me.

       

      thanks
