View Full Version : SSD Power On hours huge value

03-09-2014, 10:01 PM
I own a G75vw from December 2012 (so about an year and 3 months). I've bought it brand new with warranty. Today I've checked my SSD s.m.a.r.t. data and here is what I get: http://1drv.ms/1dG1QxO

22493 Power On hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ....that's over over two and a half years....my HDD has only around 4000 power on hours. So the question is: did Asus provide me with a refurbished SSD or/and notebook? Because at over $2,000, I expected it to be brand new.

By the way, the SSD is a LiteON LAT-256m3s

UPDATE: just found out that the release date of this model of SSD is 07 Jul 2012 ....so less than 2 years ago ...I suspect a S.M.A.R.T. counting error. Could this affect the drive's performance in any way? Is there a reason to RMA it?

From July 2012 mine is the same as yours and shows 23327 power on hours. I did check mine when it was fairly new and if I remember right is was showing 200 or so hours.
Also my power cycles are 1106. I'm not worried not sure how long Liteonit warranty is?

I don't know how long liteon it warranty is...all I know is that I have almost 10 months or so left from the notebook's warranty. From what you say it may be a 'power on hours' issue...

I don't really think its a issue, I've been running mine about 6 months longer than you have yours and I'm not having any issues at all HD Tune shows no errors at all. I didn't mention that HD Tune did also report I've had 7 hard unsafe shut downs during this 18 month period
