A green lamp means that there is nothing to worry, no lamp means that it is nothing you should care about. Any other color means that you should keep watching.

If any lamp shows another color than green (orange, red) this should also be reflected in either a lowered life expectany or an increased temperature.

Since the SSD used for the screenshots is new, everything looks okay as it should.
