I don't really understand why you would think there could be the problem, maybe because of a possible conflict by being the same kind? If that's your concern, then no. The only "issue" is that you will have to rely on the serial number and/or port to identify which is being used on the software.

[strike]If I understand your question, you're asking if different model and sizes of HDD will work with each other, to which I answer: yeah dude you're good.

I have a WD blue HDD, Kingston SSD, and Samsung SSD, and they work fine together.

The only time different sizes and models matters is if you intend to do a RAID setup. You want to use the same model and sizes for that. I actually don't even think it'll work if you don't do at least that.

[/strike]

Upon rereading, I don't think I understand the question.

RAID will work with any drives combination you throw at it. The thing is, if you mix different models and brands, they all behave differently. As RAID depends on all of them working together, the logical recommendation is for all of them to be the same model within each array. That way you get the best possible performance instead of having one of the drives be bottlenecked by another.
