Xbox 360 System - Black with Wireless Controller (GameStop Premium Refurbished)
DONT WASTE YOUR MONEY!!
I had some pretty great expectations for my first Xbox 360 but sadly they were all stomped out. This system that I bought may be great, but will not play any of the great games that have come out such as battle field 4. This unfortunately does not have the storage space, forcing me to buy an external hard drive. There goes 60 more dollars I had to spend out of the 450$ it ended up costing me to get. This version does not come with a wireless adapter so I paid 40 more dollars, and of course I had to pay for Live costing me another 60 dollars. If I wanted to pay this much for my Xbox I would've gone to the store and bought the 250 GB. I am planning on returning this, and if I cannot I will sell it for what it's worth. Sadly I expected more from it. I'm going to go play my PS3 now.
Don't buy Refurbished
I bought a Microsoft refurbished unit after being told by an employee that the Microsoft refurbished was better. After a month of infrequent play I got a red ring of death on the unit. Took it back to the store I purchased it at and was told that they wouldn't exchange or refund me for the item and to send it to Microsoft. Got a hold of Microsoft and was told that the issue wasn't covered under their 1 year warranty and that it would cost me 100 bucks to assess the issue and fix it. In total that would be what a brand new system would cost. So I suggest to save yourself the headache and by a new system and don't waste your time and money on a refurbished system.
DOES NOT WORK
Bought this used system a month ago and already having problems with it. Does not read most of my disc but they work on other xbox 360. Gamestop won't exchange nor fix it. Very bad.
Great buy if you can't afford the slim
I bought this system a few weeks ago and it's works great. It never overheats and is a good buy if you can't get the slim but your better off buying the slim because the failure rate is %70. you could get one 10 years old though. I would recommend the extended warranty but if you get that your better off buying the slim because it's $20 more.
it red ringed two days after use
i bought this product for college one week ago at home. i left for college that weekend and when i got her after 2 days i go the two red rings. in my opinion this is ridiculous because this shouldn't happen because it should be fixed to be brand new. i would not recommend buying this product because who knows what your going to get. also long story short i can't return it now because im at school and dont have the time or money to go back home and return this product!
I would recommend getting an XBOX 360 S System, but this one will do just fine. It has better games than the PS3, but it is more cheaply made. For those that hate the XBOX 360, the XBOX 360 has very similar gameplay to the PS3, except you must pay for XBOX Live. Also, some of us must work for our stuff, and cannot afford a PS3.
The black Xbox 360 is a great system, and a great product, it delivers an unparalleled gaming experience. Most 360 games have awesome visuals, and are awesome to play, and thanks to the Xbox, the gaming fun never ends.
Will be returning
Bought the system yesterday and already having problems with it. The screen froze up to a fuzzy blue. When I restarted, it wouldn't come on at all. I finally got it to come on and the screen was frozen with the xbox logo.
I am very happy with this purchase I bought this for me and my wife she does not know yet but will know soon LOL. Plays games well and same with movies. Highly recomended and great buy.
I had it for about 3 wks the fans were loud but now it's quiet and cool thanks gamestop!!!! And also the heatsink on the white console it was hot on the side because that's the heatsink but on the elite it's never warm always cold and cool.
