SUN Ultra 5 HDD compatibility

Hello everyone,

recently i revived long forgotten Sun Ultra 5 with the original four gig hardrive. After successful and joyful installation of latest NetBSD and some initional configuration i restarted the beast and noticed that the system struggled quite hard (audibly) to read certain data - followed by uncorrectable error reading wd0.

Thus, i concluded that the HDD died and it's time for replacement. I remember that Ultras were able to support EIDE harddrives up to 20GB or so when running Solaris 8, but alas the technology progressed
and i'm in search for a brand new HDD.

Question is - what kind of HDD (size-wise) would be compatible?
