Can surveillance drive also work as external computer backup?

Amazon is advertising WD 2 TB WD AV-GP SATA III Intellipower 64 MB Cache hard drive (WD20EURX). Intended use is to back up files from satellite receiver. Wish to know if these surveillance drives can also be used in an enclosure as external back up drive for my desktop computer.
