    Pros and Cons vs. The Original Xbox One,

    Today is a day I have waited a long time for, the day my Xbox One is no longer the size of a VCR from 1989. Compared with the original Xbox One, we have a few key differences. Most good, but not all. Pros vs. Original Xbox One: [+] 40% smaller! And yes, the difference is very noticeable [+] 4K output. Not as big of a deal to most people as 4K adoption is not huge yet, and it's only really for video/Blu-ray (games are upscaled) [+] The side USB port has been moved from the left side to the front, which is great for space saving (if another device is to the left) and less damaging if someone trips over the USB cable. [+] No gloss finish. They did get rid of the gloss in a minor pre-S refresh, but I'm happy to see it is completely gone. As always, glossy finishes look great on day one but do NOT age well (easily scuffed and scratched). [+] Built-in power supply. To me, this is HUGE (reverse pun intended). The old power supply added an unreasonable amount of heft to the already oversized console. It is especially great if you like to pack and travel with your Xbox since that's one less brick to carry around, and makes it much easier and cheaper to have spare 'travel' power cables so you don't have to remove your main cables when traveling. [+] Hardware upgrade. In addition to the 4K hardware upgrade (HDMI 1.4 vs HDMI 2.0), there is more processing power available for HDR, though to be honest I'm not sure how much I care about that. The real hardware upgrade won't be until Project Scorpio in 2017. [*] Higher capacity. You can now choose from models ranging from 500GB to 2TB! I definitely recommend no less than 1TB considering how quickly these games eat up hard drive space. I'm not a fan of cluttering up my area with external USB hard drives, so the extra internal space of the 2TB version was a huge selling point to upgrade. Cons vs. Original Xbox One: [-] As of launch, only available in white. Don't get me wrong, the white looks beautiful, but you can't go wrong with additional color choices. In my case, white matching NOTHING else in my home theater setup, so I would have preferred to stick with black. I'm sure that will come soon though. [-] No elite version (yet), which means no hybrid SSD available for faster load times. Elite controller still works great though. [-] Does not offer any option of a bundled Kinect, though it has been clear for awhile that Kinect support has been dwindling. [-] Does not include a headset, not even a cheapy earbud-style one. [-] Kinect users *raises own hand* effectively lost a USB port. They removed the Kinect-specific port, so now you'll have to use up one of the two rear USB ports to get your Kinect on. This also raises the issue of the console not including a Kinect-to-USB adapter, which just adds extra hassle to get your Kinect Kinected again. PSA regarding Kinectability mentioned above: For a limited time, you can get a free Kinect-to-USB adapter by contacting Xbox Support and providing your serial numbers. *Is it worth upgrading my Xbox One?* There is not a one-size-fits all answer to this. For me, it was a yes, as I was replacing a secondary Xbox One and I wanted the 2TB and smaller footprint. My Elite is still my main console, which I'm not ready to replace with the S due to the hybrid SSD and color. For most people, I would bet the answer is no. If money is a concern, it's probably no. If you don't 4K game or need the extra terabyte, it's probably no. If you're just a tech geek like me and always need the latest stuffs and thingies, then go for it! Ultimately, I'm still much more eagerly awaiting the full Scorpio hardware update, but the Xbox One S was a long overdue refresh. If nothing else, it at least leaves the Xbox One no longer as a beastly, oversized, whalephant, VCR, gargantuan, monolithic mass of plastic as its prior version was.

