What experts liked
Select games are rendered in true 4K UHD. Has a built in 4K Blu ray player. More powerful CPU and GPU means better graphics,faster loading times and all around better game play experience compared to the competition.
- BestReviews
4K is the name of the game, and this machine does a sterling job of serving up games at the fabled 3840 x 2160-pixel resolution.
- Trusted Reviews
Thankfully here we’re happy to report that the Xbox One X performs exactly as advertised: Games look great across the board. Whether you’re using a 1080p TV with the Xbox One X or playing in 4K HDR, games look fantastic on the next-gen console.
- Tech Radar
The graphical performance of the Xbox One X is around the six teraflop mark, which means it has a little less raw power than an Nvidia GTX 1070 desktop graphics card, or a little more than an AMD RX 480. That means the Xbox One X has more than 4.5 times the graphical performance of the original Xbox One.
- Digital Trends
The performance is phenomenal. We've used the 4K-enabled PS4 Pro since it was released at the back-end of 2016 and it simply cannot compare to what the Xbox One X offers, especially with graphically demanding games.

It is the only console on the market that consistently presents games in native 4K HDR and, considering the rapid growth of Ultra HD TV adoption, its potential user base has never been higher.

The Xbox One X is a powerful step-up console that supports 4K, HDR and offers improved visuals and framerates for certain games.
- CNET
There were no setup issues or compatibility problems with getting the X to display at 4K and with HDR enabled either, with the system very much plug and play in that regard just like the S that preceded it. We were automatically prompted to enable a 4K resolution and HDR can be turned on and off simply in the options menu of the console.

On the inside of the Xbox One X is where things get really exciting. The impressive AMD Polaris GPU with 6 teraflops of computing power gives you additional power for playing your favorite 4K titles.

The real promise of the Xbox One X is “true 4K” gaming. Most games made for the Xbox One are designed for 1080p TVs, which have a quarter of the pixels found on a new 4K TV. The Xbox One X is more than four times faster than the original Xbox One, so it’s capable of 4K gaming.

Xbox One X does a great job acting as a media player, with access to most of the major movie and TV streaming services.
- PC World
Like the One S before it, the One X is now the most appealing console for home theater enthusiasts thanks to its ultra-HD Blu-ray drive and Dolby Atmos audio support. That ability to play 4K movies off of physical media is something the competing PS4 Pro strangely doesn’t offer.

What experts didn't like
Does things better than Xbox One S, but doesn't do anything different. Most expensive console on the market.
- BestReviews
Speaking of little boxes, the 1TB hard disk is laughably small in an age where 4K games weigh in at over 100GB. You’re going to want to invest in an external USB hard disk if you don’t want to have to keep deleting games to make space for others.
- Trusted Reviews
The Xbox One X hard drive, which currently is locked at 1TB, fills up faster now that most games require 4K texture packs.
- Tech Radar
Microsoft has marketed the One X as a console for 4K gamers so, unsurprisingly, if you don’t have a 4K TV, you won't get the full experience.
- Tech Advisor

The Xbox One X is a very pricey package.
- Pocket-lint

At $500, it's the most expensive game console right now.
- CNET
Though the One X’s main selling point revolves around its impressive 4K and HDR capabilities – which requires you to have a compatible TV and other accessories in order to fully realize its potential.

You need external storage, 1TB isn’t enough.
- The Verge

1 TB hard drive is not prepared for the realities of modern gaming.
- PC World
The One X has a one-terabyte internal hard drive (with no larger option), but at this rate that’s going to be consumed just as quickly as the original Xbox One’s 500GB. Storage space can be easily expanded with any USB hard drive, but if you don’t already own one that’s an extra expense you have to account for on top of this already premium-priced console.

Requires a 4K TV to get the most out of it.
