Summary: Decent system for the price. You definitely get what you pay for. Just be very careful not to discard the order paperwork until you have fully tested the system. If the package does not contain the Hard Drive as mine didn't, expect at least a week or more for the replacement.
Pros: The system looks brand new, no scratches, etc.. HDMI hookup made connecting to my TV a breeze. Wireless controller is a big plus.
Cons: The system did not come with the 250GB hard drive. Newegg stated that I would have to send the system back for a replacement, however there's no guarantee that the replacement would include the Hard drive either.
Xbox 360 Elite Holiday Bundle with 2 games and $50 promo card
Thomas D., Newegg
20 March 2010
Pros: Xbox is awesome and the games are very fun to play.
Cons: The only con I had was with the handling of the $50 promo card. Apparently, Newegg decided to hold the promo cards for 30 days until the return period ends so people don't return the product and keep the card (which I understand... scammers suck!). However, this was not stated clearly to me. I'm ...
Summary: The trade-off of 2 games+headset really isn't worth losing the composite cable. If you're planning to use an HDMI cable anyway, or just don't care, go for this. If not, get the non-bundle elite and save yourself the money you'll be spending buying the composite cable.
Pros: 360 Elite, 2 games, wireless controller and headset. For the price + Free shipping, it's a good buy. Lego Batman and Pure are both decent games that provide at least a few hours of fun. I got this bundle with a free wireless controller, so I jumped on it. Otherwise I would have bought the non-bun...
Cons: This bundle comes with the composite cable (red, yellow, white), not the component cable (green, blue, red). Composite looks like absolute garbage, and really takes away from the graphical quality. Basically, they take away the composite cable and give you 2 games (which are cheap as hell anyway)...
Summary: This is my 5th (that's right, my 5th) X-Box 360 system. All of which were bought brand new. First one, RRoD. Second one, RRoD & Bad DVD Drive. Third One, sold due to aggravation with Micro$0ft. Fourth one, RRoD. This one, we'll see but I'm anticipating RRoD.
Pros: The new Jasper chip along with the new GPU. Comes with two games and the LEGO games are great. Haven't tried Pure yet so interested to see how that is. The 360 does come with a nice slick black design. This is my second Elite system.
Cons: It's an X-Box 360. 30% chance of failing and giving the RRoD.
Summary: Other consoles are a better deal. PC is still the best. Should be able to use a keyboard and mouse with consoles. Newegg is still awesome.
Pros: Now I have one like everyone else? There's a few good games and graphics are pretty good.
Cons: Overpriced. Loud as he11. Vibrates my entire entertainment center. No wireless included. Wireless adapter is so overpriced its funny. Cost $$$ to play online. No dedicated servers, what? Can only play online vs other people that have xbox. More than one person can't play online at the same time, ...
Summary: Any talk of the 360 having a more "awesome" gameplay experience than the PS3 is bogus. Both consoles are essentially the same great level of play - though the 360 does have more titles. But what good are the extra titles if you have an almost 50-50 chance of getting the RRoD?
Pros: Great titles, streaming video, and Zune compatibility
Summary: The two games included in this pack are actually together in one case (or maybe one disk), so if you planning on selling them like I was it wont sell for too much. There is no HDMI cable like I said in cons. Also missing is the AV adapter that is suppose to give you an optical port.
Pros: This console has gone down in price since it was first introduced but so has its competitors. Its colored in nice Satin black, has a 120 gb Hard drive, has plenty of exclusive titles such as Gears of War, and a very friendly user interface. You can also hookup xbox to your media center PCs and vi...
Cons: 1. Loud: I thought M$ fixed this problem because of the overwhelming complains they get about the flaws of the original models. Nope, this machine still sounds like a tornado in a quiet room. 2. Lack of Out of box experience: So I wanted to hook it up with my Logitech z-5500s, and realized that t...
Summary: This is, in my opinion, the best console on the market..........when it works.
Pros: NewEgg is amazing on customer service. This console looks great and is usually top notch.
Cons: I bought this one to replace my RROD launch date 360. I tried to repair it with no luck. After 2 weeks and approx. 6 hours of play time, I get an error 74 on this console. Good news is it is within my 30 day return window, so I don't have to deal with Microsoft.
