This model is the ideal xbox to buy, in the past i have bought the 20GB model which was fine for a year then the RROD appeared, this seemed to be a regular occurance. After sending the xbox of 3 times i decided to purchase myself another model; stupidly i bought the 20GB model again. And YES RROD appeared less then a year later, this time instead of sending my xbox off to Microsoft, i decided to throw it out my window. However after contemplating for a year whether to buy another xbox, with the last of my student allowence i bought the 60GB model (I starved for a whole week for this xbox) Microsoft informed me that the manufacturing problem that i had previously came across has been resolved in this 60GB model, although some of my friends beg to difffer. I have not had any signs to tell me the xbox is going to be faulty i have had no problems whatsoever.
What this xbox has to offer- Unlike my old 20GB model it has the HDMI slot, for those who dont know what that mean; it basically has HD (high defininition). I beilieve that the size of the hardrive is the ideal as it allows you to save trailers,demos, music and other downloadable content, which for any gamer is vital, this again is better then the 20GB as you use up most of the memory just on demos, i wouldnt suggest buying a bigger memory then the 60GB as the rest is just a waste and would be never used up. The xbox has a wide range of game choice which in my opinion is better then there rivals sony.
This console is a must buy, but dont be suprised to come across the RROD!!
