    Hello everyone i've looked all over my box to find out when my xbox 360 was made and couldn't find out. I'm sure it's in an obvious place that i'm overlooking but if someone could help me out by telling me where that would be great! Thank you for your time :)

    Your 360 should be alright. It's ones that were made in 2005 that are more likely to malfunction.

    Are there any other tips regarding the date other than avoid a 2005? Is 2006 the only other year? Months and serial numbers have no reputation of signifying anything over and above the year?

    I don't understand what you mean. Just avoid a 2005 one if you can; however, that does not mean you're guaranteed to not have problems. Any system made in any year can overheat, it just seems that the older ones are more likely to do so than the newer ones.

    from what i have been able to find out you should avoid any console made BEFORE april 2006.

    supposedly m$ changed the shitty solder (this is were the 3 red lights come from and has nothing to do with overheating) they were using at that point for a better qaulity one.



    prehaps anyone who has a 360 with the 3 red lights could post there mfn dates here and we will get a better picture of what ones to aviod.


    my first box'x was febuary 06 and yes it did die red lights a while back. heatguned it a month a go and it is running ok still.


    second box's date is may 06 and has had no probs so far.



    my best to you all
