5.0 out of 5 stars Great product at a great price!, December 20, 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: 20G HDD Hard Disk Drive for Microsoft Xbox 360 S Slim (Accessory)
When reading other reviews from Uneducated reviewers please bear in mind it is NORMAL for ANY 360 hard drive to be 6-8GB under space on the listed GB amount as it reserves space for the operating system (and usually comes with a Demo or two) so please ignore that ignorant comment from anyone who does not know a thing about how the 360 functions.

That being said this drive functions PERFECTLY i bought it to replace my now dead out of warranty slim HD for a cheap fix and it works 100% flawlessly the only thing different about it i noticed is the name of the drive in system settings is in Japanese characters but it has no effect upon the drive. The total price is this drive is perfect for a quick replacement (or a small drive if you got a slim without a HD)

20G HDD Hard Disk Drive for Microsoft Xbox 360 S Slim

Meltory says:
Correction, the loss of space on the hard drive is not due to the operating system as this is stored in the internal memory of the Xbox but is due to bit loss which is relevant to all hard drives Xbox 360 related or not. This is related to how computers interprets memory (binary) versus how humans read it (decimal) for this reason you will always have about 7% loss on the hard drive which in this case results in a hard drive of about 14GB.

6gb is not 7% of 20gb. It's due to both "bit loss" and the 360 reserving space on the hard drive for it's use for various things including emulating old Xbox games and system cache. See the following link: support.microsoft. com/kb/911593
