    So, the Original Xbox one used a Sata-II interface. Can anyone tell me if the internal Sata connection has actually been updated to Sata-III on the Xbox One S or are they just using a Sata-III drive on the same Sata-II connection?

    Seriously, Does no one know this? If it is a Sata III I want to replace the internal drive, If it is still only Sata-II then it is not worth it

    Does anyone at least have a suggestion of another forum that I should post this question to?

    You could search on iFixit. Maybe they have done a teardown and have some info.

    They have a teardown, and it lists the Drive itself as Sata-III, but says nothing about the actual interface. HAs anyone put an SSD in an Xbox One S?

    I really want to know also because I hate being able to hear the hard drive clicking in the Xbox

    If you use an external SSD it will only occasionally invoke the internal HDD like a cold start (so it boots the OS) or caching data when browsing the store but that's about it.

    The internal SATA speed is largely irrelevant, USB3 tops out at 5Gbps which is just a little under the 6Gbps of SATA-III and SSD's over USB3 out-perform the internal Xbox drive.

    Unless that noise is absolutely driving you mad, there is little reason to stick an SSD in there but go ahead if you feel like it, it wont make any difference if the SSD is SATA3 and the interface is still SATA2.

    Maybe the fact is, no one knows for sure. I would lean to SATA 3 but, I would be only guessing.
