Xbox slim or xbox 360 E?

#1SILENTGHOSTS96Posted 4/16/2014 12:13:28 PM
so Im upgrading my console my arcade has terrible internet problems and is loud as mofo. MY internet problems are from using my pc as a wifi adapter which gives me problems on games that dont have dedicated servers. ANY who whats better that will last me long I had a slim but the disc drive went fast. Should I get a xbox 360 slim with a 320 gb hdd or a xbox e with a 250. I can get either one for $140 which will last me longer im fine with just 250gb space btw

Elites still have a potential for the RROD issue. So, with that said, I'd go for a Slim over an Elite any day.

I think by 'E' he means the Xbox 360 E.

Slim S is the superior system, the E model was a downgrade compared to the Slim S.

They removed one of the USB ports and the Digital Optical Audio output port from the E model. If you plan on running a good surround sound system or headset, you'll need that DOAO port.

The extra USB port would come in handy for either 2 more wired controllers, or 2 more USB sticks to increase storage space.

I have a new xbox 360 e that gets great surround sound with an hdmi cable. It has been a good system. Load faster than my original elite model.

If your TV has an Optical Audio output port (TOSLINK), then that's all well and good. Otherwise, you'll be missing the TOSLINK port on the 360 S.

Most TV's that have a toslink port only output stereo sound through that port, so that's not really the best way to get surround sound, the best way is from it's original source, not massively delayed through a "3rd party source".
