If they find out you are not using an MS device they can brick your console (ban it from live altogether).  If you are thinking of purchasing a drive online be very aware that some unreputable dealers have been known to stick a false MS sticker on 3rd party drives.

OP just purchase an official MS HDD for your console.
It may cost a little more now but in the long run it will save you a lot of money.

Amazon is a reputable dealer so you should be ok.  Knock yourself out.

The problem with Amazon is that they don't police Amazon Marketplace sellers too closely. Go to the full listing page and pick out the one sold directly by Amazon. Avoid third parties unless you know for sure they're legitimate.
