HI

THANKS FOR LOOKING AT MY GUIDE-REVIEW THIS IS GOING TO BE AS HONEST AS I CAN BE ABOUT A PRODUCT THAT I HAVE TESTED FOR ROUGHLY 6 HOURS A DAY FOR THE LAST MONTH LOL :-)

1ST THINGS 1ST DO NOT BUY A XBOX 360 FROM EBAY I REPEAT FOR ALL THOSE THAT ARE SERIUOUS ABOUT BUYING ONE AND THINK ITLL BE OK

------DO NOT BUY A XBOX 360 FROM EBAY-------------

UNLESS YOU GET A GOOD DEAL AND SAY 6 GAMES AND A CONSOLE FOR 200--225 QUID AS THE GAMES ARE ALOT OF MONEY SO YOULL PROABLY GET YOUR MONEYS WORTH OUT OF THE GAMES IF YOUR CONSOLE BREAKS

BREAKS YOU MIGHT SAY WHY WOULD IT??? WELL LET ME PUT IT THIS WAY IAM ON MY 3RD XBOX 360 IN A MONTH AND TOUCH WOOD THIS ONE WILL BE OK I HAVENT MISTREATED IT IN ANYWAY AND YOU CAN IMAGINE IF YOU SPEND 350 POUND ON SOMETHING IN A SHOP WHEN YOU GET IT HOME YOUR GOING TO LOOK AFTER IT. I PUT IT IN A WELL VENTILATED AREA I EVEN HAD A NYKO INTERCOOLER RUNNING AS I READ THEY CAN GET HOT WITHOUT ONE I ALSO HAVE AIRCONDITIONING SO MY ROOMS NEVER HOT ANYWAY I EVEN COVERED THE CONSOLE WHY IT WASNT IN USE TO PROTECT IT FROM THE DUST ETC LOL IT WAS PROPER LOOKED AFTER

BUT AFTER 3 DAYS IT CAME UP SYSTEM ERROR AND THE RED LIGHTS OF DOOM CAME UP ON THE FRONT OF THE CONSOLE I RANG MICROSOFT AND THEY SAID TAKE IT BACK STRAIGHT AWAY (WHICH YOU WOULDNT BE ABLE TO DO FROM EBAY) I TOOK IT BACK AND GOT ANOTHER 1 THEN ASFETR 3 DAYS AGAIN THIS ONE DECIDED TO BREAK THE SAME MESSAGE E68 SYSTEM ERROR

I LOOKED THIS UP ON THE INTERNET AND THIS IS A PROBLEM THAT HAPPENDS BETWEEN THE HARDRIVE AND THE 360 ITSELF SOMETIMES IT CAN BE FIXED BY RE CONNECTING THE HARDRIVE BUT FOR ME THIS DIDNT WORK SO AGAIN OFF I WENT TO MY LOCAL GAME SHOP

I GOT ANOTHER ONE STRAIGHT AWAY (WELL ONCE ID SHOWN THE MY DIGITAL CAMERA WITH THE PICS OF IT SAYING SYSTEM ERROR ETC) AND THIS ONE HAS BEEN WORKING FINE.

ALSO IT SAYS IN THE MANAUL IN VERY SMALL PRINT THAT IF YOU MOVE THE CONSOLE WITH A GAME IN THE DRIVE WHILE THE CONSOLE IS ON OR IFF IT WILL MAKE YOUR WARRANTY INVALID!!THE HUY FROM THE SHOP WARNED ME ABOUT THIS AND SAID THE DISC SCRATCHES THE INSIDE OF THE CONSOLE AND MAKES IT OBVIOUS THUS MAKING YOUR NICE WARRANTY INVALID

SO DO NOT BUY ONE FROM EBAY COME ON PEOPLE THIS IS A ALOT OF MONEY WHY NOT BUY ONE WITH A GUARANTEE FROM A SHOP ARGOS EVEN OFFER A 3 YEAR BREAKDOWN COVER FOR 30 POUND WHICH IS HALF THE PRICE OF THE MICROSOFT ONE

WHAT ABOUT THE CONSOLE YOU ASK

WELL HONESTLY ITS PRETTY DAM GOOD AND THE PS3 WILL HAVE ITS WORK CUT OUT I MEAN GAMES ARE SO ADDICTIVE YOU FIND YOURSELF SITTING THERE FOR HOURS THEN LOOKING UP AND SEEING THAT 4 HOURS HAVE GONE

XBOX LIVE IS WHAT GETS ME ITS AMAZING IVE BEEN PLAYING BATTLEFIELD 2 AND YOU CAN HAVE 24 PLAYERS ONLINE 12 A TEAM WAGING WAR ON EACH OTHER VIA TANKS HELICOPTERS ETC THE GRAPHICS ARE SO GOOD ESPEACIALLY VIA HD TELLYS

YOU MAY THINK THE XBOX HAS A SMALL HARDRIVE COMPARED TO SONYS 60 GB WELL THATS WHERE YOUR WRONG CHECK THIS OUT

DO A WEB SEARCH FOR A PROGRAM CALLED MEDIA CONNECT 2 ITS A MICROSOFT PROGRAM FOR YOUR WINDOWS XP COMPUTER WITH THIS INSTALLED YOU CAN NOW ACCESS ALL THE MUSIC AND AND HOME PICTURES FROM YOUR HOME COMPUTERS HARDRIVE VIA WIRELESS CONNECTION ITS VERY EASSY TO SETUP AND YOU CAN HAVE IT ALLWYAS RUNNING SO THAT BASICALLY YOUR XBOX360 NOW HAS AN EXTERNAL WIRELESS HARDRIVE OF WHATEVER CAPACITY YOUR HARDRIVE IS MINES 160 GIG SO IMAGINE THAT COMPARED TO SONYS 60 GIG :-)

