Your Guide to Xbox 360 USB Drives

Now that you can use a standard USB flash or hard drive with your Xbox 360 it's time to figure out which is the best to use.

Fortunately, Rooster Teeth's Achievement Hunters rounded up a bunch of drives to test out how quickly they allow you to install games on them and if they impact gameplay.


What they discovered is that while the time it takes to install Borderlands can vary greatly, the actually gameplay experience was about the same on everything they tested.

But still, you don't want to sit around waiting 20 minutes for Borderlands to install on your flashdrive when you can wait just five, right? Then check out their results, or watch the video.

Here's the full rundown
Xbox HD: 5 minutes, 25 seconds
Sandisk flashdrive: 16 minutes, 10 seconds
Sandisk Cruzer: 21 minutes, 58 seconds
PNY 16: 8 minutes, 38 seconds
