I just bought one Sunday from Amazon and it's supposed to be here tomorrow. (Wednesday) I'll tell you what I get when it gets here. I'm praying it's a falcon w/ a Benq. I just don't want a freakin Hitachi 79.

Bought my new 360 in the arcade pack new unit with Benq drive and HDMI, its my live box now. My brothers bought another 360 to replace their rrod unit from the same store, theirs was a refurb with a Hitachi and no hdmi but it was dirt cheap and we only use sd tv's atm. From talking to other people who have bought the arcade pack most if not all are the new box's.

I called up the store [wow] before i purchased mine to confirm that it was a new box, they even opened and checked if it had a benq drive [it helps to know someone who works there =P] for me.

I just got an Arcade from Amazon today and it was a 09-30-2007 and it had a 203w psu and a hitachi drive. The worst of both worlds. Back to Amazon it goes. They don't have any 360's at all at any store where I live. Best Buy, Circuit City, WalMart, EB, Gamecrazy. I just want a falcon w/ a BenQ, is that asking so much?

i think only some of the new ones are getting new m/b because my friend has a Zephyr and a hitachi drive (quite unlucky) + he bought one last week while i have a benq falcon bought in december.

edit: it might be because his is a premium and mines an elite? i dunno
