Perfectly reasonable, my Samsung HD154s are between 19°C and 25°C they have been running for months, the Hitachi is 36°C in the same drive bay.
When I hot swap drives the Samsungs are always cool to the touch when they come out, the Seagates and Hitachi feel much warmer so I believe the smart values.
