I don't know.  I guess what you would need here is a hard drive
burn-in-type program, or perhaps a hard disk performance tester, to
stress-test it for a while and see if it holds up.

Again, I don't really know.  I'm thinking a disk
burn-in/stress-test/benchmark program.  The other option would be to
replace the controller with a known-good one (or at least, another new
one, preferably of a different model to eliminate any possible
incompatibilties, though I'd try that last since it might require a
software change to work).

Good luck.  Let us know what you find out.
