Is it normal to have a grinding noise?

I just returned it and got a new one, it still makes the same noise but its alot quieter, im guessing its normal, it sounds like a pc

I actually think they might have sold me a used console because the other one i got came with more protective packaging, the AC had a plastic cover on the tip and the tape was different

Sorry for triple post but i just spent 450$

The humming sound the console makes is the same one the power brick does when instant on setting is turned on, is it normal? All xbox cant be broken

I guess if you need another post telling you that any loud sound is not normal for the it is.
I will try and see it from your point of view, but I doubt we'll be able to fit both our heads up there.

Is it quiet when you first power up the console and the noise starts only when the installation progress comes up and continues onwards?

Electronics make noise. Depending on how sensitive your ears are, it can be incredibly loud or whisper quiet.

When you add in the "cost a lot of money variable", your ears tend to get more sensitive.

Do you own a PS4? Maybe turn that on standby to drown out the X1's noise :)
