    PS3 to Xbox One S - Love It

    I decided to surprise my son with an Xbox One this holiday, boy was he surprised! The Forza Horizon 3 bundle with the Hot Wheels DLC is so much fun! The Xbox One S came with one controller (with batteries), a download code for the Forza, one month of Xbox Live Game Pass (great way to try out games) and a 14 day trial code for Xbox Live Gold. The initial setup was easy and using a Microsoft account for email made it easier. I added my son as a child account and yesterday I received an email from MS on his usage: - Recent searches - Websites blocked - Most visited websites - Apps and games (usage) - Purchase and spending As a parent I was pleasanlty surprised with this email. The picture quality from the Xbox One is amazing and I do not have a 4K TV (1080p). There is so much you can do. I use an OTA antenna for our local HD channels and I found that I can buy a USB TV tuner for the Xbox and am looking forward to trying this. Having a Roku TV there are a lot of features I don't need to use but this can be your central point for Netflix, Hulu, Sling TV, local HD broadcast and more. The Xbox controller feels great and is comfortable to use. I've used the batteries that came with it and after a week of game play the batteries on the controller are ready to be replaced. I am going to look into the rechargeable batteries for these controllers. Right now, our family is really happy with this console and am looking forward to seeing what else it can do.

    Easy upgrade from a standard Xbox One

    One of the first things I noticed that I really liked about the One S is that there's no external power brick. Setup was as simple as could be, and once it was connected to my wifi network and went through its updates all I had to do was sign in and it imported all my system settings from my original Xbox One. I don't have a 4K TV so can't comment much on the picture, but it looks as great as it did before. I don't know whether things load faster than before or not, but it all seems smooth and snappy. I like the new style of controller that comes with it with a kind of textured grip on the back compared to the completely smooth original controllers. The controller pairing button is slightly more obvious than it was on the old system, and the forward USB port has been moved to the front instead of the side which is more convenient to get to. The problem I have with my chat headset where it seems to be open and broadcasting all the time, is the same as before but only the headset is unchanged so that's probably the culprit. I haven't downloaded the free game that came with it yet but I don't suspect there will be any difficulty, as there hasn't been in the past with this sort of thing. It only has a 500gb hard drive compared to the 1tb drive of my original system, but since I have an external 4tb drive it really wasn't an issue. This is a great system, and if you don't need the One X as I didn't then this is a sure winner.

    The amount of kids games is severely lacking. The games are fun, but it takes a long time to start and a long time for setup. I have played the lego ninja game the most for a reference. You sign in three or four different times and have to again for different players for some games. I have to create ids for each game sometimes and it takes up a lot of time. Overall its fun once you start playing but confusing advertising and interface. I signed up for game pass and it keeps showing me to sign up for a month when im already a memeber. Its confusing and lengthy setups with very little games for kids. Note, that I havent played anything else to see if they are just as bad, but i would not recommend this for young kids, but it may be ok for older kids.

    So I bought this more for tv watching than for playing games. In that regard it works fantastic. We have an Homerun set up for OTA broadcasts, and it streams Netflix and Amazon Prime in 4K brilliantly. It also plays Ultra HD Blu-ray discs. The picture quality isn't as good as it would be with a dedicated player, but sometimes you have to choose wife fidelity over high fidelity. Having one "thing" to do all tv things is convenient. Best Buy had a great bundle deal going where I got the console, an extra controller, and a game for $5 less than the MSRP of the console itself. The hard drive is already half full after only downloading a few games, so I'll probably have to spring for an external drive at some point. Still a good console/media player.

    500gb Xbox one s

    Not quite what I expected from coming from a 360 to the Xbox one. Upon opening I was disappointed in the fact that it comes with no head set or a Ethernet cable. The system came with Forza Horizon 3 Hot Wheels and after downloading it and my profile I was shocked at how much space was already taken up on the hard drive. I am not a fan of the dashboard layout compared to the 360. One the plus side your games load very fast after they have been downloaded. Keep in mind that you will have to delete games to be make space for more after you have a few loaded to the system. If I had it all to do over again I would have bought a 1TB system instead.

    I purchased this XBOX ONE S for my son during the Black Friday sale. Not only does the XBOX have a fantastic game library with games appropriate for all ages, but the XBOX ONE S serves as my son's Blu-Ray / DVD player and allows him to watch his favorite Netflix shows and movies. We picked up the bundle that included Forza Horizon 3, which isn't a cheap freebie but an amazing full sized game that in my opinion is far superior to other driving games. My only complaint is a 500GB XBOX hard drive fills up very fast and the included game is a download instead of a disc, which takes up a large amount of the hard drive space.

    I love the integration and how well it works in xbox live. Easy to set up. The biggest issues I've run into are the additional accounts that some of the other software provider force you to set up for. EA sports is especially a problem with their account and they try to match their info with Xbox and any small problem will cause you issues. I wish Xbox would force game producers to use their account info vs having to set up separate accounts with them and link. you'll love the xbox but be careful which games you but and read the fine print if they are not Microsoft.

