Why WD in particular? It is more important to know what type of interface it is using, other than that, a 2.5" drive should fit in any 2.5" caddy.

Pick any one you like

Newegg.com - Computer Hardware,Computer Accessories,External Enclosures,2.5"

As kmote said, the interface is all you need. All the external WDs have a drive in them.

I use a BlacX from ThermalTake as my external dock. It allows me to pop in a SATA drive use it, pop it out, and drop in another one. The model I have also acts as a USB hub (four ports).

I've seen those. They are nice to have. Although, I have more PATA drives than SATA.

I've gotten rid of all my PATA drives. The only ones here are in my wife's and her mom's computers. If push comes to shone I could always pop one in my rig as I have IDE ports... I just don't use 'em.
