Will this SAS hard drive and controller work on my Desktop? Tags: SAS Controller Desktops Storage Hard Drives Last response: February 7, 2014 5:13 PM in Storage Share Blammo300 February 7, 2014 2:04:58 PM Someone recently gave me a brand new Seagate 300gb Cheetah SAS drive and a Dell SAS adapter. But I have not used this type of equipment before and was wondering if it will work in my regular desktop? I am confused because the ports are diffrent sizes. Is this adapter only for servers?
