    GREAT CONSOLE!

    Posted
    6packmike

    This is a great system! Yes I'm a 'PS3 FanBoy' or whatever you wanna call it but one of my friends told me if you look carefully at the date it was manufacturered you'll be fine. Well I took advantage of BestBuys 18mo INTEREST FREE financing and i got an elite and some other stuff to make it the qualifying amount, 'cause personally I can pay it off in 3 months instead of 18. The customer associates understood my concern and they brought out all the xbox elites, 7, so I can see for myself that I'm getting only the FRESHEST console. THAT'S customer service. :) Sadly, there were some that were pretty old but that'st irrevelant to my review. And as always they offered me the extended warranty. I explained to them I wasn't trying to spend over the qualifying amount but when they said I have an ENTIRE MONTH from the date of purchase to come back to buy the warranty I THAT blew my mind! To me THAT'S peace of mind. Peace of mind isn't 'buy it now or never' is basically putting a 'gun to my head' while saying 'spend more money or else.' So I'm probably going to wait 'til the last week and buy that warranty seeing as how the Microsoft Warranty is only good 'til 2010. Overally, great console! Works amazing. It's still unfortunate that the RROD is still a potential problem. Just make sure you make, no not 'ask', the sales associate to physically bring out the console infront of you so you can see for yourself to check the manufacturer's date. Mine was built 9/2008. I'm good! :D

    Well folks I'm back, writing an updated reveiw of my XB elite. Unit did get hit with the RROD and all the other things all in one day 7-31-09. To be honest I figured I'm done,going to have go see BB and get another. Well folks, called Microsoft CS. Waited to be told just how unlucy I was, but take note,all was not lost, I was told unit will be fixed for free I did have the extended warranty on the unit, by way of Microsoft, They would fix or replace. Mailed from UPS store $5 to do that the box shipping free according to microsoft tracking,unit was fixed 8-6-09 and it on it way back. All i can say is that the customer service reps that i talked to well I way the one that was flustered,they were the calm ones. I was told that the repair depot replaces 156 parts everytime so that means whole new insides. Damit I'm a 60 yr old gamer,love my XB elite and here to tell you that my customer service experience with MS well just like the xbox 360 Elite my first impression second to none I will update when the box returns. Later!!

    BUYERS BEWARE

    I was pretty pumped when I heard about this great new deal, and excited that i could get two awesome games. However after i analysed the packages I was utterly disapointed when i found these to be OLD XBOX ELITES in new packaging. AKA they DO NOT HAVE THE NEW JASPER CHIPS which have a much lower fail rate and chance of RROD. Microsoft is simply trying to sell out their remaining faulty inventory before switching fully to jasper. I was surprised to see A few XENON chips among the these when i first. ( made in like 2006-2007). Just be cautious that this is not the best microsoft has availble and what your buying is second rate. If your willing of taking the risk that your console will break down in a year go ahead. The games were still a great choice but nonetheless I am going to have to pass this up until they put out a deal that carries jaspers. Better luck next time microsoft....

    Epic gaming console

    GeoGamer

    With its great game selection, including many 360-only exclusives; all games are in native high-definition; user-friendly Dashboard interface; supports wireless controllers and accessories; Xbox Live service offers online multiplayer (with matchmaking and voice chat) and content downloads for most games. Backward compatible with many--but not all--original Xbox titles; doubles as a superior digital media hub and Windows Media extender; online Marketplace allows easy purchases of minigames, add-on gaming content, high-def movies, and TV shows, yet support for next-gen HD DVD movies requires a bulky external accessory While it's neither a must-have upgrade for existing 360 owners nor as feature-packed as the PS3, the Xbox 360 Elite's combination of top-notch gaming and digital media features make it the current game console of choice.

    Better Than Expected!!

    The Xbox 360 Elite is a great console! The graphics are amazing (assuming your TV can handle them). The low refresh rate on my TV caused a few horizontal lines during game play (using the HDMI output) which wasn't very often. If I would have used the component cables I don't think I would have that problem BUT I like using the HDMI because it has the HD audio and video all in one small cable. A lot of the complaints with the Xbox's are not even Xbox problems, it's the user or other hardware. The main things to remember is to keep not only the console itself in a well ventilated area but the power supply box needs plenty of venting also. Overall great product when used with common sense!

    xbox 360

    the xbox 360 is an awesome system i have both ps3 and 360, i like the 360 more because of the online and games, xbox live marketplace is brilliant, communicating with your friends has never been easier, i like how you can rip cd's on there and then play your favorite songs while your playing any game, k now for the negative i gotta recommend that if you buy this product that you get the warranty it is so well worth it this is my 2nd elite so far sadly, but everytime it breaks i don't feel sad, i can just drive down the street to best buy and than i can just choose a brand new one everytime no hesitation just get another one and your good,

    microsoft

    it always tells me my disk has scratches even if it`s brand new, the music will cut out all the time (even though the sound fx don`t) not a grate variety of games. nothing but shooters and UN-impressive YPG`s. not the highest HD quality, only a little backwards compatible, extreme measures have to be taken with online. hackable, and allows no real online protection. wifi is low, if possible at all. bulk controls. controller needs to be charged every 5 hours. unresponsive. loud, overheats, crashes (who ever heard of a console crashing? i mean why Microsoft... why!?) this year will not be an x-box year.

