It's impressively compact - 0.17 x 0.05 x 0.13 millimetres!

I'd be worried about losing it ;-)

the 2.5tb is a typo, the usb 2.0 shows backward compatibility, and don't believe the 0.17 x 0.05 x 0.13 mm dimensions.
the 0.36 kg bit is probably correct though.

Tempted. Don't really need 2tb for a backup drive, but this certainly is a good price!
Would this drive have a sata connection internally or just a USB if I wanted to take the drive out of its case?

It'll be fine for Xbox One. Any external drive over 250gb (I think) and is USB 3.0 will work. I currently use a 1tb 2.5" I bought for a PS3 that's in a small external caddy.
Comments in this video seem to suggest these drives above 1.5TB are soldered and don't have a SATA connector. Also appears to be thicker than a PS4 harddrive in the video.

I would have been all over this otherwise.

The internet is wonderful UNTIL folks pronounce incorrect info - if you want an uncrippled drive with a SATA interface then you need to buy the Seagate Expansion series - even they may soon turn to crippled drives with dedicated USB interfaces built onto the drive circuit board.

just ordered one for the kids xbox one.
thanks op have some heat
Ordered to store, collect tomorrow thanks.

This will be more than fine for the xbox one.
I picked one of these up in store about 10 months ago for £35 and was very pleased with it, now have 2!!

Thanks - so it could be used as a laptop drive then I assume.

Read all the above, most likely USB, not SATA and thicker than standard.

That's what I've done. Bargain at less than £40!

The really portable (so USB powered) 4TB drives are a novelty (less than a year old for consumer da Ves as far as I know). So they are devilishly expensive. Argos has a seagate one for 140£ and I believe wd passports go only up to 3TB.

Note that any drive saying desktop in its description will need external power supply and making it not portable in my eyes.

You might be able to buy an internal drive and stuck it in an enclosure, but I am not sure this would actually work for such massive drives...
I was hoping to pay for this item via cash. Does anyone know if i can just go up to customer services in my local store and ask them to order it in for me and then pay then and there?
got abit excited think i hit cold by accident... oopsey. sorry
Ordered one to use a backup for my personal stuff and the tons of videos...that'll free up the 3.0 usb Hitachi 1tb portable I'm using to backup the videos at the moment for the kids wii...
As ask earlier can it is compatible with ps4??
