The Xbox Series X|S Expansion Card is a powerful external SSD which adds 1TB of capacity to your console and offers the same super-quick data rates of your internal storage drive.

This custom-built SSD is made exclusively by Seagate, who partnered with Microsoft to offer the best possible speeds for the new console on an external drive.
Why: Not having to be scared of losing your saved games and running out of storage.

Article 1, Super-fast storage in the palm of your hand: The Seagate Expansion SSD also offers greater reliability and much faster transfer speeds than typical external hard drives.

Article 2, Seagate One Touch Portable – Big storage in a compact package : With up to 5TB of storage, you will have space for hundreds of full-length movies, thousands of series episodes, or hundreds of thousands of high-quality photos, songs, or documents.

Article 3, Expand your Xbox game library with the Seagate Expansion Card: You can instantly install games directly onto the drive and play them from this storage device as well, negating the need for you to manage and balance your files one way or the other.

Fast and easy transfers

Time is certainly precious and if copying large amounts of data, for example VM's quickly would prove helpful

Seagate Expansion Card​

"The 802GB of useable storage on the Series X, or 364GB on the Series S, may be more than enough for some – but collectors and game hoarders will quickly find themselves filling up their drives."

The additional space would be well appreciated. I'm a person to start a game, put it on hold (for years) but never want to delete the game as "I will eventually get to it" :)

The highly compact plug-and-play drive requires no cables or installation

This is especially appealing, more modules should be just plug and play

Article 1
Seagate’s Expansion External SSD offers powerful performance and large storage in an impressively compact form factor.
This will be great for me as I travel quite a lot with a laptop bag and need stuff to be small and lightweight. Also this is great as it will carry all my files and data for my day-to-day work and tasks.

This means you can copy over 60GB of data – typically the size of the latest AAA video games – in 30 minutes.
