Is the drive defective?

Specs: Windows 10 Pro x64, 2.793 GHz / 4096 MB

This is my SSD that I've been using for a while now. Until now I never really checked the health or anything. My friend insisted that I do.
These are the screenshots of the softwares and the SMART values they are giving.

According to my knowledge the SMART values or Current and Worst need to be above the Threshold value. So does this mean the drive is failing? or does it mean that these values are specific to the vendor and don't mean anything based on the final verdict these softwares are giving.

The SSD probably isn't defective but the software you used might be. Find a program specifically designed for SSDs. You should also update the SDD firmware. One of your screenshot shows the firmware as HC7110A. Version HC7110B fixes "An incompatibility with some SMART tools".

Yes, I updated the firmware and now the worst and current values for all attributes are 100 and 100 and threshold is 0.

For some attributes threshold is 5 and worst and current is 92. No where an attribute drops to threshold or below it.

Checked SMART real values on speccy and it shows only 2 on reallocated sectors count. 2 is not that high of a number to worry about. If it relocated 2 sectors and there's nothing to worry about, Right?
