The Seagate 1TB Storage Expansion Card is the only full speed add-on storage that allows you to expand storage on your Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S console. Each console includes a custom internal NVME SSD that is 40 times faster than the Xbox One. The Xbox Series X comes with 1TB of storage and the Xbox Series S comes with 512GB.
However, after formatting and the Operating System you are left with 802GB of space on the Xbox Series X and 364GB on the Xbox Series S. This means, depending on game size, you can expect to have 5-8 games at one time on the Xbox Series X and 4-5 games on Xbox Series S. On average, Xbox Series S games are 30% smaller than Xbox Series X games so they take up less space. Each game varies in size but these numbers above are good estimates. As a result, storage on both consoles fills up quickly.
Expanding storage on Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S
Once you fill the internal storage on either your Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S you have a few options. The first is to delete games that you don’t play often to free up more space. You can then, at a later time, reinstall or download the game(s) again when you want to play them.
Your second option is to add a USB hard drive to expand storage. Currently it’s the most economical way but you can only store Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S games on it. When you want to play those games, you have to transfer them over to the internal SSD. This can take anywhere from several minutes to over 20 minutes.

Your third and fastest option is the Seagate 1TB Storage Expansion Card. It uses the same Xbox Velocity Architecture that both consoles use. As a result, you can install your games to the expansion card and play them right from it. Better yet, it runs exactly as if you were playing from the internal SSD—you will never know the difference.
The Seagate 1TB Storage Expansion Card is roughly 5cm tall and lightweight. It comes with a plastic cover to protect the connectors at the end of the card. And, it easily fits in the palm of your hand. It plugs into the Storage Expansion slot on the back of Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S and is instantly recognized by the console. Best of all, the Seagate 1TB Storage Expansion Card can be used in more than one console. Simply unplug from the back of one console and plug it in to another.

Although the Seagate 1TB Storage Expansion Card is pricey, it is the only full speed add-on storage for Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S. Adding an extra 1TB is as simple as plugging it into the Storage Expansion slot. I really like the fact that you can use it on more than one console.
