Hi Cristian,

DL580 should be compatible with the Ultra320 hard drives.

Refer this quick specs:

The hard drive may tend to work in ultra2/ultra3 speeds.

So don't be surprised if the read/write performance is low!!!!

Hope this explains..

Hello Cristian,

Yes it does,check Hard Drives section, http://h18000.www1.hp.com/products/quickspecs/10635_div/10635_div.HTML

NOTE: All U320 Universal Hard Drives are backward compatible to U2 or U3 speeds. U320 drives require an optional U320 Smart Array Controller or U320 SCSI HBA to support U320 transfer rates.