    4k blu ray player has major issues

    Posted

    • My Best Buy® Elite MemberElite Member

    The 4k blu ray player is clearly one of the biggest selling points and the biggest differences between the xbox one s and the ps4 pro. Unfortunately the 4k blu ray player is horrible. And their customer service is clueless. I bought the movie Eddie The Eagle 4k. It didn't work, so I returned it. Copy number 2, and number 3 also would not work. I found an xbox support forum saying there was a bad batch of blu rays manufactured in early 2016 and a lot of people were having the same issues on a whole slew of other movies. Xbox claimed it was the disks that were the issue not the xbox, and that I should return it to the movie studio for a replacement. After paying shipping and waiting 4 weeks for my replacement from 20th Century Fox, it still didn't work. I read the forums some more and found where xbox admitted their blu ray player was manufactured to a newer spec than older blu ray players and those 4k movies weren't manufactured to that newer spec. In other words, the xbox blu ray player isn't backwards compatible with 4k movies made less than a year ago. Yet xbox still claims it's the disks not the xbox that have the problem. I returned my xbox and got a philips 4k blu ray player. The same disk that would not play on xbox played flawlessly on that. I wish I never listened to the best buy employee and stuck with the 4k player to begin with. If xbox would have just been up front about it, maybe put some kind of warning on the box this wouldn't have been such a big issue for me. But to me it just looks like they won't take responsibility for their bad player and are trying to cover their own butts. Waste enough of your time returning movies until it's too late to return the xbox. Fortunately for me, Best Buy's holiday return policy was still in effect. Also, Xbox doesn't support the most common sound format for 4k blu rays which is Dolby Atmos. They only give you a dumbed down version of it. And I guess they say its coming eventually some day in an update. But everything I found on that was very misleading and customer support is clueless on that as well. You need to be part of a special "preview/insiders" program in order to get it. And they make you think you can join, but you can't. At least not the part that would actually give you Atmos Sound. It's like buying a stereo and only the left speaker works, and they tell you the right one will work with an update some unforeseeable day in the future. To me, that's total BS. If it's being sold as a 4k blu ray player, I expect it to be a fully featured and fully functional 4k blu ray player right out of the box. This one isn't. And their customer service as well as the sales pitch they are promoting are very misleading. At least PS4 is up front about what it does and does not support. Honestly, It would be better to leave out the 4k player than put a bad one in. On a side note, my ps3 that I bought years ago that really started the idea of an all in one entertainment system, never had any issues. Even that will support Dolby Atmos sound on regular blu rays. And it shouldn't be expected to since it's an older system. My PS3 supported 3D blu rays as well, and is still being used on another TV. PS3 did it right when they included a blu ray player. I really wish one of the modern consoles would follow that example with 4k blu rays, but I guess we are out of luck.

    My only complaint about this model is 500GB is way too small. I would go with 1TB minimum. If you can spring for the 2 TB go for it. I've generally been a PlayStation user, right up through the PS3. I decided I would initially skip the PS4 and Xbox one until they showed longevity and got upgraded. I have also, typically bought Xbox machines at the end of their cycle, and I have always liked them. Xbox also seems to start slow and build when they release new machines vs the PlayStation. So I waited to see the new versions of each machine, and went with the Xbox One S over the PS4 Slim. Once again Xbox started off slow, but in these upgrade versions I think it has taken the lead in architecture, Hard Drive Space, and Price. Compared with the original Xbox One, we have a few key differences. Most good, some would say not all good, but as far as the "Cons" go, none of them mean that much to me. However, I have listed them for those who might care. They are as follows: Pros vs. Original Xbox One: 1) 40% smaller! And yes, the difference is very noticeable (see my comparison pictures) 2) 4K output. Not as big of a deal to most people as 4K adoption is not huge yet, and it's only really for video/Blu-ray (games are up scaled) but I have a 4K TV, so why not get ahead of the curve for once (PS4 Slim does not offer this). 3) The side USB port has been moved from the left side to the front, which is great for space saving 4) No gloss finish. As always, glossy finishes look great on day one but do not age well (easily scuffed and scratched). 5) Built-in power supply. 6) Hardware upgrade. In addition to the 4K hardware upgrade (HDMI 1.4 vs HDMI 2.0), there is more processing power available for HDR. 7) Higher capacity. You can now choose from models ranging from 500GB to 2TB. The extra internal space of the 2TB version was a huge selling point to upgrade. 8) The new Xbox One controller with Bluetooth, 3.5 mm Headphone jack built in, and new textured handles. Current Xbox users seem more excited about the controller than anything else! Cons vs. Original Xbox One (Again, I personally couldn't care less.) 1) As of launch, only available in white. I think it looks slick. 2) No elite version for the real game geeks. 3) Does not offer any option of a bundled Kinect, though it has been clear for awhile that Kinect support has been dwindling, and I find these motion sensors to be gimmicks (Go outside or to a gym. Meet someone Jeez!). 4) Does not include a headset, not even a cheapy earbud-style one. The one thing I do care about. All in all I think it's a great buy for these systems, and it looks like it will be around for a little while longer.

