While drive makers don't fail a drive for one reallocated sector, all my
good drives have zero reallocated sectors. I am very suspect of a drive
with any reallocated sector counts. I've had a few stay very low (1-2),
but by and large once they start happening, they grow.
On a more positive note, I've had very few drives in the last five years
get reallocated sector count hits.
