Interesting - thanks for that - any idea if they were pulls from
server-class, or desktop-class Dell hardware?  The reason I ask is that
whilst Google come up with a blank for that part number, the non-Dell
2TB Hitachi Deskstar (i.e. desktop-class drive) is the HDS722020ALA330,
whereas their Ultrastar drives have the part number HUA722020ALA330...

Anyone else had any 1TB or 2TB SATA drives in Poweredges?
