Worth a shot. Return it if it's bullshit.

Oh and you may end up paying shitty customs. I bought something from Japan recently and Parcelforce, the effing thieves charge a £13.50 "handling charge" even though the poster has already paid shipping.

It's apparently for taking the package to customs and driving it back to the depot. Except customs and parcelforce work in the same strawberry floating building.


Thieves.

It's possible to buy a normal harddrive and put it into the Xbox 360 harddrive shell to make it a 360 harddrive. Be warned that MS might be able to ban consoles in the future for this as these harddrives have the same serial code (or something like that). It's very unlikely to happen though.

Keep in mind the only feedback I could see on the first page for the same item from that seller was negative and claimed:
"FAKE 120gb HDD, xbox1 emulator doesnt work, its a WD 1200BEVS inside, dont buy!!"

Just thought I'd let you know.

:lol: Yeah. Even if it's exempt from Import Tax they can open it to check any invoices and if they do, you get a charged about £10. :|
