MacBook Pro eSATA Support for S.M.A.R.T. Status

Last updated 2010-05-18 - Send Feedback
Related: eSATA, MacBook, MacBook Pro

S.M.A.R.T status is important for detecting imminent drive failures and other issues that could cause data loss (eg excessive bad blocks).

The OWC Slim and Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro both report SMART status, but the Sonnet Edge does not.

OWC Slim

The OWC has the correct disk description, correct connection type and verifies SMART status.

Smart status is supported by the OWC Slim ExpressCard

Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro

The Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro is reported as an internal drive, which is a bit odd. But it does verify SMART status.

Smart status is supported by the Sonnet Tempo SATA Pro

Sonnet SATA Edge

The Sonnet Edge not only mis-spells the drive name, but does not support SMART status. Oddly, it is reported as a SCSSI device also.

Smart status is NOT supported by the Sonnet Edge
