Gaming / Tech / Xbox

After you’ve had your Xbox One for any length of time, you’re sure to know that your hard drive space is quickly filling up, especially if you have a 500GB version of Microsoft’s console. That’s where an Xbox One external hard drive comes in and ADATA has unveiled a pair of USB 3.0 hard drives compatible with Xbox One consoles.


The HD650X external hard drive is being marketed specifically for Xbox One consoles, and comes with 2TB of storage capacity — plenty of extra space for those video games. A modified version of their ruggedized HD650 external drive, the HD650X is highly resistant to water, shocks, and dust, and features a tough silicone layer that’s color matched to the Xbox ecosystem. In addition, the HD650X makes it easy for you to take your games with you to a friends house, letting you simply plug into their Xbox One, sign in with your Xbox Live account, and access all your games without having to redownload and install them.

Features and specifications of the HD650X include:

  • Best for Xbox one and Xbox 360
  • Subtle and modern appearance
  • High-end silicone material
  • Triple-layer protection
  • 256-bit AES encryption
  • Interface: USB3.0, backward compatible with USB 2.0
  • Color: Green
  • Capacity: 2TB
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 121 .0 x 81.0 x 21.0 mm (4.8 x 3.2 x 0.8 inch)
  • Weight: 201g (7.1oz)
  • Warranty: 3 years


Adata-HD710M-external-hard-driveWhile the HD710M external hard drive isn’t specifically marketed for the Xbox One, it is compatible due to it also being USB 3.0-driven. The HD710M includes military-grade water, shock, and dust proofing and is available in 1TB or 2TB capacities. It has been tested and rated for IP68 dust and water proofing, and can survive in 2 m of water for up to two hours and still work just fine. The triple-layer construction and silicone shell helped the hard drive survive US Army MIL-STD-810G 516.6 specification tests, so you can be confident that your data will survive most falls or accidental drops. In addition, the included USB cable fits into a wraparound groove for easy wire management.

Features and specifications of the HD710M include:

  • Military-grad shockproofing matched by woodland camo design
  • Waterproof (IPX8 standard: Submerged to 2 meters for 120 minutes)
  • Dustproof (IP6X standard: Totally protected against dust)
  • Military-grade Shockproof (1.8m drop test than the standard of MIL-STD-810G 516.6)
  • High-end silicone case with carbon fiber-like pattern
  • Interface: USB3.0, backward compatible with USB 2.0
  • Color: Camouflage
  • Capacity: 1TB / 2TB
  • Dimensions (L x W x H): 132.0 x 99.0 x 22.0 mm (5.2 x 3.9 x 0.8 inch)
  • Weight: 220g (7.8oz)
  • Warranty: 3 years
