    Well, it's a hard drive

    If possible, try to buy the bundled console with the hard drive included. I only got the 4gb slim version because I got a $50 rebate. So, I needed this to play Halo Reach. Apparently you can't play a couple of the game modes (co-op firefight, co-op campaign online) without a large Hard drive. The 4GB internal on the Xbox Slim is not enough apparently. It's allocated 1.8GB for system updated out of the box so...yea. You end up with actually 2.2gb or so. Anyways, it is very small and light, almost too light. It installed very easily...almost too easy. I didn't feel the need to purchase the transfer kit. You can just use a formated thumb drive to transfer profiles and what ever you want to keep to the new console. I only gave it an average rating for durability because I have only had it for about an hour now...If it fails i will re-review this item. I think it was a bit pricey considering you can buy a 1TB for the same price these days. For gaming and Xbox live(even for a heavy user) 250GB is double what anyone should need. I had the 120gb on my old Xbox 360 and had nearly 70 Gb left after 2-3 years. Might be useful if you plan on loading your entire music library onto your xbox, but why do that when you can just plug and play most MP3 devices anyways.

    So I bought the Xbox 360 4GB SKU and wasn't really in need of a big hard drive at the moment. But then I started downloading alot of Arcade games and going through the trouble of deleting old Arcade games and redownloading them. I held out for awhile because Xbox 360 accessories are quite pricey but then good ol' Best Buy had a sale on Xbox 360 250 GB hard drives. It was on sale for $99.99 as apposed to to the regular $129.99. Not a huge sale but these things hardly EVER go on sale. I jumped on it and bought one. Man, I'm lovin it. Sure it ain't no TB hard drive but for downloading games and such, it's perfect.

    Pros -Easy to install -Large size -Lightweight -Warranty(Microsoft / Best Buy) Cons -$ -250gb is almost TOO MUCH room(possible?) -Just storage costs more then half the system itself Don't buy the online modded versions from China, only buy Microsoft. Paying the extra few bucks to get an authentic version gives Microsoft additional funding to continue to provide excellent products.. If you like xbox 360, then I highly recommend buying this to support them. The console is amazing!!

    Got Storage

    After buying the kids xbox, I decided to add one in my AV setup. I wanted one with storage, but I was unable to locate one. I read on the internet it was easy to install a drive in the xbox. The install was so simple, quick and painless. Remove a door panel, side in the drive and replace the panel. You are done. Product is a bit pricey for the size of the hard drive.

    Must have if you have a 4gb flash memory Xbox

    If you own any EA sports games you need a hard drive to review your highlights and get the most out of those games. Purchase it at you local best buy store to avoid any hassle and if you have an extra $30 jump to the 320gb but the 250gb is still more than enough. Also install your games to your hard drive for better performance it will benefit your system in the long run.

    SOOOOO easy to install

    This was so easy to install. The capacity seems to be sufficient, but only time will tell, depending on how quickly it fills up. As far as durability, it is as durable as the game system itself, as it is installed internally. Great price! We got it for $20 off when it went on sale after the holidays and used $85 in gift cards, so I would say for paying only $35 out of pocket, IT IS GREAT!

    Great Drive

    Well, it's a hard drive...can't really comment too much on this. The drive works well on the 360. It was easy to install and it immediately recognized it. The price is a bit steep for a 250 GB drive and it also kind of stinks you can't just use any 2.5" hard drive in the 360.

    -despite the enormous memory cache, all the extra data and load does not slow the overall performance of the 360 -also, the data transfer process was very simple

    It just works

    Of course you pay a bit more because of Microsoft's proprietary monopoly on their own equipment, but the unit is a snap to install and it works right out of the box so it's worth it. Had device a month and no technical issues yet.

    Easy to use, but shouldn't be needed

    The install was very easy however i dont believe this product should even exist. This hard drive should have come with the X-Box. If you haven't bought a PlayStation 3 yet, buy that over the x-box. the value is a lot better.

    Price is kind of high for what you are getting but you got to do what you got to do.
