Summary: Ordered as a direct, Dell OEM equivalent drive for a failed unit in a RAID 10 array on a Dell PE T710 server. This drive will not negotiate a raw SATA connection with the controller higher than 1.5Gbps (half the nominal speed).
Disk drive sold as new with over 100 days of turn time on them.

Summary: Well it seems that the 'NEW' drive I bought wasn't. I have two drives in my computer. A Western Digital drive who's SMART data say that is has 730 days of run time on it. I bought this drive after the Western Digital drive and this drive now has over 830 days of run time on it.
