Xbox 1 with 1tb

Xbox 1 with 1tb DEFAULT

Updated December 3,

When you are trying to purchase many types of electronics finding the model that meets your needs the best isn’t always a straightforward process. Too often there isn’t a one size fits all option, which leaves you having to sort through all the different available options and features as you figure out which ones are most important to you. Unfortunately, buying an Xbox One console isn’t much different, but we have you covered. Let us help simplify things and lead you through this technological wilderness of video game consoles.

Microsoft made the following versions of the Xbox One console:

Xbox One S 

The Xbox One S was the most popular version of the Xbox console and comes with a 1TB hard drive. Microsoft is still making the Xbox One S. However, you might see some older versions of this console still out there and available for purchase. Over the course of time, the hard drives on Xbox One S consoles came in GB, 1TB (current option), and 2TB sizes.

Xbox One S All-Digital Edition

The Xbox One S All-Digital Edition is an excellent option for people who prefer buying digital copies of their games and would rather not have a bunch of game discs cluttering up their home. With a 1TB hard drive the All-Digital Edition was priced less than the Xbox One S since it didn’t have an included optical drive.  However, Microsoft stopped producing the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition in You can still find it available for purchase in new, used, and refurbished options.

Xbox One X

The Xbox One X is the most powerful version of the Xbox One console that Microsoft released and comes with a 1TB hard drive. Unfortunately, Microsoft stopped production on the Xbox One X in However, the good news is that you can still find buy Xbox One X with new, used, and refurbished options available for purchase.

You will be able to find each of these consoles available for purchase both by itself or as part of a bundle. Other than a couple of extras that might come with some console bundles, each of these consoles come with the same basic accessories to get you up and running. So how can you decide which bundle and which version of the console are best for you or the person you are shopping for? To answer that question we need to cover a couple of the main differences between the different options you will have to choose from.

Bundles

As you just noticed most Xbox One consoles come as some sort of bundle. With a bundle, you get more than just the video game console. In addition to the console, you could also get a game, an extra controller, or other accessories. The price for everything that is included in a bundle is usually less than if you purchased everything separately.

The key to video game console bundles is to find one you like. The best part of a bundle is the fact that you are saving some money, but if you don’t like or want everything that is included in a bundle and won’t use it you are negating the money you saved by purchasing the bundle.

Xbox One S vs Xbox One S All-Digital Edition vs Xbox One X

The original Xbox One console came out in Since that time different versions have been released and the original version of the Xbox One is no longer being produced. As mentioned above, currently there is only one version of the console that is still being produced – the Xbox One S. That said, you can still find the Xbox One S, One X, and the All-Digital edition available for purchase either as new, used, or refurbished consoles.

Xbox One S

Released in the Xbox One S is more affordable than the Xbox One X. You will also notice the Xbox One S is also smaller than the Xbox One X. However, don’t let the size of the consoles determine your buying decision because you can always buy a vertical stand for either console to save space.

If you are playing your Xbox on a p television you will probably be very happy with the Xbox One S. Plus, saving money by purchasing this more budget-friendly console will help you free up money to buy some extra games or accessories right away.

In addition to streaming 4K videos on Netflix, Amazon, Hulu, Microsoft Movies & TV you can also watch 4K Blu-ray movies on the One S thanks to its optical drive, which also allows you the opportunity to play the huge library of backward compatible Xbox and original Xbox games.

Xbox One S All-Digital Edition

In Microsoft released the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition. This version of the Xbox One console is pretty much identical to the Xbox One S. The only difference is that the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition doesn’t have an optical drive.

Getting rid of the optical drive allowed the All-Digital Edition to have an even lower price than the standard Xbox One S. However, getting rid of the optical drive means that you can only buy/use digital game copies. If you are unfamiliar with the differences between digital video game copies and digital copies you might want to read our article that discusses the pros and cons of each.

