Xbox 360 Hard Drive 120GB (GS-Refurb)
Great for the price
I needed more space because my old 20 gb hdd that came with my 360 pro i've had for 4 years had run out of space. I went out to my local game stop and bought this. To my surprise when i got home the hdd was from an elite. I spent about 30 minutes copying my data to my new hdd. This hdd is recommended to all gamer and pro's everywhere!!
Great Product and Great Price!
I bought this 120GB Xbox 360 refurbish hard drive from this website for an incredible low price of $25+shipping, don't know how and why it was that low in price but I took a chance and I'm very pleased, the hard drive arrived in almost new condition, almost no marks that it had been used at all and so far it's been almost 1 year and still going strong, I ripped 3 games to it, MW3, Halo Reach, and Bayonetta and I still have more than 80GB left..... Anyway, I highly recommend this refurbished hard drive to anyone.
I bought this thinking it was a great value and it would have been if it hadn't have corrupted my system. About 2 weeks in it broke and I lost all my save data, but luckily I kept my old hard drive just in case. It's a 50/50 chance on these refurbs, it's up to you if you want to risk 45 bucks
I was a bit worried at first after reading about the misfortunes some people had with this product but I decided that I had no choice but to try it out. And everything worked out far better than I had expected.
Good, but isn't this a little too much memory???
This is great, don"t get me wrong, but do we need this much memory? This is good if you are the type of person who wants tons of demos and add-ons for games.
Have had no issues and at half the price of new how can you go wrong. Needed to buy transfer cable but transfer was a breeze.
Not worth the risk, lost all my data
I have been a Gamestop customer for years. In April of 2012 I decided that I needed to get a larger hard drive for my Xbox 360 so I, per usual, went to Gamestop. I read the reviews online and saw that a lot of people had good luck and some that didn't. I honestly figured those that had negative reviews just did something wrong or had sour grapes, so I bought the refurbished hard drive.
When I received the hard drive, I hooked it up and it operated properly, so I transferred all of my data to the new hard drive with no issue. Upon transferring the data I played a game and then turned off my system until the next day. When I started up my system the next day I got an E68 error message and the flashing 'red ring of death' on my Xbox. The E68 message is notification that there is an issue with the hard drive. I contacted Microsoft to see about resolving the issue or at the very least to recover my data. After consulting with Microsoft and attempting their recommendations it was determined that the hard drive was lost and all of my data was permanently lost. So the hundreds of hours that I had in Skyrim, Fallout 3 and other games are completely lost. The Mass Effect Series that I had continued and transferred from game to game is lost, with the painful fact that I had not yet, but almost, completed Mass Effect 3.
To summarize, some people may have had good luck with this product, but there are others out there, myself included, who have had worse than bad luck with this product. It is not worth the risk to buy this product when you can buy a new hard drive for just a little bit more. Take my word, it is not worth saving $40 or $50 dollars on a product, only to have the product be faulty and you loose years of saved game data in the blink of an eye.
Great. Gamestop Sold Me a Brick.
So here's the thing: Microsoft's Xbox 360 hard drives are normally fine products. However, buyer beware when it comes to GameStop's refurbished products, because my experience was not satisfactory. I purchased this particular hard drive via Gamestop.com, but when I plugged it into my 360, it didn't show up as a storage device. My old 20 gb hard drive works just fine, why didn't this new one work? Plugged it into my laptop via a transfer cable and discovered that it was previously re-formatted on the 360 dashboard as a 16 gb usb storage device. There's really no means of returning it to its original factory state without some serious haXXor skills (which I sadly lack), so my options are to use this as a 16 gb memory card or reformat it and use it as a 120 gb external drive for my computer. Neither option is acceptable really, because I bought it as a storage device for my 360. I think the HD Gamestop sent to me was either pre-owned (and the owner made the mistake of re-formatting it) or somebody in the fulfillment center dropped the ball and sent out a defective HD.
Just what i was looking for
I started off with a 20 GB hard drive and as we all know that doesn't hold much, I got into downloading game content like for Black Ops and before i knew it I already got down to 5.6 GB and there wasn't really anything I could delete, so I checked up on here and seen this hard drive 120 GB for $50 refurbished and couldn't believe it, so the next day I went and picked it up, transferred all my data and still had tons of space left, so if your looking for something that holds alot of space but don't want to pay alot or simply don't have much to spare on a hard drive (especially an older model 360), then id HIGHLY recommend this product, also I'd recommend getting Blur too, great and fun game.
The one i got mailed to me cant play any games, when i try to play halo reach or any download it will suddenly freeze for about 1-2 seconds then practically restart to the main dashboard.
