Yes, you are correct, this is external drive and you can connect it by included USB cable (there are 2 versions in the box- the newest and fastest USB-C, and older type USB-A).
You have not mentioned what kind of operating system you use (Windows, Linux, MacOS), but on all these systems the drive should be easily recognised after plugging in.
For Windows there is a bit of software on the disk, so you can optionally encrypt the drive and storing data should be more safe (I haven’t tested that though).
There is also encryption software for MacOS but I have found out that it doesn’t work and causes more problems than it’s worth (you can read on the internet that it works only on older Macs).
Apart all that the drive is fantastic. Very fast, quiet and shock resistant.
Hope that helps ;-)

Yes, you may need to reformat the drive (The TV supports the FAT, exFAT, and NTFS file systems.) , please see the e-manual for your TV for further information
Samsung advise when connecting an external hard drive, to use the USB (HDD) port. You may need to ensure suitable power is applied to the drive.