Another thing you will be missing by not having an optical drive will be the Blu-ray player, which could be an inconvenience if you like to watch movies at home. However, if you already have a Blu-ray player or stream movies instead of watching them on a physical disc you probably won’t miss the Blu-ray player.

Lastly, without the optical drive, you won’t be able to take advantage of the backward compatibility that the Xbox One S offers. That said if you like the All-Digital Edition you probably aren’t the type of person who keeps piles of old games around. However, if you do want to play some classic games there is always the Xbox Game Pass Membership that will give you unlimited access to over games. You can see the games that are available through game pass here.

In the end, if you are thinking that the Xbox One S is a good choice for you, are fine with digital game copies, and don’t need a Blu-ray player the Xbox One S All-Digital Edition could be a great choice for you.

Xbox One X

As you can see from the specs shown above the most powerful version of the Xbox One console is the Xbox One X. This high-end version of the popular video game console came out in While it is a little bigger in size than its Xbox One S counterpart the Xbox One X does have a lot more under the hood.

The Xbox One X has a faster processor as well as the ability to display more detailed graphics. So not only will games load faster and have less lag, but if you are playing them on a 4K television the graphics will be noticeably better.

These improved graphics are the main reason to consider buying an Xbox One X. When playing on a 4K television you will notice that the image looks crisper with increased detail for objects in the background.

As you probably expected the Xbox One X will allow you to stream 4K videos, in addition to watching 4K Blu-ray movies – thanks to its Blu-ray drive. This optical drive also allows you to take advantage of playing all of the backward compatible Xbox and original Xbox games.

The downside of this version of the console is that it is significantly more expensive than the Xbox One S and the One S All-Digital Edition.

Which One is Best For You?

This really comes down to what type of television you plan on playing your games on. If you have a 4K television or plan on buying one in the next year or two you probably want to purchase the Xbox One X.

All games will play on both devices, but an ever-increasing number of games are being enhanced to take advantage of the improved graphics capabilities of the Xbox One X.

While you might notice some slight performance improvements, especially on newer games, when playing an Xbox One X on a p television. However, not being able to take advantage of the improved graphics makes the additional money spent on this console less worthwhile – especially if you are budget conscious.

GB vs. 1 TB vs. 2 TB

At this time Microsoft is only making Xbox One consoles with  1TB hard drives. Nonetheless, you still might find some consoles for sale with GB or 2TB hard drives at different retailers including Amazon These GB  and 2TB consoles and bundles are older models. Several of these older consoles are collector editions or part of limited edition bundles and might come with a higher price tag. If you like one of these older versions or limited/collector edition bundles there really isn’t anything the matter with them – especially if you find a good deal. However, from a price perspective, you are probably going to be better of going with one of the newer consoles. This is especially true if you have a 4K television and are considering an Xbox One X. That being said, let’s talk about the differences between the GB, 1TB, and 2TB consoles.

If you are thinking about buying a Xbox One console you are probably wondering if you should buy the Xbox One GB console, the Xbox One 1 TB console, or one of the Xbox One 2 TB consoles. The first difference you will notice between the two consoles is price. The GB version is usually around $50 more than the 1 TB version and the 2 TB version will usually you another $50 depending on what bundles you are comparing.

Storage

The thing to remember about the Xbox One (as well as the PlayStation 4) is that it downloads a HUGE amount of data. Large amounts of data gets downloaded and stored on the hard drive for both games that were purchased online as well as for games that were purchased in a store and have physical discs. This is also true as it relates to the Xbox One’s backwards compatibility with Xbox games.

Wikipedia reported that as of the GB console only has approximately GB of usable storage space on the hard drive. The remaining space is taken up by the operating system and pre-installed software, which is similar to how it would work on your home computer.

This GB version of the console is ideal for people who don’t buy a lot of games or don’t have a big library of Xbox titles. If you plan on playing more than 10 games (knowing that each game downloads a different amount of data) or have several Xbox backward compatible games that you plan on continuing to play it is possible that you will run out of storage space and will need to purchase an external hard drive. These hard drives can be $ or more. So if you know prior to buying your Xbox One that the GB version won’t give you sufficient storage you will probably be better served by spending the additional $50 and purchasing the 1 TB model.

