Hello all,
I am looking to purchase a used Xbox in the next few days and was wondering what I should be looking for. Are there certain revisions that are more reliable, any known problems I should be aware of, etc?

Let's see check the manufacturing date, try to avoid anything earlier then 2003

You want a samsung or a phillips, thompson drives struggle to read discs even when they are perfect

Problems? Sometimes video failure, sometimes dvd drive failure, most of the stuff is pretty easy to to fix. Nothing like a good xbmc.....
