    137 gig is the limit unless you use LBA48, which is recommended. All drives work fine...you can use slower 5400 rpm drives, but there aren't many in larger sizes.

    I think nobody has bothered to respond to this question as it's clear you have a lot of research to do. Start with the stickies at the top of the forum pages and check out Steve Jenkin's guide.
