Anyone know if the drive inside of this can be removed and used as an internal e.g. to upgrade a laptop or PS4?

Ditto - I would like to know too. It looks a bit fat to fit though... can anyone else comment?

I think I have found the answer myself. On amazon they have it (temp OOS) but if you look in the questions and answers you can find out someone there did it, ignore all the yes answers as they did it with the smaller 2TB one (amazon groups all the capacities causing confusion) but someone did actually try with the 4TB one:
"IT works fine - but the 4TB version is a little to thick so you can't fit it inside the PS4 without modding the PS4 first - I have a SATA extender in mine and the HD sat on the top - works fine but isn't as nice as having the case shut :)"

I'd be tempted to try with the extender like he has, as I'd love to have a 4TB PS4 but I'd be a bit worried just leaving the bare drive sticking out. Perhaps if you could get a nice enclosure, shame it isn't just a case of sticking it in though, think my 2TB might have to do until they get thinner or someone comes up with a more elegant solution....

According to Q&A's on Amazon the 4TB drive is a bit too thick to fit into the PS4 without modding it so unfortunately it seems not.

PS4 only takes up to a 2tb hhd. anything bigger is a waste of time. surely.

That used to be the case but recent firmware can support up to 4tb. Of course there is still the physical limitation that 4tb hdds tend to be bigger (taller) than normal.

Fast tracked with Quidoco only 1.1%

There is also a deal to get McAfee Internet Security 2016 - Unlimited Device. for free with it also.

Nice little addition to my Server as it has 2 spaces for 2.5 drives.

Thanks OP

It's too thick, I attempted to fit it in my Playstation Pro as well as the original PS4. It was appox 4mm thicker than the given space.

Yes it works. I have ripped the drive out of it a few weeks ago and it works fine in my PS4.

Argos cancelled my Fast Track order citing item is out of stock. Now I will loose out both on quidco and also my Amex offer. Customer Service is useless and have asked to report to Head Office.

Why is this so hot when Argos are stating it's only a £10 saving on the regular price?
Am I missing something?

The post above yours said it was too tight a fit for a PS4 by about 4mm. Did you have to do anything special to make it fit or are there different versions of the original PS4?

Deals must be pretty thin on the ground for an offer of less than 10% off to be considered hot.
