Doh! Appologies - Scan is mains powered so can't compare.

Removing posts now

So this being a 2.5" drive - Anyone know if the internal drive can be used in a PS3 or Xbox.

Wouldn't touch Seagate with a barge pole. Terrible reliability

I used to repair computers and the amount of Seagate hard drives I'd see fail on a daily basis, you'd wonder why there wasn't a product recall! Admittedly these were older generation Seagate hard drives but when every other failed hard drive was a Seagate it makes you wonder what their quality control is like!
