    Nice upgrade for my blu rays

    I picked one of these up to watch HDR blu rays on my TV, and then I realized my TV didn't do HDR, just 4k, and had to buy a new TV as well. The end result is spectacular. I've got a Day One special edition XB1, as well as another XB1 I purchased a year or so ago to get a larger drive for me, and passed my Day One edition to my son. So we've been using the XB1 since launch. We love it, and I've always preferred the XB live platform to the Playstation online system. We do Halo and Destiny. Once I had the right TV, it stopped nagging me about making sure I plugged it into a TV that supported its features. And I popped in the 4K HDR disc of "The Martian." And it blew me away. Incredible details, bright and dark is amazing, something the old Xbox One couldn't do. For the gaming side of things, it looks fine, about the same as I was used to on my previous one, but it's smaller, and quieter. Another bonus is the USB port isn't buried on the side, that's a pain to get at depending on how it's set in a cabinet or TV stand. The downside - no Kinect port, so you'd have to buy an adapter to use a Kinect with this. If you're fortunate enough to have purchased a Day One edition, they will let you go to an online page and enter the info to get the adapter for free, which I did. They warn of a long shipping time, and I had mine in about 3 business days, so it wasn't as bad as they said it would be. It worked fine, but it takes an external power brick and couple cables to get things hooked up. I like that the power supply is internal, so there's no external power brick. I have always hated that on the XBox units. Finally just a plug to the wall. The Xbox instantly recognizes the 4K TV and enables that resolution. I would've preferred a standard matte black body, but this was only available in the Battlefield edition with the olive colored body, and a white one. So I went with this. I got it on sale, so certainly can't complain about the price. And the game bundled with it is pretty impressive, even if it's not one that I've ever played before. I tried it out, and the graphics were pretty impressive. Gameplay was smooth and transferring the data from my old to the new was a bit of a slow process since you have to jump through hoops for every single game and app, you can't just do a global "copy all" but at least you can move it via a USB drive. All told, I'm very happy. I only have a handful of HDR discs so far, but the difference is amazing, and watching movies is a joy on here now, and playing games is just as addictive as it's always been...

    Great quality 4k bluray player for the $$$

    We all know what an Xbox one is, so the core list of features surrounding the Xbox one S Comes as no vast and large improvement over the other 2 Xbox ones I own. UNTIL you get to the fact that it plays 4k Blurays and supports HDR10 content on both bluray and gaming. I'll get to the 4k content in a minute, but first, id like to mention the few subtle ( and not so subtle) changes they've made that I like, and some that I dislike; Likes - smaller obviously - no bulky power brick that can't fit behind your entertainment center, or that becomes yet another item you have to hide in the tangle of wires - multiple usb inputs ( comes in handy when running external HDD and chargers or Kinect sensor) - the power button and eject buttons are just that.....BUTTONS! I had many issues with the original Xbox one's touch sensors failing - FANS......they operate a LOT quieter than the original - having the option to store the system vertically like the 360 back in the day. The included stand works well. Now for the dislikes - even though the Xbox one S DOES upconvert content to 4k resolution, it does NOT upconvert sources through the HDMI passthrough to 4k on the tv. It only up converts internal sources such as video games and Netflix/Hulu etc. I actually just went back to hooking my hd dvr directly to the tv as it looks better that way - probably the BIGGEST issue I have with the one S is the lack of DIRECT plug in for the Kinect sensor. Use of this device requires an additional $50 powered usb adapter. That being said, for a limited time Microsoft is giving these adapters away ( got mine for free) all that is required to register for it is the SN from your slim Xbox AND the SN from your Kinect sensor. The adapter works well, and while I don't use the Kinect for gaming or chat, I opted for the adapter anyways because I love the integrated voice control for my complete entertainment system. HDR gaming and bluray looks amazing on the slim, and if you're in the market for a 4k bluray player, the one S is worth the purchase almost for that alone! I got my battlefield one bundle for $249 and at that time there was no higher quality 4k bluray player on the market for less money. Overall it's a great buy to play 4k games and movies, as well as upconvert Netflix etc, but it's not a vast improvement over the original in all OTHER aspects, especially with release of the Xbox Scorpio project dated for holiday season in 2017 right around the corner.

