HDD testing: Replacement for DFT?

Does anyone know of a good replacement for Hitachi's Drive Fitness Test (DFT)? DFT, while very convienient for being bootable, often doesn't detect drives unless the SATA config is set to compatability/IDE, and we seem to be getting more false positives lately via DFT. We like Western Digital's Data Lifeguard (and SeaTools for Seagate drives), but IIRC it doesn't have a bootable version. Are there any more modern HDD testing tools that are bootable, don't have issues with AHCI, and, now that we're getting more Windows 8 machines into the shop, works with UEFI? Thanks!
