This 120GB Xbox 360 hard drive allows enough space for a whole library of Xbox LIVE Arcade games as well as downloadable high-definition TV shows, movies, music, and all the other content available from Xbox LIVE Marketplace.

Following details from Argos website:

:- Includes a data transfer kit to easily migrate all of your saved data from your current disk drive to your new 120GB HDD.

:- Comes preloaded with great HD game demos, videos and an assortment of Xbox Live Arcade game trials.

*Yes, I know it's expensive for memory and you can find a PC hard drive for 50p but still for a new Xbox hard drive it's one of the cheapest I can find.

Kits? you sure i'm pretty sure there just the drives as you have to request the kit part which is the cable and now have to pay for the pleasure.

I bought mine for £49.99 from Woolworths over a year ago - but that was kinda a special offer hehe.

Voted hot!

I am referring to the poster saying they are cheaper to buy at broadbandbuyer, the ones listed on broadbandbuyer are OEM (none retail, do not have the transfer cable and are Elite Black exterior ones)

The ones at Argos are retail kits, have the transfer cable, grey exterior, designed to match the off white Arcades and old Premiums.

tempting... been strugling with my 20gb one for the last 3 years..... might be time for an update!

I think it's about time I upgraded too! Thanks bargainboy :)

Wow thanks, just reserved the last one.

true, they may not come with the transfer kit and are OEM but they do come with a one year warranty

I'd go for OEM as it has the transfer cable too!

Read again. The OEM dont come with a transfer kit. The Retail do.

Example...

Broadbandbuyer's link stipulates "Note: These are official Microsoft OEM hard drives with full warranty. Please be aware they do not come in retail boxes or with transfer kits. "

Argos link : Includes a data transfer kit to easily migrate all of your saved data from your current disk drive to your new 120GB HDD.

Great Price I must say. I wouldn't trust broudbandbuyers products as they're most likely chinese copies (although there's probably nothing wrong with them as they use WD drives). It's a shame people don't bother reading then make themselves look foolish.

P.S. 250GB has only officially been released in Japan so I don't see how this supplier has been able to get stock in the UK if they've not officially released them yet.. has to be 'fake'.

Wow, thanks for letting us all know :roll:

most people will know someone with a transfer cable anyway, unless they have no friends and sit there playing online with people they don't know

Hot as it's the best price going at the minute.

But i'll join in the gloating at paying £27 early last year at HMV!

Thanks for this post ... I don't know anyone with a transfer kit and I didn't want to risk buying an OEM drive and M$ deciding to disable it. Off to get mine tonight :)

Waste of money...

Build your own 250GB drive by doing a bit of reading up for less than £45. You get a 2 year warranty on the one you made yourself too. (courtesy of Western Digital who make the hard drive you use).

1. Buy this...

http://www.tekheads.co.uk/product/Western-Digital-Scorpio-250GB-WD2500BEVT-25inch-SATA-5400rpm-8MB-OEM_10493.html

and tha case from dealextreme.com for about £6



2. Attach the laptop to your computer using sata port\sata powe port. Download 250GB ss file (it's about 2kb!) Run "hddhackr" program in dos, follow the prompts...basically just type your drive number from the list, type in filename of the 250GB ss, and chose flash...done.

3. Assemble the drive in the case you've bougt (takes about 5 mins to put together)

Any problems in the future, run hddhackr on the drive to restore it using the undo file it creates when flashing it bringing it back to retail stock drive so you can RMA it.

These drives are also slightly faster than the Hitachi ones used in the official ones, and more reliable (well the WD name is more reliable than Hitachi AFAIK)

That was a very spiteful comment.

Hot deal thanks, I'm after a migration cable at present.
the transfer cable is ~£13 from MS
does anyone know how much would Game/CEX give for trade in on the HDD?

That won't happen, it's an external accessory so technically does not violate any EULA.

As they use cloned security sectors, they are also indestinguishable from the official alternative. People have been using hddhackr for around 3 years now and not a single person has ever been banned for using one.

This seems like a good deal to me:

You get three months of xbox live gold too

I'm sure things work differently here in the USA but as recent as 2 weeks ago, I was able to pick up a transfer kit from Microsoft by calling 800.4my.xbox. I simply explained to the tech that I refused to pay for the kit since I had already paid to get my drive. He gave me some BS regarding how the only way I could get it for free was if I had originally purchased an Arcade system (mine is an older pro). I then informed him that I would be canceling all my accounts and NOT renewing upon expiration due to Microsoft's desire to score an xtra $10 from me. He put me on hold for about 3 minutes and returned stating my transfer kit would ship out the next day.

5 days later it arrived...FREE!

Sometimes you have to put your foot down with these people. Just like the cable company and the phone company, there's always an option! You just have to make the idiot on the other end of the line realize he's wasting his time so he'll let a super make the call.

Easy sleezy! Try it before you buy it folks!
