    ...Hey y'all - I'm looking at picking up a second hand 360. Some dude I know is selling his "20 gb premium" for a decent price. Just wondering what I should be looking out for here - is there any way to tell what units are most prone to failure (i.e. certain models or batchs) etc? Any general advice for 360's? Cheers.

    They're all prone to failure. It's a crapshoot. Honestly I would buy new so you're covered for the full three years off the bat (if that's even still applicable).

    I wouldn't buy a second hand 360, who knows how it's been used/abused. If it's reputation for reliability was better it might be worth the risk, but new is the only way to go here.

    Alright, well I spoke to the dude and it was a version without HDMI so I was all like "NO WAY YO"

    Case closed!

    I will go with a new one whenever I decide to get one.
