This item can only be purchased with a combo
Pros: Arrived in secure packaging, with everything promised! The controlled that comes with the console feels good, nothing too different from the previous gen. Load times are amazingly fast. I Ordered express shipping (I believe it was 2-3 days?) and it got here very fast, within the day on the east coast. No major issues! Love it!
Cons: Unfortunately the controller is still operated but 2 AA batteries, like last gen. The batteries that are included with the controller are weak and die quickly.
Overall Review: I would 100% recommend, especially with game pass and its amazing deal. One thing i would suggest is to get rechargeable batteries for the controller, a type C wire (if you dont mind it being wired) or a controller thats rechargeable. Other than that great product! If youre deciding between consoles (ps5 v. XBSX/XBSS) this console will not disappoint ESPECIALLY with the price point! Great value. Loads of fun. Would highly recommend.
Pros: I like that you can up the setup by using your mobile phone. From opening the box to playing was very simple.
Not a lot of extra waste so clean up was as easy as setting out the box for recycle.
Makes a cute streaming box / media device.
Cons: This is a cute small factor system. That means long hours of pay will cause it to get really hot.
Those new to Xbox will need to purchase games, cannot borrow a friends or use someone's old disc.
Overall Review: I would recommend this for new console gamers.
Pros: Came in within days. Everything works as it should and everything included arrived.
Overall Review: Would do business again
Pros: Much more powerfull than the old S version
Cons: Heats a little bit, but does not affect performance for what I've seen
Overall Review: Just a new and nice little powerhouse
Pros: Ive seen some reviews saying this Xbox heats up but Ive had mine for less than a week and it has not gotten overheated one time. It even comes with an HDMI cable! I was so sure I was going to have to buy one and when I found it in the box I was overjoyed!! Great machine and even greater retailer!!
Overall Review: NewEgg is the MVP right now, all xboxes on other websites have been sold out for all of May 2021. I finally found NewEgg and not only was able to purchase a NEW Xbox Series S but it arrived in less than a week. Ive found my forever store for gaming equipment and so much more now that Ive seen whats available at NewEgg. Thanks guys you really saved the day
Pros: This console is seamless and runs great have not had anything to complain about.
Overall Review: I would recommend this to anyone for this price you can't beat it.
Pros: - Great graphics/performance on games, even Flight Simulator, FH5, RDR2, and others
- Works with 4K, HDMI-CEC, HDR, etc
- Very compact size for a console of its performance
- Virtually silent, even on high performance games and under load
- SSD makes load times pretty quick
- Works well with streaming apps; I use my xbox for streaming movies/shows more than gaming without any issues.
- Very easy to set up, no external clunky power supply, few cords for rat nests
- Generates surprisingly little heat compared to a desktop with similar performance.
- Very low price.
- Can set up console horizontally or vertically, so it can fit in many places
Cons: - 512 gig storage feels limiting modernly
- No CDs, not a huge deal but I have some old Xbox 360 discs that I can't play.
Overall Review: Without a doubt, best console I've owned. Doesn't have nostalgia like the 360 or PS2 but performatively nearly flawless. Only issues I have are storage size, which is only a big issue if you're playing a lot of high storage games and don't like uninstalling, especially considering flash storage damage if you constantly rewrite data. Storage expansion is overpriced, but considering the almost ridiculously low price of the console, it hardly matters. I'm still amazed at how well this thing works and how it ticks almost every box for a good machine. No CDs sucks a little bit but most older games that I have on disc can be bought at a low price. Not worried enough to make a big deal, but this could matter to you if you do retro games more. I think having to buy Xbox Gold is dumb but is ultimately a small price to pay. Game Pass or Ultimate could be appealing if you go hard on playing EA, Microsoft, and generally triple A-type games. I don't personally game enough to make these useful, but if you watch a lot of stuff on streaming services like me, this console is great too. It's fairly portable for a console, not clunky at all, only has a few wires and no external power adapter to add to your rat's nest. I have a habit of dusting my console along with the rest of my table every month and maintaining my console in a spot where it has decent airflow on all sides with vents and I have never had issues of my console being loud or seeming to overheat from anything.
Pros: Light and small. Can put almost anywhere
Cons: Gets super hot like hotter or just as hot as a PC with 12gen Intel k CPU with overclock on stock cooler so keep that in mind when placing
Overall Review: Overall great system easy setup and great packaging