Using the information Wikipedia provided from extremetech.com  we are able to calculate that we should have approximately GB of usable storage with the 1 TB console, which is more than twice the storage that is available on the GB console. This makes the 1 TB model is ideal for people who will be anticipating more download activity.

With the release of the Xbox One S we started seeing 2 TB consoles. Users are reporting that these 2 TB consoles have approximately TB of usable space. If you plan on getting a lot of games for your Xbox One or downloading/playing a ton of backwards compatible Xbox games onto your console getting one with a 2 TB drive can be an excellent choice.

Even with these larger amounts of available storage, it is still possible to run out of space if you download enough games to your console.  In those situations, you will eventually need to look at some of the external hard drive options.

What Happens If Your Xbox One Runs Out of Storage Space (Your Hard Drive Gets Full)?

The good news is that Microsoft will allow you to add an external hard drive to the Xbox One to expand your storage space as mentioned above.

The Xbox One’s basic requirements for storing games and apps on an external drive are:

  • Has a capacity of GB or more, and
    • Note:This was reduced from GB
  • Uses USB

Here are some  external hard drives the would work for the Xbox One:

However, if you don’t want to pay money to add an external hard drive, or want to avoid the extra clutter that an external hard drive represents, your other option would be to delete a few games from your hard drive to free up some storage space. Then when you want to play the game again later you can download the files again, but this can take a long time. The good news is that the progress that you previously made in the game will still be saved with your user account. The only inconvenience is the fact that you will have to wait for the files to download again, which depending on the size of the game can take a long time. This inconvenience will only increase the more often you have to do this.

Final Thoughts

When you are deciding on which Xbox One bundle to purchase you need to buy something that you like. It makes no sense to buy a bundle with game(s) you will never play or accessories that you will never use. You simply will not be getting as much value for your dollar in those situations.

That being said most people will be better served by buying one of the current Xbox One 1 TB bundles. Because the GB and 2TB versions are not currently being made those versions are in limited supply and are sometimes sold for a higher price than the current bundles.

The fact that you can add additional storage means that you will be fine no matter what, but if you find two bundles that you like equally and they have different sized hard drives you should think seriously about going with the larger hard drive.

Finally, and maybe most importantly, remember that when choosing between the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X consoles you need to consider what type of television you will be playing the games on. Yes, the more powerful Xbox One X will show some improved performance even when being played on a p television, but you won’t be able to fully appreciate its’ ability to display improved graphics unless you are playing it on a 4K television. For many people, the ability to play games in 4K is the main reason they consider paying the extra money to purchase the Xbox One X.

newxboxone1tbconsoleunveiledxboxonegbconsolereducedtojpg

A new Xbox One is launching next week with a slightly modified design and double the storage, putting the onus on PlayStation maker Sony to respond.

An Xbox One game console with 1TB of onboard storage will launch on June 16 in the US, Microsoft announced Tuesday. The console, which will feature twice the storage of the previous model, will also boast a matte finish across the top, rather than the half-glossy finish that previously topped the console. The 1TB Xbox One will set customers back $/AU$ For a limited time, Microsoft will also include Halo: The Master Chief Collection with the console.

A 1TB Xbox One was previously only available as part of the Call of Duty: Advanced Warfare bundled offered last fall.

Microsoft also on Tuesday announced an update to its Xbox One wireless controller. The new version, which will ship with all versions of the Xbox One, comes with a mm stereo headset jack -- a conspicuous omission from the previous version that launched with the Xbox One. The addition means users can pick whatever headset they'd like to use with the console, rather than only those that would plug into the Xbox One's micro-USB port.

