    Default Xbox Help

    Need advise on which Xbox to get.
    My daughter is looking at getting a Preowned Xbox from Game but which version.
    Is the Elite with 120GB the best or does she get a new one, but thought with 4GB not much hard drive to save games.
    Cannot afford a 250GB new one

    The 120bg elite will suffice it has hdmi and a sizeable drive ...unless you need wifi then the new ones are pretty neat and also seem to run alot quieter and you could always fit a larger drive at a later date

    If pre owned and the older more rounded type look for signs of use. Make sure the Hdd fits nicely in the top and does not wobble about. Make sure there are two silver seals on the base of the Hdd and that they are intact.

    If the case is very scratched up and or the memory cards and USB flap are broken or missing, it may have had a hard life. Best to avoid in my book.

    If the sound of the fan is very excessive after a few mins running then it's probably clogged up with dust. There will have been a heat build up which is not good for Xbox's in general. I would avoid

    Make sure the warranty sticker located behind the front removable front cover is intact. If it torn or missing walk away.

    There are some good examples out there so shop around.

    My new 250gb is much better than my old falcon white one, fan is super quiet, wifi, touch buttons, slightly smaller, dedicated kinect port etc etc, quite happy with it.

    Yeah but there arent as many issues with the dreaded red ring of death, im on my 3rd xbox now.

    I would try get the 120gb slim over the elite if its possible, but the elite should be fine, you'll get a years warranty of them either way

    Touch wood is right, mine only went round two years ago then i had two more replacements, had latest replacement well over a year now, going great.

    I'm holding out to see if the slim goes down in price, could be waiting a while tho
