    I have an older Xbox 360 20Gb hard drive (HD) model and purchased this kit to upgrade the disk size. This is a GREAT value IMHO.

    While I don’t need the headset nor ethernet cable, they will be used by others in my family. The bonus is the 3-Month Xbox Live Gold membership card included in this kit (a $19.99 value).

    Unfortunately, the kit does not come with the cable and software disk required to copy the information from my existing 20Gb HD to the new 60Gb HD.

    If you have a Xbox 360 with a 20Gb HD, Microsoft wants you to buy the 120Gb HD upgrade, which DOES come with a transfer cable. For me, it wasn’t worth the extra $50 for the 120Gb HD (you can find it here at Amazon for $134.99). This kit is at the right price point for me and includes enough disk space for my needs. If you DO own an arcade version of the 360, you can get a 20Gb HD from MS for less money. I’d recommend this instead because you will find, as I did, if you intend to download many Arcade titles OR simply want to install more than ONE game to your hard drive, you need more than 20Gb IMHO. And you are going to want a Xbox Live Gold account, at least try it out for more than the 30 days you get when you first get the console. Again, my humble opinion.

    Fortunately, you can get this “Xbox 360 Data Migration Kit” in one of two ways;

    1) Find one on Ebay or Craigslist. Search for “Xbox 360 Data Migration Kit” and you will find many for sale. Expect to pay $20-$40. You may find it for less but there appears to be a number of folks wishing to corner the market on these things (I’m guessing for pure profit during the holidays). I paid $20 for mine found on craigslist. I intend to resell it on Ebay for at least what I paid for it (there were 12 sold this weekend on ebay alone with at least 26 others to bid on!).

    2) Get it for free from Microsoft! As the user above reported, you can call MS and ask for one, they will send you one. Or, you can go to xbox dot com, search for the xbox data migration kit as shown above, click on the “How to obtain the Xbox 360 Data Migration Kit” link. You’ll have to click on a couple of links to get to the final page as Amazon won’t let me include the actual links in this review…

    Go to the bottom of the page to “Related Links” and click on the “How to get your free Transfer Cable” link. Fill out the form and where it asks for the “new console serial number” write “on order”. Mail it in and wait a few weeks. (update; I mailed the form on 11/21/08 and rec’d the kit on 12/11/08.)

    I didn’t want to wait a few weeks, hence the craigslist purchase.

    I am perfectly happy with my 60Gb Starter Kit purchase. I copied the data from my old HD (took about an hour – it was FULL!), connected the new drive in place of the old one and everything works great.

    If you don’t have an Xbox Live Gold account yet, this is an excellent way to “test drive” the service while giving your 360 an needed disk upgrade. Particularly if you plan to stream Netflix movies, install games to the hard drive (available now with the “New Xbox Experience” upgrade), rip more music to it, or just need more room to download Arcade titles.

    XBox 360 Starter Pack is a MUST, January 13, 2009

    This is a great starter pack. If you were someone who purchased the XBOX360 Arcade, this is a great addition for the recreational gamer. The 60GB hard drive offers plenty of space to store saved game data, music, movies, pics, and anything else you feel like putting on it. The headset is just the standard XBOX360 headset which does work, but if you dont like the 90’s Walkman design, then I would highly recommend buying the wireless one that XBOX has available. Now to the best part of the starter pack, XBox Live. XBox Live is the online domain that hundreds of thousands of XBox users are connected by. With XBox Live you can play games online with friends, send messages, chat via headset, or simply play online with random people. I recommend to any XBox customer to invest in XBox Live because it takes the gaming experience to a completely different level.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    This review is from: Xbox 360 60GB LIVE Starter Pack (Accessory)

    I purchased this as I was still using the 20GB hard drive that came with my X-Box 360 when I bought it many years ago. I finally decided to upgrade to a slightly larger hard drive and I thought this package would be do the trick. I did not want/need the headphones or the Ethernet cable; but the hard drive and the three months of X-Box Live for around $60 looked good.

    When I got the product, I was able to snap the hard drive on top of my X-Box 360 and start playing…but when I looked at the card for the three months of X-box Live, it says the code must be redeemed by June 2009!!! I bought this in March 2012!

    I quickly contacted Amazon about the deceptive description as you can see from read the product description on this page, the three months of X-Box Live is listed as a major selling point for this product. While chatting with Amazon, I was hoping they would be able to make this right by crediting my account for the cost of three months of X-Box Live or a minimum credit my account $10 for my troubles. Nope, just a representative telling me that she will “note my concern in the product inventory” and that I could send the whole thing back, but there was some question on that as I had already opened it. As I said, I’m happy with the hard drive, just not with lied to about what I’m buying from Amazon.
    Buying products on-line is all about trust in the description of the product being accurate as you cannot actually look at the product so you are let as the mercy of the on-line seller. I have been an loyal buyer of Amazon products going back to when they only sold books and have never bought a product with such a deceptive description. I might have to return to buying from Brick and Mortar stores so I at least know what I’m buying.

    5/5 stars for the Hard Drive
    1/5 for a pre-expired X-Box Live Card.
