Perfect for upgrading my Xbox One5 Posted by: from: Miami on So, as most people who own an Xbox One know that the 500GB memory on the system is a joke. If you own 8-10 games then you're already done because the 500GB is not really 500GB, more like 370GB. I ran out of space fast, and this was a perfect solution to increase my capacity. Plugged it in, the system recognised it and formatted it for the Xbox. It's silent, runs a little warm, but nothing to worry about. I have ALL my games saved to it, freeing up my internal memory. Key things to look for in an external hard drive for the Xbox One are 7200rpm and USB 3.0. This met both requirements. Then its simply a case of cost vs memory size. The 7200rpm helps select games load faster. Sometimes it can be by a gap of 20 seconds, sometimes a few seconds and times where there's no change at all, it just depends on the game. Sadly most external hard drives that Best Buy offers in store are limited to the slower 5400rpm and an external HDD that uses only a USB to power them. You'll mostly find that the 500GB - 2TB uses only USB (this Buffalo requires a dedicated outlet due to the size and speed of this model). If anything, just youtube the speed comparison videos of 5400rpm Vs 7200rpm for consoles (not PC). The 5400rpm is the same speed as the one internally so if you're happy with read/write times then you'll be able to get a cheaper, larger drive. I have no issues with this hard drive. I got it on sale for cheaper than advertised. I love it. And if need be, I can add another external in the future should the need arise.

Best external hard drive for Xbox One5 Posted by: from: on After performing a long agonizing search for a suitable external hard drive for my Xbox One I found this. The Buffalo has the largest cache at 1 Gb as verified thru tech support on Buffalo's website. It has a fast 7200 RPM for gaming which makes it ideal and was the easiest setup of any external drive I have ever had. I like it so much I purchased two more for my sons for their Xbox One.
