    Hello,

    sadly the long 'ask a xbox question' thread is closed but I just happen to have a question. Since I want to buy a used Xbox directly from another person for cheaper price, what should I know about its hardware? This is what I think I know: That there are some better and worse 360s cause of the date their hardware was placed in the factory, dont kill me when this isnt true its what I was told :c!

    Should I know anything about its production date? Stuff like this, so I wont have any problems with it.

    Thank you so much if you find time to reply me.

    The production date is printed on the console, on the back, it's called MFR Date. Assuming you want to buy a phat (the older white model), a 2009 or later 2008 box would be what you are looking for.
    Also if you want to be sure not to get a fixed one make sure it hasn't been opened yet (Microsoft seal under the face plate still intact). If it has been opened you could be buying a fixed rrod box, and there are no real permanent fixes, they only last for like 1 to 3 months. On the other hand, if you want to buy one that is able to play backup games it has been opened anyways, then atleast make sure it has the latest drive flash installed (LT 3.0). You might also want to check if the box is still capable of going online, Microsoft bans boxes from going online for playing backup games and hacking.
