Everything looked ok, no dents, nicks, security sealed box, but within 5 minutes of powering the system on, there was a faint electrical burning odour. Now, at first we thought it was coming from our PC which we were going to use for screen grabs (wouldn't be the first time), but moving it to our TV still displayed a black screen. Putting the old nose to the unit test revealed that yes, something cooked inside the 360.
on all teh forums i've posted on people posted this same article and everyone said their boxes were fine, so its probably not just you.TeKNiK said:I've not had any of these crashing problems, but then again maybe it's just me.

as for PC's. i generally like pc's better too, but the one thing i'd say consoles are better at(other than fighting games) is that consoles don't cause near as many problems as pc's do. I have crashes and freezes all the time on my computer(althoguh not so much since i got my laptop), and i don't have to worry about spyware/viruses on my consoles.

They produce DVDs and other electronic items in batches as well, and if something gets screwed up during production, it often hits a batch or two before they catch on and correct it.Walmart Security said:I doesnt make any sense. If one group of boxes work, shouldnt the other group?
Consoles are quickly becoming more than just gaming tools though.. I mean.. webcam on the 360? Come on! Yeah, can't wait to see the horrid faces of our gaming generation =)CM said:That's cause PCs aren't ONLY meant for gaming...
