feels like a good upgrade for ps4 or pc...
sub £100

It's said to be the best value to performance upgrade you can get for the PS4 and PS4 Pro particularly. It performs at SSD like speeds for frequently used data e.g. if there is a game you play regularly you will see the benefit of it. I got one from Amazon.de and it worked out about £82 (I got a warehouse one but even the new one should come in £10+ cheaper).

Still to be fair I believe this is the current best UK price so heated for that.

There was a better price from below... £86.90
I didn't wanted to post this as the trouble might be more than what's worth.

For PS4 you should save your money and just get a standard hard drive as SSD's make very little difference due to bandwidth limitations.

Oh!!!!!!
Another one who thinks this is a SSD!!!
This is SSHD mate!! a regular HDD with 8GB of SSD for faster caching...
Various tests have shown that this makes a marked improvement over the standard one...

Not true. The PS4 doesn't have any serious bandwidth restrictions that would be so severe as to stop you seeing the difference between a HDD and SSD or even SSHD as this actually is. The main limitation is that the PS4 (not sure if this was changed in the slim or pro) only has SATA 2 on it's internal SATA connector but this is not all that serious as no mechanical HDDs get anywhere near SATA 2 top speeds and even though faster SSDs can saturate a SATA 2 connection they will still give a substantial boost over a HDD.

It's the PS3 where a SSD is mostly pointless as that only has SATA 1 and anything much faster than a mechanical HDD will be bottlenecked...

I feel sorry for your "SHIFT" and "1" keys

I meant to add for anyone on the fence (for PS4 use) there is a good review here: http://www.eurogamer.net/articles/digitalfoundry-2017-seagate-firecuda-2tb-review and a video review by digital foundry on youtube. They show with repeated use (to get the frequently used data cached) the performance increases to SSD like levels...

I just got this after using flubit, paid £94 after list price on Amazon was £103. Ordered afternoon, arrived next day, has made my PS4 fly compared to stock drive, wwe 2k17 is worst game for loading times, loaded it played a game, got out, played again, to help create the cache file and it really flies now.

Any difference between the 2.5 and 3.5 for a desktop build apart from size?

I'd imagine the 3.5" Desktop drive will be a bit faster on non-cached data transfer thanks to (most) desktop drives employing the faster 7200RPM spindle speed, probably similar in cached transfers though I would have thought....

The ps4 does have serious bandwith/power handling problems with its HDDs :P - the difference between an ancient sata2 5400rpm HDD and sata3 SSD on a PC is crazyily astronomically higher specs both on paper and in reality, on the PS4 you will barely grab 10%

This sshd is a 'happy medium' - as storage space on the PS4 will always be the biggest need , the OS begins to whine at around 40 gig left (many games+their patches wanting 2-4x their required space to unpack/install), removing a chunk of precious SSD space too :(
