It's the "enclosure" that is the key to the puzzle...

The drive will most definently work... but it is the enclosure that communicates with the HR20/21

I believe this is the full retail boxed version of the WD10EACS - same drive different packaging. I have one of both and they work fine in the Antec MX-1 cases.

I don't really know. I have not looked into any esata RAID systems. 1tb was enough for me.

I believe it's your only option in this case. The HR20/21 will not use more than one drive. The only way to use more than one drive is with RAID hardware that presents the array to the HR20/21 as a single drive.
