    Bought 2 and both not working

    With my experience with Microsoft all my life (39) and the amount of hours/days on the phone with tech support, I was reluctant to buy an Xbox made by Microsoft. Finally I broke down and bought a Xbox one S to play 4K movies on my 4K Samsung TV. The box said it plays 4K movies so I bought it and after installing, logging in to my Outlook account and downloading the updates, I was finally ready to watch my 4K movie. I was wrong. As soon as I inserted the 4K movie I got an error. So I put in the Blu-ray and got the same error. So it wants me to go to a website to trouble shot and do a lot of things that I didn't want to waste my time doing. So I uninstalled it from my living room and returned it to Best Buy and bought another. Same problem again. Again. Twice now. I told my buddy I should have expect this Microsoft product not to work out of the box, because if it did (I was about to say "I would have been surprised"), when my buddy interrupted me when I said "because if it did" he said "It would be called Apple." Haha. I have a Nintendo Wii-U, two PS3's and a PS4. ALL worked out of the box. Just not the Microsoft product. Now I have to trouble shot this one for free and waste my time or take it back. Microsoft should drive to my house and fix it or log into to my Xbox and fix it. It's brand new and under warranty and I have to fix it? Come on.

    Good Buy but Items for thought before going ALL in

    Decided on going with this because I wanted to try something different. Items I found out about after getting device 1. When you buy a bundle set, plan for at 2 to 3 hours of downloading that game. (40+ gb) I thought I was going to get a disc, nope 2. Because you're not getting a disc, don't plan on going to some other house to play the game there. Won't happen! 3. Even if you have a 4k TV make sure all components are compatible. Because I use an AV Reciever as the Video hub that the Xbox isn't able to produce its highest resolution possible to the tv Max out at 1080p because of the AV receiver. 4. If you're a simple person I have to agree with other reviewers that the Xbox interface is a big cluster of stuff that can be overwhelming. Unlike PS4 interface it will take some time to figure out what is what. (TOO much going on) That is the one thing I do miss from Playstation. They had a very simple but yet usable interface. 5. Be prepared, because of it being Microsoft they allow you to use the Windows 8/10 sign to give you that continuity across multiple devices. Don't know how to feel about this yet. 6. Like the Feature of being able to plug a headset into the controller for night time playing!!! Overall the system is great. Kids love it.

    Smaller and sleeker but Kinect isnt integrated

    I bought the Xbox One S because my old Xbox One failed and the new one isn't out yet. It was $349 for the 1TB with Forza included. Overall the additional storage space onboard is nice though I have an external hard drive. Also the fact that you don't need the Kinect to control peripherals like the TV is an improvement. It would be better if my Kinect was able to plug in directly but apparently you need an adapter. So for now none of my Kinect games are usable. It is smaller and sleeker but it's difficult to notice whether or not graphics are better or the games faster. I do wish it had more USB ports for charging controllers while also using hard drive and game bases such as Lego dimensions. Overall I am happy to have a working XBOX but wish mine had died closer to when the new Xbox X was coming out.

    Surprisingly Impressive for long time PS4 user

    I have been a long time Playstation user since I starting gaming as a teenager. I recently purchased this Xbox One S due to having multiple friends on the Xbox platform and wanting to game online with some of them. Overall, I am impressed with the system. I thought I was only going to use it when gaming with my friends, but it is now my main method of watching Netflix and Hulu. I like that Xbox has more apps than PS and also has EA Access which allows me to download and play select EA and EA Sports games for a reasonable annual subscription cost. Overall, I will always be partial to Playstation, but I can definitely see why Xbox has a following. The game included in the bundle Forza Horizon 3 is a fun arcade style racing game. It follows a sandbox-style format with different missions and races to win to unlock further missions. The controls took some time to adjust to, but overall it is a great game with great graphics.

