External Hard Drive ?

I would like to buy a external hard drive but I have never bought one before, the hard drives in my Computer are W/D so should I stay with W/D ?, I have found this one on line and its in my price range but would it be OK with my Computer and Windows 7 ?, grateful for any advice please
