    "unofficial" 360 hard drives

    I really want to get an HDD that's a decent size, but I really don't want to pay more than I have to. I'm going to be blunt; are the knockoff 360 hard drives on ebay in any way detectable/bannable? Couldn't find a definite answer on the net. Thanks.

    Detectable, probably.
    Bannable, probably.

    Will they ban people for using them?? I doubt it as there are so many people with them. Although saying that, they did ban the use of unofficial memory cards.

    they'll probably all use the same drive code.

    Another question is, are they reliable? Imagine losing your character in fallout 3 or losing your GTA 4 progress? Not good! Not worth the risk IMHO. But, having never tried one I could be wrong

    I mean, the cheapest you can get a 60GB drive for is £50 (admittedly with 3 months of live and a headset), where on ebay some 120GB ones are selling for as low as £38.50!

    Second hand 120gb hdds regularly pop up on here for about £50.

    250GB one here for £44.55 with good reviews... tempted to say the least dealextreme.com/det…827

    Just get a 2nd hand genuine one if you are worried. Usually sell for £40 - £45

    I was going to buy this very one earlier tonight, but just can't see the point of such a large drive on a 360