The addition of GB of storage to the Xbox One is likely to be well-received among the hard-core gaming cohort that plays dozens of titles. In a world where digital game downloads are increasingly popular and even disc-based titles are downloaded to hard drives, GB gets filled up rather quickly. With 1TB of space, gamers will have more room to keep games that are several gigabytes in size on their consoles.

The launch of the 1TB console also means that the previous version of Microsoft's Xbox One, featuring GB of storage, is now cheaper. Microsoft said Tuesday that the GB Xbox One will remain at $ permanently. The console has been offered at $ as a "special" price. Its official price was previously set at $

The timing of the announcement might come as a surprise, though a brief listing on Amazon last week gave a heads-up that change was coming. New consoles or additions to product lineups are often announced at the E3 Gaming Expo. This year's edition of the event, which is one of the biggest gaming shows of the year, is scheduled to be held next week in Los Angeles.

By making the announcement a week before E3, Microsoft is firing an early salvo against Sony's PlayStation 4, which is also rumored to be getting a 1TB version. That model is expected to be announced at E3 next week.

Microsoft did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Xbox One vs. Xbox One S: Is a mid-tier upgrade worth your money?

The Xbox One S offers a sleek, compact, and 4K video-capable alternative to the original Xbox One, which has been discontinued. With multiple bundles sporting a variety of storage capacities and packed-in games, the Xbox One S is a great option for anyone looking to pick up an Xbox system for the first time. With bundles available for about $ for the 1TB version and one game, it&#;s also one of the most affordable consoles on the market today. Should you opt for the slick One S or grab a vintage Xbox One from a yard sale? Considering that the native 4K-capable, ultra-powerful Xbox One X console launched in , the answer to that question really depends on your pocket depth and your eagerness to adopt the latest and greatest tech.

And, with the Xbox Series X and Series S having just released, players who want to join the next generation might want to hold off on purchasing any form of Xbox One. What might be even more enticing to Xbox One S buyers is the Xbox Series S &#; an affordable, all-digital version of the Series X. If you are in the market for an Xbox One, however, here&#;s an in-depth comparison between the Xbox One and Xbox One S.

Blu-Ray, HDR, and new streaming features

The Xbox One S supports 4K video playback from streaming services such as Netflix, Amazon, and several others. The console also features a built-in 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray. At around $, the Xbox One S is a relative steal when compared to the price tag of some of the dedicated UHD players currently on the market, which makes it a solid purchase for individuals who currently own a 4K TV. The last-gen Xbox One accepts regular Blu-ray discs, but it can&#;t handle UHD Blu-ray or 4K streaming.

While both the Xbox One and Xbox One S play games natively at p, the Xbox One S can upscale games to 4K resolution if you have a 4K TV. That makes for a better picture than p or p, although it&#;s not as good as native 4K. The Xbox One S also has the ability to play games at p resolution, thanks to an update in April

The Xbox One S also supports HDR, or High Dynamic Range, which greatly broadens the range of displayed colors and contrast. Deeper colors and richer contrast mean more vibrant and realistic imagery. The original Xbox One does not support HDR for games or video playback. The HDR upgrade makes for a vivid in-game experience, but you must have an HDR-capable TV. That being said, a large number of games have been adding the feature, particularly first-party Microsoft releases. Games like Assassin&#;s Creed Odyssey, Forza Horizon 4, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, and Call of Duty: Black Ops 4all support HDR.

Winner: Xbox One S

Aesthetics and design

The Xbox One S is an aesthetic marvel when compared to the ancient, monolithic look of the Xbox One. Opposed to the uninspiring, cinder-block design of the Xbox One, the Xbox One S features a matte-white block on a raised black base. The Xbox One S is also capable of being positioned upright, with an upright stand accessory available for $ The original, on the other hand, can only be positioned horizontally. The Xbox One S is smaller than the Xbox One, yet still manages to house the power brick that was once an outside component of the Xbox One.

