I got it for the music, movie and video features
Comments about Microsoft Xbox 360 4 GB Gaming Console:
I'm not a gamer and this is my first foray into any kind of game device. I do like the music and video potential of the Xbox. So far I have watched an Xbox live event, a movie via Amazon and linked to my Windows 8 (customer preview) system to stream music and videos. This looks like a winning combo. The controller is easy and intuitive. I have the Xbox connected to my receiver via HDMI and then to my TV. No issues with that. I also found it easy to add the Xbox to my network. At first I was worried that it only supports 100Mbps, but found no problem with HD videos. It does not support .flv format, which I find to be a limitation. As far as music goes, you can't really set up a playlist via the Xbox. I was able to create and save one on the Windows 8 machine and then access it via the Xbox. I think this this should prove to be satisfactory. I also attached a USB drive to play music. Who knows, I may even have to buy a game or two. One thing that is annoying to me is that you can't turn off the sounds generated when you move around the Xbox menu.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I don't even play video games, but this thing does a lot more than I expected.
Lots of fun!
I enjoy the xbox and my 3 year old and 6 year old love to play it! I only wish I could use my own netflix account instead of having to buy Live.
This is a great product

I really like the Xbox 360 live service and its features, the built in wireless worked flawlessly, and it is dead silent when on.

Good system they finally put in wifi there is some decent xbox only titles like gears of war and halo but i'm more of a ps3 guy. good system if they upgrade to blue ray disc like sony the xbox would be top notch and get rid of there multidisc games
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Pro Fixed red ring of death Smaller integrated wireless card Games that are good a lot of them buttons are operated with a lighter touch making it easier to clean. Cons Easy tipped over Hard to remove ether net cable. eject bottom is not back light Does not come with a hard drive. Flash memory way to small.
