You can use this, however a portable hard drive might be better as this will always be powered on via the mains. Not sure if it will keep the disk spinning all the time, I would think not however I have a memory of reading an article saying the the xbox was not spinning down external powered drives.

What would be inside one of these units is it a 2.5 inch harddrive or what thinking you could potentially crack it open and make a sizable upgrade to my ps4

It's a 3.5 inside these, no good for ps4

Agreed, thank you. Will continue my hunt for a white WD 2TB ultra passport. wish I got one for £65 on amazon last week. It's £85 now!!!

I say this everytime, FAILED ONCE WILL FAIL AGAIN, maybe I just FAIL in convincing people. Had a few of these in the past of different sizes, all went wrong.

IF WD HAD ANY FAITH THE WARRANTY WOULD BE LONGER, it's cheap for that reason, but your data your loss!

I agree completely... but.... if WD had any faith in their products it wouldn't come with just a poxy 6 month warranty.

No its recertified, you don't know what failed, if it even failed, or if anything had to be replaced. It has to be recertified and fully tested at the factory. I have been using a recertified drive for a few years and it's fine I also got another 4 months ago and is fine, on 24/7.

You should never lose important data when a drive fails because if its important you shouldn't have one Copy of it in one place.

Having recently invested in a NAS (Synology) I'd prefer to spend a little more and go for a RAID mirroring setup. At least then if one of the drives fails you've got a duplicate of the data whilst you get that drive fixed. Yes there's the location risk (so if one drive gets eaten by the dog then so could the other) but it does at least ensure that everything is automatically backed up.
