Hi as the title suggest we have a failed drive in our server, the orginal drives are Seagate Constellation ST3500414SS units, now I can't find one of these for sale outside of ebay (obviously I am not willing to risk a business server on ebay drives) can I replace it with any drive of the same spec?

Thank you

So long as the drive is of same or greater speed and same or greater capacity AND is SAS if it is a SAS drive that failed then YES.

I have had to replace several T610 drives over the last year and had no issues at all.

Surely you can use a drive with similar specs, though Dell's official replacements are better of course (tested thoroughly for compatibility, even if the brand might be different, but also it's already in the correct bay/cage/encasing).