    Xbox one S is Amazing

    Compare to the original xbox one the xbox one s is just much more appealing looking the console is smaller and the white color adds a nice look to it and the controller. The system i got was a 1 tb storage unit and so you know the operating system and stuff xbox adds your 1 terabyte turns to 720 gigabytes but still plenty of storage. My version came with forza horizon 3 and the game is amazing looks and feels amazing, xbox one s also adds the HDR which is high dynamic range gaming kinda changes the colors around for a more lifelike feel and is worth the extra 50 dollars. If you got a 4k tv spend the extra 50 to make sure you play in all the xbox glory and as of right now not every game is able to use HDR, look up online the compatible titles.

    The os was designed to be used with the kinect and is a mess. It's easy to figure out where things are. Once you take a few minutes to mess around with it, its not bad, but it shouldn't take a few minutes. Forza Horzion 3 comes in the form of a download cod, which has a positive and some negative sides. The positive: You can also download a copy for your PC and the save is in the cloud, so you can play anywhere. You need a pretty powerful PC to play FH3, which is odd because the xbox one isn't that powerful. The game is 49.5 gigs. Even if you have an average speed internet connection. it's gonna take a long time to download. 3 Xbox live went down one day i wanted to play FH3, and i couldn't play it because either the game has to be connected online, or because I downloaded it, I'm not sure. still, that's not good, as Xbox live seems to go down a lot more than in the 360 days.

    Great 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray Player

    Went to my local Best Buy to purchase a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray Player, but realized that this Xbox One S was the better value because I got 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray Player and a great gaming system for free. Previously owned a PS3 for the same reason many years ago, and was shocked that the PS4 didn't have a 4K Blu-Ray Player. When compared to other 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray Players, this was definitely the better deal. Also plays 3D which is a plus for me since I have the LG 3D OLED. Not sure why 3D didn't catch on...I Love it! Also, I'm not a gamer but the included Forza Horizon is a pretty cool driving/racing game. Look forward to playing other games too. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a 4K Ultra-HD Blu-Ray Player or a great gaming system.

    NOT into games…but this is great to have

    I would like to start out that I am not a gamer, and not really into games. I’m 45, professional. I installed a projector, and was looking to ad video signal to the device. I wanted to add the basic, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, and to play blu ray disks. Cost wise the xbox was cheaper than going with a traditional 4k blu ray player and added much more function. My daughter was visiting so I purchased a few games. While I am not a gamer, I do find my self playing a bit here and there… especially the interactive movie games. The interface is great, and I like all the functions. It’s my hub to music, video, and much more for the projector. Graphics/speed are impressive. Very much worth the money. If your looking to add a 4k blu ray.. entertain getting the xbox.

    I've been playing on a refurbished xbox one, and only after a day I could tell the difference between this console and that one. While I honestly don't see much of a difference in picture quality, the physical console is a lot nicer. It's about 3/4ths the size so it takes up less room, and I was able to purchase a vertical fan stand/controller charger that I really like. This xbox doesn't randomly crash as much as the other one and download speeds are much faster. It also doesn't seem to overheat as much either (I think my stand might be helping with this, but I couldn't even find a fan stand to purchase for the xbox one so this is already a pro in my mind). Overall, I'd buy this console again. Forza is also pretty cool.

    System itself is great. My bundle came with Rocket League, an additional controller, and a few other bonuses. I was pretty happy with the overall value when all was said and done. If you use the Xbox One for watching TV at all, I'd recommend getting the Xbox remote control. It's a good value and is much more intuitive to use than a game controller for navigating TV related functions like volume, etc. Research the games available on the platform that you choose though. After purchasing, I have looked regularly for interesting games and it seems that so many contain violent content (war/battle scenarios). Not really my thing.

    I am a xbox one day one edition owner I have been through the ups and downs of the software and drops in fps. When microsoft announced the xbox one s I was happy to see the smaller size and 4k support. I have been using the xbox one s for the 3 months, The 4K looks amazing on netflix and HDR for triple A games are really good. If you are a OG xbox one user and has a 4K HDR tv that wants to use the 4K and HDR features then go for it. For the owners of the 1080p tv you should not upgrade until Microsoft announces there new console for 2017, unless you have the money and you just want it.