    Bought Xbox One S bundle. Able to get extra controller with Forza Horizon 3 plus Hot Wheels for 229.99! I feel that was a deal for what you get. Playing Forza it did crash once but only the game and not the system (Forza might need another update). If I had a 4K TV and AV Receiver I would have just bought Xbox One X. My daughter loves the Hot Wheels track but you do have to unlock it in the game by racing (not hard) Customer Service in St. Petersburg is great especially Ellie very easy going and happy to help. Thank you!

    Xbox One S Hot Wheels

    My 8 yr son loves his new XBox One S he got for Christmas. The XBox One S has a few more features than the original such as 4K, IR device control, and head phone jack in the controller for chat and Skype. I also like the fact that the power supply is internal, so no power brick to conceal. The game is great, although you have to play a while to unlock the Hot Wheels add on. A little disappointed I had purchased Forza 3 separately, not realizing this came with the full game and the Hot Wheels add on.

    I used to own an Xbox 360 when it was first released and I have not owned an Xbox system in a long time. I recently purchased the Xbox One S and it does not disappoint. The system looks great and performs well. I like how the Xbox system is integrated with Microsoft One Drive for all of your cloud storage needs. There are lots of great games for the Xbox and right now there is a special where you buy a 3 month membership of Xbox Live Gold with and Xbox One S and you receive $10 off of the membership.

    Xbox one s 500G

    It is a good console. The big difference between the 360 and one s, is that the games have to be download and use storage on the console. If you play a lot of games, get the bigger storage. Halo 5 took forever (6 hours) to download. If you want to play blu ray discs, you have to download an app to be able to play the movie. We have 3 games and the blu ray app down loaded and half of our 500Gs is used up. The game playing quality is awesome and the controllers are easy to use. We really enjoy playing.

    I purchased this for my kids for Christmas, and I was completely disappointed. I asked questions at the store before buying, and I told the sales associate that we did NOT have the internet. He said that was okay it would still work. You need the internet for set up, so we did set up at grandmas, but it doesn't want to let us play offline even though the games and the associate said we could. I wouldn't recommend for anyone with out internet.

    I bought this for my cousin for his birthday, it came with a free game bundle. I can't believe how crazy the graphics are on this thing. Every detail is just perfect. It does have 4K capability for movies and what not when he wants to watch them, not that he does. It is very light weight and fits right under my TV and his TV with no issues. He uses it with a 65" Samsung TV with no issues. Overall, this is the best gaming console out there.

    My old Xbox 360 had been gathering dust on the shelf. Although I was wanting an Xbox One X, the price was a little high and decided to go with he S instead. Not disappointed one bit! It pairs well with my 4k monitor. Had to do an update before I could even set up. Then, next gripe is waiting a long time to download games, even at 40-50 Mbps download speeds. In all, waited over an hour to play the bundled games because they are downloads.

    My daughter got this for Christmas along with the Minecraft game and she loves it. I found that it took me a while to figure out how to use it, things have really changed since I owned an xbox and it is definitely not plug and play. Setting it up takes a while and I had to look at tutorials online even to figure out how to activate the wireless controller. My advice is to find a kid or teenager who can show you how to use it.

    I've am and will remain to be a PlayStation man, but the ratings and hype for Forza Horizon 3 made me very curious, since i'm a big racing game fan. The black Friday deal on this bundle made me want to check it out. I'm very glad that I did, because I would say this is my favorite racing game of all time. I just wish it was for the PS4 so I wouldn't have had to purchase an Xbox One. This is such a fun game!!!!

    I had the original Xbox and then PlayStations ever since until this one. The Xbox freezes up, sometimes games won't play, 2 player stopped working for one game, every game has to be saved to the hard drive but I still have to wait for long loading times. I will only buy Sony products for now on. The controllers come with batteries that don't recharge. I'm very dissatisfied with Xbox.

    Purchased for my nephew after his mom decided not to return his old one to him. Obviously the teen loves it... works great, no issues and... he's usually on it all weekend after working hard at school all week. Just be warned, this device can cause a sudden loss of your child or teen as they often succumb to the gaming darkness; seriously these gaming consoles are addictive. Must go play meow.

    While this RCA cable looks and feels nice, I found no additional improvement to the sound of my speakers vs using the cheaper $15.00 cables I already had. I literally had my wife switch the cables back and forth without me knowing and could not hear any audible difference. Maybe if you're looking for a fancy cable and can be fooled by a placebo effect, then this is the cable for you.

    This my second Xbox One console I have purchased. I have been real happy with the Xbox One overall. The graphics are excellent. I wish there were more family friendly games for it. It came with a 3-month game pass code that I won't use. Here it is if someone wants to use it: 2GQMW-HYD9R-WG44H-92F4K-WVKYZ
