Can any hard-drives be bought and configured to work in the caddies inside this unit?

Or do you have to use a specific kind manufactured by Alesis?

1 Answer 1


According to the manufacturers website:

Caddies can be fitted with IDE/EIDE/ATA drive at 5,400/7,200/10,000 RPM up to 2TB

This means that you can get a drive from anywhere, but it only accepts the older PATA drives. Currently New Egg still has a few at < $100USD.

Any brand of drive will do, but I would recommend either Seagate or Western Digital.

    Ditto on Seagate and Western Digital. Many years of servicing will back me up.
