I'm thinking of buying one of these. Can we put any U320 drive in this
or does it *have* to be
a HP OEM drive?

Thanks,

Joe

You can use any drive, but bear in mind that you wont get the pre-failure
warrenty benefits of the HPaq drives, and there may be a reduction in
monitorability via CIM and the like. Some of the tools and utilties will
bark that they arent from HPaq.. but it wont prevent them from working.
