Can you crack these open and use the drive as an internal?

Spetz 03-17-2013 08:32 AM

Sure.
I have previously bought 3Tb one and cracked it down - got USB 3.0 - SATA adapter like that one:

and 7200 rpm internal HDD (not sure if this one have 7200 one, but even 5900 as an huge storage is more then enough).

$153 at Newegg... http://slickdeals.net/f/5890670-Seagate-Backup-Plus-4TB-Black-Desktop-Hard-Drive-STCA4000100-152-99-FS

$160 isn't slick on these. Plus Costco has had them for $160 for a while now (and I'm pretty sure amazon has also).
