With Console, you could run File > New System Log Query (Option-Command-N) to create a simple query like:

Or run this shell command:

bzgrep 'I/O error' /var/log/system.log*
Or do something similar with the syslog command.

None of those methods alerts you of errors when they happen, as utilities like SMARTreporter or a wrapper script for the aforementioned commands can. And I think SMARTreporter can keep a history log of events that's retained longer than the default system logs.
