Pros It looks better in my opinion than the standard white or black models. Good picture and excellent sound quality playing games. Has HDMI port which does make a big difference over the standard scart-HDTV out. Has 3 USB ports which is more than enough fo
Cons Recently I turned it on loaded a game, and it got the evil RROD for the first time in four years. However I have now fixed this myself. The DVD player is noisy at times producing a lot of vibration, and the fans are a bit loud, is not region free, I us
Summary I don't regret buying this, it has served me well for 4 years, though I do wish it hadn't of RROD'd, even though I fixed it it's tarnished my love for it, and I am doubtful it will go another four years without a hitch. I really like the look of the new GOW LE Xbox 360s just released, and am considering purchasing it, I would think they would sell out soon, so I had better decide, if my Halo 360 had not have had any problems I wouldn't of considered it though, because $600 is a lot of money for much of the same thing, I am considering a PS3 for a similar price as I don't have a blu-ray player, but then if the xbox dies again I will not be able to play all my faves games. And I might not be able to play the Xbox 360 exclusive games I have come to know and love.
Pros iv never had any red rings and have had it four 4 years and never have had any problems with the 500 gig hard drive
Cons no problems in the 4 years iv had it
Summary through out the 4 years iv had my xbox 360 halo 3 edition i had thought it was going to had problems at first but now that i have it its been 4 years and i have had nor red rings of death and no broblems with the half teribite hard drive.
Pros Fancy Halo look, the shiny orange looks pretty awesome and it's a good conversation starter. Comes with a few dashboard downloads (avatar/background) other than that it's just the same as the normal models of its time.
Cons I thought maybe it had better construction as many 360's around me RROD and mine did not. that however changed a few days ago. I hadn't turned it on for a day or 2 and it RROD'd. I restarted it and it got to the dashboard and informed me of an update to b
Summary I don't think I will ever waste my money on a "special edition" ever again. although it lasted 4 years without red ringing on me; it came out of nowhere with no warning whatsoever and is now beyond the warranty. Microsoft will not even look at the console without shelling out another $100. Funny how this all happened shortly after applying a gamecard for the gold live account as well as recently having downloaded some DLC. This is not how a company keeps customers.
Then again I am one of at least many hundred thousand customers so I'm sure I am insignificant to such a large company. but hopefully this review will make anyone interested in buying one of the older models think twice before dropping a wad of cash on it.
Pros Speed, picture quality, and just the over all appearance of the unit was spectacular.
Cons The fan was noisy, I had the red rings, the wait to get my unit back from microsoft was too long.
Summary I would definitely purchase the unit again. Maybe next time I buy a new system I will wait to buy, so the kinks are worked out.
Pros It obviously looks amazing. I really love the paint job, and I would be bored with any other color. It's very quiet compared to other 360's, and usually runs pretty fast and smoothly.
Cons I have gotten the RROD twice now. However, it's not unique to this type of 360, so I wouldn't let that affect my decision if going back to by another console.
Summary I love this console, and I have had very few problems with it. Obviously, it's somewhat expensive, but worth the money. I really love the paint job on it, and a lot of detailed work was put into the console's appearance. I strongly recommend this console.
