    if you get a jasper unit they are much more reliable quiet, and cooler . I havent heard of many jaspers red ringing. Try searching for jasper red ring and you wont find much at all. Also if you install all your games you will save your dvd drive and wont have to worry about it.

    The 3 year warranty makes things worry free too.

    If I were to go to any store, what are the chances I would end up with a Jasper then.

    pretty likely its a jasper, unless you are out in a store in the middle of nowhere

    just look at the back power rating without opening the box to tell if its a jasper or not

    I am guessing Jaspers use less power?

    How can I tell? I bought mine a year ago this month and the fucker doesn't make a noise and it barely gets hot. I also have always installed my games to HDD and have a cooling base plus a fan. Even if I don't turn on the fan or cooling base it actually is only slightly warm to the touch. I play the fuck out of my console too lol.

    Well sorry bros.

    I really wanted to get one but there are lots of issues that make me not buy it.

    First, the most obvious, RROD.
    Second, the online. You gotta pay to play. I can do it for free on PSN.
    The third, too much shit to buy a system, checking model numbers and stuff.
    The fourth, I'd have only one game and even if I like Forza 3 a lot, I'd still get bored of it.
    The fifth, I have no space to put it on.

    I am using the Best Buy Deal and getting;

    Demon's Soul, NFS Shift and Killzone 2.

    :rofl: dont think forza 3 is worth the money of a 360. im having a rough time doing more than 3 or 4 races every few hours cause it feels so tedious already. and ive still got a ton more to play. sucks :hs:

    Five reasons not to get it.... ONE... maybe one and a half reasons were a result of this thread. Your mind was already made up. Troll thread confirmed.

    I've had mine for 2 years without problems. I made sure it was a falcon model.
