Samsung SMART Program Fail Cnt Total (parameter B5)

So.. I got a SMART fail count of 43696827 on a Samsung HD204UI drive in my NAS. That could/should be bad..

For the record, the complete SMART info on my ReadyNas is:

 Serial:   SxHxJxKBxxxxxx
 Firmware: 1AQ10001

SMART Attribute

Raw Read Error Rate non-zero, just over five years of use. Time to replace or what?
Just a fun fact, I have an identical drive in the same NAS, with the same (difference less than 100) number for this SMART Parameter B5, with a raw read error rate of 0.

Time to pay attention to this firmware update: Nope, my drives were manufactured after december 2010, and after that date, no new firmware was released for these drives.

I’ll just live with it, backup (more) often and perhaps, I’ll replace a disk (or two)..
