Wanted: Xbox 360 Falcon System

I need a fully working falcon system ie one with HDMI, not looking for anything fancy, just an Arcade/Core pack or even just the console itself with no accessories but I have a few pre-requisites.

1. Seller must have good feedback and a good record here/elsewhere like Ebay etc.
2. The console must in as new condition and still factory sealed with it's warrantee intact.
3. Seller must be able to send quickly if deal is reached.
4. No brand new systems with Lite-On DVD Drives.

Let me know if you have anything to offer.

£83 ish on fleacebay for just the console no leads or anything else but it's guaranteed to be a BenQ Falcon, some do date back to august last year though.

Wow, how come they are so expensive ?

I'm not really too fussed if it's a 78 or 79 Falcon really although I would prefer it not to be. I think I'll probably just end up buying a pre-owned HDMI system from a store or something.

Thanks for the info man, rep added.

that's not expensive dude, they will be getting harder and harder to get hold of, so the price will only go up,

Currently it will cost in the region of £70 to modify a new one with a lite-on drive but if a BenQ is not used as a replacement getting banned on live is more than likely.

it's just makes sense to pick up a Falcon BenQ one while you can, console on it's own or not.. but getting one for less than £100 will be hard, unless someone is being nice or doesnt know the true value of such console to people that want to flash the drives.

I have a fully boxed 3 month old (by mfr date, only bought 3 weeks ago though) Arcade system, all paperwork still unsealed, all as new but has a lite-on drive, I'd happily let that full system go for a BenQ Falcon on it's own any day!

It's OK, I found one in a Store yesterday and bought it, working like a charm. :)

Thanks for all your help mate, I didn't realise that they had become so difficult to source. I did try to leave rep for you twice but it wouldn't let me.

So are you guys talking about some sort of illigal hack or something?

well yes i suppose is the answer,although i think it only becomes illegal to modify when u connejct to live as if u dont connect to live u dont agree to there T&C's

Never knew this, just checked mine and it's a Benq (already knew it was a falcon) may throw it on ebay now and get a 60gb one.

how do you check what drive you have???

take faceplate off and there is a hole.

yellow - liteon
white - benq
red - sammy
no wires - hitachi.

also anything made before april 2008 is flashable,as in april they started making them with liteon drives,which are hackable but its too much to even consider for most,also its only spoofing at moment and i have never trusted that method.

they all easy to flash now,esspecially the 79s as they only need slax and unlock disc to flash,its done in under 3 minutes.

hope this has helped out and explained what u needed to know buddy.


ADVICE:if u are wanting to cash in on the rising value of samsung,benq,hitachi consoles then sell asap as the hack to do the liteons properly does exsist its still in testing and isnt getting released until a month after the fall update for further tests and then older consoles will be worth alot less,specially as the price of the liteon ones has dropped

I would agree with ramiuk1, if you are looking to cash in on your benq then now is the time, especially since Jasper is superior to falcon anyway and the jasper systems can be had brand new for around £100.00

I will pay good money for a Falcon BenQ.

Let me know if anyone has one, even if it is just the console (and PSU preferably), the rest you can sell to make any new console purchase probably free.

Not bothered about Arcade, premium pro etc, as long as it is a 175w falcon with a benQ drive, in working order. Can even be flashed and also BANNED on live if you like..

Obviously if OP still wants one he would get first dibs..
#14
Whats the difference between a 175w falcon and a 203w one? I have a Hitcahi drive 360 with hdmi but its 203w is that not as good?

it's probably not a falcon, a first revision HDMI which is a Zephyr motherboard, which is still better than the non HDMI launch ones by far, just not a Falcon, and not a quiter BenQ drive..

Yours is easilly moddable though if that is what you are asking, just not as sought after as a Falcon BenQ
#16
Its just the older edition, has a slightly higher failure rate, but generally falcons are pretty steady from what I hear anyway so you should be alright.

yes its still good,personally i think the 79 which u should have is quieter than the benq,but yours is still the old style board but with hdmi,basically its the very 1st hdmi version,i think could be wrong it has been known only a few times in my life.