YOU COULD EVEN TAKE IT A STEP FURTHER AND CONNECT VIA A WINDOWS MEDIA XP COMPUTER AND EVEN STREAM LIVE TV OR VIDEOS FROM YOUR COMPUTER :-) ALLTHOUGH I CANT COMENT ON THIS AS I HAVENT TRYED IT BUT I DO HAVE MEDIA CONNECT RUNNING WITH MY XBOX 360 BEING ALLOWED TO ACCESS MY COMPUTERS FOLDERS AND IT STREAMS MUSIC PERFECTLY WITH NO GLITCHES AT ALL ITS GREAT

YOULL BE SUPRISED AT WHAT THIS CONSOLE DOES AND IT DOES IT ALL SOOOOOO WELL GRAPHICS AND SOUND ARE AWESOME GAMES ARE BECOMING BETTER AND BETTER AND THE PRICE WILL EVENTUALLY COME DOWN SO IF YOU CANT AFFORD ONE FROM THE SHOPS YET YOU MIGHT BE BETTER TO WAIT AND BUY ONE IN JANUARY OR FEBUARY AS YOU CAN GUARANTEE THAT WHEN PLAYSTATION RELEASE THEIR NEW CONSOLE XBOX WILL DROP THERE CONSOLE DOWN EVEN MORE BUT THE PLAYSTATION DOSENT COME OUT TILL MARCH SO THERES NO WAY MICROSOFT WILL BRING THE PRICE DOWN BEFORE XMAS

SERIOUSLY IF YOURE THINKING OF BUYING OF OF THESE DO IT DO IT NOW THEY ARE THAT GOOD BUT JUST DONT BUY IT FROM EBAY PROTECT YOURSELF BECAUSE AS WITH ANYTHING THINGS BREAK ETC AND IF YOU BUY IT FROM EBAY AND ONLY GET 3 WEEKS USE OUT OF IT YOU COULD BE GUTTED AS MICROSOFTS OFFICIAL WARRANTY ENDS IN NOVEMBER AS THEY RELEASED THE CONSOLE IN NOVEMBER ONE YEAR AGO.SO AFTER THATE DATE YOU WILL NEED A RECIEPT TO PROOVE THAT YOU STILL HAVE WARRANTY IF YOU ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BUYING ONE FROM EBAY THEN PLEASE READ MY OTHER GUIDE ON XBOX 360

THANKS FOR READING AND PLEASE VOTHE THIS AS USEFULL IF IT HELPED THANKS AGAIN

GOOD POINTS

X I LIKE THE WAY IT CAN ACCESS MY PCS FILES :-) THATS AWESOME :-)

X CAN SEND VOICE MESSAGES AND PICS TO YOUR MATES AS WELL AS HOLDING FULL BLOWN MSN TYPE CHATS WITH MORE THEN ONE PERSON :-)

THE BAD POINTS

X A LITTLE NOISY BUT NOT OVERLY BAD ( HOW LOUD IS YOUR PC CAUSE THIS IS A VERY POWERFULL ONE OF THEM BASICALLY)

X BIT WORRIED ABOUT THE LASTABILLITY OF THE CONSOLE SO I TOOK OUT THE 3 YEAR GUARANTEE ( BUY ONE FROM A SHOP)

X 1ST GAMES WERENT GREAT BUT THEY ARE GETTING MUCH BETTER CHECK OUT THE ONES I LISTED ABOVE THERE GREAT AND HIGHLY RECOMENDED

X CAN GET A BIT HOT SO BUY A NYKO INTERCOOLER IT WORKS REALLY WELL AND COULD MAKE YOUR CONSOLE LAST LONGER WELL WORTH THE 10--20 UK POUNDS

X EXSPENSIVE -- EVEN WITH THE PREMIUM CONSOLE YOU WILL NEED TO BUY A PLUG AND CHARGE KIT FOR YOUR WIRELESS CONTROLLER AT 15 POUND OTHERWISE YOULL BE GETTING THROUGH DISPOSABLE BATTERIES VERY QUICK AND IF YOU WANT TO PLAY WIRELESS XBOX LIVE YOULL NEED A XBOX WIRELESS ADAPTOR WHICH HAS A RRP OF 59.99 UK POUNDS ( SO THATS ROUGHLY 75 QUID UNLESS YOU BUY FROM EBAY ITS WELL WORTH A LOOK)

X VERY ADDICTIVE YOUR SOCIAL LIFE MAY SUFFER LOL :-)

OVERALL A GREAT PIECE OF SOFTWARE AND HATS OFF TO MICROSOFT FOR WHAT THEY HAVE ACHIEVED IF YOU ARE THINKING ABOUT BUYING ONE THEN DO IT NOW AS IT WONT DISSAPOINT AS LONG AS YOU PROTECT YOURSELF AND BUY ONE WITHA GUARANTEE
