3.0 out of 5 stars Misleading Storage Capacity February 18, 2006
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
PROS:

- Owning a HDD allows you to download patches from Xbox Live to play original xboox games.

- Download game demos from Xbox Live Marketplace

- More storage than a memory card

CONS

- 20 GB* is actually 13GB. For some reason, MS has 7 GBs reserved on the HDD.

- 13 GB isnt very much when you consider game demos average about .5 GB to 1GB in size. If you're going to be downloading patches and add-ons for your games, as well as demos, that 13GB of storage is going to fill up sooner than you think.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must-Have for XBox 360 Systems December 3, 2005
Durability: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Educational: 5.0 out of 5 stars    Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If you've got a base XBox 360 core unit, you really need to find yourself a hard drive. The hard drive lets you save music, store games, download content, and even play old XBox games.

In the original XBox, every XBox unit had a built in hard drive. This was inconvenient for several reasons. First, there were people who never used it, but who had to pay for it anyway. Next, if your XBox died, it was a royal pain because the hard drive wasn't removable.

You could try to move items off your hard drive onto memory units, but many save games were simply too large to fit on a memory unit.

The XBox 360 has a great improvement - you can buy the XBox 360 with or without the hard drive. You can even buy the hard drive separate if you want to upgrade your XBox 360 later on. If your hard drive fries, you don't have to get an entire new XBox 360, you just buy a new hard drive. If your XBox 360 fries, you don't lose your information, you simply pop out the hard drive and plug it into a new XBox 360 unit.

The XBox 360 hard drive lets you download content from XBox Live onto it - this can include new maps for games, new levels, even songs and videos. You can store your own CDs on the unit, which is fantastic for playing your own soundtracks during games.

It even comes with a free copy of Hexic HD - a tetris-like game that is really quite addictive. You find it under the 'Xbox Live Arcade' menu choice. You don't need XBox Live to play it - it's fully playable when you are off line.

This really is a must-have for any XBox 360 gamer - highly recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for 360 owners.... January 19, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The 20GB hard drive is a must have if you own a 360. Besides saving a ton of music on it, you need it to save your games you play. You also need the hard drive if you want to play your old xbox games (along with having internet connection to download the emulator for the old games). Besides that, when you download Xbox live arcade games (some are just awesome and there are more great games being added) you need the hard drive to store it on.

It is also removable so if a buddy has a 360 you don't have to bring your system over, just the hard drive to access your content. One draw back about the hard drive is that you will only have about 13 GB that is usable, the other GB's are used for running the system etc etc. Which when you think about it isn't that much storage when your have a ton of game saves and download new Xbox live arcade games on...hopefully Microsoft will have bigger hard drives soon....

3.0 out of 5 stars way too expensive March 6, 2007
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This thing works fine, is small, convenient, detachable. There are 3 problems I have:

1) too little memory and the 360 OS/dashboard takes up a ton of space.

2) overpriced for the amount of storage you get. you can find a 250GB+ external USB hard drive for this price or less. the price simply doesn't make sense.

3) I would have appreciated a USB port (as on an external USB hard drive) so I could hook it up to my PC to transfer files.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Must Have February 21, 2006
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I purchased the hard drive for my son's Xbox 360. It works perfect. You definitely need a hard drive if you own a 360. You can download all these cool games.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good for what I use it for... January 21, 2008
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
but it's probably not a perfect fit for everyone.
I bought the core Xbox 360 and worked off a memory card for a few months until my dad bought me the 20GB hard drive. So far, it's worked very well for me. I play a lot of RPGs, especially Oblivion, which takes up a fairly nice chunk of space for each save game. My dad and I also shared the same hard drive while I was at school. He used my Xbox when I wasn't home but my saves were still there from over the summer. So, we had two people playing and saving off the same hard drive, my dad was playing games like GRAW 1 and 2, Halo 2 and 3, and several others he rented or borrowed. I was playing Oblivion, Mass Effect, Assassins Creed, and Gears of War. The hard drive works great. It's never given me a problem and I've never had to delete games to have more room to save.
That being said, I don't use X-box Live. I don't download music, add ons, or demos. I don't put anything on my hard drive other than game saves and the occasional expansion pack upgrade, Oblivion: Game of the Year being the only one I have so far. If you're doing that I suggest spending $70 more on a bigger hard drive or you'll be very disappointed, fairly quickly. If it's in your budget to spend the extra money on the larger one then get it, you won't be disappointed in having the extra space, especially if you download extra content. But, having said that, the 20GB does what it's supposed to. I've never had it lose any of my saved content or purge any games or freeze on me (knock on wood) and that's what I expect out of the product. It delivers.
