We set a limit for £70.

I can get it chipped for £10 so would be grateful if someone had an old arcade console they didnt want and would sell it for £30-£50 (leaves £10 spare for antoher treat) :)

Many thanks and i hope someone can :)

you looking to have all cables, powerbrick etc with that? if so you might wanna set ya sights on an older model for that price. something like a core or non hdmi model.

yeah a core will do - dont need HDMI as i dont have a Hd tele (think thats what its used for)

Needs to have a flashable drive.

i think the going rate for an old but fully working console (not flashed) is the £70 mark delivered.

New lite-on ones about the same as you have to have the spair DVD drive to replace it and quite a bit of tools/knowlege to do it.

a flashed old one is £90 (you may get one delivered for that but most want 90 in the hand)

Then there comes the HDMI ones, first revision zephyr (still a good one just not quite a falcon) is about 115, then a falcon BENQ anything from 130 to whatever someone wants to pay.

I was lucky to hunt down a few falcon benQ's all for around 110 for the full system but it takes a lot of asking, a lot of time and a lot of luck! Also the seller has to have no idea why these are sought after and they are just selling to get an elite or a ps3 or something..

If anyone know's it's a falcon Benq and why they are sought after, then they wont let it go for peanuts!

your might get a chipped 1 but band from live for that price........£60

How much would you guestimate my premium hdmi hitachi drive console to be worth for future reference dudey?
#10
How do you find out if its falcon Benq?
#11
CLuffy - ive lost the thread can you link


Oh - this isnt looking as cheap as id thought.

Which 1s are the best to flash - id like to have 1 to play backed up games and not get banned from live?

Il look around but need to know what im looking for?


Dudey - Do you chip them? At what price?

Thanks
#12
Check here to find out what drive you have:

http://www.360drives.com/howto

HDMI currently has two versions, Zephyr and Falcon, both are better than the first bodged together ones.

Zephyr has 3 capacitors (tall cylindrical ones) and 3 regulators (round ones with copper wire wrapped round) on the right, you can easily shine a torch through the top creating light on the board so that when you look through the side you can see how many you have.

Falcon only has two of the round regulators and uses a 175w power brick, first few batches of falcons were shipped with the 203 watt brick, as it is ok to use one on one that requires less power (a falcon) but not ok to use a 175w one on an older version that needs the full 203w.

No i cant chip consoles, i can flash the dvd drive which is the way most do it, but to be honnest id only be confident if it was a BENQ drive as i have done 5 now.

There is no way to not get banned off live if you are using a chipped or flashed console, you take the risk, you may or you may not.
#13
the only ones really flashable are hitachi or benq drive based ones

lite-on drives are harder to flash

dudey geezea can flash benq drives

im also after 2 consoles in this price range and they do not pop up very often ......

microsoft will ban any console that is modified....... so best to have 2 consoles, one for back up games and one for live :-D
#14
difference between flash and chip? lol
#15
easiest questions to ask are for the MFR date on the back of the console and the lot number from the original box.

You can then check the database on that site and see what everyone else with those numbers has got. then go on to show them the pics of the different drives and ask them which one they have to confirm it.

LITE-ON's CANNOT BE FLASHED! the key can be read and flashed to a different second drive which then means the lite-on is useless unless you need to put it back in.

flashed console means the dvd drive is modified and can play back up games

a chipped console is where you actually have to solder a chip onto the motherboard and then be able to play back up games

flashing is cheaper and easier

doesnt mean it's not a falcon as a falcon can use both. Early falcons were shipped with the 203w to clear stock.

In some cases if you modd your 360 with extra fans etc, it is better to use the older ones for the extra juice!:thumbsup:
#22
ok cheers fella ill look into it when i get home. i'm guessing its probably worth about £120?

Looks like mine is the rubbish one, should of known as it sounds like an airplane taking off!

people moan that the BenQ is slower on load up times but it was introduced to combat exactly that.

Agreed they are still a little too noisey but nothing compared to any other 360 drive...

ok, well the BenQ is the quietest one, that doesnt mean to say it's quiet! but sit it next to any of the other drives out there and there is a huge difference.

Dudeygeeza just checked my360 and it seems I've got the benq with a 175w power brick. Just wondering if I do decide to sell it were I'd get the most for it? Had a look on feebay but most with a benq etc I could find were only reaching around £100 give or take. cheers.

Oh and sorry op for jumping in on your thread, think of it as a free bump.:thumbsup:

as its moddable, sell it here, should get a nice price ....... :)

ebay is hard to find benq drives as most sellers don't know how to check the drive type & know nothing about the flashing

depending on your model you could get upto £260 (elite model that is)

thanks for that.

Its an arcade, hdmi etc with a 20Gb hard drive that I kept when my old premium got rrod. Would never get mine modded so my thinking was depending on how much I could get for this was to buy a new 60gb package or put it towrds an elite.

what do you think would be a fair price to ask for?

Again op sorry for hijacking.

yuo can ask a premium over a arcade say the following is rough pricing

arcade console with controllers ??? new is £120 ish your price £110 or little more
20gb hd = £25 - £35

so looking at £145 - £165 ...... someone will come in and tell me if im right.......

prices depend on the manufacture date etc

did you go as far as checking the dvd wires for what colour they are?

on ebay, as long as you put in title "HDMI FALCON BENQ" it will fetch a very good price. it doesnt matter about arcade premium etc, it's what is inside that counts!

if you go the route as selling as a package you could well lose out by quite a lot.

eg: modders buy up lite-on console only for 90 ish, they then buy a benq drive which is hard to get now on its own for around 50, they mod it and sell for 150++ or it would be pointless. ones that are modded with a samsung drive in replacement to the liteon go for around 30 less.

So a console that is already a BenQ FALCON will carry a nice starting price of around 130+ , but bear in mind that those modded liteon ones are passed off as HDMI FALCON BENQ's with no mention of the fact it was modded, so you could get more..

again thanks for that.

I had a look at that guide/database and seems going by the white wires, manufacturing date, 175w power brick and what other guys had then it is a benq with a falcon chipset.

It'd come with all the usual gubbons. wireless controller etc

But I'll do a little bit more digging around and may stick it on here in a few days.
