And, I'm still getting a 7.9 out of it on WEI. Use it or loose it!

Hibernation is a different story. It too is sequential but it's not like it needs to be fast. Personally, I don't use it and save the disk space. If I'm not going to be on my PC for several hours, I shut it down.

What program do you use to show that percentage?

Thanks,

My reading show 100% on SSD, but no percentages on other drives - just "good."
Does the percentage show on your other drives?

No. HDD are different. There's no Wear Leveling on HDDs which is the basis of the useful life on SSDs. On HDDs you'll get Good, Caution or Bad depending on sector health.
