Samsung Sky HD Box, What drive?

Hi, I want to put a 1TB drive into my Samsung Sky HD box.

What drive should I choose? Thanks! :)

Just did this a little before Christmas and I used a 1TB Samsung HD103SJ Spinpoint F3.
Available for about £40 from most places.
I've not had one problem with it since installing it and its very quiet.

It took a lot of reading to find one that people actually said would work and was still available. Most other Samsung drives don't work in it.
I did have list of about 6 drives but can't remember where I found it.

Thankyou sir! :) I must get to purchasing.

Would you think the replacement is straightforward enough? I have experience with installing hard drives in Dekstop PC's and laptops, and in USB enclosures. Is it similar to this?

Possibly too late, but you can read my other postings regarding a WD EACS 1tb Drive into a Sammy. Working beautifully so far.....
