I think this is great value for money, not sure why it's cold, heat added.

Got one of these last time was on offer. Worth the price for the dvd remote alone. The stand stabilizes the console too. Heat added, worth a fiver imo.

small print!! anyone who stands there xbox upright is a idiot! it will damage your discs with slightiest movement!

Great price, reserved one for the remote control and heat added. Thanks for the heads up :-)

Well, if anyone attempts to move an xbox while its on anyway they must be a bit numb

Saying that i wouldnt scratch my discs anyway, hard drive install sorts that out

Agreed - son's Xbox damaged disks by moving while switching on and I have also read that standing vertical is a no no, unlike the old PS2.

Thanks ordered one as a Christmas gift ... should be worth it for the battery alone!

Newer Xboxes are fine standing up.

If you wobble anything about while it's on it's not going to work brilliantly, is it?

360s are definitely not alright standing up, the side plate they stand on is the major intake for cooling air. You can easily feel the temperature drop this causes if you put your hand next to it whilst it is on. This stand also does a good job of blocking other vents too. If you want to use it standing up you should use some sort of feet to raise it up a bit so it can still pull air in

The disc problem is just down to the cheapskate dvd drives missing the bumpers that stop this happening in any other drive and, as has been said, you shouldn't be moving it whilst it's on anyway.

The 2p arcade machines work better when you shake them, i always win

that looks aweful for the new black consoles, would be ok for mine though but unfortunately my xbox is in a cabinet with no room to stand up. Just about good value for the battery pack...just about

Great price, needed remote and battery pack!

Bought 2 of these for two consoles mainly for the recharge pack as it turns out they are terrible hardly ever work unless wire is connected doesn't hold charge cant comment on the remote as ive never used it and the stand is a bit of a waste of space tbh

thanks ordered for the remote stand will b straight in the bin my OH broke a few discs when he first got his xbox n stood it vertical

yeah i would never put my obox on the side. its not like a ps3 thats ok with the disc just zipping in, me with wii. but my xbox i lay flat, although space prevents me from doing it the other way, just lie it on top of the skyhd box, then put hd-dvd add on on top.

this deal has been posted more times than any other, heres the one from 3 weeks ago here

Since when? I had one of mine on its side for 6months and my jtag is on its side now. I've never had any issues with scratching discs, it happens when you knock the console when its on but if your daft enough to do that then its your own fault you shouldn't put the console on the side on the floor there best off on a shelf out the way. If you bang any CD/DVD the disc will skip and if there stood up the same thing may well happen as for the BS about the air vents I've never heard anything like it there's vent all over it, at the back on the top and so on. Microsoft even advertise it stood up.

Iv gotta scratched disc way back when i first got a 360, never stood it vertically since... Also i was sitting down away from the cosole when it scratched it. I heard it happen and checked the disc, ruined... Luckily was a copy id burnt.

I got given one of these for free, used it once, decided it looked awful and didn't like the idea of the 360 on its side so I binned it. Mine was a black one, that was bad enough but in white it looks even worse.

Hope you got pleanty of room for ventilation. Any 360 gamer will tell you 360's are notorious for overheating.

Cheers, got one reserved for the remote alone.

1 LEFT in my local high street reserved thanks heat added!!

Ordered one. WIll use remote and recharge. Thanks

Took a couple of these back before finding one where the battery actually held charge.

+1 totally awful battery pack. Never holds it's charge.
The remote might be worthwhile to some, but never used that either.
