    Xbox for the family

    I start off by saying I bought this for the Bluray and 4K streaming. I thought I would be the only one using it most of the time. Boy was I was wrong. My daughter was familiar with the Minecraft game that came with it but did not interest her very much. Instead my wife and I downloaded Legos Jurassic World. Since then my wife and daughter play it all the time. I do occasionally but not as much as they do. When you want to lose 2 hours of your time start playing the game and bam 2 hours fly by. Now with all this said about how great it is there are a couple of things so far that keep me from rating a 5 star. First the Legos game will freeze all of a sudden. Has happened twice so far and had to shut down and reboot game. Lost what we had done to that point. Not a huge deal but a pain non the less. Second which may or may not be an issue to you is that unless you have a 4K tv connected to it, the Xbox will not let you set it for 4K output. Now maybe I am not savey enough to figure it out but at least for me I could not get it to set for 4K output. Only 1080p which is what my TV actually is. Like I said these are truly minor things and may not mean anything to you. They happen to be to me. I do highly suggest it for some family fun though.

    Worth the upgrade?

    Bought as gift for my son, who loves it. We skipped the first generation as we have multiple Xbox 360s so thought this was a huge leap. Good buy except for two issues. First, I didn't like (our understand) the need for the out of box upgrade for the console and controllers, both of which took exceedingly long times. Second, I failed to check the list of backward compatible games (my bad) only to find out that the recent '17 sports games we bought on 360 didn't work. Had to trade and upgrade, taking a $$$ hit. Would've been nice for MSFT to at least have included those for play immediately. Could've been in the upgrade we had to wait all night for. Otherwise, after some patience and a few more $$ spent, we've finally started to play. Looking forward to testing the full capabilities of the new console.

    XBox One S. Great device. Like everything these days, you must connect to the internet, wait for updates, log in to multiple things, etc. If you think you can pop in a disc and play, you are wrong. I would recommend getting the large storage XB One S. But if you get a 500gb you can easily add external storage to it. Usually pretty cheap too. As far as I understand you play the games from the hard drive now, and not from the disc. It stores the games on the drive, so you need lots of space. I could be wrong, but this seems to be the case so far. Great unit though, works great. I knocked off a star because in my opinion 500gb is too small. Just a few games and the thing will be filled to the max. My son only plays 1 game so far. He'll add NBA 2k shortly...Space goes quick.

    Fast, realiable, can switch between games/apps easily. Customer support is friendly, and has 4K capabilities! Easily link your Microsoft account on PC to Xbox or phone and enjoy great features. You can also snap apps so two things can be running at the same time. Good for listening to music, and gaming! Have chats with friends, send messages, and play video games all with a few touches of different buttons! I gave 4 stars only because Xbox has a bad reputation service, and actually become- "avoid me" if doing things that are not desirable by other players. Example- Playing certain characters, using certain weapons, and being being better than other players. This can get your rep to quickly become avoid me. Beware of that!

    The console itself looks stunning - visually. Unfortunately I have had the console freeze a couple times in the month that I have had it. I bought this console to play Forza Horizon 3 (which looks incredible). I have had a very small amount of freezes on my PS4 over the last two years and have played a ton of hours on it. All in all I still do enjoy this purchase and it is nice to play Skate and RDR again as the Xbox One is backwards compatible with some games. If choosing between one console or the other I would chose the PS4 due to reliability at this point however there are pros and cons to having one or the other.

    use for gaming and entertainment, including 4K BluRay. it's also a stylish device that fits in with any decor. the interface is much more familiar for those using WIndows PCs, which is great. I bought this more for the 4K functionality than anything, it has more 4K capable apps than most stand-alone 4K BR players on the market. if you can make it through the somewhat clunky interface to actually watch 4K discs you'll love this interface. Just pin the "Blueray" app to your Home and you're good. take longer than most 4K players to load the video but the quality is still the same.

    They didn't reinvent the wheel here, just made it smaller. Somehow, the smaller size and different build materials make this a much better looking machine. That alone makes it nice. The lack of a huge power brick is a plus, and add in the fact that it can play 4K? I'm sold. I don't notice huge leaps and bounds in speed or processing power, but it feels more refined than the first generation. It is a very affordable 4K player that also happens to play Xbox One games. You can't go wrong! Just realize that this isn't a groundbreaking change of the previous model and I think you'll be happy!

    Well worth paying $200 or so for this. The tribe prefer to use it for media, Netflix etc and the blu ray player. Of course, there are a broad range of games so everyone can be entertained. I left it at a 4 star rating because of two things. The controllers are terribly priced. Do we really need blue tooth in a controller? I never have before. But you might. Just a thought. Secondly, the drive space this comes with might hold about 16 games or so. Not a problem for me because we don't have 16 games but some of the more intense gamers out there might need more space.

