My opinion is that complete hard drive failure and block-level media

That would depend on the recovery behavior of the drive for
block-level media failure. A drive whose firmware does excessive
(reports of up to 2 minutes) retries of a bad sector may be
indistinguishable from a failed drive. See previous discussions
of the firmware differences between desktop and enterprise drives.
