This WD 500GB Gaming Drive Accelerated for Xbox One, was packed in a good, cardboard box with a print that is very descriptive, all I needed to know was found easily all around the box in such a neat and organized design. The packaging was eye catching specially that they have designed with XBOX theme in mind and had every detail printed one the box about this SSD, it was very easy to open. Everything was well packaged, no Styrofoam or clam-shell plastic to fight with, which is always a plus. It arrived in perfect condition.
In the box:
inside the box you're gonna find warranty information and a product guide and The SSD
Build Quality (Rating 5/5):
It doesn't feel cheap, it feels very expensive and premium, The body is made from what it seems a very durable high quality plastic, with white body and black rubber all around.
Design (Rating 4/5):
It has a nice visually appealing black on white with rubber edges and Xbox like design with one USB A cable tucked under it.
This is a portable SSD Drive that is leaning towards gaming but you can just use it anywhere like a regular portable SSD with laptops or even with PS4 not just XBOX exclusive.
I'm in love with this SSD, it is so tiny, and I love that it has the usb cable tucked inside of it, no more wondering around your bag looking for that annoying usb cable. I usually play heavy games, like call of duty, red dead redemption 2 etc.. So I always require a fast and reliable SSD to load faster the game with me and cut through those annoying long loading screen time, and I honestly was blown away by the form factor and the speed of this drive.
This is by far one of the toughest Western Digital 500GB Gaming Drive, I've had to date, it's drop resistance thanks to its shock absorbing rubber edges and no moving parts unlike traditional hard disks, helps keep the content safe from bumps and shakes and with an SSD drive, it's up to triple as fast as most portable hard drives, delivers speeds up to 412MB/s read and 225MB/s write. I tested it on Macbook Pro 15' 2019 through the Belkin Thunderbolt 3 Dock Pro's USB 3.1 port, with Disk Speed Test from "Blackmagicdesign".
You can also use it with mac and pc too, as it comes formatted ExFAT for compatibility with PC and Mac out of the box, also it comes with WD Discovery Software which helps you get the most out of this SSD, like setting a backup plan with WD Backup or importing content from popular social media and cloud storage platforms.
Tip: If you intend to use it as a backup drive with MAC's time machine, you'll need to reformat it to HFS+J, but it will remove compatibility with windows, and in case you lost the WD Discovery installation file, you can re download it again from support.wd.com
The 2 major things I don't like, first is that if the cable died or something happened to it, it can't be replaced and the second thing is the capacity, now a days most games releases are 100+ GB, Call of duty modern warfare was 128GB and Red dead redemption is 175 GB, so it would probably take 3-5 games of AAA games, But other than that, it's great for travel and every day use, I highly recommend it, for about $99, it's an good deal.
- Beautiful Xbox colors and design.
- Strong build quality.
- Very good shock proof rubber ridges.
- Super fast.
- Very good price.
- Very gift able.
- Very lightweight.
- Very short cable
- Cable built in, can't be replaced.
- Sometimes it throttles.
- Low capacity, for game sizes nowadays.
Amazing build and very fast reading and writing speeds, for the price I highly recommend it, it's built very well, and feels premium, it's perfect for XBOX and even as a regular SSD.

With an Xbone that came stock with a 500gb HDD, this new SSD is a must. Not only will your storage double with another 500gb, your games WILL absolutely load faster as this hard rive is a solid state driving. With SSDs, there aren't moving components, unlike the HDD.
Installation and formatting was quick and easy. I would highly recommend putting your largest games on here and keeping smaller games on your HDD (If you still have it).
A USB cable is attached to the drive, and tucks right inside of it. Although that prevents the cable from being misplaced, it makes me a little nervous. If the cable were to get damaged in some way, it's not going to be an easy fix.
My son said that his game load times improved a lot with this device. This also comes in a 1TB version, which is double the capacity. Depending on your game collection, that might be a better choice.
