Rated 5 out of 5 by from Huge and Easy To Use I got this to attach to my Xbox One, as it has a huge amount of storage (space for over 200 games). It also sits well next to the console, as it has similar styling and the physical size is small considering its mammoth capacity. It comes pre-formatted, has 128-bit encryption and can be used with WD Backup and my Apple Time Machine.
