+ - How best to detect and display hard disk failure? 1

I like all of those nice lights that commercial server cases have, that shows you the state of each disk, but I haven't been able to find anything like this available for purchase, or DIY. Perhaps I'm lacking the proper term for that kind of equipment, and because of that I wasn't able to find it?"
