One might ask oneself - what difference does it make unless you plan on buying another, in which case the fix is there? Do you think we all buy these things en-masse to test them?
You have the solution. Done!
I do appreciate the solution you've provided. And you're right, in a self-centered, practical sense, knowing at what rate those ssds are misaligned is fairly unimportant. However, I think my further curiosity portrays a desire to know how this may have occurred in the first place, and surprise that such a highly rated ssd would have such an issue.
I also felt a desire to respond because I felt that your statement "Silly question - by the Google given it seems obvious" was both harsh and incorrect. And now you've made another statement, "Do you think we all buy these things en-masse to test them?" that I think is uncalled for. I think my raising the question about the rate of misalignment on these drives is not entirely out of place, and not so inappropriate as to make me a target of ridicule.
I do appreciate your expertise though, and I imagine it may be difficult and frustrating for you to encounter people who know astonishingly less than you do on these issues
I appreciate your help
