I've never used anything but WD AV-GP drives in 5 units I have upgraded so it should be fine. In fact it's probably the best fit but I have always used them internally. Why would anyone want what is essentially 2 power cords, two elec outlets occupied and 2 power supplies running? Seems silly to me! More space, more heat, More electricity, more clutter.. No thanks. All you really need is an internal drive upgrade but you have to "bake it" so to speak. But even that can be found here for free.
1 - Roamio Plus with 3TB upgrade
2 - Tivo mini
