Teardown of the Microsoft Xbox One [Pics]

teardown1

The folks over at iFixit have torn down an Xbox One, and found that the console was fairly easy to disassemble and repair.

Microsoft Xbox One Repairability Score: 8 out of 10 (10 is easiest to repair):

  • Only a few tools are required to take the whole console apart. The opening procedure is similar to, but much easier than, any Xbox 360.
  • Once inside, a clean, no-nonsense modular design allows the drives, fan, heat sink, wireless board, and front daughterboard to be easily replaced.
  • Clips instead of screws make opening the case more difficult than necessary, but the absence of adhesive and proprietary screws helps soften the transgression.
  • The hard drive is relatively difficult to access; you’ll have to void the warranty if you’d like to upgrade/replace it.
