Not perfect, but it works, nothing was broken :-)

From purchase to setup, I am pretty pleased. However the hiccups were there.
While others chose All Access, which is actually separate from this bundle offer, considered a "new model." I chose the Black Friday limited time offer, then paying in equal installments over 12 months, using Amazon Prime Visa. I did this, because I converted from Live Gold to Ultimate Access, recently, and have two years prepaid. Over two years, though, the Xbox One X bundle is actually cheaper, when considering Ultimate is two thirds of the cost. On top of that, All Access requires a Capitol One credit check, and I didn't want that in my wallet.
The order was shipped across the country, why? I don't know, I would have thought the local Amazon warehouse would have had it ready for same day delivery. When it arrived, it was raining, though no attempt was made to deliver it to the door. It was dropped 6ft over the fence. Strange, you tell them once, deliver over the fence for a soft package you weren't going to be home for, then for the rest of your life everything gets tossed over the fence, no matter what it is. Fortunately only the outer box got soaked. The rest remained dry.
Somethings I noticed. The Xbox One X was made mid 2019, yet Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is a new game bundle. There was a secondary set of circular stickers sealing the sleeve to the packaging. Also the primary box was dusty. I have a theory. Somewhere along the chain, the box was opened, and the contents replaced/changed/updated, then the bundle sleeve was added. I don't know who does this, Microsoft or Amazon.
I was disappointed that the game was a digital download, and not a disc. The item presentation suggests a disc. Still, I cannot play the game. After downloading over night, it has 11 hours left. Not everyone has gigabit.
Setting up the unit wasn't as easy as documentation suggested. The iPhone Xbox App does not use the camera, therefore you cannot use the QR code to set things up. Also because the unit was so old, there was a 700MB+ update required and this disrupted and complicated the setup. Where I could type in a code to setup the unit from my phone, it forgot after the update, and I had to do it again on reboot - the iPhone app was no longer able to participate. Also, I had to manually enter codes to add the game license and extend Xbox Live Gold, by 20 days. What ever happened to using the camera and OCR to read the codes? Oh that feature is with the QR code reader - non-existent.
I replaced my Blu-Ray player with the bundle, on a new 4K TV. I decided to reuse the HDMI High Speed 1.4 cable, already run to the previous component. This may have been the source of screen blackouts during setup. I have reseated the cable and it hasn't blackout since. But the situation has been noted.
I liked that the Xbox detected the TV was 4K and a switched over to the higher setting.
