I purchased this memory card to move my profile and saved games from one Xbox 360 to a newer one, and it worked perfectly. The process of copying data from the hard drive to the memory card is simple and fast, and I may keep the card as a backup in case something happens to our new Xbox in the future.

4/5 stars, however, because I consider this product to be far overpriced for what it is. Since the Xbox 360 has standard USB ports, the only thing preventing you from using a standard USB drive (flash or hard drive) to backup your data is the built-in limitations of the Xbox itself. This feels unfair, as the only reason I can think for not allowing the use of USB drives for storage was to force people to buy overpriced memory cards and hard drives.

This is just an inconvenience, and I can't complain too much since I did buy one. If you need a way to backup your save games, or if you are buying a newer machine and want to transfer your data, this is the best way to go, and I do recommend buying one for that purpose.

This is a great product and very easy to use. I game over at a friend's house alot and it was irritating having to recover my gamertag everytime. The process takes 20-30 min. With the MU you can put your profile on it and load it up instantly. Unfortunately it's way overpriced for a 512mb memory card. I was happy to find a copy of Worms on mine though which justifies a little bit of the price I suppose.

A lot of people seem to complain that you can't transfer all your saves onto it. I had the same problem with Eternal Sonata. Fortunately, there is an easy solution. Instead of trying to Copy/Move the files in the data management area on the console (which works for most games). Load your game. When you're in the game, save. When prompted to pick a location to save to, select the MU instead of the Hard Drive. I just loaded up my Eternal Sonata game, and went to the save point and chose the MU instead and it worked perfectly.

I recommend this for anyone who spends time gaming on other's systems, as being able to take your tag with you and load it instantly on anyone's machine is a welcome respite from tag recovering. I gave it a 4 out of 5 because it does everything it's supposed to do, and does it well. Unfortunately though, the price is too high.

BUYER BEWARE! THIS DOES NOT WORK WITH THE NEW XBOX 360! The new Xbox 360 does not have a slot for the Xbox 360 Memory Unit. It just uses USB flash cards instead. But if you have the old one, then this memory unit works fine.

This larger MU is key for storing your profile and keeping difficult-to-replace game saves. Since the 360 dies quite often and needs to be replaced (by a very good warranty), this device removes the need to replace, for a example, an entire Forza2 garage.

I originally purchased this MU because I have multiple Xboxes and was tired of having to recover my profile every time I changed rooms. It was a poor product to begin with because of the 512MB limit and the restrictions that caused third-party MUs to not work. With the latest update to the Xbox dashboard it is an even worse option. You can now use USB thumb drives (limited to 16GB) instead of memory cards. This is a much better option for a few reasons:

1. At the 16GB limit, you have 32 times as much space to save data to.
2. You probably already have a thumb drive sitting around that is larger than 512MB.
3. If you don't have a large thumb drive around, they are much cheaper per MB than the proprietary card.
4. When schizophrenic MS decides to disable support for thumb drives (or enables external HDs), you will still have a thumb drive that is useful for other things.

Skip this and use a thumb drive.

Great for backing up profiles and important game saves. I bought this for my son so he had a backup when his game saves were accidently overwritten on the hard drive. Also, he has the portability to take his game saves over to a friend's house. Works great but pricey when compared to similar products.

It made a simple process of moving everything over to my new larger hard drive on my second Xbox 360. The process was easy, but I wish it held more data. For the price, this small sized storage device should be larger. But that's Micro$oft for ya. What ya gonna do?

The product works for me. I just copied every saved game from one hard drive to the Memory Unit and then took it in the other room and moved the data from the memory unit to the new, larger hard drive on my second 360. It took hours and several trips to transfer my old 10GB hard drive. A slow, but easy process.

Now, I have my non-Xbox Live gamer tags on the memory unit. Yes, when playing under those tags I will need the memory unit, but I can play my games in either room now without having to remove the hard drives. I simply take the memory unit and the game disc to the other machine. I do not play on Live.

UPDATE Nov. 2010: You can now use a regular thumb drive. Microsoft did an update awhile back that makes it possible to use a thumb drive in the usb port as an external storage device instead of this overpriced, undersized proprietary thing. Although, I have yet to try the thumb drive thing yet.
