A tool was published by Landmark called "Align It" and ran on MS-DOS. I
don't know if you can find it, but it was a pretty decent tester and
even provides a test log for each drive.
I don't know if the guys at Accurite still have Drive Probe (a similar
product to AlignIt) in stock, but they seem to still be selling it:
