Need to add drives to Raid 5

I would just get the latest drives from that manufacturer. If you have WD drives then you need to ensure the drives have similar features.

Sorry, I meant to add, if these don't work out, you should try to match as closely as possible. Seagate is the only vendor that used 5900 rpm, every other vendor uses 5400 rpm for their low power drives. I think if you find 2TB 5400 rpm SATA 6GB drives from WD or Hitachi you should be in good shape. Are you using a RAID controller? If so, which brand and model?
