Well the right place to look would indeed have been the SMART data
providing the drive didn't get into a state it couldn't update it.
Hardware error comes from the drive deciding something is wrong (or a
raid card faking it I guess). That covers everything from power
fluctuations and overheating through firmware consistency failures and

If you pull the drive and test it in another box does it show the same ?
And what does a scsi verify have to say ?
