If you need more storage on your Xbox One, an external hard drive like this Silicon Power Armor A60 can provide lots more space for your games. The A60 is available with up to 5TB capacity and the one I have here is the 1TB model. This drive is nice and compact and is USB 3 which is a requirement for Xbox One. The enclosure is scratch and water resistant with a high-tech look to it.

The Armor A60 comes with cable holders on the side but they can fall off really easily with just light pressure on them. I wouldn’t be surprised if these tabs get lost in the first few days owning this drive as you can see here. The included cable is USB 3 and is only about 10 inches long. The USB port is hidden under a silicon flap at the bottom of the drive. Just plug the cable into the A60 and the back of the Xbox One and it’s ready to go! You can see that it’s powered up when this blue light is on.

When the drive is first connected to the Xbox, It will ask how you want to use this device. To store media like music, pictures and videos it’s already ready to use. But if you want to store games and apps on the A60, it will need to be formatted first. The drive can also be named for easy identification when plugged in. You can choose to have new games and apps installed by default on the external drive or keep them on the internal drive.

Formatting only takes about 6 seconds and it’s ready to use. The Silicon Power Armor A60 external hard drive is a great storage solution if you need more space on an Xbox One. It’s powered through the USB port so there isn’t a power cable needed. The one and two terabyte models are under $100 and provide plenty of extra storage but you can get the A60 with up to 5TB if you download a lot of games!

I hope you enjoyed this video and if you did please give me a thumbs up and don’t forget to subscribe to my channel TheRenderQ for more how-to videos and product reviews.
