The Xbox Returns
FedEx delivered my "repaired" Xbox 360 today. The returned unit has a different serial number on it, so it is either a refurbished unit, or a new one. I'm leaning toward the former, as the build date was around the same time as my defective unit (March 2007). Anyway, it's good to have it back, and it appears to be working well. The cooling fans make a buzzing sound, which is a bit annoying. But, the DVD drive doesn't sound like a jet turbine when it is spinning, so overall the unit is quieter than the previous one (it's still far from quiet, though). The only downside is that my vacation is now over, and I don't have as much time to play it. I have some catching up to do on Rock Band!
