  • Excerpt: The new Xbox 360 Slim ($300) has landed. A decidedly Alienware-ish looking console, the Xbox 360 Slim has called 1-800-Evil-Jenny and dropped the weight with a slimmer, glossy-black case design that features touch-sensitive buttons (sounds a bit like Xbox and PS3 have swapped designers), “whisper” quiet fan that generates less noise than its wind-tunnel predecessor, 45nm chipset, 2.4Ghz 802.11n Wi-Fi (finally), 5 USB ports, 250GB removable hard drive, Xbox Kinect port...

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim

CNET
4 May 2011
  • Summary: Though the new Xbox 360 certainly addresses most of the concerns we've had with the versions before it, we don't think it warrants a purchase if you already own an Xbox 360 in working order with an HDMI-out port and a hard drive.
  • Pros: Sleeker design; 17 percent smaller; much quieter operation; better cooling; touch-sensitive power and disc tray; 250GB hard drive; built-in Wi-Fi; five USB ports; dedicated Kinect port; onboard optical digital audio.
  • Cons: The hard drive is still proprietary; controller on D-pad remains unchanged; cumbersome power block; renders existing faceplates useless; no cables for HD gaming out of the box.

Hands-On: The New Xbox 360 S “Slim” Review

homeserverland.com
6 July 2010
  • Conclusion: I think Microsoft did a great job with the new Xbox design. At the end of the day the Xbox 360 is not just a gaming console but an entertainment system. The Xbox Live service offers countless games, movies streaming and renting, social media integration (Facebook, Twitter) and even complete game downloads (games on demand). Therefore, the console noise was a major factor and I can see how the quitter sound, 250GB HDD and built-in wireless-N are a great selling point.
  • Pros: Smaller and sleeker chassis, Runs cooler and is much quieter, Includes a huge 250GB hard drive, Built in Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n, Multifunctional entertainment device, Good price point
  • Cons: No blue-ray player, No 1000 Mbps Ethernet, No HD connectivity cables, The case is easily smudged with fingerprints

Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim Review

Digitaltrends
19 June 2010
  • Excerpt: It has been four and a half years since the original Xbox 360 was released on November 22, 2005. New bundles have come out, hard drives for consoles have jumped in capacity exponentially, and there is even a black model of the 360 out there, but at its core the console has remained the same in terms of design. When the Xbox 360 originally debuted against the Sony PlayStation 3 , it did so with somewhat similar hardware, but several less bells and whistles.
  • Pros: Good price point, Includes a 250GB hard drive., It looks cool, and it is smaller than the original, It is much quieter and runs cooler, Built in WiFi
  • Cons: An odd way to remove the hard drive that could potentially cause problems, No HD connectivity without additional purchase, No Blu-ray player, The fancy shine is easily smudged with fingerprints

4 April 2013
  • Conclusion: Lo malo: No soporta lectura de discos Blu-ray, tampoco soporta la conexión mediante Bluetooth, y no está la posibilidad de jugar con imágenes en alta definición. El resultado final: A pesar de que esta nueva versión de Xbox responde a la mayoría de las preocupaciones que tenían usuarios anteriormente, si ya es propietario de una Xbox 360, no es necesaria una actualización a esta nueva versión de la consola.
  • Pros: Lo bueno: Es una excelente consola para jugar en línea, cuenta con una extensa colección de juegos, es menos ruidoso y menos propenso a sobrecalentarse que modelos anteriores. Además, es un 17% más pequeño que su última versión, incluye un disco duro de 250GB, Wi-Fi integrado, 5 puertos USB y  1 puerto que permite la conexión para la Kinect.
  • Cons: Lo malo: No soporta lectura de discos Blu-ray, tampoco soporta la conexión mediante Bluetooth, y no está la posibilidad de jugar con imágenes en alta definición. El resultado final: A pesar de que esta nueva versión de Xbox responde a la mayoría de las preocupaciones que tenían usuarios anteriormente, si ya es propietario de una Xbox 360, no es necesaria una actualización a esta nueva versión de la consola.

Video-Review: Hands-On - die neue XBOX 360 Slim

13 September 2012
  • Excerpt: Nach dem XBOX360 Launch (in Deutschland am ) sind mittlerweile mehrere Versionen erschienen, welche der Konsole eine stetige Weiterentwicklung bescherte. War die Ur-XBOX anno 2005 noch ein ziemlicher Stromfresser und verfügte über eine Festplattenkapazität von maximal 20 Gigabyte, so sind die heutigen Versionen deutlich energieeffizienter und größer dimensioniert.

A Microsoft provou que “menos é mais”

Tech Tudo
29 November 2010
  • Conclusion: O Xbox 360 ficou mais bonito, menor, mais moderno, mas ainda não tem o drive de Blu-Ray. Esse ainda é um dos pontos fracos do aparelho e nesse quesito perde espaço para o Playstation 3. Entretanto, a aposta da Microsoft no Kinect e o novo design são as alterações necessárias para o aumento da vida útil do console. Que ele é bonito, isso ninguém duvida, mas se está mesmo livre das 3 RL´s, pelo uso da placa mãe Valhalla ou se vai vencer o duelo com o PS3, só o tempo dirá.
  • Pros: Preparado para o Kinect., Rede Wi-Fi integrada., Aquece menos., Mais silencioso.
  • Cons: Não possui o leitor de Blu-ray., Desconfiança com as 3RL´s., Troca do HD é mais trabalhosa.
