In The Men Cave Emmanuel and myself test out gaming products to see if they are worth the price. Today: the My Passport X external storage for Xbox One!
So you know that feeling when you want to install a new game on your Xbox or PC and you don’t have any space available? Well, there’s a – cheap – solution. For 90$ you get 2TB of extra space, which can be used to store about 40 games or something. Plenty of space in my opinion. However, an external drive that runs games is not always good and might lose on frames and quality.
That’s not the case with the My Passport X though! We tested it by installing multiple games and played our games from there and it worked like if it were a disc. Other cool thing is that you can take the drive with you to someone else and he can play your games on his Xbox. Pretty cool if you ask me.
However, this needs to be plugged in continuously and it says ‘no sweat setup’, but you still need to tweak some settings in order to get your downloads or installs on the new drive instead of the built in drive. Once that’s done, you get 2TB (or more) extra space available for all your needs and it’s more than enough. I did found the installation speed on the drive a bit slow, but that’s probably due to internet speeds. Overall, for the price I would definitely recommend the My Passport X if you’re looking for some extra storage! You can find the My Passport X here.
