The normalised value is a small bastion of relative sanity in the extended rotten bong-hit that is wading through SMART. You get three values - its normalised value, its worst-ever value, and the threshold that it considers is 'failing'. This means that you can (more or less) say that if it is below that, the disk is screwed. However! This isn't all of it.
