As long as it's user replaceable

Xbox fans all over the world are already receiving their Xbox Series S / X. So it’s no surprise that teardown are starting to show up on the internet. Two of these teardown has appeared on Twitter revealing that the internal SSD drive on the Xbox Series X is a standard M2 NVME drive by Western Digital.

The good news is that it’s easy to replace! Making DYI fixes possible contrary to the Playstation 5.

It really is a common M.2 Nvme of PC that is inside the Xbox X series, took a screw and it is in your hand, I believe it is a more expensive option than the one soldered directly on the board but it will help a lot in future maintenance or maybe expansion to a bigger M.2!

What are your thoughts on user replaceable drives?
