I purchased brand new DELL PowerEdge T320 Server with PERC H710 Raid Controller.
It came with 4 SAS 600GB Hard Drives (on RAID 10) from DELL and now trying to order two 2TB SATA 7200rpm 6Gbps HDs to it.
When I asked DELL for the price, they came out to be $250 each.
But that is too high. The Seagate Enterprise Capacity 3.5-Inch HDD (Constellation ES) 2TB 7200RPM SATA 6Gbps 128 MB Cache Internal Bare Drive ST2000NM0033) is only $170 from amazon.com. Here is the link:
It appears I can order a tray (DELL Part#: X968D, <$20 from Etailer ) separately from DELL.
Dell technician told me that wherever I buy the hard drive, make sure that it has DELL Firmware.
If you personally purchased the 2TB HD and Trays separately for PowerEdge T320, would you mind give me the good place to buy these?
