Great for Computers
This is a really solid external drive, I returned it because my Smart TV doesn't read External drives over 2TB and was able to exchange it without any issues for a a different drive. Really nice fast friendly service and no hassle return and exchange service. Will shop again!
Yes, as long as you have the latest firmware, the Xbox One can use any USB Hard drive over 256 GB, please be aware that it will be formatted for exclusive use with the Xbox (not readable by other devices)

This a typo the speed of the spinning platter HDD will be 5400rpm.
The transfer speed will depend on other factors including the version of USB your PC or device has.
USB3 has transfers speeds of 'up to' 5gbps (gigabits per second)
USB2 has speeds of 'up to' 480mbps (megabits per second)
The real performance will depend on the system you connect it to and the hardware it uses to control the USB subsystem.
For this reason I am unable to give a definitive answer for transfer speed beyond the above details.

Yes, This drive meets the criteria for use with a PS4
The PlayStation is compatible with external USB 3 Drives over 250GB (Up to 8TB) however there are caveats to using an external drive with the PlayStation they are:
The PS4 system needs to run system software 4.50 or newer.
The external storage device needs to be USB 3.0 or later with a minimum capacity of 250 GB and a maximum of 8 TB capacity.
Only one external device can be used at a time. You will get an error message, if the same application is installed on the system storage and the external storage device.
The external storage device must be connected directly into the PS4 (not a hub).
Additionally the Drive will be formatted for exclusive use with PlayStation (not read/writable by PC's)
