RAID functions are independent of the HD. You don't need special HDs, that was the original purpose of RAID, to basically use cheap generic disks to build large high performance arrays. Ideally, you want to use identical HDs, but it usually doesn't matter. The way most controllers work, if you have different HDs, performance will match the slower drive(s). If your drives are of different sizes in a striped or redundant array (but not a JBOD array), you lose the extra space on the larger drive.