Xbox-One-S-review-9

As anyone who has ever owned an Xbox One knows, the touch-sensitive power button can be temperamental. Similarly, the controller sync button was inconveniently located. The Xbox One S addresses many of these design flaws. The front of the Xbox One S features a physical power button, controller sync button, a disc eject button, and a single USB port. If you opt for the all-digital edition, the front of the Xbox One S is solid white, without the black strip where the disc drive normally goes. The back side of the Xbox One S has two HDMI ports (one in, one out), two more USB ports, S/PDIF, and Ethernet. Both models offer an IR blaster, as well.

Winner: Xbox One S

Bye, bye Kinect. Hello, Cortana

The Xbox One S dropped the dedicated port for the Kinect. Only a handful of games utilized Kinect to begin with, making the move fairly irrelevant from a gaming standpoint. It is still possible to use the motion-sensing device with the Xbox One S using a now-discontinued adapter, though you may be having trouble finding one. However, since Kinect users will have to use one of the USB ports for the adapter, they&#;ll be down to only two USB ports, and the additional adapter requires its own power supply, unlike with the original Xbox One.

The Kinect port has been replaced with an integrated infrared blaster on the Xbox One S, allowing users to configure their Xbox One S to control devices such as their TV and A/V receiver. After several postponements, the Xbox One and One S both added support for Microsoft&#;s digital assistant, Cortana.

The assistant &#; first introduced on desktop machines with Windows 10 &#; is aimed at carrying out an array of standard tasks, and thus allows you to look up the weather, search the internet, open apps, and perform a host of other actions. At the moment, Cortana is wildly insufficient for more than the most basic functions, though the feature will likely get better as time goes on. As with any platform, trial and error is key to a harmonious relationship. Both the Xbox One and Xbox One S can use Cortana and Kinect. A recent update even lets you use Amazon Alexa on your Xbox One, as well.

Winner: Xbox One

Controller

Xbox One S

The folks at Microsoft have tried to bury all memory of the Kinect, and as such, the latest Xbox controller comes with a jack that allows you to communicate with your digital assistant via a headset. From a tactile, gaming perspective, the controller still very much feels like the controller we&#;ve all grown accustomed to, albeit with a new textured grip and an assortment of covers. The controller also comes equipped with Bluetooth, which extends its range and makes wireless gaming with Xbox Anywhere titles far easier.

Winner: Xbox One S

Compatibility

The Xbox One S supports all the games you loved on Xbox One and vice versa. It&#;s also possible for the Xbox One S to upscale older games to 4K (note that it doesn&#;t render at that resolution &#; it only upscales). Regardless, unless Xbox One owners are really chomping at the bit for increased support and video quality, there&#;s no dire need to upgrade at the moment.

Similarly, both consoles support backward compatibility for select titles, including those in the Xbox Game Pass subscription program.

Winner: Tie

Price and availability

As previously mentioned, the original Xbox One has been discontinued by Microsoft, and even the S is somewhat hard to find new. That means if you want one, you have to buy it from a vendor like GameStop, third-party sellers on Amazon, or a resale site like eBay or Craigslist. You can find an official refurbished Special Edition for around $

The Xbox One S is available in several different bundles, both from Microsoft and otherwise. From the official Microsoft store, you can find $ bundles with a 1TB Xbox One S and a select game.  You can also find a GB Xbox One S, without a bundled game, for $

Winner: Xbox One S

Conclusion

You’re not going to find a better Ultra HD Blu-ray player for the price than the one featured in the Xbox One S, so some might find upgrading worth it for that reason alone. Whether you’re buying your first gaming console or wanting a slight upgrade, the Xbox One S is an ideal choice because of its gaming options. Our initial review for the original Xbox One gave it a higher score than the Xbox One S due to the platform’s potential, but the Xbox One S is superior as far as hardware goes.

With the original Xbox One discontinued, the real question about which machine to get comes down to price. If you want to max out your gaming potential, you’ll probably want to spring for an Xbox One X with4K gaming. But if you’re on a tight budget, a pre-owned, classic Xbox One will do. If you want something in between the Xbox One X and the classic Xbox One, the Xbox One S has improved specs and impressive gaming bundles. 

