This will not download the Xbox system update....
on January 29, 2014
So I had a 120Gb HDD before I ordered this "250GB Hard Disk Drive for Xbox 360" and during the transfer process I noticed that some data that was transferred to this hard drive was corrupt. So I'm thinking not a big deal? Well, I try downloading the Xbox system update and it would download a portion then restart this process 2 or 3 times. An error message would pop up saying that it couldn't download the update. So I reached Xbox Support and went over various steps I.e. clearing the system cache and removing the hard drive and putting it back in. So support recommended that I try removing the hard drive to see if it was a "hard drive failure" and what do you know? I had access to Xbox LIVE without this hard drive.
My recommendation: Stick with buying original Xbox accessories such as a hard drive from Microsoft. Yes, it will be more expensive instead of buying from a 3rd party like JacobsParts however I have had minimal problems with Microsoft products. A 250Gb hard drive will probably cost over $100 for a new one but at least when you get the hard drive you know pretty well that it will work. I plan on returning this hard drive and buying a new hard drive from Microsoft. Very disappointed.
Pros: - Cheap price for the amount of storage
Cons: - Does Not Work!
