Find out the model of your hard drive and look it up.

You can often get the model from /sys/.


Code:
$ awk '{ print FILENAME, $0 }' /sys/class/block/sd[a-z]/device/model

/sys/class/block/sda/device/model ST2000DL003-9VT1
/sys/class/block/sdb/device/model ST32000542AS
/sys/class/block/sdc/device/model Maxtor 6L160P0

You need to load the hdparm package. It is not loaded by default.
