    My console has just been delivered from UPS. The letter inside says that they have exchanged my console. The date on the back of this new console is 21/12/08.

    So is this a refurbished unit with a new label on it with the date of refurbishment?

    Or Is this a brand new unit and perhaps one of these Jasper units everyone is talking about? (A long shot I know)

    Bye the way it was console only, no new power pack or anything, will a jasper run off the old power pack?

    AFAIK MS send a new power brick with Jaspers, although they don't need to.

    I'm actually betting it is a refurbished console that died really quickly after being purchased, probably bricked by the NXE update. MS don't change the labels. If it is a Jasper it will say 12.1A somewhere near the S/N/

    Mike,

    At the moment it would only be a Jasper if it's an Arcade model. If it's an Arcade and the label says 12V 12.1A then it's a Jasper.

    Regards,

    Simon

    Thanks for the replies guys,

    Looks like your right. Unfortunately its says 16.5A. So I've got a recently knackered but refurbished unit.

    Ahh well, never mind, we'll see how long number 6 lasts then.

    On a side note.
    The previous console was repaired just a coupe of months ago for a new DVD drive, for which I had to pay and was given a one year warranty with it. What kind of warranty will I now have?? Another one full year for non RROD failures and 3 years for RROD?? On the Xbox web site, the details have not been updated and the serial number is for my old console which states the warranty expires 23/12/09.

    The only way to find out is online in the device manager. MS seem to give random warranties.

    Do I need to register this new console?

    The details online are for the old one.

    If it has a different S/N then MS should have done it, but do it to be safe.
