SAS Raw Disk Sizes

Hello,

Does anyone know the actual disk sizes of the 450 and 600Gb SAS drives?  e.g. I know the 300Gb drives are actually 273Gb in size.

Thanks

Hi and welcome to the communities!

Are you sure you want to know raw disk sizes? I tend to say this is rather meaningless info, as usable capacity is something you should really look at.

Have a look at a recent (& rather fierce) discussion:

418,000 MB for 450 GB FC at least (same for SAS I believe)....handy actually for those of us who still use the old NetSize for quick calculations.
