Is OK to use HP P/N: 507605-002 instead of 492620-B21?

Is OK to use HP P/N: 507605-002 instead of / or in the same RAID as HP P/N: 492620-B21?

I needed to expand my RAID in an HP storage Blade. I ordered 300GB Drives from a reseller and received HP P/N: 507605-002, all my other drives are: HP P/N: 492620-B21. I installed the 507605-002 drive after installing it in a Sled and did not get any error message.
I would like to know If what I did was a good decision or a bad one, especially that I will need to buy many more drives and would like to make the right choice especially toward protected my RAID 6 and the integrity and safety of my data?

I appreciate the Input of an expert in this regard.

Thx

In the hard disk table

DG0300BAMYR = 507605-002 = 492620-B21 = 493083-001 = Hot-Plug 300GB 10K rpm, SFF 2.5" Dual-Port SAS hard drive

Thank you for the explanation, However I am still confused as to why the drive that I received P/N: 507605-002 / HP GPN: 375863-016
Came in a sealed plastic bag without a SLED /Drive Tray?- I am a bit suspicious. Is there a way to verify whether such drives are HP Original or if they are an Imitation?. I would be happy to incur the charge of sending one unit to HP to verify. I do have a delpolyment that requires about 72 units of the same drives (Blades+MSA70). By buying the drives that have no SLED, the saving is huge by buying HP Imitation, the RISK is even larger. Attached is an image. I hope you can help!
