Microsoft Xbox 360 Pro System Xbox 360 60GB
Xbox 360 sets a new pace for digital entertainment. More than just a cutting-edge game system, Xbox 360 also integrates high-definition video, DVD movie playback, digital music, photos, and online connectivity into one sleek, small tower, and in the process puts true Next-Gen power right at your fingertips.
|Xbox 360, shown with wireless controller, is a sleek, customizable gaming and entertainment system|
Under the Hood
Xbox 360 is much smaller than its predecessor--it measures approximately 3.3 by 12.2 by 10.2 inches and weighs 7.7 lbs. It's powered by custom IBM PowerPC-based CPU with three symmetrical cores each running at 3.2 GHz. It also carries a custom ATI graphics processor loaded with 10 MB of embedded DRAM, 48-way parallel floating-point dynamically scheduled shader pipelines and Unified shader architecture. This is powerful enough to draw 500 million triangles per second. In other words, it makes for great looking games in standard TV definition, and even better thanks to built-in support for HDTV 1080i televisions. It also supports the widescreen 16:9 format.
Control your Gameplay
Xbox 360 uses a refined button layout for its controllers. Back and Start buttons sit at the center of the controller and between them is a new Xbox Guide button, which instantly takes the user to the Xbox 360 user interface. From there, they can check for friends online, access personal digital content like photos and songs, and more. The black and white buttons of the first Xbox controllers have been replaced with new shoulder buttons placed above the left and right triggers. Xbox 360 can accommodate up to four wireless controllers and has three USB 2.0 slots to use for wired controllers or for streaming your digital media from digital cameras, MP3 players, and any Windows XP-based PC. Microsoft has also created a video-conferencing camera, sold separately, that will work with the system.

The Media Experience
All Xbox 360 titles can be played in either standard or high-definition resolution in 16:9 widescreen, with anti-aliasing for smoother graphics. Game designers will be able to take advantage of the system's multi-channel surround sound. The Xbox 360's digital media allows users to supplement any game's music from tracks in their own personal library.
A built-in Ethernet port allows users to connect their system to a broadband connection for access to Xbox Live. The Xbox Live Silver Membership included with the console lets anyone create a Gamertag and gamer card to express your online identity, chat live with voice chat, and connect to the Xbox Live Marketplace to buy expansions, maps, and other digital items for your games. You can also update to a Xbox Live Gold Membership at anytime for even more benefits. The separately sold wireless adapter supports the common 802.11a, -b, and -g standards.

Top Customer Reviews
Here is how to identify which version you are getting:
The Box has a small rectangular cut out, where you can (with some slight manipulation) make out two peices of information. 1) manufacturing date and 2) voltage. While yes, you can estimate which version you got by the manufacturing date the voltage/amperage is the easiest. This number is found right above the "Made in china" found within the left portion that rectangular cut out. Xenon and Zephyr models have 12v and 16.5A. it looks like this on the box (12V...16.5A). The Falcon and Opus versions have 12v...14.2A. Keep in mind, from my experience and research all of these models are prone to RROD, and run harder and hotter than the "newest version". The newest version coined "jasper" can be recognized because while it too has 12v, it's amperage is at 12.1A.
12v...16.5A :not jasper
12v...14.2A :not jasper
12v...12.1A : JASPER, the newest version.
EDIT: this review is no longer relevant, I will leave it here for posterity.
-The Jasper units that came out in early 09 seem to be greatly improved. I have had mine since Jan. 3rd of 09 and it has not once died on me or given me ANY issues and that is with heavy use. I ran a stress test when I first got it and had mine running a game for 50 hours non-stop and it didn't even heat up. It was STILL shooting out cool air at the 50 hour mark. (Was working on an achievement in Tales of Vesperia that required you to play for x amount of hours so killed 2 birds with 1 stone here)
Added 2010- All current consoles being sold should now be Jaspers (the new ones that, from personal experience, I can say are greatly improved over all previous models) If you want to make absolutely sure, though, there are plenty of ways to confirm you have a Jasper, gaming trend had an explanation up (with pictures) just Google "gaming trend jasper" and it should be the first link saying something like: "Purchasing a 360? How to tell if it's a Jasper unit"
So in summary, while older versions of the 360 suffered the RROD I have personally not experienced it with the new Jasper and this is based on owning it for over a year now. All in all I am happy with my purchase. It's a much more solid system with the improvements, the price drop was also nice. The graphics are great as you'd expect from a next gen console. If you are concerned with failure rates of 360 just make sure you get a Jasper and TAKE CARE OF IT! (Can't stress that enough) Provide plenty of open air around the console, don't let it get dusty, etc. Like I said, I can't stress this stuff enough. I always find it a bit amusing when people horribly abuse their consoles (accidentally drop them, smack them if they're loading too slow, keep them in dusty or hot areas, block off airflow to all sides, don't dust them off, etc) then blame the manufacturer when it fails on them. I take -real- good care of mine, in fact my friend commented the other day about how my over 1 yr old 360 still looked brand new. Either way, have fun with your purchase! :)
Cons: It wasn't free, and neither is Xbox live but 40-50 dollars a year isn't too horrible.
