The supplier sale offer me "400-AJRR 300GB 15K RPM SAS 12Gbps 2.5in Hot-plug Hard Drive,3.5in HYB CARR" , I am not sure if this model of hard disk drive compatible with my server or not. the sale said it is compatible, so please help to advise any problem when I replace with this Hard disk drive, the server are running Win2008R2 and SQL 2008.

My Raid is PERC H710 Integrated RAID Cont roller, 512MB NV Cache, Full H eight

I used not certified Dell hard drives in Dell servers. I had to do it because I had no option to buy Dell hdd. I think hdd should work but you may have warning iDRAC.

400-AJRR is a Dell part number - meaning it will be a certified drive for the PERC's. It will be fine.

Yes all are Dell certify, from their sale description I found the speed is different, mine is SAS 6Gbps, their offer is 12Gbps, so any problem with that? by the way I don't understand what is the meaning of "2.5in Hot-plug Hard Drive,3.5in HYB CARR" , is it 2.5 inches or 3.5 inches, my failed hard disk is 3.5inches. Thanks

You can mix 2.5/3.5" drives in the server ... the hybrid carrier is a 3.5" carrier intended to hold a 2.5" drive.

Connection speed negotiation will be automatic, so it will negotiate a 6Gb connection with the controller even though the drive is capable of 12Gb.
