Just jumped up to £125.


Thanks price amended
Just purchased a one with the code and got it for £115... It's advertised at £119 though but when it's in the basket it goes to £125.. Then £115 with the code... Same xbox is £159 in argos !
Is this one a slot loader or tray loader? My one year old liked the noise my slim model's eject button made and pressed it one too many times so it won't stay closed anymore.
On this model the usb sockets have been reduced, there is no analogue video output connection (composite, scart, component etc) and no optical output if you need that for your home cinema system. Also by forcing you to use hdmi for multi-channel sound it may create additional lag if you have to connect to the tv via your AV receiver for such sound. On the previous model you could connect the TV directly via hdmi and have multi-channel sound via optical. Not a big issue for most but may effect some people out there.

Sadly still tray loading but at least Microsoft used slot loading for xbox one. You still have the issue that the disc can be scuffed/scratched if the console is moved while operating. Not possible on Nintendo and Sony consoles as they either use slot loading mechanisms originally developed for in car CD players or simple top loading mechanisms with more secure clamping.
Old tech but that hasnt stopped Sony doing with with the PS3 / PS2 ranges

Plenty of games are still coming out for the older gen systems, too..... combine this with a Gold Live subscription and Ebay and you have a (still) very capable system with a smooth interface and access to a ton of cheap / free games.
Thanks for this! Going to have happy birthday boy, who has asked for this console over the xbox one, suits me fine!

Hmm, might just have to rip out the drive on my broken one, superglue the front facia slot and just use it as a media centre and for arcade games.
good price.
Thanks, ordered to replace my ageing Halo 3 edition that sounds like it might takeoff every time I start it up

Probably not the best idea. The console logs activity such as when it's powered without a DVD drive. It's then flagged which could potentially lead to a ban (although never heard of anyone being banned because of it). Just an FYI.

Better to just replace the drive if it's faulty.

Sadly its not the drive, as I tried the drive in a friend's xbox and it worked fine. The problem seems to be related to the electronic eject button on the front of the Xbox telling the DVD drive to eject all the time.

could just be the eject button on the console itself (if it's the older style). Fairly easy to desolder and replace

you can eject tray using pad (i believe its Y button), which of course doesn't solve the broken button issue, but helps to get away without it.

Its one of the Slim models with touch sensitive buttons and the cable is shared between the eject and power button. Still a solder job?

The problem is the other way around. I can put a disc in but within half a second it ejects and won't pull the tray back in unless I press the eject button and of course it then pulls it in and spits it back out. It also eject on power on and shut down too so I've got to pull the power cable out after shutting down before it ejects the tray.

Send it back to microsoft then. I have the same version (E) but I also had the very first model in white (and 1 in black) and the old models had 3y warranty since the production date on the back of console. I am not entirely sure it is the same case with E version, but I would guess it is. Since the E model has been released last year,undoubtedly 3 years have not passed yet, which means it should be covered by warranty. It's broken, they will fix it;)

Ok, Ive seen you have opened the xbox, then warranty is void. It was the same with my black one- the disc tray didn't want to open at all, got blocked, I attempted to open xbox and fix it, unfortunately I didn't manage so I tried my luck with microsoft- unfortunately they sent it back saying that warranty is void as xbox was opened. I fixed the drive by hitting it with my hand slightly, magically it fixed the stuck drive haha

Its an S model and the fault happened when the console turned 13 months so the warranty had expired which was a tad annoying, the original models had an extended three year warranty because of the RROD.

I've tried everything, I hit it, I opened it and grabbed the spinner, I made sure the laser was sat correctly (there are loads of youtube video for these), the only reason I didn't buy a PS3 to replace it is because I'd just ordered a load of second hand games for it (the £1 GAME sale).
Have you tried a new belt in the drive? A lot of tray related issues can be because of a worn belt. Also its really the most common thing in drives to wear out with age. A worn belt can create timing issues that means the tray acts differently to normal. You may find in your drive there is a belt you can see around the gears that power loading and unloading the tray. It may look ok but may have stretched and it slips a bit before working and causes the issue.

Hmmm

Hmmm sorry to hear that then, but good to know as well that my e model is only 1y warranty. Isn't it 2 years though granted by EU directives? you might contact microsoft, if they say warranty only 12 months, tell them that UE customer law says warranty need to be at least 2 years, they might fix it:) (unless you opened the xbox and, breaking the seals, voided the warranty).

You might just need the eject/power ribbon replaced then. Actually an easier job than the soldering.

I'd personally hold out for a cheap PS3 if upcoming games are of any concern. Microsoft abandoned all first part support for the 360 as soon as the Xbone launched, where as the PS3 still has a fair few exclusives coming out this year, and probably next too.

That being said, its a great price. Great for anyone who somehow hasn't experienced the exclusives pre-2009, before Microsoft started doing half jobs and milking everything. All the Halos, Alan wake, first Gears of War (2 and 3 are awful), and I'm sure there are quite a few other more mainstream ones. It also has a few epic JRPGs in Tales of Vesperia and Lost Odyssey.

All electrical items come with at least 2 years of cover under EU regulations. You'll still have to pay postage to get it repaired, but it will likely be a lot cheaper than getting a dodgy shop to sort it out. Less risk than doing it yourself as well.

perfect timing my son's xbox cd drive packed up this week, although can order a replacement drive for £26, at such a great price I ordered a new one and with this post I didn't have yo search for the best price. def heat from me
This is pretty decent. Been looking at xbox 360s for a few days because my Dads is getting the disc reading problems and he's being impatient!

In this country (England) the limitation for a simple contract is 6 years. English law goes above and beyond the requirements of the EU legislation.
