Can I have two different manufcators of drives if both drives are same size and performance specs?

So I had RAID Failure in my primary drive this morning, the backup drive seems to be ok.  Unfortuntatly an iidentical drives is atleast 4-5 days aways.  There is a similiar drive by a different manufactor, with the same size and performance specs.  Do the drives have to be identical in everyway, or just in performance?

If you are using a newer drive with 4k sectors, don't mix that with one that can't do 4k sectors.
