Necessity for any Xbox One owners
Anyone who owns an Xbox One can attest to the irritation of having to install every game you want to play on the hard drive that comes with very limited space. This is the perfect answer to keep adding games to your collection without having to either sweat it out over which games live or die on your hard drive or play russian roulette with your currently installed games to make room for a new one. With 2 TB of space added on, I can comfortable install all my games with plenty of room to spare. This page, and other reviewers, said that after you plugged in the external drive that the Xbox One detected it and put instructions on the screen to follow so you could use it. I did not get this prompting and had to suss out how to manually set up the drive:
1. Press Menu (start) and select "Settings"
2. Select "Manage Storage"
3. Select the storage device and select "Format for Games and Apps"
After the formatting is done, you can go to the Games and Apps area and (hopefully) notice a lovely 2 TB increase to your space. You can use the "Manage Game" function to move games to and fro the local and external drives. When installing, you can select the external as your primary installation destination.

Improve your XB1 game experience w/ this Drive
i hooked this up to the Xbox One and that's about it. my issues came w/ the Xbox - but once they were cleared up, I moved every game that was notoriously slow to this drive and saw marked improvement. so even though this is not an SSD, it is a marked improvement on the default slow drive that comes standard w/ the XB1. you can't go wrong choosing this drive.

Easy to install
We had to format it from media to games, but it formatted quickly and we were able to have all of our digitally bought games available instead of deleting other games to play games in our cloud.

2 stars because while it worked it was great.
I have been using WD 3TB My Passport X for about a year and today my xbox one won't detect the device. I have tried it on another xbox and all available ports. I went through the troubleshooting methods listed by xbox and nada.It worked well while it lasted. I tried to register on their site to replace it, but registration failed every time.

After a year and change it just up and took a dump. Not recoverable. Couldn't see anything on a PC. The light is on and flickering, there's some noise on the hard drive, but will not give up any data. I am so disappointed that I am actually considering replacing it with a Seagate drive.

For easiest set up and to avoid wasted time, turn on console and then plug in the external drive. It will then request for you to reformat with a pop up. Otherwise you could be having problems finding the storage device through the settings like everybody else is saying.

Interchangeable storage for my Xbox has been nothing but great. I have never had an issue with the drive being detected or activated on either of my Xbox Ones.

Nice and good quality product. Small but large storage. IT allows me to store my 3D designs.