    The game system is tough to learn

    So I would assume most people reviewing this would want know if they should buy this over a playstation or they just bought it checking reviews. Either way I honestly can say I don't have that answer for you.There is a few things I want to explain to cover how this purchase will effect you. First if you are buying it for yourself. Make sure you have the patience and the knowledge to get things running. Apps took me a minute download and operate. The biggest problem I have with this is its very hard. I hook up a lot of things in my house and have a lot of electronics. And this is pretty difficult to navigate. Personally I should see if there is a remote for things like getting out of apps or simply getting back to downloading. I had to google everything. And the back button didn't always bring me back to the home screen. The games are super heavy in memory. 47 gigs for the battlefied that came with it. And 47 gigs downloading takes a very long time. Even getting my blu ray on I needed to download an app. And another thing about the apps, i wish you could add what apps you want to be honest. I want my Id channel app, i could use an oxygen channel app and so on. People are trying to steer away from cable so all the TV apps they can get they should put it on here. With that said things I do like. I like the game when I played it. Didn't last but for 30 seconds but my last video game system was a playstation 3 and I wasn't great at that either. So i'm not used to the xbox controls. I think they should include a tutorial on this system. Explaining exactly how you get out of some screens. My roommate has an xbox 360 and I know she is probably jealous cause I don't even use my xbox 1 s. It plays 4k and I got it cause I haven't been in gaming for a while. But i have a external blu ray writer for my computer with a graphics card, so I mostly spend time on that. I don't even use it for the blu ray. And I have an apple tv which works great. If you have a streaming device and you have simply a blu ray players are you don't really care to play 4k then this system probably wont do anything for you unless you are gamer which I am not. If they wanted some advice, add more apps. Ones that separate the xbox from others. And make the controls a lot easier or teach people. I have a 55 inch samsung tv so it does look good when I play it. And when I get a new 4k tv i might get more use out it. But right now it just collects dust until I decide to get involved in games. Cause its not user friendly.

    Better System, but cheaper look and feel

    I was looking for a second xbox one for my house. I already had the original 1 TB xbox one console, but I wanted a second for my bedroom. I decided to buy the Xbox One S 500GB because I didn't need as much hard drive space in my bedroom as my living room. The Xbox One S looks and feels cheaper than the original Xbox because it has actual buttons on the console that are plastic. I prefer the touch screen style on the original console. I love that the Xbox One S has a built in power supply! I also love the smaller size. It takes up a fraction of the space that the original would. The controller has a textured grip and is lighter than the original. The system is set up the same, but it is noticeably faster than the original console. My games load faster, the apps work faster, my Netflix searches are faster, and the overall picture in the games is better. I would recommend this console instead of the original, but I wouldn't replace the original with it. There just aren't enough major differences to switch. I only bought it as my second console because its a tiny bit better.

    Overall the Xbox one S offers a lot for the money. If you can get the bundle I did for the price I would say it's worth it. Battlefield 1 bundle, extra wireless controller, and 3 mos of Gold live for $249 is great. But retail it's not worth it. I have the PS4 pro and it just can't compete. I really don't use the 4k bluray player so that isn't really a plus. It's just there. If you're an Xbox fan then it's great. If you're used to PlayStation then you will find issues with it. For example, I have Battlefront on PS4. And really enjoyed it. Looks great. Got it on sale on Xbox and it looks terrible. I thought I was playing Battlefront on the GameCube. Apparently the Xbox version of the game is rendered in 720 and the PS4 is 900p. But you'll find those kind of comparisons often that many games struggle to meet the frame rate or resolution compared to PS4 or especially the PS4 pro. So with all that said, if you love Xbox then you'll love this if the price is right. If you love PlayStation but are debating getting this console to play a few exclusives you might be disappointed. I pretty much let my kids just use this and play and I use my PS4 pro. If you're going to invest in a console and not sure which one to get then hands down the PS4 pro is the better console. For many years. Even when Scorpio comes out it will be cheaper and comparable to Microsoft new hardware. Just my take on it tho.