But suppose you’re looking to join in the next-gen party. In that case, it’s worth considering the Xbox Series S. For the mere cost of $, this console is disc-free and bears a lot in common with the Xbox One S. Though it doesn’t display games at a 4K resolution, it does showcase the action at p. It also supports all of the next-gen games that you can get on the Series X.

Winner: Xbox One S

The best Xbox One external hard drives for

If you get the best Xbox One external hard drive for your setup now, in the year , you are still making an excellent purchase. Extra storage is always a worthwhile, though not sexy, acquisition but even more so on the last generation of consoles. And that is particularly because the Xbox game library is just massive. Stretching across multiple console generations, there's more choice than ever, and it's highly likely that Xbox One players will have a burgeoning, bursting at the seams game collection that needs to be stored somewhere, somehow.

And you're not just backing yourself up and strengthening your last-gen position: these drives on the new Xbox consoles to store the next-gen titles to shift them over to the internal SSD when you want to play them. This is way quicker than having to re-download them if you fill up the console's own SSD and have to shift things around. 

WD BLACK P10 Game Drive | 5TB | $ at Amazon
This is a great deal on multiple fronts if you're looking for a quick and quality fix to your Xbox One storage woes - or to prepare for the new-gen too. First, it's got a solid discount, secondly, it's from WD so you know it's going to be reliable, solid, and perform well, and thirdly, it's a massive 5TB!View Deal

Plus, you can move over your existing Xbox One content when you upgrade too. We've already tested a bunch on the new Xbox, so if you'd like to see what works best on those, head on over to our best Xbox Series X external hard drive guide.

Making a decision on the best Xbox One external hard drive is ultimately driven by what you want from a portable HDD. As we've heard from the recent conversations about the new consoles, speed is a massive factor, with HDDs being almost wholesale replaced by SSDs whenever the opportunity presents itself. External SSDs are more expensive, however, but the faster read and write speeds they bring to the party can massively reduce load times and any time spent copying files from your console. 

Elsewhere, and probably for most users still, capacity is king. The larger the better. Many Xbox gamers will look for at least 4TB to get the best value option that'll keep them covered for the larger game collections, while some just need an extra 1TB to keep a few more games within arms reach that they play regularly. Reliability is a key factor, especially if you're going to be carrying your HDD with you regularly. You don't want something made of cheap materials that will damage easily and potentially lose all your game saves and installs with the slightest of bumps. And finally, very importantly, price is key, too and we consider all these criteria before putting something in our guide. All in, one of the best Xbox One external hard drives really is one of the most essential Xbox One accessories.

And remember, the winter seals madness is nearly here, which means there's going to be money to be saved on storage solutions. It might well pay to wait for the Black Friday external hard drive deals, but definitely think about perusing the Black Friday SSD offerings, and the Black Friday PS5 SSD deals as there's very likely to be something in those that'll be perfect for Xbox One players too.

1. WD 4TB My Passport Portable

The best Xbox One external hard drive

Specifications

Capacity: 4TB

Storage Type: HDD

Reasons to buy

+Huge storage capacity+Trusted brand at a great price+Good speeds

Reasons to avoid

-Slightly short connector cord

Our top pick for best Xbox One external hard drive belongs to the Western Digital 4TB My Passport series. We used to recommend a 2TB drive (which is still more than large enough for most people), but with Xbox One X ownership rising and the increased size of 4K games, this is the best way to future proof yourself. In terms of features, this USB (and USB ) compatible hard drive offers AES encryption and cloud storage, along with WD's own backup software. In reality, all you really need to know is that this hits the sweet spot of size, speed and affordability. This 4TB external hard drive will store up to 40 Xbox One X games (or more), and up to or so regular Xbox One games. Basically, it's a monster, and with a three-year limited warranty, there's every reason to buy with utmost confidence. It's available in a 2TB option, too, but 4TB feels like maximum value. What's more, the new design is excellent, stylish and keeps all that is good in a sleek new aesthetic.

