Ultrastar He10 compatibility with Desktop PC Systems


#1

I was interested in purchasing an Ultrastar He10 8TB 3.5-inch Helium Platform Enterprise Hard Drive for my desktop PC running Windows 7 and wanted to know if this drive was compatible? I see it’s rated as an Enterprise Drive so wasn’t sure of the drawbacks of that kind of setup since I wouldn’t be in an enterprise environment. The spec sheet didn’t mention it was rated to be used with Windows 7 so I wanted to check. I’ll be using this primarily for storage and light file work.

I was particularly interested in the HGST HUH728080ALE600 3.5" 8TB SATA 6Gb/s 7.2K RPM 128M 512E ISE HDD. I will be going directly through SATA III on the internal board without a RAID configuration. Just standard plug 'n play setup.

Thanks in advance!
