Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim 250GB


Though the new Xbox 360 certainly addresses most of the concerns we've had with the versions before it, we don't think it warrants a purchase if you already own an Xbox 360 in working order with an HDMI-out port and a hard drive.

Sleeker design ; 17 percent smaller ; Much quieter operation ; Better cooling ; Touch-sensitive power and disc tray ; 250GB hard drive ; Built-in Wi-Fi ; Five USB ports ; Dedicated Kinect port ; Onboard optical digital audio

The hard drive is still proprietary ; Controller on D-pad remains unchanged ; Cumbersome power block ; Renders existing faceplates useless ; No HD gaming out of the box

Of course we imagine retailers will offer enticing promotions on trade-ins of existing hardware for the new Slim console, so the choice to do so will ultimately be up to the individual. If you're desperate for Wi-Fi (and don't already have the USB...

250gb good, 4gb bad


I have owned both the 250gb and 4gb. The 250gb has been going strong for years and the kids love it. My 4gb has died under warrantee and will take up to 5 weeks to repair if it can even be repaired. I bought it from BigW who promised a refund then...

Black Excellence, matches black-frame LG 60 inch TV


The black console 4GB, now a year old, sits on the black-polish coffee table, as it's outside surface matches with my 60 inch black-frame 60 inch plasma TV. Reason why black is favored because I often play at night time where I can focus on the screen,...

Black slim style, HDMI 1080p resolution/connection

None yet as it sits on coffee table free from obstruction, closed wall surfaces
