Not to me.
However, you know that there are specific disc test utilities out there. For example,
one on there site, a small CD you can download and boot with (it as a floppy before). You
test the disk with it. It has to be good, because if it says a disk is bad, you print a
directly and send it back on warranty.
Basically, it can do the same as the internal SMART tests, but from outside. Plus, the
I suppose other manufacturers have their own utilities.
