Dell PowerEdge R720xd Hard Drives & Trays
The Dell PowerEdge R720xd server has two different hard drive chassis styles. The 2.5" small form factor (SFF) chassis will take a maximum of twenty-six (26) hard drives while the 3.5" large form factor (LFF) will accommodate up to twelve (12) plus an addition two (2) 2.5" drives in the back of the chassis.
SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) or SATA hard drives are available in either form factor whereas solid-state drives (SSDs) come in only 2.5" and require a special tray when installing in 3.5" drive bays. While SSD drives are usually fastest, SAS drives are generally more economical and quicker than SATA drives which tend to trade some performance for higher capacity.
The PowerEdge R720xd is designed to take advantage of newer 6Gbps hard drives, however, it is also backwards-compatible with older 3Gbps drives.
Dell OEM hard drives contain specific firmware created by Dell to optimize performance on Dell systems.
All hard drives below are shipped mounted in trays for the PowerEdge R720xd. Unless otherwise noted, they have been pulled from working servers and carry our 90-day parts replacement warranty.
Only healthy disks are approved for resale to our customers. All hard drives are cleaned, fully tested and vetted for surface defects and wear. Hard drives are formatted and wiped of any previous data via the latest DOD standards. We do NOT disassemble, modify or replace individual hard drive components as part of our refurbishing process.
Be sure to choose the correct size, capacity and speed for your machine.
