Dell Inspiron 5558 - Compatible Hard Drives

I have a dell Inspiron 5558.  The hard drive just crashed.  How can I determine which hard drives are compatible with my laptop?  Or do I need to go through Dell for this part?

Any 2.5", 9.5mm high HD, either SATA, or SSD will be fine.

Thank you so much for your answer.  I have one additional question...  I see SATA, SATA II and SATA III.  Does that matter?

I am looking at a WD Black 1TB Performance Mobile Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 32MB Cache 9.5 MM 2.5 Inch - WD10JPLX.

The Western Digital Black 1TB Performance Mobile Hard Disk Drive - 7200 RPM SATA 6 Gb/s 32MB Cache 9.5 MM 2.5 Inch - WD10JPLX, should work fine.
