There is a standard size with standard mounting hole locations for 2.5" (laptop-sized) drives, and in general any laptop drive should fit into any piece of equipment designed for laptop drives.

BUT - there are a few 2.5" drives out there that are a little different. For example, I understand that the WD Velociraptor is a 2.5" drive but is too thick to fit in a standard 2.5" drive bay.
