How many "Host writes" on a new 320series SSD?

Hello,

I've got a new 120GB 320series Intel SSD. The Package was sealed.

There are about 40GB more "Host writes" (smart, SSD-Toolbox) on the Drive then I did. (Disk Space in use after first installation ~40GB, s.m.a.r.t. value "Host writes" ~80GB)

How ist this possible?

P.S. The "Power On hours count" value is 2. But the Drive ist just more than 5 hours in use for Software installation.

Best regards from Italy

I would not worry about it too much. Others have reported brand new SSDs with a GB of writes.... I suspect is just Intel validation tests.
