I own a Sandisk Extreme SSD. It has been about 4-5 months that its 3 year warranty ended.
I noticed that in my last boot, it started with "Drive health: Poor", switched to "Normal". Then Poor, Normal and Poor at the final again! And these happened just in 20-25 min.
CrystalDiskinfo still says there is no problem. So does SMART tests of Dashboard app.
Which one should i trust? SMART results of Dashboard and CrystalDiskInfo ? Or Dashboard saying sometimes that Drive Health is Poor?
Thanks a lot!

execute code in terminal smartctl -x /dev/sda
(it is /dev/sda if ssd is your primary drive , sdb if its secondary drive)
you can see completed life of your drive from "percentage used endurance indicator" attribute (it will %100 when drive is near to death)
Seems to be ssd dashboard have pretty much issue with device health counters.
i have similiar issue , it cant report health very well. but smartctl works pretty good

Interestingly enough, i got the same report with 1444. I just updated to 2330 and now it's reporting NORMAL. Something ISN'T normal about that... Now I'm not sure if my drive is failing or in POOR condition as reported with 1444...
