5.0 out of 5 stars 250 glorious gigs!!!! April 7, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Item arrived a day early which was excellent. Packaged nice and kept quite secure in box. Instructions for transferring all my stuff from 120 gb hdd to the 250 couldn't have been simpler. I would reccomend this product to anybody with an expanding game collection who would like to install games on their hard drive. The reason i do it is to prevent the system from overheating and getting a RED RING. My system runs quieter now and my load times have been cut drastically and my stystem overall performs much better. 5 stars all the way.

5.0 out of 5 stars More storage...thank you! March 23, 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Is it a little expensive? Sure. However its cheaper than the old 120 gig hard drives were so MS has at least come down on their $ to gig ratio.

This thing is exactly what I needed. I download alot of tv shows from Xbox Live. I also download a ton of Xbox Live Arcade Games, a lot of downloadable content to expand my games, and I also purchase full games. My 120 gig hd was always full. That wont be an issue now. This couldnt have come at a better time. Lots of big releases from last year are now getting lots of new content and that takes storage. If your a serious gamer and do a lot of downloading buy this NOW!

5.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced HDD that is quick and painless to install March 31, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
As much as I'd like to give this product a lower rating because of price, I'm not going to do so because I'm strictly rating the product.

Pros:
More storage for gamers like me who like to install their games to their hdd.
Won't get you banned from xbox live. Not too long ago, there was a massive ban for people using non-microsoft hard drives.
The instructions on transferring data and installing the new hdd were quick and easy.

Cons:
Only one I can think of is price.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not really a Microsoft product June 26, 2010

DO NOT BUY FROM THIS COMPANY (G Dreamer) - the drive they sent me is NOT an authentic Microsoft product. It was not packaged in a microsoft materials, but a cardboard box from China. Buyer beware with this company - they are a fraud. I am returning my drive today for a refund and I will go to Best Buy and pay full retail for a real product. Amazon should block them from the site.

It is what it is, its a proprietary drive for your Xbox360 and I am quite happy they moved up to 250gb from 120gb for the same price point. Ipods also have proprietary hard drives at a cost per GB that is much more than what an off the shelf external would be. If you don't want to buy it, then don't buy it, but the product itself is fine. You also have the choice to not play Xbox360 and save the reviews from your whining - you can instead put on some camo while running around your yard with your hand as a gun and make pewpew sounds all while on your mobile harassing your friends that you have more skillz than them.

P.S the Dashboard update coming in the spring to allow USB storage will allow 2 3rd party devices up to 16GB a piece. So its not like you can just go plug in a WD once the dashboard update is in. 40 bucks for 16 GB is better than 50 for 512MB so that's a win

5.0 out of 5 stars Much Needed Upgrade!!! September 11, 2010
By Alex
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I needed to upgrade my Xbox since I have the first generation 360 with the 20GB Drive which was full. I purchased this drive and it came with the transfer kit and easy to follow instructions. I now have the space to download all my add ons (especially for Mass Effect 2 another great game I been addicted to) Only buy authentic Microsoft XBOX drives since the knockoffs will NOT work with original xbox games. Also note you will not be able to use all 250GB for storage since some GBs are for system resources you will see like 237 if I remember correctly. This is still a huge improvement for me compared to the 15GBs I could use before.

1.0 out of 5 stars Buyer Beware January 15, 2011
Verified Purchase
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I ordered this item for 79.99 which seemed like a good deal as it is advertised as a retail version of the hard drive including the transfer hardware. Upon delivery, I was sent an email stating that the transfer cables are not included with the hard drive. When I checked my mail, grabbed the package, and then opened it, sure enough no cables. This seller and/or Amazon is falsely advertising the product. Buy from someone who can guarantee you get the actual retail version. After looking at this HD, I'm not even sure it's new as there are scuffs on the name plate.
