That is expected... because your Reallocated sector counts would need to reach 50 the threshold before the short and long test show failure...
In any case this smart value is a warning and an impending sign that the HDD would fail in the future ...it might take months or maybe a year to do so.... But do keep an eye on the reallocated sector count.... if it goes up rapidly... its time for replacement...
Again... try running the benchmark using HDD tune.
