Speaking of hard drive manufacturers (we are talking about HDD here not SSD) there really are only three that are of any consequence: Western Digital, Seagate and Toshiba. Most of the other significant brands have been acquired and are now made by one of these big three.

Seagate -- Quantum, Maxtor, Samsung
Toshiba -- Fujitsu
Western Digital -- Hitachi, IBM

The reason Toshiba is not directly linked for a HDD test is that their test does not work for all models of their drives; therefore, owners of a Toshiba-made disk should use a generic HDD testing application.
