Here is part of smartctl -a for the slow one, with some columns
edited out so that it will fit without wrapping.  The disk is old but
it isn't throwing any conventional sorts of errors:

ID# ATTRIBUTE_NAME          FLAG       UPDATED  WHEN_FAILED RAW_VALUE
  1 Raw_Read_Error_Rate     0x000b     Always       -       0
  3 Spin_Up_Time            0x0007     Always       -       2658
  4 Start_Stop_Count        0x0032     Always       -       88
  5 Reallocated_Sector_Ct   0x0033     Always       -       0
  7 Seek_Error_Rate         0x000b     Always       -       0
  9 Power_On_Hours          0x0032     Always       -       44036
