Are the Xbox 360 Elite consoles just as reliable as the Xbox 360 S?

Not quite, but almost, i've had my Elite for 4 years and it works as well as it always has.

jesus christ, so there's no pre-Slim 360 consoles that are better built than the others? I heard good things about jasper and falcon chips, any experiences?

The elite is better built, they can still RROD but it's far less likely.

Just buy a slim. They're super quiet too compared to the old style.

My elite red ringed. Fortunately it was still under MS warranty.

If you don't want to get a slim just get a newer Arcade Unit.

Buy a slim or don't buy a 360 at all.

IIRC Jasper was the best chip and evolved into the Slim. That being said the Elite 360 was simply a package and had a run through all the chips.

Which is why everyone is saying it still can. If you find a Jasper 360 it will be reliable whether or not it is an Elite or an Arcade.
