This review is from: 120GB Internal Slim Hard Disk Drive for XBOX 360 (Video Game)
This was exactly what I needed for my Xbox. I didn't want to spend 100 dollars on a microsoft 250 gb memory because I really didn't need that much, I just needed more than the 4gb the console had. I was a little worried when I order this Hard Drive because I thought it wasn't going to work or I was never going to get it, but after like a month or something like that I received it in the mail. It was really easy to install and it worked great. The only weird thing is that my xbox said there was like 105 gbs free when it was new and it should've had 120...i dont know why that happened but I really don't care because I'm good with 100 more gbs and it only cost me 50 bucks.

Surprised no one has mentioned this yet, but generally the file system on a drive takes up a certain amount of space even if nothing else in terms of "content" is actually on it.
A 120 gb drive is really only about 105-110 gb after they format it with the proper file system for a computer, console, whatever. Same goes for a 320 gb drive. You'll probably end up with 290-300 gb free w/o putting anything else on it.
Just some FYI, I'm a computer geek :)
