    Am after a 4TB USB harddrive for my Xbox and whilst ive been looking ive noticed its seems hard to find out what speed USB harddrivers are weather there 7200 or 5400rpm. Does anyone know what the fastest USB 3 4TB is on the market at the moment?

    If you want to be sure, you can spec up an internal drive and just get an enclosure.

    I think Zefan means buy a USB 3 enclosure and fit the fastest HDD you can find into it

    If you buy WD black I'd want a fan cooled usb enclosure as even my WD elements gets warm, unsure what model inside is.

    Or you could use a 4tb SSD !!

    I just use a My Passport drive on my Xbox and not noticed any issues with it, as long as they are USB 3 then I think you are fine.

    You can buy dedicated Xbox and PS one's but I think they are just a gimmick as they're the same drives just in a different color enclosure and pre-formatted.
