Why would you want one of these? Instead of taking your whole Xbox with you, just save all your games on the Memory Unit and you save your back from getting hurt.
Plus this is my favourite part, you can also take your Xbox Live account with you (if you have one). All you do is copy it from your HDD to the Memory Unit, take it to another Xbox and copy it onto the HDD! Simple!

"Why the hell would I need a memory card?!?! The Xbox has a hard disk!"
I've thought this one before, but the answer is simple. You can't take the hard disk with you.
At 8MB, the Xbox Official Memory Unit is larger than many other memory units for other consoles, being quadruple the Playstation memory card's size. However, this size pales in comparison with an 8 GIG hard disk. Hence the only real problem with the unit.
Saves are all this is really any good for. Developers have taken advantage of the huge Xbox storage on their replays, so you will only fit a couple of these on there.
The units are Plug-and-Play, meaning you can add and remove them without turning the Xbox off, but of course never removing them during a save. They can be named, so that your Memory Unit isn't confused with another, essential for those late night drunk sessions when you can barely see the TV, let alone play games.
And finally, no you can't put music on them. They're too small, and the Xbox has no copy option on the music saved.
Overall, they are functional, but as it turns out that function is slightly limited.

This product allows you to swap saved games between XBox's, so you can play your saved games at your mates house (providing they have an XBox). 8MB should be enough spave for at least 10 games. The only down thing is, is that if you want to swap saved games to your friends XBox, then you have to pay for this memory card, even though you already have a built in hard drive.

Well whats the point in one of these when the X-box has a hard drive? Simple take your profile round to your mates so you brag how good you are then prove it!
And that's it really...its a memeory card what more can I say? Doesn't improve graphice or games, doesn't give you any cheats, just saves games on it instead of the hard drive.
