I will update this review in the future if any cons arise.
Two things to know about this device when using it with the Xbox one. When using the hard drive for the first time, make sure you have your Xbox one turned on first and that you are logged on to your account. If you have the hard drive plugged in when turning on the Xbox one (for the first time), it will not recognize the drive. It didn't work for me. After 10 minutes of useless research and cursing, I was about to pack it up and send it back to Amazon. So I decided one last try..... I unplugged it, turned on my Xbox one, logged into my account and then I plugged the hard drive in and VICTORY! The XB1 recognized the drive and two quick clicks later, it was ready to go.
Second, after moving 12 games over to the hard drive, I turned off the XB1. Next day when I turned on my XB1 with the hard drive still plugged in, there was nothing on my hard drive (external). It showed that I had items saved onto the drive but, I could not see any games. First thought, another worthless hard drive! But, before I threw it against the wall (not really) I unplugged hard drive and plugged it back into the XB1 and everything was there. So, ever since this issue, I have unplugged the hard drive and plugged it back in after turning on the XB1. Maybe I had a glitch but, up to you.
Moving along now....
I bought mine for $81 (brand new) from Amazon. I was lucky. Right now, it is going for $119. It says 2GB but, after I formatted it for the XB1 and ran it for the first time, it has 1.8TB for actual use. Its power source is the device it is plugged in too. It appears to be sturdy and well made. I like the tiny little cushions on the bottom of the hard drive that prevents it from sliding around. It comes with a 3.0 usb type-A/micro type-b cable. This cable is SHORT and very thin. The end that goes into the hard drive, in my opinion, is a little unstable for me (it felt like it would come out it you it around). There is a solution for this issue but, you will have to pay extra cash. After doing much research on portable hard drives, a lot of folks have had this issue (not only on Amazon but, elsewhere). So, I bought a two-pack, from Cable Matters, of 3.0 usb type-A/micro-b cables. They are 3 feet long, THICKER and they fit into the hard drive and XB1 like they SHOULD be, SNUG. This will save you time. Why? Because you will end up talking to the Toshiba and requesting for another cable. In my opinion.
Games being moved from the internal hard drive to the external hard drive will vary in the time it takes to move it. The largest game moved was 48.8 GB and it took just under 14 minutes. Moving games back is slightly faster. As for playing games from the external hard drive, there might be a quicker load time as compared to the internal drive but, as far as I am concerned, it works. The only thing I have not done is to download a game from Microsoft directly onto my external drive. I haven't set up that option yet. Last thing when it comes to downloads, transfers, etc. I downloaded Assassin's Creed IV: Black Flag (free) and it took 3 hours. Transfer to the external from the internal took 7 minutes plus.
My rating it 4 may or may not change over the course of this device. No electronic device gets a 5-star or a 1-star rating. 5-star, to me, means that it is perfect, no such thing. 1-star means it dies tomorrow or within a year.
Overall, great, for now as it pertains to the XB1. The company says it is compatible with Windows 7, 8, 8.1. Well, Windows 10 is about to be released and I will wait before I buy an external hard drive as a back-up. This is a very, very quite external hard drive, simple as that. You want noise? The power source for XB1 is louder, HOURS after it has not been in use. Go figure. As of now, it is a great external hard drive for the XB1 (minus the cable. Trust me, buy the cable I mentioned earlier or something similar. A great or good sturdy cable makes all the difference in the world).
Last words, my review will change if the drive has issues. I don't plan on moving mine around unless it is to be cleaned. I also, DO NOT, work for Toshiba, Amazon, Microsoft, Cable Matters, any blog site, etc. I am just a consumer who was looking for an external hard drive for my XB1. I DO NOT KNOW how this device will work on a laptop, computer, PS4 or mobile phone. That will be up to you.
PS - I have owned this item for less then a week and it was bought through Amazon.
PSS - Just because a device says 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, etc. IT DOES NOT MEAN IT HAS THAT AMOUNT OF SPACE AVAILABLE! Why? Software that comes with the device. This is for the folks who always have this complaint..... Avoid this issue and RESEARCH BEFORE BUYING!
November 2017 Update: Be careful with the cable on these HDs as they are delicate and can go bad. They are the first to go, get a back up cable which on Amazon are sturdier than the original.