    Good Gaming Platform - Do our homework

    Out of the box, the setup guide is somewhat misleading in that it shows to install the unit vertically. All of the data, including the warnings in the installation/operating documentations, indicate installing the unit in this manner is a no-no (fiction/fact - you decide, but there is a lot of reviews, ect stating not to install vertically). BL - I installed my unit horizontally with no issues. Xbox did a fantastic job with the newer units. The inputs are plenty, including a pass through HDMI 2a circuit, which can be used to connect you cable box, or another gaming console, ect. When you open the unit (BTW you will void warranty if you do this), you will find a much more robust design than the older units, including a great CPU fan - yes, they solved the heating problem of the older units. Set up was a breeze. It took me a bit to get used to the Xbox 1 interface layout (I have been playing mainly PS4 games prior to this unit coming out) Issues I have noted to date: 1. The Microsoft Bluray Software has some glitches and you may find yourself rebooting the system more often that you really want. 2. The "Guest" account for two player games is still not working, but like most Microsoft products there is a relative easy work around. 3. Sure wish they would have at least placed one of the USB ports in the front of the unit. 4. VUDU software does not support the 4K ultra on this platform yet (my understanding is VUDU and Xbox are working to resolve this as I type). I have not been successful in activating the 2 or more player mode in the 360 emulation software yet (see 2 above - I am sure there is a work around). Having said that, Thank you Xbox for making this platform backwards compatible, at least to the Xbox 360! Overall way-to-Go - huge improvement over past platforms and in my opinion, sinks the competition - Can not wait for the next gen platform!

    Good upgrade

    I mostly purchased this so I could move my original Xbox one into our room and have the uhd blu ray payer in the living room. The Xbox itself is pretty good but is a little loud when playing discs. That is not a problem for me since I always have the volume turned up. I was afraid the green was going to stand out too much but it actually blends in pretty well. It is much darker in person than on the box or ads. The uhd blu ray player is great and I really hope planet earth 2 comes out in uhd blu ray. The only problem with uhd blu rays is that most of the studios film in 21:9 aspect ratio versus 16:9 like all tv's come in now so you are left with black bars on the top and bottom. It is a bummer since you can never fully get a full hdr 4k picture. Hopefully more movies come out that are in 16:9 aspect ratio. HDR gaming is nice and is useful in really dark and really bright scenes. Gears of war 4 looks great and supposedly battlefield 1 will be getting an hdr upgrade. Gaming is not 4k but it looks good to me. Netflix and other 4k content looks great as well.

    I purchased this console for watching 4k movies and gaming in this exact order. I would have gave this review a lesser rating if I could. Keep in mind I purchased a new samsung UN65D9000 4k TV, Denon 11 channel Atmos ready, all new 4k HDMI cables, 7.1- atmos built in/sub woofer Klipsch RP speakers, and to include all new 4k movie purchases. Now when incorporating the X-box into this ecosystem is when all the trouble began. First off the X-Box will not play all 4k movies. It played all my collection accept for Lucy and Oblivion 4k. I contacted microsoft and they claimed ignorance, but yet on there forums people have been complaining about this same issue for months. Its currently a blame game between Microsoft and the Universal studios who make both these 4k movies. Also the X-box one S does not produce Atmos sound, which may not matter to you if you are not ready for this technology. The bottom line is that if you buy a console for its movies and gaming capabilities it should be able to do both. Long story short I have returned the console back to best buy and purchased an Oppo player. After hooking it up my new player guess what happened!? it played Lucy and Oblivion with no issues. Microsoft and Universal need to get there act together. Its 2017 and there is no excuse for selling a sub par console in this day and age. I highly recommend you stay away from this device until the issue with movie playback compatibility is fixed.