    Xbox 360 Elite

    The Xbox 360 elite is slightly high in price for a video game system. I would much prefer a ps3 over the xbox 360. The ps3 can do much more than than xbox 360 is capable of doing. PS3 is a blu-ray player, which the 360 is not. Even with the copyright data the 360 is much stricter than the ps3. The 360 has halo series which is good for it, but the ps3 has other games that are just as good if not better. The internet is also free on the ps3 where 360 charges you a fee. Overall the 360 is an alright system but I would prefer the ps3 over it.

    Great system, great games, incredible deal

    For $400, the price of the Xbox 360 Elite alone, you are not only getting a great system, but also two of its best games. Halo 3 is perhaps the greatest multiplayer game ever made, and Fable II is one heck of an absorbing RPG. The average review scores for these games, from popular video game websites, are 95 (Halo 3) and 90 (Fable II) out of 100. Plus, the Xbox 360, itself, has the definitive online experience around. All in all, this is an amazing deal, and one that any gamer should seriously consider.

    customer support stinks

    Posted
    shadowhunter

    hook up instructions too vague,assumes everyone is an electrician and tv cable installler. pictures don't show much,customer service is a mine field of talking to a machine vs just getting a real person and getting your questions answered quickly.make you register and agree to their terms before they will help you. grinds horribly on start up, unit gets hot very fast. a lot of steps in programming.if i had to do over again would get a wii.not a good experience from the time i took it out of the box.

    BEST Console on the Market!

    Posted
    zzirGrizz

    Hands down this is the best console on the market. I had my xbox 360 for 2 years. People may say that it over heats easy, (which it does) but i havnt had a problem with RROD yet. They have a wide variety of games to chose from. Also since you have to pay to have Xbox Live the connection is fast and great. It also has alot of downloadable content. I have to buy a new mic about every 2-3 months, they are cheaply made. DO NOT BUY A WIRELESS MIC. They cost alot of money. and you WILL replace it.

    Great Buy

    with the elites they are less likely to get the red ring, they come with a bigger hard drive, hdmi connection, plus the main reason that makes it so good is that you get not only halo 3 the top selling game and multiplayer game on the 360 but you also have a good competitor for game of the yr with fable two. both great games i own them both, i am pickin this up do to my previous xbox goin out on me and the fact that i get a new copy of halo is even better

    DONT BUY - Old console in new box

    Posted
    FishGuy8

    These consoles DO NOT have the newest chipset (Jasper) instead they have old, outdated Zephyr or Falcon chips inside. Which DO NOT fix the Red Ring of Death. These were made in 2008 and microsoft is making it sound like they are brand new. It is simply old stock and they just repackaged it. If you want a good console I would go with the Arcade version which DOES have the Jasper chip. BUY AT YOUR OWN RISK!

    this is the new bundle for the elite systems, comes with halo 3 and fable 2, 120g hard drive so you proly wont run out of space anytime soon, comes with headset,hdmi cable, 1 black controller. the online play is def better than the ps3, only cause its free... but everything else is good, plus it got the new chip in it so it is less likely to overheat

    Elite Enough?

    Posted
    MiST3RKiLLZ

    The Xbox 360 has three versions, arcade, pro, and then there's this piece of work, THE ELITE! this is definitely my favorite of the three types, for one it comes with a good hard drive with lots of storage space, and its BLACK!!! The only con is that it is a pretty penny, but if you have it it is definitely worth it.

    I am stoked that this console is going to come out with two games that will have some MAJOR play in them. I can't wait to tell people about this sweet deal. If I had to go back again and buy this system all over again I would without one single bit of hesitation. This is awesome. Great JOB Microsoft!!!

    This is a totally killer deal. YOU get two RIDICULOUS games that totally deserved the game of the year awards, and a 120gb system. Does it get much better then that? This is a GR8T deal, I would recommend this to any one who wants more for there money!!!!

    This console looks promising because it comeswith Halo 3 & Fable 2 for free each about $40 saving you about $80. Also get a Best Buy warranty for the Red Rings of Death or E74. With the Best Buy Extended wanrranty you have bno worries about the console for it is covered.
