The best yet!,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Xbox 360 4GB Console (Video Game)
The best Xbox so far. The matte finish, price, 4GB internal is plenty for game saves and some add-ons. If you want more memory, just add 1-2 16GB USB flash sticks. I use USB drives for game saves and full game installs. This way I never have to worry about IF the system breaks on me. I'll always have my personal saves on the flash sticks. I never trust hard drives as they are more prone to fail over a flash stick. Thats why I didn't keep the 250GB version. Plus I don't do demos so I don't need that kind of space. Matte finish does not collect dust and hair like the gloss version does which drove me crazy as I did own the 250GB version for a short time until this version came out. VERY HAPPY with the arcade.

hello Mikey, the only difference between this version is the harddisk? also has WIFI?

Yes. And it does have WIFI. Also it's a matte finish (flat black) which means no finger prints and doesn't attract dust as much.

I hate to say it, but the console itself will probably die before the hard drive. I still have my launch HDD. I guess using a flash stick is still a good idea just in case, but I don't think the 4GB version will be enough room for my needs.

Do you think it would be possible to get some photos of the matte console? I've seen plenty of the glossy 250GB version, but all I have to do is look at my 60GB PS3 to see that I don't want any more glossy consoles. I'd like to see how the matte version looks though.

Mikey does this version come with an HDMI port? If not what are the best cables to hook the system up.

Yes it has the HDMI port. Thats what you will want to use.

or instead of 16GB stick, u get a 64GB stick or TB external drive. or a home server. haha

Nope, 360 only supports up to 16GB of space on each USB device plugged in. So you can plug in a 1TB external device and all the 360 can use off it is a 16GB partition it will create.
You can plug in multiple devices though and get more that way, so you could get two 16GB flash drives in at the same time and get a total of 40GB of space (4GB internal, and two 16GB sticks added).
I'm just going to hold out until they sell HDDs separate, I'm not afraid of HDDs dying but I don't want another glossy finished console to dust daily (hi PS3).

I have the 4GB because I wanted the matte finish. Also just buy a 120GB old xbox drive on ebay. Take the case off, drive comes out and it does fit in the new 4GB Xbox. It plugs right in. Most don't know about this but it does work. Read the forums about it. So I spent $199 + $46 (ebay drive) for my system. I have plenty of storage room with a matte finish. You will void the warranty on the hard drive but it's old anyway and there isn't one. You will NOT void the warranty on your new Xbox. No mods at all. Just plug it in where the new drive would normally go.
