Best way to remove dust that's inside the 360?

Is compressed air recommended?

No, I've read that vacuuming the vents is the best way. I don't think you really want to be shooting compressed air into your 360.

People say vacuums are bad for whatever reason, but it's always worked just fine for me. Then they recommend compressed air, which couldn't make any less sense.

I'd understand that with a PC tower you've got cracked open so the air/dust has a chance to go somewhere, but inside a console, you're really just stirring dust around as far as I can tell, and that can't be good. Maybe these people got that advice from a repair guy who did open up consoles to fix them and then just relayed the information out of context, I dunno.

Opening it ups the best way.DONT use compressed air though.

You could do that, just remember you void your warranty the second you remove the case, though. Don't ask me how they'd know.

there's a pressure sticker on the back that changes color if you remove it
