Dell PowerEdge R520 Hard Drives

The Dell PowerEdge R520 server has two different hard drive chassis styles. Both are designed for 3.5" drives, however, 2.5" small form factor (SFF) drives can also be used when installed in 2.5" to 3.5" adapter trays. Chassis will accommodate either four (4) or eight (8) hard drives.

SAS (Serial Attached SCSI) or SATA hard drives are available in either form factor whereas solid-state drives (SSDs) come in only 2.5". 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 R520 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 R520. 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.
