Mind you, that's provided it is the same model that we get.

Can this be cannibalised and used as in internal SATA drive? I know a lot of these externals have a custom PCB with non-SATA connectors.

It probably goes without saying that cannibalising this HDD will of course mean that you void your warranty.
