Yes any 2.5 hdd will do the job. Just replace the 120gb with the new one and put it on your 360 and format it.

Your 360 will take care of the partitions too.
As far as the disadvantages,....the only thing I can think of is you can only use this drive in jtaged consoles, as it won't work in stock or flashed consoles, .......but the standard hdd will work in all consoles.