    Fun but challenging to set up accounts and games

    Wow, this is a player for all disc formats. I purchased the X-box One S in a package deal with a Sony TV for a bargain. On it, not only can my kids play all the X-box game offerings, but I can use it to play CD's and DVD's (including the new 4K HD format which I like best). Physical connecting and set-up of the unit was easy but establishing accounts, the hierarchies and other internet/gaming protocols were extremely cumbersome and time consuming. I like the design and capabilities of the new X-box product but would appreciate if Microsoft could make it much more user-friendly.

    We bought this for the children for the holiday and they love it. It's an Xbox one s so what more is there to say. One issue is that games can take hours to install and update, apparently a known Xbox flaw. I read that if you take the Xbox offline this process will go faster. For this edition the drive is 500gb, really only about 465, and a lot less once the system updates. If you plan to install more than 10 games you will want a larger drive. Apparently any usb 3.0 external drive can be configured for the Xbox to expand your storage.

    Bought for watching Blu Ray movies

    I purchased this XBOX ONE rather than a PlayStation to watch Blu Ray movies on my 4K TV. (Neither Playstation or XBOX 360, "upgrade" in this fashion) I wasn't interested in the games per se but they work fine. In order to watch Blu Ray movies, I had to download an app on the XBox which still needs tweeking. (It is Microsoft after all) but lo and behold no "blue screen of death." I haven't tried an actual 4K movie on this 4K TV but once one becomes available that I would be interested in, I will purchase and update the review.

    Pretty good upgrade over the original Xbox One

    I purchased this console to replace an original xbox one. The xbox one s is great upgrade over the original. Its smaller, plays 4K content, and most of all no power brick. To be honest, I did not keep this bundle because I am not a Minecraft fan and another xbox one s bundle went on sale for the same price during the week of E3. I exchanged this bundle for the 500 GB Battlefield 1 bundle. After having an Xbox One S for a month, I am enjoying the Xbox One S and having no problems with it so far.

    I purchased the XboxOneS(Slim), right after Christmas, and I can say it was a great buy! I upgraded from the original Xbox One, and love the New console better. The XboxOneS to me, is faster, can do so much more, and is even better for the whole family. With not only blue ray DVD, but 4K streaming on Netflix and movies. The only reason I give it four stars is just for the time it takes to download games onto the console; the XboxOneS downloads games a little faster, but still takes a little time. Great buy!

    Seems good so far. Console is nice and quiet, navigation is fast, like the new home layout. Only complaint is that they took away the ability to put in a disc and play. Everything needs an internet update... I live in an area where they only internet available is SLOW. Like .4 Mbps slow, so getting a new game is quite a frustrating wait. Madden 17 took days to download all the updates. Microsoft you could have done better letting this run in the background and allowing us to play what's on the disc.

    Good 4K Player

    Bought this as a 4K player and my old one was breaking. It is thinner than my other Xbox but does not handle games any better than that. The quality of the games are not noticeably different. All in all I would wait for the Scorpio, which will be out later this year. I love Xbox and do not regret this one. Make sure to buy a external hard drive to save your games on. You can get a 5TB external drive for $110 or less, which you will save a lot of money vs buying the 1TB or 2TB xbox S.

    We wanted to upgrade our current Blu-Ray player to include newer features. Sales clerk pointed out that the XBox One (on sale) provides all the same features of the upgraded player (4K, HD, etc), for about the same price. Awesome. Our current XBox360 needed upgrading, but felt that the DVD player upgrade was more important. But now there is one less piece of equipment, to get all the features we want in a player, with the addition of a newer game console as well. Brilliant!!

    I bought this for my nephew-in-law and it crashed the very next day, with Microsoft's recommend troubleshooting not helping one bit. The console wouldn't even turn on anymore. Best Buy made the exchange easy and fast. The replacement has been running smoothly for 5 months now. Although I am not a fan of Xbox myself, I am glad to report that this product was worth the investment and I am happy that the support from both companies was professional and friendly.

    My son bought this with Birthday money he got. He already had the xbox 360. He wanted to upgrade. The only thing most of the games he played were not compatible. If it were for me I would not have purchased. He ended up having to buy a game he had recently bought fir the 360 because it was not compatible. He seems happy with it, though. Although he cannot play with friends that do not have xbix one. They have to be in the same system for xbox live.

    I puchased this as a Christmas gift for my children. I was fortunate enough to get it for $229.99. (Deal of the Day) I ordered it online and picked it up in my local store the next day. My children love their new gaming console. I love that I am able to set parental controls to match the age of my children. Only complaint is the free Minecraft downloads included with the console are not the same as the full version. My children couldn't save their progress.

    I didn't know about any free setup that I later got an email about so there is that. It is white and would have taken black instead but no matter it works just as well as my previous Day One Xbone. Nothing special about it, a little smaller, the new controller has a 3.5mm jack that the 1st gen did not have. My previous went up in smoke and I did not want to wait for too long for the X to come out otherwise that is what I would have done.
