If you are planning to purchase this drive with the intention of playing your old xbox games on your shiny new 360 slim, BEWARE! This drive, like many of the other third party xbox hard drives, does not have a special partition which contains the xbox emulator software. If you try to play an original xbox game you will get a message that says "The game could not start. Please download the game again."

The only way to restore this capability would be to connect the drive to a PC and use some xbox hacking program to restore "partition 2", which contains the emulator.
If you can't be bothered, then you should probably just spend the extra cash and get the official Microsoft version.

Other than this flaw, however, this drive works perfectly. You'll be able to install xbox 360 games, download music/movies and do whatever else you like. Contrary to some statements, installing a third party drive is not a "mod" and will not get you banned from xbox live.

If you already own the 4Gb version and don't mind getting a little involved, this might be a good way to save some money in the upgrade. If you have the opportunity though, I would recommend skipping the trouble and just purchasing the 250Gb xbox in the first place

I bought this for my son's Xbox 360 Slim; it's perfect and so much cheaper than Microsoft's hard drive. Shipping was quick and HDD was in perfect condition when it arrived.

When after buying this product i was a bit skeptic because I have been reading stories on the web about these generic hard drives and possibility of Xbox Live ban. But when I did get it and actually put it in my xbox it was perfect. I think the stories that i read where full of s***.Although I did pay for the full 120gb but it only displayed 106. Not sure where the other 14gb went. But still, it works just as if you where to buy an official drive. I can now download much more xbox live content and have the full experience while playing other xbox games. The shipping was blazing fast. It shipped the same day i bought it.

No time wasted.
5 Stars.

We bought a 4gb slim xbox360 and bought this to use as the hard drive. It works perfectly and easy installation.

We had to purchase this for my son when he received Battlefield 4 as a gift and then found out you could not play it on the xbox 360 4g. This was received within three days of ordering. It was easy to install and works just as well as this xbox hard drive that is three times the cost. I would definitely recommend.

My son had this product for barely over a month and the hard drive went bad. Guess what? Can't return it because it's past the 30 day return policy. If you want to waste your money, then I suggest you get this piece of crap product!

Dropped it in the xbox and works as original Hard Disk. You have to open a small latch on the side of the xbox and drop it in.

Just got this hard drive today, fit right into my xbox and it was recognized by my xbox no problem. I had a couple memory sticks I wanted to transfer onto the hard drive to consolidate so I selected the hard drive and hit transfer, started to transfer over no problem. I let it finish and shut it down, start it up a little later and not only is my profile gone but so is every save file I had on my system. Now the hard drive doesn't show anything on it and gives an error if I try to download anything to it.

To say im furious with the whole situation is an understatement. To have a defective item is one thing, but this hard drive just destroyed every save file I had on my xbox. Also the way it was packaged was terrible, the box had tape wrapped around it and it was shoved in a thing padded envelope.

Do not buy anything from this company you will regret it.

Considering the MS one's price, this is a great choice unless you play original xbox games on 360. This doesn't allow to play xbox games but this is a great hard drive because it is much cheaper.

Saw numerous reviews on this product and like most consumers I was skeptical. But what a change of mind. Work perfectly well. Was not sure if a 'generic' hard drive would be good. Was told by a retailer it was best to go ahead and buy the 'Microsoft one'. That it would work better. Well, no way. This hard drive from Jacobs Labs works just great. And let me tell you about the shipping. Received the product 2 days BEFORE order stated that I would get it. I AM extremely happy. I would definitely recommend this product to everyone.
