Expanding Xbox Series X|S storage

When the Xbox Series S first launched, it only came with 512GB of storage. While there is now a 1TB Carbon Black version of the Xbox Series S, the original model with only 512GB is still sold. In fact, that version with less storage is the most affordable way to get an Xbox Series S, so some people opt to get the console for the lowest price they can and then expand storage later (see deal below).

The Seagate Storage Expansion Card is easy to use. You just plug the card into the back of your console and the storage of your machine expands. It's fast as well, delivering speeds ultra fast speeds similar to the built-in storage of the console. That means load times are reduced and performance should feel the same whether a game is stored on your console or the expansion card.

The main drawback of the Seagate Storage Expansion Card is its price. The 1TB model launched at $219.99 and the 2TB version had an eyewatering $399.99 price tag at launch. Prices have dropped steadily with a few dramatic dips for the holidays.  The 1TB model is now down to its lowest price ever, making it a great time to expand your console's storage.

Our Seagate Storage Expansion Card review concluded by saying, "when looking for a seamless storage expansion for your Xbox, eliminating the need to manage storage, the Seagate Storage Expansion Card is unbeaten. There's nothing else that compares, with little to fault, beyond the high asking price. Here's hoping that drops a few years down the line."

The Seagate Storage Expansion Card is still unbeaten when it comes to seamless storage expansion, but it no longer costs almost as much as a new console.
