    How do i know if the 360 that i have is not one of the bad ones?

    alright I went to a game store today aand asked about the 360. they said if it was sold after march 2007 then its the good console that is not as bad as the ones sold on launch. how do i know if someone ripped me off by selling me one of the bad ones> is there like a date on the bottom of the box?

    heh,

    you'll find the manufacturing date at the back of the console, in the area
    where the wifi adaptor/video out and power leads connect.

    whether it's a "bad" one or not is irrelevant. if it's gonna go, it's gonna go.
    although hopefully, M$ will have made subtle changes to the hardware to
    minimise the 3RLOD. they have however, now opted to give buyers a 3
    years warranty which should give you peace of mind should it break.

    to help matters, there are things you can do to "prevent" the xbox
    overheating.

    lie it flat in a well ventilated area, i.e. don't cram it into a closed unit
    A/V rack on top of other equipment which give off heat.
    if it's going to be exposed to dust (near a carpet) make sure that you
    check the fans at the back on a regular basis to see whether any crap
    is accumulating...if it is, get one of those "compressed air" cannisters to
    blow the dust/dead skin cells away.
