Installation was a breeze. On the bottom of the Xbox is a little switch you pull toward yourself and the vent opens up to reveal a slot for the drive. Slide the drive in and you're in business. Make sure you do this while the Xbox is off of course.
Before purchasing this drive I used to switch in and out USB Sticks which worked for about a month until I realized no matter how big the stick you put in, Xbox limits each USB Stick to 32GB and you can only use two at a time. I found myself going to the store dropping $30 bucks a pop each time I bought a USB stick and the thought occurred to check and see how much a drive would be from Xbox themselves. In retrospect I wish I had bought the drive straight away because the hundred dollars it cost me on Amazon is about two-thirds less the cost of all those USB Sticks I went and bought.
Lastly I should mention as I myself was shopping for a drive I noticed other companies offered similar drives for thirty dollars cheaper or so. My recommendation would be NOT to go that way. A bad drive can kill an Xbox faster than a bullet. My slim I owned before fell victim to a corrupted drive. However long its been since I bought the newest model 360 its been a tank with no issues and adding the drive to the mix about a month ago its a perfect system. Don't cheap out on the drive for your system as its the brain of the machine and most important component if you ask me. That said, always go with the original manufacturer. That's what I did and couldn’t be happier. I ordered the drive on a Sunday and plugged it in my machine Tuesday. Well worth the $100.
Installation was easy but I did have to watch a clip how to open the side. That little lever blends in perfect. Very easy to pull old one out and slide the new hard drive in. I had an older transfer cable for the original hard drives which was NOT compatible. So I had to spend an extra $20 to get one. The new cable is compatible with old xbox hard drives and the slim hard drives.
Since transferring old files will take several hours, I left and came back later to see it hadn't finished. Apparently hexic came installed on the hard drive, because it was duplicate files, it prompted if I wanted to overwrite. I probably wasted 6 hours waiting for it to finish because it stopped to wait for my answer. Just FYI, don't leave it run overnight and think it will finish. You might be prompted at least once, what to do with duplicate content.
Will buy again if I need another one.
