Excerpt: By now we should all already know that the Xbox 360 does not matter which version it is it will brake down pretty quick. I bought a warranty for a year and the Xbox 360 gave me a red ring not only that it took about a month for the whole process of getting mine (or what I think it was) back I got a horrid customer service. Most people get an Xbox 360 because it is more affordable than the Playstation 3.
When it works, it's GREAT! The other 90% of the time. 3 lights..

Excerpt: I'm giving the XBox a 2 because just about everyone I know who has one has the 3 light problem with their system. The system is AWESOME when it works. Graphics are great, sound quality good, games are fantastic.. But how can anyone enjoy it, when the system keeps breaking down. My system is off for repair so we'll see how it works when it gets back. According to Microsoft, repair time is 3 weeks including shipping time..
Excerpt: Well for the frist three or four years you xbox 360 pro might be fine but sooner or later from personal experance they ALL die. I have seen four die infront of me, and i would estimate between thirty and fourty xbox's have crashed in my town (from people i know) scence their release. The first thing about the Xbox is it game types and variety of games compared to the ps3 and other systems. The Xbox has not only the most; but the best games.
Excerpt: When I got this Xbox 360 when it first came out I was amazed by the graphics. All the games played well and they were better quality then my last system (gamecube). After about a 6 months I got the red ring of death wicth are three red rings around the power button. I then wacth on you tube on how to fix it and found a way. It was done by opening up the xbox 360 and putting pennies wrapped in tape between the motherboard and the video chip.
Warranty service is frustrating and had problems right away

Excerpt: I had excellent luck with my original Xbox -no problems, so I thought I would put out the money for the 360. Big Mistake! After about 8 hours of easy going gaming (never more than an hour at a time), the thing started turning off and rebooting. I called customer service and the guy was nice, but all he could do was put me on hold and read off a manual. He didn't seem to really know anything. He decided I should send it in. We had to wait for the box to arrive, pack...
Excerpt: I bought this and i was somewhat disappointed. i thought it was the greatest thing in the wolrd but after a while that belief died. The price was pretty good because i got it during a special deal where i got a few games with it. However, i wouldnt buy it if it was at its orginal price. It has no blu-ray so i was saddened by that. THe harddrive is practically nothing, 4GB is nothing. YOu cant put anything. It was user friendly which i liked.
Summary: It's good enough and worthed for the money as it's much cheaper now. But i cannot give a 5 star as this is not much more as any normal hdmi cables. It cannot answer everybody problems to graphic quality. Moreover it even doesn't support 3d as it's still with old version of HDMI. I found a cable with same price here on amazon Xbox 360 HDMI Cable [PREMIUM ] give better quality even it's not originally from microsoft.
Summary: THIS IS A TERRIBLE PRODUCT! To be honest, I loved it when it worked the six months I've had it, but recently it just died for absolutely no reason! It was working fine when I was gaming one night, then the next day I unplugged it from my laptop because I needed to bring the laptop to work and I did not want the receiver hanging off the laptop when I was not going to use it. Plugged it back in the same evening and the LED on the receiver did not want to light up anymore.
