Saw this recently from other retailer for $99 and wasn't the lowest price at the time

Note that it uses this old style USB3 (*not* USB C)... these are terrible connectors. The usb contacts become misaligned quickly and there's not much you can do with it when that happens - they were just a terrible design!

I'm not sure whether OP's drive uses the same connector... I think it might also.

Then you throw enclosure in the garbage, that's what you do...

Thinking of buying this to remove from the case and put the HDD in my desktop for file storage. Is this thicker than your typical 2.5 hard drive?

Typical 2.5" HDD (and PS4 HDD) is 9.5mm, this is 15mm thick.

Can probably fit in desktops if the cage / adapter has extra vertical space, but not laptops / PS4.
