So far I've been using the Data LifeGuard Diagnostic tool in Win 7.. It does seem to detect errors on the bad drive (2 x 640gb, 1 is bad, 1 i'm unsure), but I still think it going too fast on the test, and not checking properly..

UBCD for DOS has a program called HDdat2 which I've used numerous times to find problematic drives.
