That's the cheapest 1TB drive I could find. And yes, I know about the Y cable.

Short answer: Yes.

Pain is weakness, leaving the body.

But

Wii Fit U a day keeps you healthy and strong for days.

Or you can be like the MAB and wield dual 2TB AC powered HDD for that 4TB full on artillery assault into DIGITAL MADNESS ;)

The answer is a pretty solid "probably".

Dreaming, forever longing, that someday Nintendo would make a MOBA-type game.

Currently playing: League of Legends, Heroes of the Storm, Super Smash Bros. Kerfuffle (3DS), Mass Effect 3
Things I probably should be making progress on: Rune Factory 4, Mario Kart 8, Wind Waker HD, Gods Eater Burst

As long as it's compatible with USB 2.0 I believe it should work (and most 3.0 hard drives are backwards compatible).

It's a USB 3.0 external hard drive. USB 3.0 needs additional power to run on a USB 2.0 port. If it doesn't have an external power source as long as you have a Y cable plugged on the (2) USB 2.0 ports at the back of the Wii U then it will work. You really don't need the gigabit speed offered on USB 3.0 as the USB 2.0 ports on Wii U will limit it to 480 Mbps downlink/uplink speed.
