Warning - Beware this subscription SCAM
Device is great but the subscription is a joke. Purchased a 12 month Xbox Live subscription (for $79.95) and had an ongoing Xbox Ultimate ($15.95 pm). Finally found the time and worked out how to stop the monthly subscription (painful internet research required) and convert to the Live 12 month only to be told that I must have agreed to convert the 12 month Gold into 4 months of Ultimate. Why would that even be an option? Xbox Gold 12 months is $79.95, 4 months ultimate is $62.00. It’s deceptive and misleading (maybe unless you are an avid game...r or IT expert) to force people to swap something they bought for something worth less (in both value and duration), without making it explicitly clear, even so, surely it’s theft to replace a purchase with something of less value (Just like if you went and purchased a new BMW but in all your paperwork, there was a clause that you didn’t read, that says you are swapping it for a similar Toyota. When you ask where’s your BMW, they show you the paperwork... I call that misleading and deceptive conduct). I have lodged a formal complaint and requested a refund or the return of the Gold Live 12 month subscription. I’ll update when I hear back from them.
Purchased in December 2019 at JB Hi-Fi for $299.00.
Great product cheap yet good
The xbox one s is a good console recommend getting it. Great value got it for $250 with games. and it doubs as a Blu-ray DVD player so it's really two for the price of 1
Exactly what I wanted
I'm happy with the performance of this console. I will say great value for money. I've been using this for past 10 month and it did not disappoint me with the overall performance.
Overall a great console with just a few hiccups
I purchased the Xbox One S after my original Xbox One began lagging and could not keep up with the graphics required by some of the newer games released. The design of the S is extremely appealing, being much more streamline (i.e. slimmer, without rounded edges). The accompanying controller has a textured underside for grip, and is much more ergonomic during long hours of use than others. The connectivity has no problems from much further distances to the console. The reactivity is great and highly responsive, and the HDR capabilities means th...at games and viewing are MUCH more visually impressive. The lag times are noticeably fewer on the One S, and it has the capacity for 4K and in the times of insolation where the cinemas are closed, movie watching is about as magnificent as it can get (unless watched on the One X). One downside is that the original One S console does not have much memory, meaning that storage for more than a few data-hungry games will incur a higher cost with the 1 or 2 TB bundles. Another is that being an Xbox, it requires a lot of updates, and the time taken to download (depending on internet speed), can extend to overnight. Overall this console can do all that you require it to do, but the constant downloads become annoying over time.
Best value for a 4K Blue-Ray player
The Xbox One S is one of the best consoles Xbox has made, since it’s about 100% better than the original Xbox One! It’s more powerful, and it’s about $100 less than a 4K Blue-Ray player, not forgetting that this IS an Xbox, and you get the excellent quality of the software and games Xbox has to offer. Even though Xbox series X is coming out soon, I still think that this is a great buy, as prices are dropping. I highly recommend this console.
I have had the xbox one s for a couple of years now, and it just amazes me how many times it is either broken, not downloading or responding. Games very rarely actually save, you have the storage capacity to only download about 4 games (when first purchased), meaning that you will have to buy another 1 TB storage for about $80. As a result, the console is often very laggy when moving through the menus. Also, there are constant system update failures or hard disk corruption's, which restricted you from even opening the console. I have had this h...appen to me twice meaning that i have too delete all my progress from my xbox one s. Combine this with a controller that never works results in a terrible gaming experience. I have purchased 3 controllers for the xbox one, and not a single one has worked more than 3 months. Its just outrageous for a top quality console .It gets to the point where I don't even bother playing games anymore. It is just sooooo frustrating. If your planning on buying a console don't bother with this embarrassing piece of tech.
Love my new Xbox, it’s fast, 4k, great picture, I just wish they would give you 2 controllers in the bundle, free games are great also, looking forward to buying more games
It's Terrible & Horrible takes forever to install & starts eating up all the space in the console.
The only reason there is only 1 star, that's because the graphics is great, otherwise it would be no star option. Playing the game with the disk, first you have to install the game. I've never seen an installation take 10 hours of installing 1 game to be able to play with it with the disk, also somehow it was also downloading updates... 2nd game took 3 hours of installing then stopped halfway saying that the disk is damaged... If you keep going at this rate of installing games you run out of space, then what?... buy another hd?... xbox origin...al was better for gaming. You put the disk in and your away. This is terrible in terms of just trying to play a game..... I would suggest not getting this xbox one s. When you run out of space, they make you want to buy more, installation takes forever even with the disk - rather it's install game first before playing even with the disk so waiting time is 10 times longer, not forgetting you need unlimited internet access as some data required to download is over 60gigs for certain games. Products that they want you to sign up too or other purchases via the console, it's not for the purpose of entertainment or playing games but to make you spend more after purchasing this console.....
Very good, glad I got this item.
This is a fantastical gaming machine, After around 7 months of owning a Xbox one S it is still very usable. The console does not have one scratch and is very strong and durable and is small enough to fit in places like draws. The controller is very responsive but after a while of use it gets a bit less responsive and you have to press a button a couple of times for it to pick up on it. The screen quality is very good and the game options you have are wide, especially with Xbox Gamepass. One of the problems I encountered with the games is the limited space. Other then that this is a great console I highly recommend to anybody interested in gaming.
Perfect for what we need
Great range of games and apps. Gives us netflix for the kids to use in the other room and games to play when i want to wind down after a big day/week
Better than base
Upgraded from the original Xbox One to this. Very happy with the S. 4k is easy to set up and in conjunction with a 4k tv this console and games look fantastic. Very happy. If all you want is 4k ability the S is all you need.
Great gaming console with wide range of features to use
Have owned since Xmas and am really enjoying it, picture quality on games is great, loading times and game installs are quick, hard drive size is adequate for my needs, only gripe I have is constant issues with headset connectivity to the controller, seems to be very temperamental at times
Love my Xbox one s the graphics are amazing, the sound is perfect not to mention the amazing design and proformace of it. Very nice looking and does the job
Save your Money...
This has some ok benefits for TV viewing, but as a gaming console it is rubbish.
The games are ordinary with too much focus on paid subscriptions and add ons.
In game purchasing also means if your children are playing, you can expect at least one unwanted purchase.
There are some security settings, but it isn't simple and at the end of the day if you walk away and leave it open. Too Bad...you just paid for something you didnt want. And dont expect a refund, which took 2 hours to negotiate just to apply for one.
There is little to know support when it has issues, and I have had plenty.
I guess everyone in the gaming world already knows this is a crap machine, but hopefully I can save a few souls.
Bought for son as present and he is loving it completely,One mistake I made was only buying with 500 gig storage you need at least the one terabite,Am now looking to add external storage if any one can help with this we would greatly appreciate it.I Know I cam't spell terabite,Cheer's Krusty.
