    Best way is to note the model number and look it up!

    I don't know of any software that will do this accurately.

    For just comparision test run, you can use the
    Drive Speed Test from exibitionsoftware.com

    Of course, Steve Gibson's SpinRite give you more detail on your hard drive. Here is a screen shoot:

    Go to www.grc.com and check out Spinrite. It is not free!

    LOL... Linux with Window's drive naming conventions?

    To tell the truth I didn't realize you had just copied and pasted from grc.com. I thought it was a window from one of your machines running spinrite.... I know you've been around a while so I figured it was just one of your old machines....
