esdi hard drive identification

One of the surplus stores in my area just got in a load of 5-1/4 form factor
hard drives. They look just like the ones my PDP-11/73's use (RD51 or 52,
can't recall). I believe my controller is a RQDX2, not a RQDX3. My drives
are 30mb.

I was wondering, is there an easy way (short of looking up the model
numbers) to visually determine if any of the drives are ESDI and might work
with my 11/73?