2. Toshiba 1TB Canvio Advance

Best budget Xbox One external hard drive

Specifications

Capacity: 1TB

Storage Type: HDD

Reasons to buy

+Great price+Small and slick+Different colors available

Reasons to avoid

-Standard HDD speed

We have a new budget pick for the best Xbox One external hard drive. The Toshiba Canvio Advance is a lovely piece of kit: it comes with a glossy shell, a simple design, and a neat, blue power-light on the top. It doesn't require an additional power source, and simply plugs into the USB port on your Xbox One console and just works. It has read and write speeds to match all other drives on this list, and comes with a two year warranty as standard. If you want to use it for PC too, it has password protection and automatic file back-up, which are both useful features that elevate this model above our previous budget pick, the Canvio Basics. The only real drawback of the Advance is that it doesn't come in a green color, which means it won't complement your console. However, you can get white which does look slick next to most Xbox consoles. You should be able to grab the 1TB version for around $50 / £50, which makes it a genuine bargain too.

3. WD Black P10 TB Game Drive

A bit pricey, but reliable and built to last

Specifications

Capacity: TB

Storage type: : HDD

Reasons to buy

+Super portable size+Runs cool and quietly at all times+3-year warranty

Reasons to avoid

-Quite expensive-Standard speeds

The WD Black P10 hard drive is a superb portable option for expandable storage. And while not listed as an armored or 'rugged' hard drive, we found it to have a really sturdy build-quality with the metal topside giving it a bit of a shipping container aesthetic. We also noticed the hard drive runs cool (and quietly too), even with back to back-to-back hour days for a couple of weeks.

Why would you have it running that long? Well, we decided to test the 5TB version and download every single Xbox Game Pass game (took a while with our home connection speed). And we managed it too, that's over games, with a bit of space leftover. 

The write speed is nothing special at 'up to MB/s' but we found it matched that of the Xbox One console itself, so we were perfectly happy running our entire game collection from this external hard drive rather than the console's storage system. 

An Xbox branded version has a white trim instead of the cheaper all-black model, but that's the only real difference and we found the plain one to be cheaper. Although some of the branded ones come with a code for two months of Game Pass, so worth checking the product description for confirmation there.

4. Seagate 2TB/4TB Xbox One Game Drive

The official Xbox One external hard drive (and it's a good one too!)

Specifications

Capacity: 2TB/4TB

Storage Type: HDD

Reasons to buy

+All the space you'll ever need+Looks great

Reasons to avoid

-A little on the expensive side

This officially branded external hard drive on Xbox One comes in 2 or 4GB options giving you a choice depending on if you want to go for media storage, or games. It's basically a regular Seagate drive in a flashier case, and you're paying about $ extra for having the (admittedly quite nice) embossed Xbox logo and official green case colour. If your budget allows, and aesthetics are important to you, it's functionally still a great choice, and you can often find it on sale. The Seagate 2TB Game Drive in official Xbox green often drops in price around big retail events, so while now is a great time to buy, we'll surely see reductions in the new year sales.

If you're not worried about official branding, this Seagate 4TB drive at Walmart is currently $40 off at $

5. Seagate Expansion 8TB

The biggest Xbox One external hard drive

Specifications

Capacity: 8TB

Storage Type: HDD

Reasons to buy

+Gargantuan storage space+Great price

Reasons to avoid

-Needs plugging into the mains-Not exactly small

The Seagate Expansion 8TB is USB compatible and offers more storage than you'll likely ever need. It's the ideal choice for the prolific Xbox One user who wants to buy one hard drive and never have to think about storage again. The huge storage capacity raises the price, obviously, and the 8TB drive requires an external power adapter (supplied in the box), but is surprisingly elegant for such a large device. At lbs with dimensions of x x in, the Seagate Expansion 8TB is also considerably lighter than rival large capacity external hard drives, such as the WD 8TB My Book drive at lbs with dimensions of x x in.

