The Xbox 360 Elite 120GB Black Console is a great buy if you are looking for a great gaming experience.
The black consoles were a replacement for the white consoles which seemed to have overheating issues that would cause the console to "red ring" (the power button on the console would have red lights rather than the default green lights) and no longer function.
The console uses an external hard drive which can be easily upgraded from 120GB to either 250GB or 320GB and is mounted on the top of the console. Slots for USB accessories are available as are slots for standard A/V cables, Component cables, and many have HDMI cable compatibility. The console uses a standard wireless Xbox 360 controller and supports up to 4 controllers at a time.
Multiplayer gaming over the internet via an Xbox Live account(separate purchase)is definitely a plus allowing the player to play games with friends and family members not at the same location. Multiple Xbox Live accounts per console is also allowed.
Compared to the newer 360S(slim model), the Elite console lacks certain features such as built in wireless connectivity and internal hard drive support. The Elite is only slightly larger is physical size than the slim model.
Overall, the Elite is a great selection for those wishing to get started with 360 while having the ability to store saved games as well as being able to install the games onto the hard drive. Unfortunately, Microsoft has not installed the ability to play the games without the game CD in the tray making the installed game only slightly better than just playing the game straight from the game CD itself.
If you love Call of Duty 4 Modern Warfare 2. This system is for you. you'll love it. The custom graphics makes it look stand out. It also comes with a monster 250 gig hard drive. Only three systems out comes with one. It would be the final fantasy, splinter cell, and this system. It comes with two black wireless controller. Everything that you need is in this kit. It's a great package. It is also limited so if you can get one now then you're in luck. They are not sold in stores any more. It is basically a pimped out elite system.
This system not only looks awesome, it performs awesome. It is much quiter than older 360's as well as much more reliable. With the newer chipset it is highly unlikely to get the dreaded red ring of death. With the 250GB hard drive there is more than ample room for anything you need to save or download. Also, with the 2 included stylish black controllers, you and a friend can start playing immediately. I can also not compliment enough the creators of Call of Duty: Modern Warfare 2. It was without a doubt the most incredible game of the year. Awesome graphics coupled with intelligent, challenging levels made this game a joy to play. Not just once, but over and over again and with the online play you will never get bored with it. This system and game made me fall in love with the xbox all over again.
This review is to review the focuses differences that are not on a "standard" XBOX 360 and the Elite, and rate the system as a new purchase, not an upgrade or replacement to your current XBOX 360, but overall.
When the Elite was first announced, the biggest thing that made this different than the other two versions: the HDMI output. Now, after the new XBOX 360 price drop announcement and hardware update, the only difference between the Elite and the Premium is the 120GB Hard Drive and included HDMI cable.
Almost everything about the Xbox 360 in white stands true for the Elite: It theoretically doesn't run cooler, or quieter, or faster, and you've already know that it is black. The Elites should have the added heat sink for realiability, but all models should be receiving that soon.
Don't let the black paint job distract you; the only thing you need to ask is if it improves the video quality and after many reviews and hours using this machine, the XBox Elite's HDMI output is the pretty darn good, and the 120GB hard drive upgrade is nice for all that downloadable content that you have been picking up on th market place.
Should you buy it?
Gamers who have an Xbox 360? No!
Videophiles looking for an HD DVD player? No!
Videophiles looking to get into the Xbox Live video marketplace? Yes, but know that this thing is still loud and you can now get HDMI in the newly manufactured XBOX Premiums.
Guys like me who are gamers and video geeks? Ya, this is for you. The fact that all that video and audio is being piped through a single HDMI cable is a bonus. I swear it's a touch cooler and quieter, and I could want it to be such, but reports say it is not.
When running the HD DVD player, using Tokyo Drift and the newly minted HQV Silicon Optics test disc—the rigorous test disc benchmarks showed the same flaws on both the HDMI and Component outputs. Jaggies That means the video processor between the older and newer Xbox is likely identical, or of identical quality. That's the processor, though. This isn't a high-end HD DVD player. As for the outputs and what I saw with my own eyes and confirmed with my camera. The HDMI's slightly better shadow detail showed itself. That detail might be lost on a lesser TV or the untrained eye. But remember that the component cables are limited to 1080i. So HDMI wins at full 1080p with no compromises, but with VGA cables you have a draw.
Playing games, Command and Conquer and Virtua Tennis yielded no differences between the 1080p signals of all three cables—except the strange washed out colors that the VGA cables sometimes show (GRAW and Gears of War, for starters). The HDMI again has that shadow detail boost that comes up over and over again. HDMI wins for a better picture, even though all cables do the 1080p dance with games.
It runs HDMI 1.2 (not 1.3 - the newest version), only runs 5.1 Dolby still (no 7.1 yet), and only has the bonus of the larger hard drive, and sleek styling. The 360 Elite is worth getting if you are just now entering the high definition video game market and need the extra hard drive space for all your goodies - if not,then save yourself $100 and get the newly updated Premium with HDMI, packaged with a game bundle (if you can find them) and game on.
NEWER CONSOLE WITH JASPER CHIP SET IN IT(COOLER RUNNING PROCESSOR) 120-GB HARD DRIVE HOLDS ALOT OF INFORMATION & GAME SAVES,HDMI CONNECTION FOR HI-DEF TV'S & THE HDD HARD DRIVE FOR WATCHING DVD'S, AND THE SLEEK RED OF THE ENTIRE CONSOLE & CONTROLLERS MAKES IT STAND OUT AS THE FUTURE GAMING SYSTEM WITH MANY INTERNET OPTIONS FOR ALL YOR ENTERTAINMENT, DOWN TO THE WINDOWS MEDIA CENTER WHICH I RECOMMEND TO USE!(CONNECT THIS UNIT TO YOUR MEDIA CENTER COMPUTER) AND YOUR OPTIONS ARE ENDLESS.
