Thanks all.

I used
	sudo hdparm -I /dev/sdx | grep Model ; sudo hdparm -I /dev/sdx | grep  

to do the job.

My firmware version on both Seagate ST3750330AS drives is reportedly  
one of the problematic ones (SD15) but because I'm not experiencing  
any problems at the moment I'm somewhat reluctant to risk playing  
around with the drive firmware.  In the meantime daily backups and  
SMART reports as well as crossed fingers will hopefully save the day.
