5.0 out of 5 stars Word of warning: doesn't come with HDMI cable. 23 July 2010
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I am going to sound a little bit like a fangirl what with the 5 star review, but I don't care. I'm just fed up of the whiny reviews saying stuff about fingerprints and noise claims, and hope to give a fair-ish review.

I wasn't originally going to upgrade to the new XBox 360 until later in the year. But then 3 weeks before it was released in the UK, my Elite, which gave me 2 years of gaming without a hitch, red-ringed on a saturday night which was meant to be a gaming night for me and my mates! To say I was peed off was an understatement. So with the claim that the new XBox 'cannot red-ring', I waited patiently for a few weeks, and bought the replacement XBox 360 S in HMV (after Amazon decided to take their sweet time to get it here. We've sent the Amazon one back...disappointing since we pre-ordered and paid extra postage as well).

First of all: the 'Whisper-quiet' claim - DEPENDENT ON THE GAME BEING PLAYED! I noticed a distinct difference in noise when playing different games. Playing Red Dead: Redemption, the console was almost silent. It gave out a smooth low hum, and I could hear everything that the characters were saying without putting the volume on the TV up or reading the subtitles at the bottom of the screen. When playing Fable 2, however, the poor console sounded like it was going to roll down my desk like a runway and take off. Different games have different results, so if you're having problems with a noisy game, install the game to the hard drive: There's enough room on the thing! If it's still noisy, then something isn't right.

So far, I've experienced better wireless connection than that of the old Elite, which tended to disconnect at the most inopportune times (Mid-match, or mid-movie).

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent build quality with a couple of niggles 19 July 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
The proven track record of 360 games and the XBox Live experience is well documented - so I'm not going to review this side of things. Quite frankly the software experience on the 360 is second to none. Its hardware history over the years has been plagued with RROD failure and noisy hardware operation.

My thoughts on the new 360 compared to the old. The only differences with the new Xbox 360 S 250GB compared to older design 360s are the standard larger 250GB HDD, wireless 'N' WIFI now built in, the whisper quiet operation and the redesign of its outer appearance (including touch sensitive buttons). It has an optical output for surround sound amplifiers too, which I don't use, and is Kinect ready such that the 360 slim will power the Kinect camera directly whereas the old 360 will need a separate AC adaptor for Kinect.

I've had my new 'slim' a few days now and the new black sleek shiny design is surely very sexy, and will not look out of place under your TV with your other AV equipment. The slim 360 is slightly smaller than the old 360 (not by much though, mainly in height when vertical by approx 1.5 inches) and it's definitely quieter. The DVD drive is still fairly noisy when playing games, but this can be solved by simply installing games to the HDD. All in all the new slim certainly has an excellent exterior build quality and finish which finally gives it a quality AV component feel. And the 250GB HDD will take some filling, even when installing games to HDD. These are the pros of the new slim.

The cons of the new slim. Well it appears that the 360 slim kicks out a lot of heat from its main exhaust grill - which heats up the surrounding exterior casing too. And I mean it's hot!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent piece of kit 16 Aug 2010
By Paul
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well finally replaced my original Xbox (yes original first release week edition) since it was big clumpy and old, but it still worked. Must be an antique by now!

The new one what a difference the thing doesn't make a sound when you use it. No longer am I watching or playing games with what sounds like a jet engine taking off.

It seems to load quicker and had no faults at all with it yet. the hard drive is excellent addition as my old 20gb was full and I can now install the games instead of playing off the DVD helping reduce the noise even more.

Anyone who has the older style or even the newer one will benifit if they want quiter machine.

5.0 out of 5 stars MUCH Beter Than The Original Revisions 20 July 2010
By A. Dunn
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I've had verious 360's since 2005. A launch console that kept dieing on me (the infamous RRoD) and then a "Japser" Unit that is still going but being sold on....

The New 360 is smaller (a little), looks nicer (if that matters to you) but it is now QUIET which makes it so much nicer to use. The 360 has always been a good games player but the noise created by the fans and the DVD drive have hampered it for use as a media streamer. This new version is super quiet when streaming media (now quieter than my PS3 which spins up the fans regularly during streaming HD content) and the DVD is a little quieter but the HDD space available means you now have the capasity to install games to the HDD for super quiet gaming.

Overall it's a great unit and is kinda how the Xbox should have been built years ago.

The reviews mentioning a noisy power brick are probably accurate BUT the PSU fan only activates if it gets hot. Mine is just laying on the floor and it makes NO SOUND. I would guess that the ones making a noise are not well ventilated or faulty!
