Benefits of an Xbox One external hard drive.
If you keep a large library of Xbox One games, you know that you can run into storage issues. Games are so complicated these days that they take up quite a bit of space. And if your Xbox One console came with only 500GB of storage, you might find yourself running out of room for your collection quickly. Even 1TB can prove to be too small.
Fortunately, an external drive can easily double, triple, or more than quadruple what you currently have. Common Xbox One external hard drives give you up to 5TB of additional storage space, and there are even models with 10TB, 11TB and 12TB if you want truly huge storage capacity.
In addition to allowing space for more video games, the surplus Xbox One storage can also increase performance. You cannot replace or upgrade internal drives without voiding your warranty, but an external hard drive can have faster speeds while also freeing up internal space to allow games to load faster.
Add an Xbox One hard drive to your video game setup.
Installation could not be easier. Most Xbox One hard drives will connect to your system using a USB 3.0. When selecting your external storage for Xbox One, you will want to consider the capacity, speed, and price. Capacity is what allows you to store a lot of games. Speed impacts how quickly your game will load. And price generally goes up as both speed and capacity increase.
The Xbox One has a 16TB limit for external storage, but that is far beyond what you will likely need or wish to buy. Entry-level hard drives of 1TB and 2TB will give your system a clear boost at a very reasonable price. Before long, you’ll enjoy Xbox One gaming like never before. Don’t forget to update your Xbox One accessories as needed and check that your display settings are at the highest quality to get the most out of your enhanced gaming experience.
