    If you get any more sector reallocations, then I'd be concerned.
    The SATA downshift will be related to the DMA error: I suspect cabling with that one, nothing tragic - might even have been a power-off whilst active. In fact all 4 could be related, if the drive was writing at the time.

    "watch and act". Keep an eye on it, and maybe step up your backup game.

    Nothing there that I can't afford to lose ;)
    It's just a HTPC..
    But I keep getting pauses and buffering while watching videos.. Wondering if its due to this..
