They have four drives and an optical bay adapter listed. All the drives will work. They do have different read and write speed capabilities. Consider what you use your drive for and how much you use it before deciding. Also consider the optical bay hard drive adapter if you want to install a second hard drive or SSD drive. External optical drives are much cheaper and will move on to your next machine. I prefer the LaCie models here:
