and two are very interesting to this writer, both with mini10:

For hard drives alone, we have another:

In the latter (its basis is 64-bit Ubuntu), open Disks, and find the hard drive test suite by clicking the round icon at the upper-right corner; it appears to have the same functionality as SeaTools, without the driver problems of the Seagate downloadables.
