On my Xbox 360 I used to use a Seagate external drive, but always had the issue of the drive sometimes not turning off with the console. It was random.

I am now looking to get an external drive for the XB1, but want to make sure the drive powers down with the console. I do not use instant-on because I only play about an hour a day. Do I need to look at certain model drives or is there a setting on the console to power down external devices?

There is an option to have your X1 power down any connected external drives when it shuts down. I however am not sure where the option is located in the settings.

Any external HDD brands play better directly off the drive? I was probably going to get another Seagate, but want to make sure games play just as smooth as they do on the internal drive.
