great price for external, or internal. one should be able to take it apart and use it as internal hdd, right?

I'd think the only downside would be that you would void the warranty.

Is there a ventilation fan inside the box of this model?

Beware... 1 yr warranty. (Last 1 yr-warranty drive I purchased died at 13 months.)
The 2 yr warranty version is only $10 more http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00829THQE

From the very first Amazon review on the product page:

COOLING: Heat is the enemy and can shorten the lifespan of drives. For a drive that seems intended to be always on, I would have expected cooling to be a significant design feature. The enclosure is passively cooled with holes in the bottom and back. However, this doesn't seem to be enough to enable real/effective convection cooling (using rising heat to pull cooler air across the radiator). The enclosure is thin plastic (metal would be been a better conductor of heat).
