If I get the one with the Falcon 65 nm chipset instead, will that lower my chants of getting a RROD?
Yes it will.
Compared to the Zephyr models, it should lower, most definitely.
I actually have a Falcon model and it has been working flawlessly as of late.
When did Microsoft start making the Xbox 360 with the jasper chip?
July of 08' I believe. From what I've heard, the new Elite models do not contain a Jasper chip. You might want to google the differences between the 3 types (zephyr, falcon, and jasper), so you can tell which type of version you are going to buying when at the store.
I found a site that says the jasper chip is only available on the arcade models.
That was the case for a while when the Jasper chip were just made. The Falcons were still being left over in stores on the Pro/Elite models after a Jasper model came out. If you go to a store, you'll be able to tell the difference between the models if you look at the manufacture date and the amount of power the console outputs.
If you're not as picky with Jasper chips, Falcons will run just fine. I bought mine about 2 months ago with a Falcon, and it's been working flawlessly so far.
I got the Xbox 360 arcade today, it has
256 MB memory
12v 12,1A,5v,1A Mad in China

Output: DC 12V 14.2A 5Vsb 1A
You were thinking about getting the Elite and then got the Arcade?
Why would you get the arcade in the first place?
Cost, not everyone sees the extras as being worth it.
What Lot Number is it Satam? If it's above 170 it should be at least a Falcon.
Yeah I suppose... it just seemed like an extreme trasition in thought.
Where is the Lot Number located?
With the Arcade, can I upgrade to the Elite status?
If not I will take it back in get the Elite in September.
nope theres no slot for a hard drive on top
What about that thing on top that you can take off?
Can't I just put a hard drive on that?
The Lot Number is located above the bar code and I think I might have gotten the Lot Number wrong, it has to be over 750, not 170.
You can put another HDD in the top of an Arcade, the only disadvantage of getting an Arcade over a Pro or Elite, is that you need to buy a HDD separately and you don't get some of the extras with the console. (Headphones, Ethernet Cable etc.)
I took back my Arcade today, whent to Meijer and there saving an Elite for me intell 10pm
Is this the info for the Jasper?
1. Check the wattage information, it should be below 175w.
2. Check the manufacture date. Jaspers should be manufactured during August 2008 or later.
3. new 360s have 12.1 voltage
i got an elite i think there awsome. alot more memory and you can play in HD whici is cool
I had a elite die on me about 5 months ago. It was purchased a couple months after the elites were out. Good luck hope it doesn't die.
dude you spelled thinking wrong.
My Elite also RRoD'd on me. Got mine late July when they came out. MS swapped it out for a refurb under the 3-year program. This one is NOISY as all get out. My original was very quiet. Ticks me off.
My son has one of the Pros (his also RRoD'd and was exchanged by MS). He's always complaining about a lack of space. I'm glad I have the 120GB HDD. I'm down to about 50GB free. Don't do movies though, just load the games to the HDD so they run much faster.
