    Pretty sure it was pro as I bought it second hand with a 20gb hard drive on the box it says hard drive included. It was just hitting the 3 year mark.

    Can't really remember think it was silver. Can I not just check on this new one?

    might not be as new as you think, they've started re-labelling consoles, that could be the date it was fixed.

    Ok well im happy as that gives me 3 more potential years of use from that date.

    Its grey the drive like the other one was.

    BENQ VAD6038 DVD drive It has that drive.

    Yes they have consoles they put together specifically to send them to people as replacements. Very likely NOT a Jasper unless you sent a jasper in.

    cool!! I'm sick of sending my xbox back to be sorted... maybe next time they'll send me a new one!

    How can I definetly tell without opening the machine what chipset it is now housing.

    Wheres this information on mish mash consoles come from. Definetly not the same drive I sent them nor the same console itself.

    They have replacement consoles ready to send to you basically.
    It doesn't really matter as long as you get more warranty :p.

    You can only really tell by the power consumption.
    What does it say on the back of the console for voltage etc?
    (don´t know if you can go by that though with the recon consoles)
    You see if you dont send a Jasper in you don´t get a Jasper back,
    They have tons of old stock still for parts and full consoles.

    I got our elite fixed last week and they put a new motherboard in as we had E74.
    There´s no way to tell if we got another Falcon (which the old one was)
    or if it´s a Jasper.

    Yep, consoles made for sending them as replacements to people. :thumbsup:
    The hardware mix in those can´t be found in any console that you can buy in store.

    Look on xbox.com for your warranty status? Tells you how long´s left.
    They give you 3 months on repairs, I know that.
    If you really wanna know if you get another 3 years on 3 red lights and E74, give them a call and ask?!

    Very nice considering the turnaround time is only about a week total.
    Great service.

    Apparently if you complained you got more free stuff like games headsets etc. lol

    Surely you would be entitled to a new console, if they didn't I would play hell until they did.

    Yeah I know, I got free stuff in the past.
    Don´t wanna overdo it, if you get greedy you end up with nothing in the end.
    And they only give you extra stuff anyway if you really have a reason to complain
    like long waiting times or the fact youre on your 8th 360 in a year for example LOL
    Just bitching for no reason doesn´t get you anywhere

    Warranty Expiration: 11/4/2009 6:59:59 PM. So i'm guessing the three year rule applies to that.

    Most consoles with the older chips get either E74 or 3 red lights at some point.
    Both happen a lot which is why they added E74 to the 3 year warranty.

    It´s in american date format.

    That video error IS E74.
    E74 and 3 red lights are the errors that happen a lot.
    Others are rather rare.

    Yeah it´s been for quite some time actually.
    I hope you got the 58 pounds back.

    @Met-Cast:
    Do you have the E74 error message on screen?
    Gimme a sec, I took a pic when we had ours:
    twitgoo.com/1xk7r
    This is what it looks like

    Usually it starts with fragments on screen, then eventually gets worse and you get the E74 message.
    Anything other than E74 or 3 red lights you´ll have to pay for I´m afraid.
