    Would it be worth removing the hdd from a 2tb sky box to use in my PC?

    They use 5400rpm drives in most cases, So only really useful as a pure data drive, Photos videos ect.

    Cheers! :)

    You should be able to use the HDD in your computer since it's a standard SATA HDD.

    However, keep in mind that you will have to reformat it in Disk Management in order to use it which will erase all the currently existing data on it.
