Microsoft Xbox

 

Powerful hardware, can play DVDs, offers online gaming capability.

Big and heavy, DVD play requires optional remote.

Impressive power, some notable hardware, and a growing list of games make the Xbox a good all-around gaming machine.

No small feat With a front-loading disc tray, two buttons, and four controller ports adorning the face, the monstrous case will look at right at home among your other home-theater components. Inside this eight-pound box you'll find the power of a PC (a...

Best under-the-hood specs; built-in broadband adapter; 8GB hard drive for music and saved-game storage; high-resolution display support.

Big and bulky; separate kit required to unlock DVD-viewing capability; no progressive-scan DVD playback.

The Xbox is the most versatile console and perfectly complements a home-theater system.

Introduction With a few exceptions, playing video games on a console has always been a more enjoyable experience than on a home computer. In the '80s, the simplicity of popping a game cartridge into an Atari 2600 or Intellivision and blasting aliens on...

Good for playing older games that won't work on an 360

 

Nice product, especially good if you can get it cheap. Great because: there are still stacks of older games you can buy or rent for it, it's larger than the 360 so it cools down more efficiently and has no 'Red Ring of Death', wide variety of...

Big 'n chunky, plenty of room for parts to cool down, no 'Red Ring of Death

The older the Xbox, the more chance it has at breaking down

Nice because it has a hard drive unlike PS2

 

I have owned an XBOX for around a year now and I haven't experienced much problems using it. The only problem it gave me is its music CD playback which won't play music stored in a CD burned using WMP. Its game library has several nice games and GTA...

Design is pretty nice, the selection of games is also nice but fewer than the Playstation 2. Has a hard drive which means the ; memory card is not essential

The hard drive is just 8GB and there's no available upgrade and the controller is big and chunky. Quite problematic in audio ; CD playback

The best gaming console around until the 360

 

I believe MS really did a good job with this console. I was an early adopter and I still use my old Xbox to play some older games to this day. The 360 was an excellent continuation of the line. It's fun to use and offers a variety of entertainment...

Graphics are incredible, games are superb, easy to use, offers Live service, and can easily be networked to other consoles for mass multiplayer matches

Size, perhaps, but nothing else
