    Best budget buy

    |
    |
    Posted .

    This is the best budget Xbox console that you can buy. The Minecraft Builders Bundle contains a white slim console that was newly manufactured in Oct or Nov 2018, can't remember which one but it's new and oh so quiet, virtually silent, and there is no annoying external power brick and it comes with a power cable, HDMI cable, 4 codes for the Minecraft bundle and a code for a 1 month game pass trial and 14 days of Xbox Live Gold. This bundle contains an updated white controller that uses 2 AA batteries or micro USB (I have my controller powered by my phone charger lol), has a textured grip, a headphone port for chat or for just listening to audio, which is convenient for late night gaming, movies or music, just lower your TV to silent and use some headphones, a longer connection range and the controller can be used via Bluetooth with Windows 10. This is a great bundle to have if you are on a budget and want a quality console to game on. The new update allows you to use 1440p at 60Hz for gaming and you will get the best gameplay if you have the right size monitor that can use both. This console also allows the use of 4K, HDR10, Dolby Vision and a setting to allow video apps to play 3D if you have a 3D-TV. There is so much more to list about the console but I'm done staring at my phone when my console is waiting for me. I finally have an Xbox One again. No more loud, ear ringing Xbox 360!

    Great Black Friday deal !

    Terrific deal on an Xbox One S during Black Friday. Came to deciding if I wanted the One S, or for a cpl hundred more the One X. Honesty, unless you're a hardcore gamer, with a top of the line Super UHD TV, you won't notice the difference. The picture quality and resolution on my regular 4k tv, with the Xbox One S, is brilliant. Save yourself that $200+, and get more games and accessories.

    This was a replacement for the Xbox One my son has had for 4 years. I thought about an X but be for him, but he doesn't need that right now. This Xbox S was very late in shipping. I ordered it on Black Friday and didn't get it until nearly 2 weeks later. I think someone must've stolen the first order. But I called BEST BUY and they sent me another one. Anyway, my some loves the S and he says the graphics are a bit brighter, games load a bit quicker. I personally haven't noticed much of a difference.,.I think he was just excited because it was Christmas. Haha

    This is a fine Console, comes with a good 4K blue ray player. the graphics are great. i have both the XBOX one X and the S comparing them side by side you can tell the X is just more detailed and refined. but don't snooze on the S the graphics are really good especially if you can get it for the $200 price as i did on sale.

    Great Console at a good value

    This is probably the best time to buy an XBox One S because of all of the great deals that are on this console. The online gaming experience as well as the exclusives on this are definitely worth it (I am a racing car fan so Forza was a great deciding factor for me). The package comes with a lot of stuff in including trial membership for online gaming and Minecraft which my kids love, so its a good way to start out for the entire family. The only advice I would give is to buya second controller with this console on day one to get the most out of family game time.

    I have never been one to be tech savvy. So I really appreciate it when there are associates that take the time to explain the difference between what I’m looking at on the shelf before I just grab what looks best. I appreciate that they take the time to ask questions as well about what kind of internet, speed, I have etc. the things I needed to know so my son would have the best experience with his gift.

    Great value console, all in one living room device

    Bought it in 2018 Black Friday sales! The ease of use is very easy to install, just make sure you have the appropriate TV to play games and movies. So far, had no problems with it, played some XBOX ONE, XBOX360 games and watch some 4K movies with no issues, but time will tell! I know i might have wrote this review a little early, but i have fate that this console will last longer than the previous version of it! Recommend to a friend! Cons: 1TB storage isn't exactly what i expected, it's supposedly or actual capacity that you can use to store games is 780GBs of free space! If you want more storage, you can get an external hard drive!

      Hey Kyle,

      Thank you for recommending Xbox One S! We're glad that you've had a good experience playing games and watching 4K movies. And good call on suggesting that an external hard drive if you need more space for installed games.

    Attractive, Well Made

    I had a 360 for years before it finally died. My family still wanted to play their games so for Christmas we got an Xbox One. The design is very attractive and became a center piece on our entertainment center. Functionally, the interface works but it still confusing. Specifically, how to "stop" a game or app requires several navigation steps. Games I've played have worked well, but I find the controller a bit too sensitive for my tastes. I got the Minecraft edition and it does come with a number of bonus material in the form of coupons. I am somewhat disappointed that the controller doesn't come with rechargeable battery options. Too this point, the major issue I have with Xbox is the pay to do anything model. The console isn't cheap and yet almost every option involves an additional cost. I like this version, but I wish there was more emphasis on included value.

    I bought this XBOX One to give to my girlfriend so we can play some Gears of War, Left 4 Dead 2, Fortnite, and other co-op games. It's a great system that has the added benefit of being a 4k UHD player. Great library of games to choose from. While definitely not as powerful as it's older sibling, the One X, it's still a great console. 1TB of space tends to fill up quickly, especially with game updates and DLC, but luckily I had a few spare external hard drives for extra space.

    We got the Xbox bundle here at the best price we’ve seen yet. There are so many games that we can find something for everyone to play, even my 2yo daughter loves to help with the Frozen game. I found that a lot of the stuff requires the internet and a subscription to one of the services to really get the most bang for your buck. Luckily, they’re not terribly expensive and they come with the bonus of getting access to a lot of other games.

    Who doesn't love Minecraft and a newer XBOX at the time. Great purchase to retire the old 360. I am a bit annoyed that every time, I want to pick up a game after not playing for months, I have to download 30GBs of updates before I can play.

    Xbox is perfect entertainment centerpiece

    I bought the Xbox One for what some would consider unusual reasons. Primarily I wanted a 4K Blu-ray player for my new 4K TV, but I also wanted to play through the Xbox classics I loved growing up such as the Halo and Gears of War series. It has not disappointed, it's been great. I also recommend using HDMI passthrough for your cable box. Watching TV, playing games, and watching movies all within the Xbox ecosystem is awesome.

    Better product for price than ps4

    At the $199 price point this was a much better purchase than the ps4 Spider-Man bundle. The one s offers full 2160 4K uhd while the ps4 only offers 1080p hdr. The bundled Minecraft also came with a starter pack, creative pack an 1000 coins which was generous I thought. The Spider-Man bundle came with Spider-Man, no DLC’s included. I do like the fact that we don’t need to buy a separate charger pack for the controller though. Still, Xbox bundle wins.

    I am relatively new to the gaming world; however, I was told nothing but good things about the new Xbox. So, I decided to try it for myself. I am definitely not disappointed in my purchase! Nearly every day, I use this item for my Netflix use and personal game usage. I have not experienced much (if any) lag in my gameplay and the fan is not very loud, even after hours of use. I would definately recommend this product!

    I was torn between the new Xbox X and after quite a few reviews ended up going for the Xbox S for my 9 year old son. His tv isn’t a 4K and if we upgrade his tv the new Xbox X will still work with any Xbox S games he has.... got a great deal and when talking to my son he was definitely more excited about an older version with more games as opposed to a newer version with fewer games. Happy with the purchase given the circumstances!
