Is there anything that actually makes this special/better for consoles? I thought you could use pretty much any external hard drive and it looks like this is just that with console names in the title...

they are preformatted to be used in ps4 and xbox one already so it just saves time so you do not need to connect it to a pc first then format it to be use din either console. It is just a convenience thing.

Is this good for desktop backup? I just need something cheap, don't need anything larger than 1 TB.

External harddrives are just laptop hdd's attached to a usb brick to be ran at usb power. This is not as strong as a desktop hdd, but if you just using it for backups, it is still a good drive as it should have the same read and write speeds as a normal laptop hdd.

Uusually external harddrives only run at 5400 rpm, but gaming drives like wd blue or the wd black ones run at 7200 rpm.

Should be, if you wanted the best load times, I recommend the Portable WD Black. https://www.amazon.com/Western-Di...r=8-1&th=1
