The description on the website I bought from states it takes a 3.5 hard drive and not 2.5.

Yet when I tried to put the bracket on it to fix inside the receiver the screws were to short to fit it as it should.

OK - maybe that's the older standard 3.5 drive and you're meant to use the more usual slimmer version then?
My Techno takes 2.5s and I simply put it in without screwing it as the machine never moves.

A 3.5 inch drive is a 3.5 inch drive, the mounting holes are standard. Duo should be ok with 3.5 but can use a bracket to fit 2.5 also. HDs vibrate and should be securely mounted to avoid issues.

May be limited to 1tb then. Best bet is to go over to the WoS forums and ask there. Or drop them an email, they are normally quicky replying

Why limited?
Capacity of disc doesn't affect size of drive.

Although I haven't looked, that's what I would have thought, but what other explanation is there?
I agree too about the principle of screwing the drive in but mine works perfectly without.

3.5 HDDs vary quite a bit in thickness
