Trying to find a power supply because my third party one is too loud, the only official Microsoft one is 40. Anyone tried these converters?

Don't blame MS if you end up with a fried Xbox One.

When it comes to power, the only thing that should is okay to be non-official is the cable going from the outlet to the power supply. The power supply itself should always be an official one. If you want to risk using an non-official, even if it's for the Xbox 360, then you are taking an expensive risk.

Why do you already need a new power supply? Also with laptops i learned long ago it is better just put out and pay the higher price for an official one vs a cheap one that you might have to keep replacing. Cheaper in the long run.

I got my Xbox One for 170 which was a pretty good deal - just lacked a power supply. It's harder than i thought it would be to get a Microsoft branded one

Just tried looking for one and you weren't kidding. They just really don't exist right now.

Also if you do try that i would personally go through microsofts site and find that link instead of going from the link off the website. But i'm just paranoid about random links like that.

I tried that but you need to have your old power supply in order to get a replacement. Just got off the phone with Microsoft and they told me the very same thing. Stuck with a very loud 3rd party power supply for the time being
