ST3500630AS disk died in warranty time. I send broken disk, and receive replacement.
I check SMART data, and WOW!Raw Read Error Rate 62 Watch
Warning: Raw Read Error Rate is below the average limits (100-119)
same bad values in Hardware ECC Recovered
What shall I do??

The S.M.A.R.T. attributes are specific parameters of various parts of a disk. S.M.A.R.T. uses attributes to monitor the disk condition. SMART data is not connected to "these kinds of tests".
It is property of this physical device. So, I don't believe you, Mr JanJanssen

Please, don't lie!!
I said "I don't believe you" NOT " I did not want hear the answer!"
Your respond is your opinion, not the true fact.I asked about S.M.A.R.T. in computer store, they said, that bad data in S.M.A.R.T.- good enough reason for HDD return!

Raw Read Error Rate and Hardware ECC Recovered numbers are informational and do not indicate a problem.
The SMART utility is warning that the Raw Read Error Rate is lower than average. Silly thing to complain about and it will probably go away when you start using the drive more (you may not have used the drive enough for the number to be calcualted).
The numbers to pay attention to are the Crrent Pending or Reloacted Sector numbers. If they start rising then run a Seagate disk check as a precaution.