    Reviewing as UHD/Blu-Ray/DVD player

    I won't speak to this device as a gaming console, as I purchased it based upon the salesperson's suggestion as a UHD player. I would urge you to spend your money on a dedicated media player. The lip-sync is off on the console (regardless of which format you use). I followed various on-line advice on how to fix it, and none of it works. As of December 24, 2016, the blu-ray player app is garbage. I've tested each format (UHD/BR/DVD) on the system and the lip-sync and sound is off quite noticeably I then, after purchasing a dedicated UHD player, tested the same three discs and the sound works properly. I also tested two of the discs in a different console, and they worked fine as well. This may be a great game console, but it is a terrible media player. Don't purchase it for that purpose. [A quick search of the web shows that this has been an ongoing issue with the Microsoft Xbox One blu-ray app since, at least, May 2014--I probably should have done better research before making the purchase.]

    New and improved, smaller design. Much better to commute with. No more power brick. Standard power cable same as (PS4). Redesigned controller , its narrow and has a slight textured grip. It's also got Bluetooth to interface with your phone or PC. Great for steam games. 4K blu ray and 4K Netflix . This comes with a digital key for Battlefield 1. This download took over a day with FIOS 50/50 internet on wifi.The console needed a few updates as well as the controller. Plan accordingly if you make this a gift. Otherwise it's gonna be 24-48 before you can play online. Same old GUI interface. Slow laggy. PS4 will always win hands down for just to sit down make a party and play the darn game. Xbox wants to do too much and control your tv and has to many tiles and apps. I do like the white color and smaller design as well as the Bluetooth added to the controller. It's interface is marginally better but it's still indeed an improvement. If you don't need smaller design Bluetooth controller, 4K or don't have a 4K tv wait for the Scorpio which will be 4K gaming @60 fps, (which sounds too good to be true especially when high end multi thousand dollar pcs struggle to output.) We'll see.

    Like Xbox 360 Only Different

    I replaced an Xbox 360 with a shinny new Xbox One S. So my review is not just of the Xbox One but the Xbox One in comparison to the Xbox 360. The Good The controller, the changes were not that radical but the controller has a distinctly more ergonomic design. The Meh The User interface. It is definitely a whole lot different. It is taking a little time to get accustomed to the new interface. I wouldn't say it is better or worse than the 360 interface just different. In all fairness though Microsoft does like to change stuff for the sake of changing it, i.e. MS Office, Windows 8 etc. The Bad I am not sure if it is just my console or the Xbox 1 S in general but man is it LOUD when you play a DVD on it. I mean like turn the movie up to drown out the intense whirring noise. It is so loud I think I am going to avoid using my console to play movies which is annoying because that was one of the biggest reason I bought it in the first place. In the end I am just not sure what if anything I gained with this upgrade. So far I have yet to come across anything on the One S that has left me saying man I am glad I dropped the money to upgrade to this new box.

    Huge Improvement and Value for 4K

    As a long time PlayStation fan it is hard for me to write this review saying that I've been more impressed with Xbox's new console iteration than anything Sony has put out with the PS4 Pro. Sony's decision to not include a 4K Blu-ray player was my leading cause for looking into purchasing an Xbox One S and I am not disappointed. The Xbox One S boasts a slicker design and gets rid of the bulkiness that plagued the original Xbox One all wall including 4K and HDR gaming and movies. Also if you're trading in your Xbox one for this it helps with the already low price of their bundles. It is after all the cheapest 4K Blu-ray player on the market and it does so much more as well. Games look astounding such as Battlefield 1! As much of a Sony fanboy as I have been I have to say that Microsoft is winning me over at this point in the generation. Sony has some catching up to do. If you're looking for a great console with tons of integrated features and a 4K Blu-ray player there's no choice right now better than the Xbox one S. Good job Microsoft!

