I recently purchased a Toshiba 1GB P600. According to CrystalDiskInfo it has a reallocated sector count of 100 after being on for 193 hours.
Is this a fluke or some particularity I'm missing, or this is really bad for a new drive?

If I should send it back, how do I explain to Scan (where I purchased it) that there's an issue?

Are you looking at the Current normalised value or the raw value? The Current value represents a "health score", so 100 is perfect.
These are my current values;
The raw value is 00000000002E so 46. It's enough to panic CrystalDiskInfo.

I'm just running checkdisk on it.
Sorry if I'm being daft.
