Hey all,
            Just speaking to our Dell server sales rep and he seemed to 
be of the opinion that you can put non-dell disks into an R710 if your 
running the latest PERC firmware. Does anyone know if this is true? I 
know it didn't used to be was wondering if the situation had changed.

We're running a PERC 6/i with 450Gb SAS Disks which are actually made by 
Seagate but brought from Dell.