6. Silicon Power Armor A62

A great value hardy drive

Specifications

Capacity: up to 5TB

Storage Type: HDD

Reasons to buy

+Robust and solid design+Easy to set up and use+Good speeds

Reasons to avoid

-You'll probably still want an external case to take it out and about to be sure

This is a great value option for those looking for a tough as nails hard drive with decent and reliable transfer rates and speeds, robust design, and a do-it-all feel to their external hard drive. 

It's a solid unit that has a fair bit of weight to it, which makes it really feel like it could survive a drop or two, or bump around the house. There's a big emphasis on robustness here with the drive being shockproof, water-resistant, and is anti-scratch protected, plus there is a rubber bumper around the outside which helps with grip when on the go and adds a bit more protection to the drive. The rubber actually pulls away at some parts (safely) to act as a holder for the USB cable when on the go, and there's a little USB port cover which is a nice touch for storage.

As well as using it solely as an Xbox One external hard drive, we used this to back up a load of files onto via PC and it was very easy to set up and use, and the transfer speeds were very quick - even 'by eye'; transferring more than GB of things didn't take any time at all. This represents an all-round solid acquisition in the hard drive department.

7. WD_Black P50 Game Drive

The best external SSD for Xbox One right now

Specifications

Capacity: up to 4TB

Storage type: SSD

Reasons to buy

+Excellent speeds+Great design+Robust build+Purpose-built for gaming

Reasons to avoid

-A little pricey

The WD BLACK P50 SSD is pretty much the complete package. And what a robust package it is. Starting from the top, the P50 is a rectangular-shaped drive that is about the size of a small-ish (nowadays, anyway) smartphone. It's still handheld size though so it's extremely portable while also staying firmly away from the 'so small I might lose it' territory. The case is a very cool-looking military style with molded metal and the traditional sleek WD_Black aesthetic and marking.

Its USB-C port can be used on your devices as either a USB-A or USB-C connection and in our testing, we got the same speeds through either port so it shouldn't matter which you have free or available, or if you change the device it's used with during its lifetime. There's a small but clear LED indicator on one of the short ends which is always a help, but one small downside is that it does get a little warm when in use so it'll pay to keep that in mind when positioning it.

When it comes to speeds, what you're told you're getting and what happens is pretty much bang on. It's incredible performance for an external SSD and the stated speeds of 'up to MB/s' were on the money in our testing. Real-world performance-wise, the P50 gives you everything a high-quality external SSD should do: games were loaded incredibly quickly, files were retrieved in the snap of a finger, and the performance levels were incredibly consistent. It's a surefire SSD that will rapidly improve your gaming experience by far reducing the time looking at loading screens and increasing the time when you're actually playing. 

While you will pay a bit more for the P50, it's definitely worth it. It's hard to look past this as the top SSD contender in the world of the best Xbox One external hard drives.

8. OWC Envoy Pro EX SSD

A stylish and solid SSD

Specifications

Capacity: up to 2TB

Storage type: SSD

Reasons to buy

+Excellent portable design+Small and solid+Decent speeds

Reasons to avoid

-A bit expensive

The OWC Envoy Pro EX SSD is a neat little SSD that has excellent form and function. With that, and it being an SSD, it does demand a high-ish price tag but the quality you get for your money is undeniable.

As a unit of tech, it's simply a great bit of kit: it's a sleek, stylish, silver wedge-shaped drive with one connection port and one LED that is pocket-sized and very robust. Despite being small, it has a good weight to it and really feels like it could survive the odd bump or drop. It's small enough to keep out of the way behind a console, but also stylish enough - for a hard drive - to be left open to see. 

If you do want to turn it into a PC external drive then the software on board will get you going well. This is also how we revealed the speeds, using Crystal Disk Mark, of mb/s read speed, and mb/s write speed. Solid enough and certainly reliable for it to be among the best Xbox One external hard drives.
