Help With My New 360 Elite
Posted 29 December 2007 - 12:15 PM
Ok I live in australia and i just bought my first 360 which is an elite with falcon cpu ( said 203 on outside box but has 175 on power brick). Now the problem is that is has a hitachi. I wanted a benq, hearing they were quieter. I have never heard a louder console in my life! Its like a vacuum cleaner or aeroplane, but only when using a 360 game disc.
When i put in a xbox 1 dvd or play an arcade game off hdd its really quiet, but a 360 game disc just make it turn into the loudest device of all time. Im crapping myself thinking that i got dudded on this?
So my questions are- Should i use the return policy at the store to swap for a newer one? and Is there a way to check for a benq drive from the outside of the box?
When i purchased it i made them show me a real box ( instead of display box) so i could check for falcon but they refused to let me open it up for full check. I also asked if this was the newest elite stock they had and he gave me "yes yes" but im sure this guy was full of shite, he didnt even know that pros were coming with hdmi. I think i need to demand to see someone with some authority at this store.
Sorry if theres topic on this already, ive searched for and looked through quite a few but i couldnt find the answers i need, and the sooner i return it the less hassle. Thanks in advance for any answers.

I heard they were loud when 360 launched, but i had no idea it would be that loud. I guess ill just have to get used to it, i think i'll look into the padding.