    Awesome special edition military green Xbox One S

    I have had my Xbox One S Battlefield One military green 1 Terabyte special edition for just a day and I love it so much more than my original Xbox One S Day One launch edition! It's faster with everything including downloading and installing games! It's super quiet and runs cool! It doesn't even have a separate power supply like it used to which I really like! The wireless controller also painted military green has a grippy backing on the controller that wasn't like that on my day one edition controller which I like a lot because it feels good in the hand! My only complaint is no way to do voice commands with Cortana out of the box since it doesn't include a wired headset to plug into the wireless controller or a wired mic built into the Xbox One itself! Since they removed the Kinect port and they don't include a Kinect USB adapter out of the box, but in Microsofts defense they are giving me a free adapter because I owned the original Xbox One. So at least they did do that or I wouldn't be happy to have to pay for a separate adapter for my Kinect!

    I am very pleased with this product and my two boys are ecstatic!! I have only one wish that I am sure a program upgrade could rectify with the entire system. I was disappointed that we are unable to use most of our 360 programs. We have a considerable investment and find that we can not retire the 360 console at this time. We had hoped that due to space requirements, the overall environmental impact could be lessened with this purchase. I would think that someone would come up with a way to make this an easier transition, by say use of the cloud to store them during the registration process (for all 360 games), then during the download process move the programs from one system to the next thus making it no longer necessary to have both. Those that would use this service would follow the current cloud interaction specifications along with the required yearly storage rate for the cloud. I am not aware if this is possible now, of course they could also be able to go from the Xbox one games to the 360 console. Giving the owners of these products at a considerable investment more consumer freedoms and choices. I believe this would be the next logical step for those in the gaming world. I give this idea to the public. Thank you for making my children so very happy!!!!

    We've had 360 since they came out but I wasn't willing to shell out $300+ just because a new Xbox One came out. I've reaserched the specs & read forums till no return & decided to wait for the Scorpio. Well, looks like it's not going to be THAT super & it's still a year away, so I got the "S". Spend extra $50 & get 1TB instead of basic 500GB. The HD graphics needs lots of space. Compared to prior version of "One" and even more so "360", the "S" version is really slim! The stand (cost $20 if not in a bundle) definitely keeps it running cooler so I highly recommend it. Yes, it doesn't support Kinect but we haven't even used it in the past 2 years playing mostly COD & Minecraft. I'm actually laughing trying to picture my HS football lineman attempting to do ANY activity that requires Kinect use. LOL. If you have small kids get them a Wii, get gaming PC for geeks, and Xbox One S for everyone else. Yes, I did research PS4 & honestly wasn't that impressed with tech specs but what REALLY made the difference is that Xbox Live has a LOT BETTER crowd in the lobby! Makes the same game More enjoyable! Oh, and pat yourself on the back for actually reading the reviews! That IS smart & everyone should make "informed decisions"!

    I a unique buyer, I am a gamer from childhood, and have owned the x-box orig., among other originals like the first nintendo and had an enormous console collection. This is a very pretty well made system that runs fast, but needs updates out of the box that do take some time even with the fastest internet! The remote is matching and clean. The console interface is somewhat lacking, I don't like it as much ast he PS4 interface, yes, I have one those too. I also disliked the fact that the app for blu rays and dvds is third party and it actually did not work running a blu ray and dvd rental I got. I actually bought this xbox as a blu ray player and occasional video game console. At this price point I think the x-box one s should have come with an additional remote control for better playback of blu rays/dvds. Otherwise, the controls are sound, the video game play is immersive, event hough I was inserting discs and the game console was making me download the game and wouldn't even access the disc that I bought ot play the game. All that said, graphics are good, seems to have glitches and quirks, otherwise, the console looks real nice and the controllers are just fine.

    Smaller Footprint and More Features

    the xbox one s (slim) is an improvement over the first generation xbox one console. not only does it have a smaller overall design, but it eliminates the need for the large external power supply in order to run the console. the downside is that there isn't a connection on the slim to plug in the kinect sensor but if you are like me that isn't an issue as i didn't use my kinect that often. the olive green finish on the battlefield edition looks great and isn't some sort of sticker or skin like the playstation special editions sometimes are; rather this slim has its case colored green. if you are debating on getting a slim over your original first gen xbox one to me i am glad i did. i don't have a 4k tv yet but the footprint and deal i received through best buy and microsoft made the upgrade to the slim a no brainer. let me also add that the kinect can still be used with the slim. you just need an adapter to plug the kinect into the slim which can be obtained for free through microsoft. just search the xbox website or google for the correct web page and simply request a free adapter.

