Blown away by this system,
This review is from: Xbox 360 20GB [Old Version] (Video Game)
Let me start by saying that I own 2 Wiis and love that system. I bought the 360 after the price drop and because it has HDMI and an extra heat sink. Plus with the 3 year warranty there really is very little risk. I ordered it from Amazon Prime for overnight on Friday (1.99) and it came by noon on Friday.
I have now played it over 20 hours and am blown away by the system. I did not even buy a game, yet spent hours playing some of the literally 99 demos they offer of full 360 games (such as Bioshock and Madden 08). Plus I played many other demos for the games in Live Arcade (every arcade game has a demo). I loved Geometry Wars and bought it for 5 bucks. I also downloaded a HD version of 300 (4.50) and an episode of Star Trek (2.00). I have never had so much fun with a system before without even buying a game.
As for the system, it works perfectly and the fan makes virtually no sound. I was agonized over whether to buy now or wait for the 65nm chip and am so glad I took the plunge. The warranty makes it easy. I cannot imagine not having this system.

It should be noted that the 3 years is _only_ for the RROD, all other failures fall under the standard 1 year warranty.
Which is why you buy using a credit card that doubles it to 2 years for free.

I bought it on Amazon using a card so guess that gets me the 2 years.

Not just any card will do, not all credit cards have this feature.

I totally agree with you regarding the fun factor. I definitely had lots of fun playing UNO and other games on Xbox Live. I bought the yearly subscription for only $40 bucks here on Amazon, resulting in about $3 a month since it's for 13 months. I can't complain. Word of caution. Do not drink while playing UNO. ;-)
