Wouldn't waste my time, and money again,
Not using it. It was returned, The item was misrepresented. it did not state at the top of the ad that it did not contain anything to make it work, also it didn't include a 250gb hard drive or any hard drive for that matter, any first time buyer would be essentially buying a "brick" this is misrepresentation, The goods where not fit for purpose.
The ad did say right at the bottom that it did not contain the parts mentioned. but this was after it showed the stats for the complete item, thus the why tag misrepresentation. I as a first time buyer of such a item, was fooled by the ad, it would have been like going to a car showroom and seeing a car you want, and getting it delivered. But when it comes it has no wheels, no steering wheel, and the seats have been removed.
so I wasn't happy.

The Xbox 360 S is a great refresh and Microsoft should be praised for it.
The Xbox 360 has been around for some time now, so following the revamp from Sony of its PS3, it's only natural that Microsoft would want to get in on the re-invigorating action for its console, boosting sales and fixing a couple of issues along the way. In steps the new Microsoft Xbox 360, or as some call it the Xbox 360 Slim or as the name on the back of the console itself refers to it, the Xbox 360 S.
Before we talk about the new slim console, it's probably worth just noting what you get in the box. In short you get virtually nothing that isn't core to the unit. Yes, there is the console, the power pack, a controller and a headset, but there is no way of actually connecting it to your TV. You'll need to bring the HDMI cable yourself.
Now that we've got that out of the way the first thing you'll notice about the new console is the size. As you might expect, it's now considerably smaller. Not Nintendo Wii small, but reduced enough that at the Microsoft press conference at E3 in Los Angeles, Microsoft hid the new Xbox 360 inside the old model before the big reveal. Incidentally the same trick Sony performed when it launched the slimline PlayStation 2.
The new Xbox 360 S also brings with it a new glossy design that is even more masculine than the previous matte outings. There is nothing family friendly about this device when it comes to looks, strange considering Microsoft's gunning for a family audience with the Kinect later this year, but that doesn't mean it looks awful. Out are the rather large bulbous edges; in are stark lines, hard edges and plenty of grills.
Part of the new design is now a very large fan grill on the top (when laid flat), plus two grills/vents that engulf both sides. It's all to stop it over-heating you see - something previous models were prone to. But while that means it is considerably quieter, and we mean quiet enough that you can have it on in the background without you noticing, it also means that you can't put anything else on top of it like you could with the original design (yes that's what probably caused the overheating in the first place).
While Sony opted for a curved top with the PS3, Microsoft has gone for a flat design with air vents, and it is something you should account for in your TV stand if space is tight.
The design has also seen the front of the console cleaned up as well. The IR receiver has been hidden behind the casing, while the memory unit slots are gone altogether. You still, however, get two forward facing (hidden) USB sockets for connecting things like USB storage drives.
For those really into playing spot the difference, the DVD eject button has shrunk and become touch sensitive, while the On switch is now sliver rather than the same colour. Gone too is the Red Ring Of Death (RROD) warning sign, replaced instead with the red eye of doom.
Around the back and there is plenty of change too. Microsoft has added an Optical S/PDIF socket for audio buffs, two further USB sockets bringing the rear total to three and the overall console total to five, and a dedicated AUX socket to power Kinect for Xbox 360. Besides that there is an AV socket, an HDMI socket for connecting to your TV, Ethernet and of course the power. There is now also a Kensington lock so you can bolt it to something rather than having it nicked when someone comes to burgle your house. As before the hard drive is fully replaceable and rather than a big clunky thing sticking out of the side.Read full review

GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY!
This was a replacement for my old elite xbox 360 which after many years of service finally died on me. I bought this bundle and it is great. Great value for money and the games are good too. The xbox arrived promtly within 3 days of purchase. It came just as stated, new in perfect condition and i am very pleased with it. Only down side is that, since Skyrim is a downloadable game and not a tangible disk, you can not trade it in if you do not want it. Also the forza game is only the eseentials and therefore for a greater car selection you will need to spend an additional £5 to attain them. But apart from that it is great! I would reccommend.
