    Still, with 3 month guarantee, what could possible go wrong?

    Why new?? Cash Converters in my high street often have them for £40-50 inc 3mth warranty. You can often haggle a bit as well last one I got was a v1.6 crystal for £40 with all leads, box and a controller!! I have purchased quite a few for mates and chipped them with no problems.

    These are the games in the offer:
    Halo 2
    Arcade Treasures 2
    Hot Wheels Stunt Track
    Men of Valour
    Van Helsing

    Only Halo 2 is any worth.

    Hey, they're still FREE aren't they? There's still the option of buying the box at £99.00 on it's own.

    Hmmm, bit of a dilemma there. "Do I take the box and 5 FREE games or just the box on it's own for the same price?"

    Don't get me wrong, I'm not knocking it, but you can get the box on its own for £80 delivered from play. You can pick up Halo 2 for around a tenner on ebay. So it works out cheaper if you're not interested in those extra games.

    I was under the impression that not all samsung xbox drives are equal, the original samsung drives that shipped with the first xbox's read nearly everything whereas the latter sammys for the newer xbox's are just as bad as the other brands?
