HP SATA drives are designed for the reliability and mass storage demanded by today's entry server and external storage environments. The SATA portfolio is categorized into two categories: Entry (ETY) and Midline (MDL) drives. HP SATA Entry drives are the lowest unit-cost solution for entry-level servers. HP SATA Midline drives are designed with economical reliability and performance for external storage, backups and archival applications. These high capacity drives provide the lowest $/GB to our customers. Both Entry and Midline SATA drives provide the best price advantage for non-mission critical applications with low workloads of 40% or less. HP SATA drives are available small form factor (3.5-inch) and large form factor (2.5-inch) and ship with a standard one year warranty.
This is a server drive
This review is from: HP Midline 454146-B21 1TB SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Retail
Pros: This is a hot-swap drive for HP servers using SAS / SATA controllers. It is recognized by HP SmartStart and has features like automatic firmware upgrade using HP utilities. It has special firmware to work with HP array controllers.
Cons: Aside from firmware and testing this is no differnt than any other enterprise class SATA drive. It is not made by HP - they just test and change the firmware
Other Thoughts: If you are expanding an HP server or SAN this is a good drive. If you are not using HP gear, there is no advantage over a standard drive.
