Tempted to trade in my out of warranty slim for this... What do you guys think?

Better deal than I got for the same package by about $10. If you're tempted, go for it, I doubt you'll get a better bang for your buck on a 360s than in this package.

Dammit, why couldn't this have come up a month ago. My original Elite's CD drive was acting up, and I wanted a replacement.

Holiday bundle huh? The Easter Bunny upgrade from marshmallow peeps?

Is this just the standard price for this now? It has been like this at newegg for about a week iirc.

@awildmalcolm: Just checked Newegg since I posted that deal a while back. It is back to $299.

@awildmalcolm: It's been 250 for a while... the deal is the extra $25 Amazon Gift Card.

@jeremytheindian: No point in trading in a slim as a preventative measure, unless you've had any problem with it. The slims have proven (thus far) to be pretty reliable.

For the record, the "Jasper" version of the phat xbox, the final chipset revision of the original model, has also been pretty reliable. These are the ones that have on-board flash memory (either 256 or 512MB). The RROD was of course a major problem with the earlier versions.

@djp519: Well I was about to open it up and lubricate the fan because I think it's being louder than it should.

Also consider I only paid $209 for my system, so I would only be loosing 9 dollars if I traded it to amazon for $200.

Still feel the same? I'm conflicted.

@jeremytheindian: $9 for a 1-yr warranty isn't too shabby! especially when you get a 3-month xbl card and 2 games to go with it lol

@devexityspace: It would be more like $30 plus another $30 for a second controller... I may have just talked myself out of it.

Thanks for this post! I've wanted an xbox for quite a while. I used this with my Amazon points and got it down to $149. Gonna be a fun weekend!

@jeremytheindian: "Loosing"? It's LOSING (in addition, LOSE, not loose). One "O", not two. For example, when you don't win, you LOSE, like you do at everything in life. If something is not tight, it's loose, like your mom or you girlfriend. Got it?

@maximusgluteus: You really went out of your way to be a grammer huh? RIP'd deal from 2 days ago and all you can do if find an extra "o" that I accidentally put in my post. There are so man things to see and do here at Deals.Woot. Don't waste your time on me, I'm a lost cause.
