Dell servers block un-Dell HDDs

Thumb Up

good deal for everybody

Now we won't have to worry about some joker before us from installing non-Dell drives into a box, and have the new staff from trying to get Dell to replace a part that they did not sell to us in the first place. This will allow Dell to lower its warranty prices, which will lower the costs of the support contracts, which is why most of us go with Dell to begin with.. the SUPERIOR tech support that sets them above the rest.


irritatingly simple minded

But Dell DOES have the right to limit people from buying a crappy hdd and trying to get the warranty to cover it...