    Xbox One S 1TB Forza Horizon 3 Console

    Xbox still rules for gaming! Even though I'm an  fan, this is the only Microsoft related device I own. The console is constructed well and doesn't run very hot. It's design allows you to place it practically anywhere and yet looks elegant enough to display. Even better is the cordless controllers, they have a great range and you have the ability to purchase rechargeable battery packs. Oh and of course, no cords to trip over! You can also watch DVD movies on this console. There is a port in order to add an external hard drive if you want more downloading space if you find yourself eating away at the 1TB of space this console comes with.

    The Xbox one s is a great upgrade. The new system is a lot smaller and it brought back the physical push buttons so no more accidental turning on or off of the system. One of my very things about the new Xbox one s is how quiet it is. It so quiet you wouldn't even know it's on if you weren't paying any attention. I got it for these reasons and to have a 4k setup. The games are not 4k but content watched like Netflix are 4k and games are at least upscales with HDR. Just make sure if you get a 4k tv it has a higher level of HDR to really see the difference in gaming. Overall it was a great investment and very satisfied with my purchase.

    not good for 4k

    I expected since I was getting this XBox One S that it is designed for my new Sony 4k TV. I hooked up my DirecTV receiver through the XBox and it downgraded the picture quality of DirecTV so bad that I am taking it back the next day after hooking it up. It lost network connection over night and took all day to download the apps and games that I cared to play. I didn't play any of them because I wanted to snap the TV while I am playing a game. Snapping the TV is cool, but no good when you can't watch TV in HD. That's right, it downgraded the picture quality below HD where it changed the picture to a square!

    Great experience in this store unlike the two stores in Paramus and the store in butler/river dale N.J. the reps here were great and helped me all they can. Even the manager got involved a bit and assisted with the trouble the rep had at the register. Amazing experience overall. I hate those other stores they treat me like junk, not knowing I’m young and successful. They think I’m wasting their time. I spend $10k a year at bestbuy. I finally signed up for rewards. Now I can write reviews. WOODLAND PARK IS GREAT. GARDEN STATE Mall, Paramus, riverdale are terrible

    After buying a 4K TV, I purchased this X-box One. It played 4K movies and sent my gamer son into raptures, who always wanted an Xbox in addition to his PlayStation but knew he would could only have one or the other. I bought the 1t because I know how fast the hard drive fills up with games and this bundle came with Forza Horizon 3 which my son has wanted to play. He loves his X-box and I love watching movies on it. It really upscales the blu rays. I just wish I could use a regular remote. I think I am too old for this controller stuff!!!

    Purchased the XBox One S instead of the X after debating if the difference in price was worth it. I do have a 4K tv, but finally decided that it just wasn't worth coughing up a couple extra hundred for an X. I don't think I'm missing much (*maybe* load time, but even that isn't terrible) and the graphics look fantastic. I got the Forza Horizon bundle & the game is a lot of fun with absolutely amazing graphics. Highly recommend if you're looking for a great console. I personally prefer it to the Playstation, mostly because of the difference in controllers.

    Glad to go back to Xbox. Traded PlayStation 4 in. Only issue was that although it came with Forza, it was a download and would have taken 50 GB to load which would have ate up all my data for the month. No mention of that from salesperson either. Very disappointed in that and ended up just going out and buying the game. Also, if you do not have internet, you can’t use the system as it had many updates before I could even play it. With the exception of those issues, I still prefer the Xbox graphics and overall availability of games.

    There needs to be an option to get a disc version of the game bundled instead of a digital download. We live in a rural area and it cost me about $40 in data charges over the course of a month to download the game and the updates... so many updates... and the time it took to download the game... freakin forever! My advice is that BestBuy negotiate with Microsoft to always include a CD copy of the game so you have an option if you don't want to wait days to play it.

    Bought this to replace our original Xbox One. It's incredibly quiet, and the size difference is noticeable, and keeps the entertainment center from becoming too cluttered. The 4K video is pretty awesome, even without HDR, you can see a difference. Game load speeds seem to be about the same, and even though the controller was redesigned, mine seems to disconnect often enough to be a nuisance. The lack of a Kinect port is a bit of a bummer since we already had one. All in all, excellent upgrade if you're coming from a 360 or even a 3 year old Xbox one.
