5 out of 5 stars   XBox One Storage
By XBox User in FL (Florida) January 16, 2015
Review submitted for Western Digital My Passport Ultra 2TB USB 3.0 Portable Hard Drive - WDBMWV0020BBK-NESN (Black) (WDBMWV0020BBK)
Verified Reviewer
Pros: More than quadrupled the storage on my XBox One. Plenty of room for games. Easy to install and copy installed games over from internal drive using XBox One menu. No apparent difference in speed or performance from internal storage.
Cons: None yet
Other Comments: XBox One comes with a tiny 500 GB internal HDD; tiny when you consider it holds the OS and all games must be installed on the HDD. The internal drive filled up about 80% with just 5 games. Why Microsoft didn't build these things with at least 2 TB HDD's and use their economy of scale to pass on savings to us is a mystery, but this drive is an economical and efficient solution to increase storage.
