Defraggler had a little tool that shows the health of the HDD.

enter image description here

But I'm unsure what this all means. Could someone explain them, and which values are good and which are bad?

While you see the numbers, means the HDD is good. Once you stop seeing them, means its dead :) –  ldigas Nov 25 '11 at 16:34
    
Might as well copy and paste the SMART wiki page. Just a suggestion. –  surfasb Nov 25 '11 at 16:50
    
Is this SMART? Didn't know :) –  Simon Verbeke Nov 25 '11 at 17:11

I found a wiki here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/S.M.A.R.T.#Known_ATA_S.M.A.R.T._attributes

You will have to judge the values accordingly, relative to the HDD's specs.