    Great 4k Player

    I was torn between the Xbox One and PS4, when the Xbox One S rolled out with the smaller form-factor, internal power brick and 4K blu-ray player, that sealed the deal for me. The setup was easy and only owning Nintendo products along with Sony PlayStations, the Xbox was real easy to pick up and use. Xbox One S specific gripe: The controllers seem to make your hands sore after an hour or so, a couple of guys said the same thing All current gen console/game gripes: Why the lack of 2 players on the same console for most games? Some of us do still have actual friends that we would like to tip a few beers with and shoot each other on-screen EXTREME sized updates and even with the physical disk, the install normally needs gigs upon gigs of data downloaded All-in-all, this thing is great! My gripes above are probably pretty standard for anyone and I have nothing but good things to say about the Xbox One S. If you are thinking about buying it, just go for it, for the price and the 4K player alone it is worth it.

    Covered a lot of reviews, question & answers, articles before purchasing the Xbox One S for my kids. I was excited about being able to play 4k movies and the use of the Kinnect. The first console quit powering up after the 5th day. It was plugged into its own outlet and not into a surge protector. When the power button was pushed it would light up for a few seconds and then turn off. After being on the phone and online support for more than 3 hours, it was decided to return the console. The exchange went without issue. But now the second console seems glitchy. Have had to hard power cycle at least once or twice a day when movies and/or games wont load. Issues with screen going haywire. 4k movies not loading. I am on my 3rd console, so law of averages shows 66% of your products have problems. If it wasnt for the ease of exchanges I would have just returned this last one and gotten my money back. But I will say that when it is working, the game play, kinnect and movies are great. Just need better stability.

    I've always wanted to give Xbox a try, but I didn't want to invest a lot of money in doing so. I don't own a UHD 4K television, but I have a 1080p Samsung HDTV. Simply put, if you don't own a 4K television and are looking for an inexpensive way to play games, the Xbox One S is for you. And if you decide to purchase a UHD 4K television down the road, the Xbox One S has built-in upscaling to 4K resolution, albeit not native 4K. If you're really looking for native 4K gaming, then wait for the release of the Xbox One X or invest in a 4K gaming capable PC. What distinguishes this iteration of the Xbox One family from its predecessor is the ability to play UHD Blu-Ray discs and stream 4K content from services like Netflix, something that my PS4 Slim doesn't have the capabilities to do. Overall, it's a great complement to the other gaming systems I already own, and I'm looking forward to exclusive content and games down the road.

    Had a few glitches in setup. Controller would not stay connected. I had to connect via USB cable in order to update the controller. With only one controller with system, it couldn't function without it as the controller would not work properly. After I worked through the setup, everything went smoother. One issue I thought was a HUGE DRAWBACK is this. I was told when I purchased the item if at any point in the next two weeks, the item was cheaper, bring in the receipt and they would refund the difference. So the items goes cheaper within the 2 weeks, I bring in the receipt and Best Buy says "Sorry, you need to bring the item back. We'll refund you and then you can take the item back through the checkout to get the discount." UNACCEPTABLE!!!! They changed their policy from the time I bought it to the time the unit went on sale. So the unit gets 4 stars but Best Buy get -1 star for customer service. Next time, I will purchase online at another retailer and bypass the store.

