Just pick up a SCSI drive and a consumer ATA drive.

Feel their weight.

You don't have to look inside to tell the difference.
At one point stereo manufacturers put weights in the case just to make them heavier.
The older ones weighed more and the consumer liked heavy stereos.

Be careful what you measure.

I suggest you read this on the difference between enterprise/SCSI and

 This is exactly the kind of vendor propaganda I was talking about

 It does have a bunch of FUD such as 'oh yeah we do a lot more
 drive characterization during manufacturing'.
