Earlier today I picked up the 360 deal from Argos (Truro) - It was Lot #0728 Team FDOU and had a BenQ drive. Did anyone else get this mix of lot/drive/team? I had previously been told and read at many places online the benQ was 'silent'... what a joke, this thing is nosier than a lawnmower and could probably still be heard over a jet.
I don't know about everyone else but having to turn your TV up to a deafening level just to block out the drone of the XBOX360s DVD Drive isn't my idea of fun. It's upstairs and people in the room downstairs below complain when it's on. (Not about the TV, about the xbox)
Could it be a fault or are they really THAT noisy? I'd be interested if anyone else got the same combination and experiences the same, or any other suggestions?
Since argos don't have a return policy on consoles I'm guessing I can't return it for a different one, I don't think? If not, and this is normal I guess it's going on ebay. :-(
