    Pricey but worth it.

    Still having an older model of the Xbox 360, and only an original 20GB hard drive, I thought it best to upgrade before this 250 GB model hard drive was fazed out in favor of the new design. I’m happy to say the data transfer from my old storage to the new went exceedingly well. The manual warns that some data may not transfer, and since the transfer process is a one time only operation, I was a little nervous. It turns out a few files weren’t copied, but they turned out be largely meaningless, and everything else I needed I got from system updates on Xbox Live. The transfer was also quite speedy, in my opinion. My main complaint about the hardware is that $130 dollars for 250 GB of space is ridiculous. By checking ads, you can find a 1 or 1.5 TB pc hard drive for under $100. I suppose the price point comes with Microsoft’s proprietary design. Still, now I have room for tons of games and add on content and I’m looking forward to filling the new hard drive full of anything everything I can afford to download. On a side not, I find, and have found in the past, that Best Buy’s order online and pick-it-up in store process to be very smooth and efficient. I will continue to use this option in the future whenever appropriate.

    More space is always needed

    The negative part. This is an overpriced hard drive for the Xbox 360. It is what it says. You get 250gb hard drive for an outrageous $129.99 + tax. I would have never bought this for this price if it was not for gift cards and Best Buy rewards certificates. You can get a 2tb HDD for $119.99. that is 2000gb for those that don't know the conversion. That is almost 10x's more storage space and at a cheaper price. The positive part. It is very easy to use and so far has worked fine. It transferred my data from my 20gb HDD to the 250gb HDD without any lose of data or issues. It was really painless and I have really enjoyed the extra space now that I dont have to delete things just to install a demo. This is something you cant blame Best Buy for, as it is Microsoft that sets the price and forces you to use this overpriced drive on their faulty RROD Xbox 360 system. The Playstation 3 will at least allow you to go buy the cheaper HDD at a larger space and will allow you to use it on their system. I am actually a fan of both systems and enjoy them both. I just hate how they price gouge the customer on these items and they should really try and make things like this HDD more affordable. Both Microsoft and Sony is guilty of gouging on the extras for their systems in one way or another. This is just a review for the Xbox HDD.

    The hard drive is nice, it has tons of space and was very easy to transfer the files. The only drawback for me was the relicensing issue. When you transfer the files, if any of them are downloaded, the licenses don't transfer. In order to use any downloaded file, you are required to go back to your download history and download any file you are going to use AGAIN (this is how it relicenses to your hard drive). This may not be a big issue to most people, but I had over 90 files to redownload (mostly Guitar Hero songs). Transfer and relicensing took about 2 hours total, not bad, but it was only 11gb of files. Overall, it's 5 stars. 2 hours is a very small percentage of my life :)

    Easy Upgrade

    I purchased this drive because I was quickly running out of space on the original XBOX HDD due to hundreds of downloaded Rock Band files. Using the included special cable I was able to move all the DLC from the old HDD to the new HDD while preserving the licenses. The instructions were clear and easy to follow. The copy operation was very quick as well. I can't really comment on the product durability since its only been in use for a few months, however there have no problems so far.

    This product is what xbox gamers have been waiting for the past 5 years. It has all the space you could ask for and comes pre-loaded with some xbox arcade games. Setup is easy and transfer of data takes no more than 8 minutes with a full 20 gb hard drive. Definately a great hard drive for the hardcore gamer.

    Finally, got my Xbox 360 250gb hard drive. After calling for sevral weeks prior. This is a good item to get if you are truly an xbox 360 die hard. There's lots of memory space to handle all types of xbox 360 live content. I'm really glad I got this item. I came close in using all my 120gb memory up. I feel relieved now not so stressed or worried

    My last hard drive crapped out and this hard drive was the only option. At $129.99 I was a little apprehensive. I checked out and realized that it was on sale for $109.99. I think that around $100 is a fair price but it's a good drive and hopefully it doesn't screw up like my last one did.

    I had to put the new downloads on my xbox, then went to set up Netflix and it also required an upgrade. BUT, I didnt have any memory left on my xbox, even after deleting everything! Bought this memory, simple to install, set up in minutes and havent had a problem since! It is expensive, but I had to have it to be able to keep moving forward!

    Not really much to say. Works great, easy to transfer files, and you pretty much have to have a large drive nowadays. No issues. Includes all required cabling.
