Seagate is your best bet. I am running a seagate barracuda 500gb and all the other seagate hdd's I looked at will work in the xbox too.

if you got a 500gb you might not need that much but you never know...at least you got the space if you ever do. Wink

I'm running a 160Gb Maxtor drive in mine, but like the others say here, I've found no probs with Seagate or WD either.

I'll think you'll be pretty safe with any of those 3 makes, they all seem to be compatible across a range of sizes.
