    One of my samsung evo 840 drives in my m18x r2 reported a SMART error today and rapid storage said one of my drives it at risk which I had to reset to normal. The smart readings are as follows showing some error at ID 05, B3, and B7. My other samsung evo does not report these errors and the current and worst values are at 100. Attached is the screengrab of the smart readings. Any ideas of what I should do in this situation?

    Hopefully a temporary hiccup. Drives are only 1 month old, but usually anything temporary in the case of sdd's is going to lead to future issues.

    The 840 Evo is a junk TLC drive.. Looks like yours is failing.. I would sell them cut your losses and get a MLC drive :)