    I got it the day it came out and I love it. No complaints with it. The green color looks really nice and I really prefer it over the white Xbox because I figure it could get dirty also it's a bit unique. It doesn't over heat like my Xbox 360. The size of it is really compact as and it only has 2 cables so if I need to move it or take it somewhere it's really easy and it's not heavy. And it's literally the console and 2 cables. No power brick or whatever you'd call it. like the one that came with the Xbox 360. The graphics look amazing. Definitely worth the upgrade from the Xbox 360. It does take a long time to download the game at first though but I guess cuz it's 44 GB. You can't play every Xbox 360 game on it tho. But more than half of the ones I have you can play, but I'm okay with it.

    New Special edition Xbox One S

    A very sharp looking update to the Xbox One product line. These new Xbox One S consoles are just a fantastic upgrade over the original big and bulky Xbox One's with not just a 40% reduction in size but its even more than that when you consider that the big bulky space eating power supply is now internal and not in the way any more. On top of all that they even improved the console's technical performance moving the GPU clock speed up from I believe 853 MHz to 911 MHz which in turn also gives a good boost to the 32 MB's of embedded SRAM on the GPU itself. This performance upgrade translates to having games that sometimes would dip in performance on the original Xbox One to now hitting their planned performance level more consistently with games like Tomb Raider now sticking to a firm 30 frames per second. Throw in the added 500 GB's of additional storage on the HDD, the included Battlefield 1 (a great game) and the updated controller and its just a superior product to the original Xbox One in every way.

    I decided to buy a xbox one s and while at the store I saw this bundle. It was a unique green color and I initially was worried that I would not like the color out of the box and on my entertainment center. But then a friend of mine bought it and I was able to see it in person. The green is a very dark all of his screen and once in the entertainment center almost appears black. It does not stick out like a sore thumb but on closer examination does give it a unique color and feel. The matching controller is also cool. The best advantage of the Xbox one s is the fact that the PowerBrick is now incorporated into the actual machine! No more huge power brick hanging out of the back of my entertainment center! I suppose I should make a comment also about battlefield one. It was a very good game and I do enjoy it's online multiplayer. It's a game I find enjoying most when I have other friends online playing it and we can form the squad. I am not really into sniping in the game very much favors those type of players.

    I bought the original Xbox One the week they came out, and it was working with no issue until about two months ago. So as far as that is concerned, it was time to upgrade. I saw that the New XBOX One S was going to be on sale for $249, with a free game and a FREE CONTROLLER!!! Who could pass that up. So I did something that I have not done in a long time, I went out to Black Friday on Thanksgiving Day...But honestly, it was probably the best Black Friday experience I have ever had. I stood in line waiting for the store to open for about 30 minutes. Once I got inside, went right over to the Video Games Section, picked up my Console, picked up the free controller, went right to checkout. I was in the store a total of ten minutes... As far as the console goes, it works great, it seems to be a bit more snappy than the previous edition, and the visuals are awesome. The only gripe that I have, and its very small, the controller buttons are loud. But thats it. Overall I am very pleased with this purchase.

    Sure sure, the Xbox One S isn't as powerful as the PS4 or the PS4 Pro, but it gives you an insane amount of value for under $300. It's even less if you decide to go for a boring white 500GB version. Here's what you get: You get a 4k Blu Ray Player built right into this thing, let's see your PS4 do that. You get the ability to share your digital purchases between 2 Xboxs. I have an old Xbox One and it's nice being able to buy one copy of a game and having my wife and I both play it at the same time together. With Live you get 4 games a month to play, one one console..unlike the 2 games with PS Plus. Now you don't get Horizon Zero Dawn or weird JRPGs, but seriously, you should already have a PS4 by now, right? This purchase is worth it for the 4k Blu Ray player alone if you already own a 4k set. Oh oh, it does HDR too, if you're lucky enough to have a set that supports HDR and gets bright enough with a wide enough color gamut to actually see a difference.

