MSA2012i - off the shelf drives?

Picked up a refurb enclosure to add capacity to our 2012i. My question is, do I have to order HP's (expensive) SAS drives to populate this or can I just buy the same model drives on the open market and use the empty caddies I already have? I never thought about but this but apparently another mfr whose name starts with D was restricting controllers to reject drives that weren't running their "special" firmware.

 

Thanks...
