Default Samsung drives for TiVo upgrade

Reading this and other forums a favoured drive seemed to be the Samsung
SV1204H 120 gig, 5400 rpm, UDMA100.

They seem to out of stock nearly everywhere, but the successor drive (SP
1203N) is in stock at Savastore and Dabs and is well priced (around 62 plus
VAT). It's got the same three-year warranty and 'quiet operation' design.

The spec is 120 gig, 7200 rpm, UDMA 133. Will the higher spec be a problem
for TiVo use? I know that slower drives were recommended.

Thanks in advance.

A higher spec drive may produce more noise and more heat. Other
than that it won't be a problem.
