Not compatible with PERC 6/i Adapters
This review is from: Dell 342-2340 3TB 7200 RPM Serial Attached SCSI 3.5" Internal Hard Drive
Pros: High capacity Enterprise, near-line storage compatible with Dell servers. Equipped with Hot-plug, removable drive tray specifically for Dell servers.
Cons: According to the Dell tech I spoke with (after observing that my Dell T310 server equipped with a PERC 6/i adapter was reporting that the drive "failed"), the drive is not compatible with that particular PERC adapter. Symptoms include inserting drive, powering on (or hot-plugging the drive) green flashing light, then a very brief period of a solid green light, then continuous flashing amber light. If your server is so equipped, the LED display on the front of the case will also glow amber.
Other Thoughts: According to the Dell person I spoke with, the PERC 6/i adapter (in my T310 server) only supports drives up to 2.2TB. If you are purchasing this 3TB drive, I strongly recommend contacting Dell to verify compatibility with your server (particularly older servers) prior to purchase.
