adding new hard drive

I would like add a new drive to my existing 3X 4.3Gb array with a controller Smart-2SL.
What sort of drive can I use ? I was thinking of adding a 18 Gb drive like the 143919-001.

Re: adding new hard drive

If you wish to add a drive and expand the existing array, this controller will NOT perform this function as it only has read and not write cache.
This controller will support Wide-Ultra SCSI, Fast-Wide SCSI-2, and Fast-SCSI-2 hard drives so an 18.2 gig drive is fine. If you add only 1, you will have to make it a Raid 0 Array. Option part 104660-001 would be OK
