[QUOTE=shae;2102638]With enough meta-data included it could be possible to make sense of it afterwards, and possibly also update the presentation method after more “evidence” is gathered about drive behavior.[/QUOTE]Yes, it is possible: I’ve done that with my own database for my own collection, and I like to think that my analysis results are statistically sound and reliable.
Not an easy task BTW: only after about +/- 150 comparative scans + metadata were collected and cross-checked, could I start making some sense out of the mess it was… LOL - now I have about 2000+ checks in this database, and I’m very confident in the information I get from the statistical cross-checks.
I’ve always been interested in an online database dedicated to media stability in real-life conditions. I’m not sure many users would agree to go through the hassle of collecting all the mandatory relevant meta-data, though.
