I've got a box of hard drives I am supposed to be testing and some of them are apparently enterprise class and some aren't. I've looked around a little and there is lots of information about what an enterprise drive is, but not how to actually tell the difference between a regular and enterprise drive. So does anyone know, is there some way to tell from the stuff printed on the drive or a program that identifies the class of drive?

Thanks for any help!

You go by model/series number, the drives look and can connect the same way. For example a Seagate Barracuda is a consumer drive and a Seagate Constellation is an Enterprise drive. However if they are SAS drives then they have a different connector, it looks similar to a SATA data and power connector but its unified into a single connector with no break between them.
