What customers say about "Key Specs"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • The XBOX ONE is very fast and high quality gaming system. I have played PS4 until now and the XBOX quality is much better.
  • The Xbox One is awesome. Great games with stellar graphics and incomparable online community.
  • Graphics are way improved from the 360, to match the newer more advanced game's.
  • We use it to watch things like Netflix, HBO Now, and Blu Rays.
  • The graphics are much improved, but I don't really care for the layout of the menus.
  • Piece of crap is a paperweight since the mid year 2017 update. Extremely slow on startup. Won't load any games or apps. Can't even watch a stinking Blu-ray. Microsoft can kiss my a**. Not backward compatible for any of my good games.Gonna buy a PlayStation and be a happy gamer.
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • This console runs everything a little better. My old games look sharper on my 4K HDR set.
  • Well worth upgrading from Xbox 360, this thing does absolutely everything and the picture and sound is flawless. It's a totally different gaming experience than with the 360.
  • The graphics and visuals are noticeably better, the colors are sharper and everything is way more clear. Watching Game of Thrones via this bad boy was spectacular.
  • Works well, runs cool, love the internal power supply, is a small console, plays DVD/Blu-Ray/UHD discs to my 4k, plays my games, what's not to love.
  • The only frustrating things was the included game in that it is only valid on the Xbox One and I do not get it on the Windows 10 PC store.

What customers say about "Storage"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • Love the game and the extra storage space. Was worth the extra money for larger hard drive and game.
  • This was for a gift for someone else. They really enjoyed the new 1 TB expanded HD storage.
  • Nice to have the extra storage.
  • Very good Quality also very good deal for a 1 TB memory
  • Would have been nice if the console was division themed.
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • The memory of the console is plenty for me but I can see how it will fill up fast as you download digital copies.
  • One of my worries was that the hard drive is only 500GB, but buying and using an external hard drive will not only be cheaper than buying the 1 TB console, but playing games that are downloaded onto the external hard drive actually makes them load FASTER!
  • With hdmi you can connect it to any lcd tv.
  • It only comes with a 500gb HDD (of which only about 375gb is allowed for personal use).
  • The 360 died so I made the Jump to the "ONE". First let me say I wish this was a 2 tera instead of 500 gigs I only could get 5 "1" games and 6 "360" games on it Second definetly better graphics and the way everything's approached.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • HDMI pass through. You can hook up an HDMI device to the back of an Xbox One to view the content from that device without changing inputs or leaving the X1 interface.
  • External USB 3.0 storage. This is great because you don't need to open the console and replace a hard disc to add storage, just plug in and the X1 will format the drive.
  • USB 3.0 is actually faster than the internal hard disc interface.
  • You will need an Internet connection to set this up
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • I Noticed decreased load times and it looks quite a bit better through the included cable plugged into the 60 Hz port in comparison to the Xbone with either its HDMI cable, or the One S cable in the same port!
  • Connections are quite easy, even comes with a HDMI cable I believe.
  • The content inside the box was: Xbox One S, Controller, HDMI and Power cable
  • Great console, great game. Just wish it had a port for the Kinect sensor. You'll need an adapter otherwise.
  • The only thing I was disappointed in was it does not have the ability to connect Kinetic. We don't play Kinetic games very often but it would have been great to still be able to plug my old kinetic from my Xbox One DAY ONE machine.

What customers say about "Features"
Xbox One 1TB Console - Tom Clancy's The Division Bundle
  • Controller is very nice to handle, little bit bigger than the xbox 360's controller. This one comes with a black controller, however you can purchase a white controller (separately).
  • You can multitask, snap an app, for example, say... either twitch or youtube and you can be watching a stream or video while either browsing other stuff.. playing a game... or watching a stream on twitch
  • You can "now" finally listening to music, thru background music, pandora is one of them that allows this, it cam sometimes be buggy fyi.
  • You WILL NEED an HD TV to play on the xbox one, the reason being as it does not have the "red, white, yellow" (av (audio/video) adapter) cables port like the xbox 360's did, only HDMI cable will work.
  • You will probably need lots of batteries, as it does not have the "rechargeable" pack like the xbox 360's did.
  • The Xbox setup is complicated and takes some time.
Xbox One S 500GB Special Edition Console
  • Menus, etc, run a tad smoother. A little faster. Games seem to download faster. The controller feels a bit better, and it was already great.
  • The controller is great and reacts well and feels great in the hands.
  • There was a download code for Battlefield 1 which, if that's your cup of tea, a phenomenal game. Also, there is a free month of EA Access so you can download maybe 30 or so games and play until your heart is content.
  • Fluidity and contrast ratio with Ultra HD TVS including the UDH feature are brilliant! The Battlefield One game code works great, and it is an amazing visually interactive experience if you're into gaming. I'm using it more as a media center for my high resolution movies.
  • The only problem I have with the package is the battery consumption of the controller. I highly recommend you purchase the rechargeable battery pack with this bundle to save the trips to the store for AA batteries.
