Internal HDD for the DM800??

Can I basically purchase ANY internal HDD as long as it's SATA and 2.5''????

Or do I need to purchase a particular model etc etc??

I just want one that will be easy to install and run smootly without making my original dm800 too hot etc!

Any ideas on which one I should go for?

I am using a 4200rpm 160 gig hard drive that came in my Toshiba Laptop. Think it might be a Fujitsu model and it is sata. My thinking is the slower the rpm the less heat will be generated ? The drive works fine for both playback and recording.

any 2.5" SATA should work. Cant remember what I originally bought for mine but I made sure it was an energy saving one that's got some technology to also run quietly too which I am sure most manufacturers offer these days
