I don't understand all the hate. Depending on your current situation each console will serve a purpose. I have pretty much all of them and have jumped back and forth. I started with the Series S and for the price point it's a great value. Yes you do not get all the features of the Series X or PS5 but for most "everyday" people it works just fine. I used mine for about 1.5-2 yrs b/f I upgraded to the Series X. It was super nice taking it on vacation or over to a friends place b/c of its size. Most of my friends only have a 1080p tv so it didn't matter. Both of my older daughters have used it in their bedrooms. They don't care if it's 1080p or 4k or whatever. As long as there is a fun game on it then it's all good.
