Recently bought an old 250GB hard drive off eBay.

The seller looked legit, but when I got the package it was from china. It seems normal, and registers and plays on the 360 as it should, but it doesn't quite sit right in my Xbox. it's kind of a pain to take out and the button kind of sticks. Is this common with the 250Gb models? I don't know anyone else that has one to compare.

I'd leave negative feedback saying that it wasn't an official hard drive and doesn't fit properly. I don't have anything to add other than that.

what console do you have because the HDD for elite was a little bit different in size to the original and arcade

you bought a cheap nockoff. Nothing wrong with that imo.

I have the arcade. The HD is the same color as the 120GB. The Model # is X812552 - 003. I don't really care if it is a knock off. I guess my main concern is the safety of my data. I don't want it to decide to crash one day.

My motto is to never trust any valuble electronics from ebay sellers from china.

Try to play xbox 1 games on it.

You cant do it with the knock offs.

Not necessarily true. Only if they were lazy and didn't do it properly. It is true that a lot of ebay sellers dont bother with it when they format the drive though. If Xbox1 games don't work its 100% a knock off. However if they do, it's no guarantee it isn't still a knock off. Either way it doesn't really matter. Well unless you want to play Xbox1 games and they don't run.

did the listing say "Microsoft xbox 360 250gb hard drive" or "250gb hard drive for Microsoft xbox 360"?
