4 out of 5 eggsGreat System

Pros: Very good developer support, even more support than the PS3 at the moment. Graphics even sometimes surpass that of the PS3. Wireless controllers are built unlike any other, they got a nice weight and feel to them. Also, Xbox LIVE is simply amazing, it's always somebody to play with and most people have a headset. 1 year standard warranty, and a 3 year RROD warranty.

Cons: Obviously the RROD (Red Ring of Death) is the only main gripe I have with the 360, although I hear it has been contained and pretty much reduced due to the arcades being designed slightly different than the older 360's which carried the botched hardware design.

Other Thoughts: To the guy(s) making the comments about buying a PS3, I laugh at you. I just sold my 40GB PS3 and bought 360 games with the money, best decision of my life. The Ps3 virtually has nothing interesting other than MGS4, everything else is going through delay after delay. So get a 360, you'll never look back!

3 out of 5 eggs

Pros: The 360 has a very nice GUI that is very user friendly. The selection of games for the 360 is also very nice. The removable HD is a nice feature as well as the easy setup/take down. I've taken my 360 all over the place with no problem. Xbox live has a very nice online community and their are lots of things that are only features of 360 games such as achievements. For the most part the 360 has many nice features but...

Cons: The hardware configuration in the 360 is absolutely ridiculous. I've taken apart and fixed many 360's and Microsoft did a terrible job at building the 360. A major problem with the 360's is that they overheat frequently due to the fan speed and the fact that the two processors, which both generate an immense amount of heat, are placed directly underneath the CD drive which allows the buildup of heat and eventually, the melting of the solder on the main board. Also, the thermal grease that is applied prior to the installation of a heat sink onto the processors is totally skimped by Microsoft. That's problem # 1. The 360 has a 22% failure rate, mostly due to the heat, but the disk drives are also known to fail. I've seen many broken disk drives. Microsoft overprices their accessory's an immense amount. A wireless adapter that should cost no more than $50 costs $100. Microsoft costumer support is awful. I've spent too mush time talking to those idiots. Honestly Buy a PS3 if you want con.

Other Thoughts: a reliable system.

The 360 is easy to configure, you can talk to friends, recover your gamer tag if you lose your Xbox somehow. You can also stream media from your computer to your TV

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: Well, this system is perfect since my last one died. I don't have to get one with a HD because I still have my last one and I can now get it with HDMI output without getting an Elite. Hopefully I won't have to worry about the RRoD with the new GPU heatsink.

Cons: If Microsoft would have put a better heatsink on the GPU three years ago we wouldn't have had the RRoD problem and everyone wouldn't hate Xbox360 so much.

Other Thoughts: Everything about the 360 is great except for the hardware reliability up till now. The games, user interface, and aesthetics are all awesome.

4 out of 5 eggsLove it so far

Pros: The Xbox360 has good graphics, a more expansive library than ps3 or wii, and it's really cheap now. The 256 mb memory card is more than enough for storing save files (most save files are only 10-20 kb), but if you want to download stuff off xbox live, go for the 20gb model. Oh, and it also comes with a wireless controller. The controllers are easy to use, and they're small.

Cons: The hard drives are way too expensive for this machine. The graphics aren't as good as the ps3's, and it has the rrod curse. I've only had mine for a day, and it hasn't died yet, but it's backed by a 3 year warranty so far.

Other Thoughts: It's worth what you pay for it. If the ps3 had more games for it, I probably would have just waited and bought that instead, but I'll stick with this machine for now.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing.

Pros: Been building PCs and didnt bother getting any of the next gen consoles, but I couldnt pass this up. The 360 is really just great. Runs cool with the new copperheatpipes (still suggest you get some cooler for it to be safe). Been playing GTA 4 all day since I got it. Has room for expandability (HDD ect).

Cons: None.

5 out of 5 eggsAwesome

Pros: Very good, stable xbox 360. I have had an xbox 360 premium for launch in 2005, it just broke not too long ago, and I decided to repair it with an xclamp mod. It did not work, and my warranty was void. I bought one of these from a store with a large W, same one as here. So far its 1.-running alot cooler 2.-quieter, 3.-more stable as a whole. So yes, if you need a cheap, but VERY GOOD xbox 360, the Arcade is the way to go.

Cons: Nothing, if your ever breaks just call 18004699269

4 out of 5 eggsStable System For Me

Pros: Bought this system @ launch and have had no overheating or RROD problems. I keep it upright and in a open air setting, not stuffed in a media cabinet.
The system is stable and I have spent 100s of hours playing some great gaming titles.
The media extender to play all your computers videos and audio files works perfectly.
Netflix streaming video support coming this fall ads even more value to this console.

Cons: Only problems I've had is some disc read errors that are fixed with a system restart. These occur few and far between and I think every console I've ever owned has had a quirk like this in some way.

Other Thoughts: Buy it, at 200$ you cannot go wrong.
Picking a second one up when I get a new LCD for my office.

5 out of 5 eggsBig difference from Original 360

Pros: Well, it's been a few months, and no disk read errors at all (like my previously owned now broken 360).
By far the best online experience compared to PS3 and Wii (ive played all). Many more great games aswell. Without a doubt, the best system out there.

Cons: No color selection :(

2 out of 5 eggsNot The Best By A Long Shot

Pros: I like the style of the 360. It has a couple of good games.
The User interface is a little bit confusing but cool.
There were a couple of problems I had though....

Cons: I have had this 360 for about 2 and a half weeks. I had to send it back due to the motherboard Failure or "RROD". The customer service was not the best, to the point that I actually had to hang up once. ( They forgot about me! ) This would be my 6th Xbox 360 in one year. After doing a little research I have decided that owning a Playstation 3 or a Wii may be a better choice.

*WARNING: once the 3 year warranty or the 360 is up you will have to pay for any RROD problems or any errors( around $140 dollars a pop ).

You do have to pay for Xbox live( $50.00 a year) just to play online and that can add up after a while.

WARNING: Do not use credit card!

I have bought a PS3 because of the Free online play and demos and things like that. The PS3 is also cheaper too, once you compare the two consoles(Xbox360 and PS3).
The Fan is loud. Not good for watching movies.
If you have TONS of money to wast go for the 360.

Other Thoughts: I have found that the 360 may not be the better choice not that you can't even get HD DVDs anymore. I will warn any buddy who wants a 360, you will be paying more then you think. I have found that the PS3 is a better choice for HD Movies and gaming. You won't have any problems with the ps3 too.( going on 1 week and no problem yet.)

5 out of 5 eggsThe Best out There

Pros: I bought this console Back when it was known as the Core Console. I bought it at launch, used the S*** out of it and today still works like the day I took it out of the box. Bought the 20GB HDD 6 months later and still am nowhere near maxed it out. Xbox live is awsome and it worth $50 a year!

Cons: Wish it Came with a HDD

Other Thoughts: I thinks its How you use your console and where you store it as to what its future brings. Just take care of it dont abuse it and I think you can enjoy a long expierence with you 360. I still am Almost 3 years Later.
