Current_Pending_Sector value on a brand new HDD

Hi,

I've got a new SSD and two new HDDs.

The SSD is ok, but I wonder if the two HDDs are ok, too.

The TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 is inside the PC case and at the beginning
it caused click noise and input/output errors only repeated shutdowns
made it accessible. The WD3200AAJS is used with a FANTEC DB-ALU2E
by USB. It automatically goes to sleep. If it goes to sleep as
e.g. /dev/sdd, it could wake up as /dev/sde and sometimes it could
completely hide. However, since my last reboot it goes to sleep
as /dev/sdb and wakes up as /dev/sdb. By buying the HDD and the USB
case separated, I hoped to get rid of the automatic sleep of external
green drives. FWIW when I had issues with the new external drive,
sometimes my old WD external drive was connected, too and there were no
issues with the old external drive.

It's possible that the mobo and/or the power supply are/is broken, that
might explain issues with the TOSHIBA DT01ACA100 and that there was a
Seek_Error_Rate when I run a script with "smrtctl" and "fsck
-vcckp" [2], some hours ago and that there isn't a Seek_Error_Rate
any more at the moment [1], but it doesn't explain the
Current_Pending_Sector [1] of the WD3200AAJS build-in the also
brand-new FANTEC DB-ALU2E.

At the moment everything is ok, both new HDDs don't cause issues
anymore, but I doubt a brand new drive inside a brand-new USB case
should show a Current_Pending_Sector value > 0.

I wonder if I should return one or both HDDs and that FANTEC DB-ALU2E?

Regards,
Ralf
