    Great trade

    I had been using an original Xbox 360 (the big white one) for about 6 years and figured it was time to upgrade. Come to find out Best Buy was running a special on used game trades. So, I took in about 3-4 games and my old console and traded up. It ended up only costing me $80 to bring this bad boy home and I'm very pleased. Everyone always told me the newer consoles were quieter, but I still can't believe how quiet this actually is. The only downside to buying this model is the fact that it only comes with 4GBs of storage. I was used to 20GBs on my old console, but was able to hit that mark on this one with a 16GB flash/thumb drive. Sure it's not the 250GBs you can get with a more expensive unit, but it works just fine for me. There's always the option of adding a hard drive later. Bottom line, if you're on a budget, but need a new console, this is the way to go. You get the same manufacturers warranty regardless of whether you go with new console or a refurbished console. It was a no-brainier for me. Keep in mind that flash drives can be picked up very cheap, you DO NOT have to buy a Microsoft branded flash drive to use it with this console.

    Great price but didn't work

    I purchased this refurbished model thinking that everything would be tested out and fixed. I hooked it up and it said open tray even when we put a game in. We took it to the local best buy and tried to either exchange it or return it. The customer service rep tested it and it didn't work. The tray was very loose and wouldn't read the game. He asked the manager and said that we had to call the number, wait 5 days for them to send a box, send the box back, have them fixed it, then they would send a new one. Using his math, it would take over 3 weeks to get an xbox. I asked to talk to the manager and he said that he already talked to him and there was nothing I could do but send it in. We went to the car and read the fine print which said we could return or exchange it in any local best buy. So we went back in and they tried saying that we couldn't. We had to find other managers to ok the return. Needless to say I had a bad experience with the return policy/product. Having to send it back and wait about 3 weeks for another xbox should not be the solution. Disappointed with the customer services and product. I would just spend the extra $20 for a new one.

    Great Media Center

    Replaced my Comcast cable box with this Xbox 360 (4GB) and I am able to view live HDTV through the Windows Media Center app using my Windows 7 PC and HDHomerun Prime with a Comcast Cable Card installed (You can also use an HD antenna for local programing with the HDHomerun Prime). It will pay for itself in a year. The Xfinity App also provides On-Demand Content which was a bonus. Kids are able to pay games as well, but with the limited hard drive (4GB) there is not much room left for gaming so purchase the 250 GB version if you also plan to game. (Note: A free Xbox Live account is needed, but no annual subscription is needed for using the Windows Media Center app or the Xfinity App. An Xbox Live Annual Subscription is needed for multi-player online gaming.)

    DO NOT BUY!

    I am normally not one to write a review but I feel so strongly about this. DO NOT BUY!!! I bought our Refurbished model on sale for a Christmas present. It worked for 3 months and then would not connect to Xbox Live. Since Best Buy doesn't warranty the refurbished models the same way that they do the new ones, I sent to Xbox who would also not fix it saying that it had been "tampered with". When I got it back, it won't even turn on. Stay away from Xbox and Refurbished Best Buy models! Not a good deal for the money, just pay the extra for the new one.

    X-Box is a great alternative to buying an HDTV

    I went to Best Buy to see about getting a ROKU. I was informed that they can only be connected to HDTV's and there are no adaptors for the old-school ones. The sales-person recommended X-Box because it does everything ROKU does, plus it plays DVD's and theres the option to play games. We never use it for games but it's so awesome for everything we do use it for, we have never regretted purchasing it.

    Lost my last 360 to the red circle of death. I got the 4 year warranty with this refurbished unit. That should take care of that problem. My sons are happy as can be with the replacement.

    I have really enjoyed this, a lot more than I thought I would since it is refurbished. I ended up playing for almost 24 hours straight one weekend without even realizing it! Have had no issues with it at all.

    Xbox 360 is an amazing system with a wide variety for all gamers. Plays dvd's and has a ton of extra features. High quality. On drawback is that u have to subscribe to Xbox live for additional features which is an extra fee

    Bought this to play some fighting games. It's now the standard for fighting games and classics like ultimate marvel vs capcom 3 will never see another release on any other system.

    I upgraded from an old 360 but didn't want to lay out the $ for a new model. This was a great compromise. It is like new to me.
