    For multi-xbox360 users

    In my household we have 2 xbox360s: One in the living room, and one in my room. It was a hassle having to choose which xbox to use based on which system I started playing a particular game on (otherwise I'd have to start a new save file/game for each system). The file transferring of game save files was simple and easy - just like with a memory card for a camera: Copy from xbox360 #1 to Memory Card, plug Memory Card into xbox360 #2, move files from Memory Card onto xbox360 #2. The only thing I'd change about how that worked is I wish there was an option to "Copy/Move all files", instead of having to manually go through and move file by file one at a time. Other than that the file transfer was great. I did experience a bit of a problem with the transfer of my Player Profile. I moved it from 360 #1 to Card, then transferred it from Card to 360 #2. I went to start a new game I had just bought and it said my profile wasn't registering to save data under. After 10 minutes of trying to play with it I decided to just Recover my profile via xboxLive. That way took a lot longer than what it would have with the memory card, but it wasn't all that big of a deal - just an annoyance. But I may be biased because Recovering via xboxLive is what I've been doing anyway. :) Overall, I bought it to transfer game save files and that's exactly what it does (oh, and it transfers downloaded content just fine too!). Overall happy with the product, not so happy with the price. I recommend it for anyone that regularly uses more than one xbox360.

    It is easy to use, I got this when it first came out to replace the smaller more useless one. It is much easier and quicker to turn off the XBOX 360, pull it out, run over to a friends house to kill time and plug it in to there XBOX. Plus only once have I been to a friends house and both memory stick slots were full. This is very convenient because I know it sounds ridiculous but we have 4 XBOX 360's at our house and it is so easy to hotswap them the XBOXs and since they are all networked I get xbox live anywhere. I have also copied the Halo Heroic maps onto it and copied to the other 360's because although small, it was just big enough. I would recommend this to anyone that travels between XBOX's at your house or a networked friends house. Much easier than recovering to another XBOX

    Useful and easy

    Allows me to take my profile with me so I don't miss out on the gamer points. Saves a little room on the hard drive but obviously not much. It comes with a free game on it that's simple but fun called "Worms". It reminds me of an old Atari game but it's humorous and surprisingly entertaining. Given the low cost of memory, a larger drive would have been nice but everything was as described. It has plenty of room left for quite a few mp3's if you want to bring your music with you. Very durable and well constructed, high quality and simple to use. Directions were easy and it reads/writes fast, it's seamless to use and you can't tell any difference from using your profile on the hard drive. I'm very pleased with it and recommend it if you game away from home.

    Only good for one thing...

    For those of you who don't really game anywhere but on your own Xbox 360, you will have no real need for this. But for those of you who do, I would suggest getting one just because it saves the hassle of recovering your gamertag on Xbox LIVE. 512 MB is a lot more than it seems and i don't even have mine filled up. I like it, but when I'm not going to game with friends, it sits on my desk collecting dust.

    Great addition

    I have two consoles so this is a huge time saver. Before I had this I had to redownload my xbox live profile when I went to a different machine. Now i just need this memory stick. I save all my game saves to this and still have just under half capacity. I only use the console hard drive for videos music and downloads. Bigger would be nice but it's big enough for game saves and maybe a arcade game or two.

    Not necessary

    This is a nice little flash drive for hauling your games around I suppose but it is not necessary to play, save or even transfer your games. There is an attachment for 40$ that you can buy to transfer all the information on your Xbox hard drive to your computer. I would suggest that instead. The only reason I gave it 3 stars is because it is not really needed for much at all.

    Good for a backup

    This is good for keeping a backup of the games you like the most. I recently received a red ring of death on my xbox but i noticed it slowing down prior and backed up all of my games the other good use i could see it taking the card into best buy to download the demos off of their xbox display every month or so

    This holds game saved data and gamertags, nothing else! thats a huge waste mainly because you can just recover your gamertag if your on a different machine. OORRRRR you can just take your HDD(Hard Drive Device) out and put it in another device! Hence why its an External Hard Drive

    No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Very easy to handle and for a great price! I take it everywhere with me, especially when traveling from school to home and back. It is great to have if you want to play video games, but are at a friend's house in a different state.

    Works as planned

    I would only recommend this if you have multiple 360s in the house. It's very easy to swap game saves between them. If you only have 1 console then you should buy a hard drive.

    Great way to transport saved games and profiles

    I picked this up so as to be able to transport saved games and XBox Live profiles to other friends systems. It's been great to have the ability to take my profile anywhere.

    This is a typical memory card for a gaming system.
