Personally, I would want to change out the internal drive with a Seagate 2TB SSHD ( 95 USD currently. ) Yes, we can use an external hard drive however Digital Foundry in their Halo 5 XBOX One X video stated that load hitching got worse when using one. Although this seems to be game specific, I feel it would be pretty annoying having to manage storage if you happen to select a game with loading issues. This also feels like the chicken/egg problem. Do we criticize MS for using a standard 5200 RPM drive for what is suppose to be the ultimate XBOX or 343i for not going back and reworking those areas to take advantage of the expanded memory available?

Iím going to pick up an XBOX One X today and see how I can relatively quickly test an external 3.5 2TB 7200 RPM drive and an external Samsung T3 SSD. See if it makes a difference.
Overall not the end of the world for XBOX One X since when the warranty runs out there may be more 200 or less 1TB SSD solutions available. I have to ask though, has the ability to make the hard drive user accessible on the PS4 and PS4 Pro made a significant difference in the user's game experience?
What are your thoughts?
