Hi,

Do I have to start worrying about this SSD ?

You're nowhere near the drive's specified write endurance, and CrystalDiskInfo seems to think you've still got 95% of the drive's life remaining. So no?

Yes, I would worry. Uncorrected errors are usually the early warning sign of failure. The 95% number is merely a wear number, not an indication of potential malfunction.

Okay, I'm planning on using it as a Boot Drive.

The machine will be used for basic photo editing and web browsing purposes.

@roncat - The uncorrectable error value appears to have been normalized to be a health percentage or something. The raw value is 0. The drive is likely fine.
