Review: Seagate Expansion Card for Xbox X|S and other storage options [Video]

There’s no denying that the new Xbox Series X and S are fast. The Xbox boots up almost instantly, and the games load just as fast. One factor that plays a huge role in that is the speed of the internal storage. With about 802GB of usable storage on the Xbox Series X after system files and just 364GB on the Series S, though, you might be looking at external storage options since the latest titles keep getting bigger and bigger. The fastest option for expanding storage on the new Xbox is hands down the Seagate Storage Expansion Card for Series X|S, but there are other options if shelling out $220 isn’t possible at the time. Be sure to hit the video below to see more details.

First world problem, I know, but I often find myself running out of room on my iMac’s 27-inch 5K display. I like to have things like Twitter, messages, Discord, music, or Slack kind of running off to the side while I’m hammering away on articles or paperwork. Also, I wanted something to play games on when work time was over.

Enter the Monoprice 35-inch Zero-G Curved Ultra-Wide Gaming Monitor with 3440×1440 resolution and 100Hz refresh rate. And at a current sale price of $299.99, it ticks off all of the boxes and I’m now using that 5K iMac display as the side monitor. Head below for my hands-on review.
