Found a couple of 32gb low profile usb drives for just under $20 at Amazon. These are perfect for expanding your Xbox 360 HDD. It will support up to 2 - 32gb devices in addition to any hard drive and these low profile ones fit nicely in the back as they don't stick out 2+".

I have one of these and pulled off the Patriot swing cover:

The second drive you posted has free shipping without needing Amazon Prime or $25 worth of items, too.

I think it'd be fairly easy to find 32GB drives for greater than $20. (You have angered the Math Gods.. turn your > to a < )

I have so many 4-8 GB drives around the house but this is tempting at $20.

BBY has the SanDisk - Cruzer Fit 32GB USB Flash Drive for $5 more but if you have trade credit then it might be worth it. Although I guess you could buy a Kindle card and save $5. :)

That low-profile Sandisk flash drive looks nice. Reminds me of my Logitech wireless mouse receiver for my laptop, just a small module.

Also consider the Kingston Digital Data Traveler 32gb (costs a little more 24.xx:

16gb version of the above is only 9.99:

You may want to flip the symbol because right now it's saying greater than.

Awesome. Now find some >$40. And try SD or another forum for non-gaming specific electronics.

I am using a 4GB drive now on my 360, just because I only use it for my gamesaves and profile. I really want a 32GB because...well that's the biggest you can get. I just can't ever seem to bite the bullet due to not "needing" it. Someone want to convince me one way or the other?

Repetition in a game is NOT a bad thing, almost all games are repetitive. What matters is if YOU enjoy the game, then the repetition becomes enjoyable and doesn't feel monotonous or boring.

If you've been able to survive with just a 4gb hdd xbox, then you probably don't need it. I'd mostly likely just buy a 16 or 32 gb usb stick and use that instead of going for the 320 since you'll most likely not 'need' it
And there's always the next xbox stopping you from making the jump

If you mean a 320GB drive I already have the official one in my 360. Friend of mine won it from the microsoft reward site and gave it to me....was amazed at how nice he was that the least I could do was buy him Dead Island on Black Friday.

This USB drive is mainly for security and portability. If I go to someones house I just take the drive and am good to go or if my 360 breaks I still have all my saves. I think the lure of have 8x the storage is a "man" thing, kinda like Tim Allen on Home Improvement, more power...bigger means better.

I am going to try and hold out for a $10 32GB drive if I can.

I admit it was not a fair trade in terms of value....but he paid nothing for the drive and was not going to use it and he had been helping me with some 360 stuff anyway. The game actually cost me $8. So in reality...I paid more.....yeah that's my logic....shaddup

Sandisk Cruzer series is slow drive at 4MB/s. That is why they are so cheap. It's fine as long as it's not being used as your main storage.

Walmart in-store on the shelf has had the PNY 32GB nano for $20 for the last year. It is a faster USB drive. You can take it back for up to 90 days if your not satisfied.

I wanna get in on this math argument lol. I was always taught that the < was like an alligator wanting to eat the greater value. So the OP would be correct in stating (USB card < 20$), meaning the 20$ is greater than the cost of the USB card. I don't know if the OP edited the post already but it's current state would be correct.

I swear I remember seeing around 100$ for 256 MB in the early 2000's, and wishing I could afford one lol. Now I wouldn't touch anything less than 16gb for more than 5$ :)

Yup, that's something to consider the speed. I bought some cheap small drives, but they were just too slow for Xbox 360 use. You can use it, but it gets a little laggy loading your profile or saves. and you can't install a game to it.

Just picked up a 32gb PNY from Wal-Mart for <$20. It's a tiny, beautiful metal drive that feels like it's from the future. I plan to double my WiiU's capacity if it works. :)

Edit: It worked!

Is there a way to see what speeds different drives would run at with the 360?

The whole ">" vs "<" thing reminded me of when I was in second grade and we were learning this. We had circles we had to fill in with the appropriate symbol, and the teacher forbade us from adding any details that might make it look like Pac-Man. (It was the 1980s.)
