I got a 1TB WD10EVDS drive and extension cables for SATA and power. The drive just sits on the shelf next to the 7000. I put it on a couple of small blocks to allow more airflow around it. If you break off the tabs in the back, it makes a perfect slot to run the SATA and power cables out to the drive. Heat is no longer an issue with the HDD being external to the 7000. I expect that heat is what makes many of these units eventually fail in some way. It has been working fine for about six months now.
