Whats the largest SATA I can use in MSA 20?

I'm looking to buy MSA20 and use it as a disk-to-disk backup solution. However, I want to pack it with 400gig SATA that have the native command queueing from Hitachi. The documentation on HP's website say max supported size is 3TB with HP's 250GB SATA drives.

Can I use SATA drives bigger than 250GB in the MSA 20?

Thanks!

Mike,

I believe 250Gb is still the max. supported size, however this may change in future F/W updates.

Mike,

250 GB Sata is the largest supported size.
