    Good Deal

    Posted
    Violated

    I bought the 4gb Xbox with the Kinect. I very quickly discovered that I needed more hard drive space. I looked at the 250gb but decided to go ahead with the 320gb. If you don't mind the already over priced storage space, go ahead and throw another $30 in and get 70 more gb. Plus it came with a free downloadable Lego game. Like the other person that reviewed this, I also don't really care about the Lego games but thought it would be nice for the younger kids. It is pricey, but you have to have more than 4gb on an xbox. The install was extremely easy. It literally took longer to get it out of the box than it did to put it in the system.

    You pay for Original equipment

    There are plenty of 3rd party options out there for getting your hands on a 360 hard drive. However, Convenience (and the free games - yes games, but more on that in a minute) have their own value. It took more time to get the drive out of the packaging than it did to have it installed and operational. Just pop the cover off the side of the console and pop the drive in. That's it. This HDD came pre loaded with the full version of LEGO Star Wars III and Hexic, and a few additional demos. Also, with the current price increase of standard hard drives, this one actually becomes fairly competitive in price.

    Must-Have for 4GB Xbox Users

    I've been using a 4GB Slim Xbox daily for about 3 years now. Although I used a 32GB flash-drive, it just wasn't enough for a daily gamer who download countless DLC. I don't know how I could handle it. This was my saving grace. Before my purchase, deleting things for space was just a nightmare. Now, I have an immense amount of space to install all my games to this hard drive and DLC. Installing games on this hard drive is by far the best potential feature because it makes the gaming experience that much more enjoyable and less tedious. Sure it is a bit pricey but the reward is just too great. Do yourself a favor and buy it!

    I bought this in March of 2013 because I couldn't download or even play on the 4g xbox 360 kinect it kept on saying I didn't have enough space. This hard drive costs 129.00 plus TAX and it didn't even last a year!!! I have 5 games bought and saved on this hard drive and sometimes it freezes right at start up and other times one hour into the game. Did troubleshooting, chatted with a microsoft technician and they say its a "corrupt" hard drive and I just need a new one!!! So now I'm right back where I started and cannot play any games! This hard drive, costing over 100 should definitely have ATLEAST one year warranty!

    Needed storage

    I read different reviews about getting the 250GB over the 4GB because you would need the storage but really wanted the Kinect for the kids to play. I bought the 4GB Xbox with the Kinect for Christmas. Within days of getting Xbox the 4 GB was almost full and knew I was need more storage. Ordered the 320 GB for pickup at local store. Went home and had the hard drive installed in minutes. Now I can install games onto the bigger hard drive so that they load faster. Have plenty of room now for my games and the kids games also.

    320GB memory for your 360 slim? Nuff said. Way more than enough for your average and most hardcore gamers. Price is not bad AT ALL. There are those out there that will complain about the benjamins. Look at a playstation vita 32GB memory card, 100$. Now that's ridiculous...anyways, a lot of memory for a good price. Plus star wars download for free. Nice. Quick 45 second instal and your back to gaming. Highly recommend!

    this is a good value over the 250 gig drives for the same price. plus it comes with a code to download a full starwars lego game. the game itself was horrible (but i hate the lego games) the drive has lots of space and is good for people like me who got the 4 gig console and now find that i need an actual hard drive to use the HD textures on games like battlefield 3.

    I bought an xbox 360 kinect bundle; however, the xbox only had 4gigs which I found to be ridiculously small because of all the updates you have to do. My fiance recommended I get this hard drive but I was dubious and the price was slightly high.. I tried something different and regretted that choice immediately.. went back to B.B. return the other hard drive and bought this one..!! It's so easy to install.. you just open the compartment where it goes and push it in until you hear a click and DONE..!!

    over all I'm happy with the product, great way to store games downloaded to the Xbox and off your everyday hard drive to keep that freed up for other continent. lengthy transfer time from the old hard drive to the new depending on how much data. i selected to just send over certain things and could only select one at a time wait and repeat. was hoping i could just hook it up to my Xbox and leave it as additional storage device but was unable too. also needs a transfer cable that's sold separate.

    you are better off buying this OEM product rather than going cheap and getting a standard hard drive and formating it to FAT32. The reason for this is because you will have the hidden files req to play older xbox games. Formating any drive to FAT32 will work but you will not have the backwards compatible files that you need to play older stuff.

    I purchased a new game for my son's x-box, not realizing it needed the media hard drive. I talked to the salesman about the installation. I wasn't so sure I could install it correctly, but he explained it thoroughly and had a lot of confidence I could install it. It was really easy! He did offer for me to bring the xbox console in to the store for him to install it if I had any problems, which was great customer service. Luckily it was easy!

    It works great, I'm just mad that they discontinued the 250 gb hd right after titanfall came out, causing me to pay an extra 30 dollars for the larger one with more space, that I don't need. Other than that I am very happy with how it works. I initially tried a generic 20gb hard drive for much cheaper, but that ended up slowing down my 360 and eventually deleted everything I had saved on it... So beware of those.

    I purchased this hard drive so that my son could play Need For Speed Rivals on our 4GB XBOX. I considered a couple of off-brand alternatives before deciding to go with this one. It was extremely easy to install, and there were no cumbersome or confusing steps to take. Open the trap on the side (had no idea that was there), install, close the trap, turn on and play. Ours came with a couple of download codes for games as well.

    This is a fantastic buy for those looking to expand their Xbox 360 Slim and "e" systems. It is a little expensive, but definitely worth it. Most games work better by installing them to the drive (which decreases the loading times). The 320GB model is perfect for installing my downloadable games and DLC. Since having an Xbox Live Gold membership now gives away free games to download and keep, I am really enjoying having a very large hard drive!

    I bought my son the XBOX 360 with the smallest amount of GB (I think 3 GB) certain games he wanted to download with Microsoft points wouldn't allow him to play because he didn't have enough memory space. He saved his money and bought himself the hard drive and I haven't heard him complain since.

    Product is fine and does provide extra storage but so does a flash drive that is much cheaper. Frustrated with Microsoft that made this game (Battlefield 4) require the hard drive. You already spend enough on the Xbox system and all the games and now to have spend this much to play additional games. Just a money making sceem for Microsoft.

    I bought this to install in an XBOX 360 4GB Kinect system, which didn't originally come with a hard drive. The install was very easy, the drive was immediately recognized by the system, and the needed initialization software was automatically downloaded and installed on the hard drive. My son is using it to play Destiny, and it is working perfectly.

    All the space you need

    This is the easiest hardware install I've ever done. All you have to do is drop it into the empty Xbox hard drive slot and it's ready to go. The price is a little high when compared to off-brand prices. However, it is worth the extra cash to not have to format it or deal with install or warranty issues.

    Not compatable with Xbox 360 or Xbox 360 Elite

    Very disappointed. I waited 4 weeks for this (for Christmas), only to find out that it won't work with a normal Xbox 360. If the article had bothered to mention that it was only for the 'S' version, I could have spent that time finding the proper drive. Now I have to return this one and try to find the right one. #Thanks Best Buy!#