    Nobody wanted/expected/needed for Apple to remove the headphone jack, but they did it anyway. Not impressed with microsoft these days. Maybe I should have done some research, but I'm less than impressed that a disc must be downloaded onto the xbox to play. So in theory, there will be a limit of games I can play once I use up my 1TB. Should I spend another $100 on an external hard drive to store more content? The second is the kinect....was unaware that there was no port on the unit to plug my $100 accessory into. Again, I didn't research this but why the heck would I think that they wouldn't sell you something that you could plug in and play immediately. Oh, because they want that extra $40 for a GD adapter for a current console and a current accessory. All in the name of making the console a little smaller and getting rid of the power brick (at the end of the day, nobody cares if the brick is gone). I know this is old news to some, but just average work by Microsoft being done on this

    So, I've been a PlayStation guy since the original, and I've had every generation of PlayStation including the PS4. My lovely wife has enjoyed the Xbox for years and is a Halo girl, so for an early Christmas we got the house an Xbox One S. Let me get the fanboy out first. I do think the PS4 is better. Better controller (quality, features, and layout), better operating system, slightly better performance. But that doesn't take anything away from the Xbox One, which is a great system and I really recommend it. There's just a certain flavor to it, and the Xbox One S has the right level of performance and offering of games to make it worthwhile as the sole gaming system in a house. If your friends are on Xbox, or you like the Xbox game offerings, then the Xbox One S is awesome. Add in the great 4K blu ray support and you have a winner... I will say, unfortunately, the media player is a little buggy--but not enough to break it. Go ahead and pull the trigger, you'll love it.

    am so happy with this. I didn't get the Xbox One when it released last year because I wanted to wait for it to become more affordable and especially for the games on it to become more affordable. Boy, am I glad I waited! The new Xbox One S is smaller than the Xbox One and has some nice features. Besides that, I bought this baby as a great Cyber Monday bundle! Got the console, Battlefield, and a 3-month Xbox Live subscription for $212.50, making the console and Battlefield under $200. Connected this right to my Xbox Live account and got to work downloading all the games I bought for it on the Xbox Store. Took forever to update when I was first setting it up and games took a long time to download but it was worth it. The graphics are better than Xbox 360 which is, of course, great. What's also nice is if one person using the console has Xbox Live, everyone using the console has Xbox Live (while playing on that console). Some people are questioning if 500GB is enough.

    I have owned just about every game console since the atari 2600. I have the ps4 and a xbox one already and like them both. I bought a xbox one s because it supports 4k video play back and I just bought a 4k tv as well. Now I have a extra console for my wife to play ESO with me too. The xbox one S is a slick console. Smaller size, better buttons on the console itself, you can stand it on its side, you get 4k with HDR support for movies on blue ray and streaming. Playstation pro does not have blue ray support. I got the new Star Trek in 4k with the console and it looks fantastic. The xbox one S is much less money then the playstation pro. The spec upgrade on ps4 pro isn't a huge jump for the price you pay. Next holiday when the xbox scorpio comes out, it will offer a worth while power upgrade to justify spending more money. Right now you get so much more bang for your buck with the xbox one s its a no brainer. You can barely get a 4k blue ray player for this price

    I bought the Xbox One S primarily for its ability to play 4K Blu-ray movies as the PS4 Pro cannot play 4K Blu-ray movies. 4K streaming and upscaling of all content, apps, videos, games and more is fantastic! Having 1 Terabyte of storage is a must as well as 500GB of the lesser Xboxes fills up quickly with games taking up nearly 60-70GB each at times. The Xbox One S is powerful, sleek, quiet and packed with cutting edge features, abilities and the latest and greatest Windows 10 software such as Cortana and Microsoft Account integration. The games are great and if you don't play games, just having the best 4K Blu-ray player with a large hard drive is worth the price. The Xbox One S is cheaper and factually more advanced than standalone 4K Blu-ray players that don't give you a gaming or app library backed by Windows 10. I highly recommend the Xbox One S to anyone looking for a 4K capable device.
