Pros The graphics are good considering its age, it takes up little space and the 250 GB hard drive is plenty for anything that I'd ever use it for.
Cons It tends to freeze when playing some games, the DVD drive is very noisy and the power bricks growls after only having it a few months.
Summary Good product and I recommend it to anyone looking for a console. The $60/yr fee to play online is a tad annoying, but the online play does have good quality and rarely goes down.
Pros Great gaming, clean fluid graphics
Great variety of games
Zune Marketplace (Music and Movies directly on your tv)
Ability to connect of media (movies, pictures and music)on your PC
Cons Honestly can not think of any
Summary I really can not say enough good things about the Xbox 360. I have been the proud owner of a Zune for the past 3 years, yes proud and a Zune owner. I know the words don't normally come together. I could not be an iPod clone. I bought the Xbox after seeing one at my friends house. I am not a big gamer, more of a tech geek. I like to play sports video games. I bought this more as an entertainment center because it had it all. Video games, music, movies and television content. Maybe I am naive but I was amazed by the technology in this device. I have heard alot of people talk smack about Microsoft and this device. I assume that these are people who perpetually see the glass as half full. The ability to have one device for your video games, movies (be it Netflix or Zune Martket) and be able to access media content on your PC is by far worth the price.
I purchased the Kinect bundle. The Kinect is in a class by itself. The Kinect is easy to use and not complicated. The Kinect also has a voice activated system that works well. I have not had one problem with it understanding a command.
My personal favorite is having friends over playing music on Zune Market with the cool visuals on the television. Friend's alway comment and ask what it is, they love it. Zune player does the same thing, my friends also give positive comments.
"Works Great!"on by Bandito77
Pros No overheating like the original 360's
Internal hard drive
Internal wireless card
Cons None so far
Summary Definitely recommended over buying a used/new 360 pro/elite. You get the 250 HDD for much cheaper than buying it at a later time.
Pros - Kinect
- Plays DVD movies well
- Quality graphics
- Never slow
- Xbox Live
- Controller actually fits my hands (unlike the PS3's)
- auto-saves my games, unlike the previous generation's consoles
- Tons of free demos/exclusives
Cons - no Blu-ray
- Xbox Live is not free
Summary Overall this is the gamer's console. It is great for online play and Xbox Live is a nice-sized community. This console can also be used as home entertainment system.
