Thanks for your reply, but how do you check the manufacture date without opening the box?
From the packaging and the box itself, how can you get any information on the Xbox 360 inside?
The box doesn't show the manufacturing date, BUT, that list also has categories for "Lot Number" and "Team" and I'm looking at the outside of a Slim retail box that I had laying around. It shows the "Team" and the "Lot number" on the outside of the box, and you can use those to determine what drive it has. In my case, my team is "FDOU" and my lot number is "1138X", which indicates that I have a LiteOn 16D4S, and this is the drive I had in that Xbox when I still had it.
