I don't see that SMART Reporter is going to do anything on a MacBook Air - I read the FAQ and they sort of danced around the issue.

So is there any reason to use SMART Reporter with an SSD?

Yes, there is.

An SSD can experience a failure, and SMART Reporter can detect that failure.

As I discussed in an earlier thread, it's scanning for I/O errors in log files detected that my hard drive was failing even though no SMART error was ever generated.
