Seagate ST......... compatible with E510?

Jump to solution

Good morning,

I just got an ad from Tiger Direct. They are selling a Seagate ST250DM000 Sata6 H/drive for 37.99.  Sounds like a good deal to me but is it compatible to my Dell E510?    I'm using a WD 160GB now and would like to get a spare anyway.

Many thanks,

Mike

That should work OK.  (I have an E510 too).  

For not much more you could get a 500GB drive.  HERE is a Western Digital (usually rated higher than Seagate) for $44.99 with promo code that ends today.  It is also a 7200 RPM drive which will be faster than a 5200 RPM drive.
