Of course - they only list 72G because that's the highest-capacity
disk drive that THEY SOLD for use in a 280R.

Same way I don't think they list >36G as supported in a U5/U10 - 
they never sold that config, so they don't support it.

I've put 144G (142G?) drives in a Blade 1000 and they work just fine.
