Can I connect a MAXTOR SATA hard drive with SATA/300 connectivity in a DELL Optiplex GX280 with SATA SMART II?
Posted on 2006-05-06
I've a DELL Optiplex GX280. Its product specification said that its storage can accept 40, 80, 160, 250 SATA with SMART II. I'd like to upgrade the hard drive. The current hard drive is 80 GB. In Staples, I find one Maxtor SATA hard drive of 300 GB with SATA/300 connectivity. I'd like to be sure that I can connect this SATA (/300) using the existing connectivity (SMART II) inside DELL machine and the hard drive can be detected and work connrectly with the machine.
If you've any idea about this, please help.
Thanks a lot,
