Need advice for buying an xbox 360 offa craigslist


Well-Known Member
Haven't had an xbox since the original now I "need" one. Want to buy used off of CL. Any advice as to what to look for?
Most of the newer boxes don't have the red-ring issue, but you want to be careful that you are not getting a model that was fixed by a hack. Basically the unit will work for a few weeks, maybe months then die.

I know that Micro Center and Best Buy both sell refurb units for $199 that have some sort of warranty, maybe a better option than Craigslist.

Other than that, all I can say is try to get a 60gb or 120gb model. I install the games I play the most to the HDD and they do take up quite a bit of space. It helps save on wear on the disc, and I don't have to hear the disc spinning while I am playing.

Buy a new one...not worth the headache. Unless you buy from someone you know I wouldnt buy a used one.
