HP Ultra320 SCSI hard drive provides a maximum data transfer rate of 320 MB/s - twice the rate of Ultra3 systems. This Universal Hard Disk Drive provides the ability to hot plug between various HP Ultra320, Ultra3 and Ultra2 SCSI platforms. All HP Hard Disk Drives are required to meet our rigorous standards for reliability and performance. This drive is intended for use in today's demanding, data-critical enterprise environments.
Well, I like it.
Pros: I threw 6 of these in my DL 380 G3, and I couldn't be happier! Fast, reasonable noise, and reliable... 8 months later, they're still going strong (They're being used in RAID 0+1 for a data center backup service solution).
Cons: It's not SAS, and it will burn a hole in your pocket if you don't have federal funding.
Other Thoughts: Not sure if it was the drives or my previous raid controller, but these drives didn't seem to want to play nice with my 6404 controller. I swapped out the 6404 and used the regular 5i that comes with the proliants, and it worked fine.
