So I heard it was supposed to run cooler, but I don't see how with the same HW as the S model. CNET review says it runs cooler...but I don't know. Sounds like Microsoft Money to me.


It's got the same cooling system in a smaller package, which means it's working harder, so it's not working cooler at all.

The fact that the E actually has less to offer for the same price is rather insulting. As long as the S is still on store shelves, there is absolutely no point in buying the E.

the only reason to maybe go with the E is if your cat frequently powers off your slim (because of the slim's huge touch sensitive power button and sensitive disc tray button). it's only a few millimeters smaller, and doesn't look as nice as the slim

The solution to that is not buying new hardware, it's protecting your 360 from your cat.

I thought there was a 3.5 mm port in the rear. If so, I think one could use Toslink to Mini Digital Optical SPDIF Audio Cable. Though I'm not sure and an audiophile should be consulted.

No matter, the E model is not as nice as the S model.
