Answer:
It is. I have it plugged into the USB2 port on my Mac Pro. One warning if you are on Mac. Do not use their bundled software called Dashboard 2. It messes up your boot and you have to reload the operating system to get rid of it.

Answer:
Your three-word question is by itself ambiguous. If your question is a reaction to the fact that the description of this device uses both words Desktop and External in its name - my understanding of this is that this is an external drive (enclosing the drive in a plastic and metal package) that relies on AC power (usin… see more Your three-word question is by itself ambiguous. If your question is a reaction to the fact that the description of this device uses both words Desktop and External in its name - my understanding of this is that this is an external drive (enclosing the drive in a plastic and metal package) that relies on AC power (using a AC->DC power supply) and thus is suitable for a desktop system. The drive within the enclosure can be removed and mounted as an internal drive in a desktop system - all fifteen of the drives I've opened have a ST4000DM000 drive inside. This drive includes a USB3.0-to-SATA3 adapter that is easily removable, exposing the SATA3 data and power interface. see less

Yes from a physical viewpoint, but there may be a problem with diminished cooling. When the unit is sitting in the normal vertical position, there are ventilation holes on the top and along the back side where the USB cable attaches.

When the unit is sitting in the normal vertical position, there are ventilation holes on the top and along the back side where the USB cable attaches. This creates an upward convective flow of cooling air. With the unit sitting on its big side, the flow of air would have to be horizontal thereby diminishing the convecting cooling effect. Because the unit has a fan, this may not be important. Consequently, I can't answer your question with 100% assurance that there won't be problems. see less
