Need some tech help with External Hard Drive

So I am taking advantage of the rebates offered by TigerDirect and getting this:

I need help in figuring out what hard drive I can stick in it. Any help is appreciated.


Found this will this work?

Re: Need some tech help with External Hard Drive

Compatible With 3.5" IDE Hard Drives.......

So the hard drive you would need would not be SATA

Re: Need some tech help with External Hard Drive

Looks like I should have done my homework. Are SATA drive superior to IDE drives?

Anyone know of any good deals on IDE drives?
