I'll make this as easy as possible and will try not to be pompous
X360 USB is as follows
1. A custom made Sata to USB convertor that is specifically designed for the Xbox 360. Sure you can get other devices but those devices are not designed for this very specific purpose.
2. It comes with the new connectivity kit (v2). Better designed and noob proof. The amount of blown v1's I saw from people shorting out the pcb or plugging in the cables the wrong way around just amazed me, although shouldn't have surprised me with the experience I have in this market. With this design you can't break it (although SOMEONE will try of course - they always do). We also updated all the connectors so we would hope cables are now plugged in the correct way around (even tho v1 had cuides to show the correct way) and there is also now an on/off power switch - so you can hot swap drives while connected to USB and in Windows. Of course modeb and eject are still there too. Version 1 Connectivity Kit on its own sells for $24 - $30 on other websites
3. It comes with a newly design HDD adapter (like X-Sata function) - again this sells for $20 - $30 ON ITS OWN by other websites.
4. Its quality. It works. It does the job as advertised. There is absolutley no research involved or hit and miss with other products. I see a few people saying "whats the point in buying this etc" - well for that person - no point at all - but i deal in business and where there is 10,000 who has no need there is always 100,000 that do have a need. If you dont need it - good for you and congrats on your modding. if you do need it then you will have certainley got your moneys worth
All other details on what this product does is listed very very clearly on its product description. If you are going to bitch at me saying you dont have time to research the product then there's not a lot I can say to that.
I hope this helps someone

So does this switch the drive to mode b automactilly?
no. you press the modeb button.
some ppl may use this with a samsung drive (without the usb) and modeb is not required
QUOTE(Tim Douglas @ Sep 6 2006, 01:40 PM)
is it easy to flash the drive using this device?
from plugging in the drive to usb and flashing using birdys flasher - id say 10 seconds tops

What is the differences between this product and the Xsata? http://www.play.com/Games/Xbox360/RTS/3-/1...ta/Product.html
The Xsata is for connecting your Xbox 360 Hard Drive to your PC. Thats it.
My post above explains everything else X360 USB does.

I see the usefulness of the Connectivity Kit portion of this package, but how does the X360 USB itself differ from any run of the mill SATA to USB connector that you can purchase anywhere on the internet for a fraction of the price?
Its not a fraction of the price when you consider we also supply a device that does the same as Xsata ($30 value) and also the Connectivity Kit V2 (v1 value was $29.95)
Also we designed this to work specifically with the Xbox360 - and we are able to give support for that product in that area - you wont get that with others - with X360 USB you are GUARANTEED it will work and you get the full kit along with it too.
Now I would say its far more appealing. if you don't think so then then good luck anyway

I know it was a different product but it comes free with this and they said they are not selling it seperatly at the moment. That is what I want a update on. The pictures show nothing of how this is going to be installed?
You are talking about the Blaster360
And you are correct the pictures do not show how it will be installed
All in good time, im working hard to get it ready for Xmas
FYI its REALLY easy

omg diveno is a bunch of cheapskapes, $10 bucks for shipping when it weighs almost nothing and they try and pull u in the $5 rebate. all i can say is fuck that. I got a $30 pci sata card that looks cool and it mite work if i could find the slax cd to get my drive into mode b.
I always laugh when ppl complain about spending a few bucks in order to save $000's
anyway my friend - you dont have to buy from Divineo - others have it in stock (however I must say $10 for 0.30kilos next day in the usa is pretty good)
in fact you dont have to buy it at all - good luck with your sata card - I wish you every success

nice tool, not that I'll be using it. Good adition for the home pirates (no offence to TX but thats what it'll mainly be used for).
I take no offence. You think the majority of the scene used my bios's and mods solely for homebrew and emulators ?

I found a similar product (and it is PLug n' Play aswell), for $19.95, so why does the Xecuter cost so much?
my post explaining how much more you get for your money answers this for you
