    "So simple to use...Great for my son...This product is just a seagate external hard drive with an xbox logo and an increased price tag... it works well (reason for three star) but the price was $20 more just because it has xbox logo on it... my suggestion is get a regular external hard drive and connect that and save $20 ... I was late to obtain that knowledge and found out after it was too late...I received my Seagate - 2TB External USB 3.0 Hard Drive for Xbox One and Xbox 360 about 3 weeks ago and I couldn't be happier with my purchase, I went from having to constantly delete games in order to download new ones and now I can download games and not worry about space"
