Dont or you'll die of a RROD.
These days theres really no reason to buy a refurb anyhow, the slim 4gb is so cheap.
But if your dumb and going that route anyhow, make sure to get a manufature date after 2009,
Then you'll probably just suffer a broken dvd drive later in its life span,

Buy a new one.


That, 100%.

Don't buy one that isn't new, sealed in the box.

ether buy it from gamestop and get the warrenty with it

cause my friend went through two referbished 360's but his current one is okay for nearly half a year....
