Pretty sure its normal. The status does say OK, but there is a WD Rep here if you want to ask SuperSoph_WD

Spin up time will gradually slow down, but I have rarely ever seen it go out of SMART ok. My two oldest Reds in my server have been going for 5 years. Spin up time, although slower, is still in spec.

Do you now how value do your two reds have, how much seconds? Just for comparasion.

In this case it looks normal. I would suggest to use the drives manufactures testing software as it has its own proprietary parameters and a more reliable read out. If worried you could also contact their support center.

Thanks for answer. This is picture from WD data lifeguard adn HD tune. So in your opinion what would be max normal value in seconds? I will contact WD support, it is probably everything ok, but I am just curious.

You could perform an in-depth online comparison (with similar HDDs) with the free speedfan tool.
I installed SpeedFan and when I press depth online test nothing happens?? Should I got some online information from speedfan for comparasion? Picture form speedfan:

A browser should open up, mine does. Maybe your antivirus or firewall is blocking it or something(?)