    Xbox One is 3rd when it comes to gaming consoles, next to PS4, and then PC. Don't get me wrong. I love my Xbox One S, but owning three consoles, I would have to go with the PC, and then moving my way down to the Xbox. One of the best thing about the Xbox One is that you can have an additional External Hard Drive, unlike the PS4. I have a 4TB HD connected to my Xbox One S, and trust me... with all of the games I own, it's still not half way full! Where as the Playstation 4. You would have to buy a 2TB Internal HD and installing things in. I just hate having to break everything apart and putting the pieces back together. Overall, I love my Xbox One S, it's sexy looking, inside and out, the controller looks and feel amazing. It fits perfect with my hands, the UI is gorgeous and simple. Easy to navigate, and the accessories that you can get with the Xbox is point on. Talk about that Xbox Elite Controller tho.

    Had to upgrade from our 360. I bought this in a bundle on sale for under $200. 500 GB is VERY small for today's games so I HIGHLY recommend getting a 2 TB console for the extra $100 as you're going to spend at least that much for an external drive of 1TB. If you are just staring out with no game library, this might be okay for you. If you're like me, I had 55 games already to download when I first signed on to my console from Games with Gold free games. I also already had a brand new external 4TB USB 3.0 drive that was just sitting around. Future proof yourself now. Most games, if not all, need to be installed on the console (like you would computer games) whether you buy a disc from the store or download from Microsoft/online. 500 GB is just a snack for these games. I only recommend this size console to people who doesn't play a lot of games and to people who want 4K Blu-ray player.

    I finally decided to upgrade my Xbox 360 into an Xbox 1 due to the fact that a game was coming out I wanted that I would no longer be able to play on my 360. I also didn't want to buy a laptop to play this particular game on so that I could use it on my TV and my desktop was too far away even for the longest HDMI cable. The graphics obviously are on par with other gaming systems and are good for the price of the system. The games work fine and all but, the interface is not nearly as easy to navigate as the 360 and earlier. Also, my Xbox Slim overheated twice so I had to go buy third party USB attachable fans to keep it cooled. To top it off, it is absolutely ridiculous that games MUST be downloaded onto the Xbox hard drive. I am not very happy with the system and have not bought any more games since the initial purchase.

    This is my first Xbox ever. I've been playing my PS3 for the last decade and after I got the ylod, I figured it was time to try something new. The main reason (other than price) I chose to go Xbox1 over PS4 was the 4k player. I have no idea why Sony dropped the ball on that one. The menu system is odd, but I guess I'm getting used to it. I just favor Android over all other systems and Microsoft just seems to be behind the curve with their OS these days. It actually takes quite a bit of time for the Xbox to load up, I'm not sure if it's because it's trying to log me in or what, but it seems like it should be much quicker. I've only played a few games (Battlefield1, Fallout4, and Minecraft, but the images look great. I play on a 65" Samsung (ks8000) and everything looks spectacular. Getting the free controller with the B1 bundle was a great value!

    Slim factor a plus

    This was purchased as a replacement for my teenage daughter's Xbox 360 that was failing. The slim form factor over the original Xbox One is a great improvement, as is no longing having the clunky brick to manage. Seems to be a slight improvement in performance over the original One console, however the aesthetic appearance feels a little cheaper. Gone is the "touch" Xbox One button on the front (this one actually is a depression button). I also prefer the all-black model, it just looks a little sleeker in my opinion. Also haven't had a chance to view the 4K Bluray player since it's in a kids room. Note: Battlefield 1 was a bonus for me since I was already looking to buy the game, so by getting this console on sale for $250 made it feel more like I was buying BF1 for the $60 while only paying $190 for the new Xbox. Win-win if you ask me.

    I have never been much of a gamer, but when I saw the totally capability of this machine in ads, YouTube videos, etc. I began to realize this would be a great entertainment center for my TV Room. First of all games are awesome! The picture and audio quality are top notch. It has 4K capability but my plasma display (Samsung PN51F8500) does a great job at 1080p and can handle the 24p frame rate this box can put out, .Blue Ray disks are excellent also as are video streams. If you have a fast network, you definitely want this box hooked up. Setup is easy, but it has taken me a little time to navigate smoothly around the menus. Great controller also, nice design! MS has dropped the price $50, but they also no longer give you the extra controller. I would call it another purchase choice rather than a real price drop, whatever, it is worth the price of admission.
