    I had problems with Xbox One S's in this bundle

    I had 2 of these bundles and had to ultimately switch to a different xbox one s bundle because of quality control issues from the factory with the xbox included in this bundle. The major problem I encountered with xbox in this bundle had to deal with extremely loud internal fan. The fan sounded loose and would make a squeal noise constantly no matter what the xbox was doing. This was distracting while watching movieI called Microsoft and described the sound to them, they told me to return the xbox one s and exchange it immediately. There are videos on youtube about this issue. I went through 2 of these systems over a course of 2 days. I had enough and ultimately switched to another xbox one s bundle. The xbox one s in the other bundle is perfect and the fan is extremely quiet. A normal functioning xbox one s should be quiet and should not be audible from a few feet away. I did not have a chance to play the game included with this bundle because of the hardware issues.

    I've had the original Xbox before and I stopped playing it due to lack of good games. I gave the Xbox to my brother and one day he bought forza horizon 3. So I went to go check it out and I was very impressed with the game. So I waited to get the Xbox one s until the price dropped a little bit more. I saw this bundle at Best Buy and I said "screw it, I'm getting it now". This game looks amazing on my 4K tv. The colors are gorgeous. This game is the only reason why I got the Xbox. I will say though the Xbox one s is so much better than the original. The controller has been slightly updated and much more comfortable to hold for a while. I'm more of a PS4 guy and that's why I got this Xbox now rather than spend a ridiculous $500 on the new Xbox one x that's coming out.

    Microsoft - Xbox One S Console Bundle

    The console bundle that I purchased came with the console itself, two wireless controllers, the wires that were needed, a game code for Forza Horizon 3 and a 14-day trial membership. This the first time that I have purchased anything XBOX related and so far I am pleased with what I have purchased. The setup and installation were very easy and I was able to get started right away.The instructions were very simple and easy to follow and I was ready to play the game in less than an hour. I would definitely recommend this console as I am having a blast play the game that was included and other games that I have purchased separately!

    Xbox for media center

    I purchased the Xbox One as a media center device. By installing Plex, a Hauppauge TV tuner for OTA, a rooftop antenna, Hulu, Amazon, Netflix, Sling TV, NextPVR, MCEBuddy to remove commercials and connection to a laptop for media storage, I have cut off all cable tv services. Even with the above mentioned subscriptions (which most people have anyway)and $80/mo for internet, I will be saving about $700-$800 a year over cable tv. It does take some time to set up and work out the bugs, but it is well worth the effort to avoid the crazy cable fees and taxes. I still have all the programming I had with a $90/ month cable bill. BTW, it is also a great gaming system.

    We decided to pick this up along with our new T.V. and was not disappointed. I have always been a PlayStation fan, but after using this for a bit am very pleased with how well it operates in coordination with my laptop and other electronics. Having the ability to have a passthrough for HDMI has also opened more possibilities with the T.V. as well. I just wish we had bought the 1TB model instead, but have an external 3TB hard drive that picked up the slack from the smaller internal h.d.

    Xbox one s

    Due to a nice sale price I picked up an Xbox one s. I have been wanting a 4k player and now I have one. Picture looks great. Easy to setup. Things I found odd. I have had PlayStation’s for the past few years and found the interface horrible. I went to watch a movie and had to install the Blu-ray player. Really. The fact that you need to purchase a battery pack for the controller was also odd. Over all I’m getting adjusted to the Xbox home screen but prefer the Sony layout better.

    Best Buy always has a great selection of products and we had a difficult time choosing which television to purchase. Sales staff at our local store were very helpful in deciding on our final selection. This televising was a good compromise between our desired price point and the premium features included with many high-end units. It looks great, integrates nicely into our home and works well.

    After a long stint with the PS2 & PS3, I decided to jump ship and try the XBox world, partly because I was tired of the lack of backward compatibility of PS games whenever a new gaming console came out. Still getting used to XBox but so far I like it. Menu pages seem easy to navigate. Game play is great for F Horizon 3 and for Star Wars Battlefront. Love that the controller uses AA batteries.

    It takes time to load the game. Graphics are great, and seems more professional. But my personal views, games should have fun element that I feel Nintendo had been more creative in that area.. I wished Nintendo had progressed on further development. This was an ask by my kids. For this product, I think this bundle is cost effective.

    My son wanted me to try and learn to play some video games at my age (63) and recommended the XBox One. Great idea on his part and great investment on mine. Love the system and ease in setting it up. I still have a lot to learn about gaming but the system was the first big step. Easy to set up, easy to use.

    I have to admit, I was hesitant to buy this for my son’s for Christmas. I did manage to hold off for many years and now at 12 and 9, they are the right age to enjoy the games. Wide variety of games for the whole family. Great deals through the Gold package. Great price!

    The Xbox One is a great system. This package was a great deal coupled with some rewards savings for a great birthday present. The combo pack with the remote and a slightly smaller hard drive was a better deal than the 1TB system and we can add external storage later if needed.

    recently switched out of the PlayStation universe and decided to try XBox for my next console. So far I like it a lot. I use mine predominantly for media use but very happy with gaming experience too. Like that the controllers can take rechargeable AA batteries.

    Microsoft has truly modernized the functionality of its game platform. However, it still hasn't solved for a way to quickly navigate the screens. Users still must use the game controller to plod thru the virtual keyboard.....takes way too much effort.

    I AM SO EXCITED FOR HDR GAMING. YOU CAN SEE THE SUN ANGLE REFLECTION ON THE SIDE OF THE CAR. AWESOME. 4K Players are basically the same price as the Xbox one S. Only downfall is xbox one s does not play dolby vision.

    No Where upfront it says it upscale games from 1080p to 4k even when the game supports 4k. But it is a fact and for a company like Microsoft I would expect it to be mentioned in the packaging / specs.

    My son loves Xbox. Nice to find the bundle with 500 GB hard drive and a slim console. The ultra 4K Ultra HD Blue Ray player is a nice feature if he decide to get a 4K TV eventually.
