We have went through 2 x-box consoles due to flooding in our house this past summer.  My son has been lost without his. We got him this for Christmas and lets just say, I have to force him to come upstairs to eat and shower.  The design is beatiful!  He has come up a couple of times bragging about how awesome this is.  He is 16 years old and for him to be that thrilled over something must mean something!  He was super excited about the power button and wireless controllers, he originally had an older version so this one has so many new features!  I love that there is such a variety of games you can play, from young kids to adults to family games!

I do have to say these consoles are very durable.  Our previous console had already been through one flood and survived, the second one finally did it in.  It has been moved from house to house and still no problems.  This thing is a lifesaver. It keeps my son home instead of riding around town with friends because we live in a small town where there is nothing to do.

Overall, this is an awesome gaming console and will definitely purchase another if/when this one goes down.

Microsoft's Xbox 360 has undergone some exterior improvements. The new slim model features a lighter console equipped with a touch screen power button. These exterior improvements appeal to many gammers, but the 4 gigabyte hard drive is quite a turn off. Even casual gammer will find themselves running low on storage just after a few saved games. With all the features Microsoft boasts the Xbox 360 is capable of, you think that they would at least make the basic model with more storage to accommodate these features. Features like Xbox Live, Netflix, iHeart Radio, and much more are available on the Xbox 360, but require a lot of storage space to be downloaded. With the 4 gigabyte model, there is barely enough space to save your games let alone to accommodate these features. Even with the lack of storage, the Xbox 360 4 gigabyte slim model boasts superior graphics, internet connectivity, and a handy DVD player. In short, make sure you have a way to add storage on to the system because the factory 4 gigabytes isn't going to cut it. Other than that, the system will provide you with a unique gaming experience full of wonderful graphics, a wide assortment of games (purchased separately) and online multiplayer games (requires internet connectivity).

Graphics Quality
Beautiful high definition graphics makes you forget that you're actually playing a video game.

Game Variety
A large assortment of titles and genres of games. You can purchase these games at retailers, or on the Game Marketplace (included software with the Xbox 360 system).

Controller Comfort
You may find that after a few hours of playing on the Xbox 360, your fingers may start to cramp up. Be sure to take breaks of playing to insure this doesn't happen.

Ease of Use
Very easy to use, but for the first time gammer, it may take some getting used to. The Xbox Live Marketplace (area where apps, games, and movies can be downloaded) can be a bit hard to navigate at times.

Durability
Long hours of play can result in overheating the system. The fan the system comes equipped with isn't quite capable of cooling down the system after extended periods of use. The purchase of an exterior fan to cool the system might not be a bad idea.

      Very compact and extremely plentiful when it comes to features.

      By 

      from USA

      Comments about Microsoft Xbox 360 S Console 4 GB:

      The Xbox 360 S 4gb is a very good value, it has a low price and has flexibility for later down the road when you need to upgrade it. For example, the storage is upgrade-able as you can just buy a xbox 360 S hard drive and just put it into the hard drive slot with no setup required. You can even get different controllers for the xbox. You can also do things such as plug in a keyboard so that you don't have to use the controller. The controllers themselves are even customize-able. You can add headphones(although not normal headphones, only the ones with the smaller jack), or even add a special mini keyboard right on the controller. The xbox 360 also has the extremely large library of games available for many years for the platform, as well as downloadable games from the xbox's marketplace. The xbox 360S truly is a great buy!

      Graphics Quality
      The graphics quality can be very impressive, although it is a little limited. The graphics quality still doesn't really depend on the console itself. It depends more on the game you're playing. The developer determines how good the game will look. Newer games tend to look better, such as GTA 5.

      Game Variety
      The Xbox 360 platform has an immense amount of games. There are games that you may buy physically and then there's a massive amount of games you can buy from the marketplace that you can download onto your console. There really is an absolute endless amount of games you can buy for the xbox, some are even free.

      Controller Comfort
      The controllers are extremely comfortable. They have a very ergonomic shape. Their button and joystick layout is very well placed. The PlayStation controllers don't come near to the comfort of these controllers as they are made to be symmetrical. The xbox controllers aren't about symmetry, they are about efficiency and comfort. The comfort also depends on what controller you have, some times there may be a seam where the two plastic molds meet that may be annoying but you would probably get used to that.

      Ease of Use
      The console itself is very easy to use. The menus and interface that are built in are very cool and fairly easy to use. The interfaces do have plenty of features which it times can be slightly overwhelming but it isn't necessarily a bad thing as more features are a good thing. The interfaces beyond that such as in games and apps depend on their developers. Those interfaces may vary significantly.

      Durability
      The durability of the console is slightly questionable. The Xbox 360 S has improved significantly in terms of durability but still has some problems. The older xbox 360's were plagued by problems such as overheating and hardware failures. The Xbox 360 S has significantly less problems. It still can overheat and freeze if you play it too long, and one of the problems that was also on the previous models is that if you move the console while a game is in it and the console is on, the game disc will become laser burned and scratch. although this isn't too much of a concern for most times, it is extremely risky.

      Love this console

      Comments about Microsoft Xbox 360 S Console 4 GB:

      We bought the Xbox 360 at the end of 2013 just when the Xbox one came out. I agree that the Xbox one would be an amazing buy but we were unwilling to spring for it for an 8 year old. We are delighted with the product except that it does not play blu-ray which was a surprise. We use to to play games, stream and play DVDs. At some juncture, I would like to add the Kinnect system to it.

      Graphics Quality
      We also have the play station 3 and I think the graphics on this console are better. They seem to be more crisp than the play station.

      Game Variety
      We only have this console 3 months but have been happy with the game selection, especially Minecraft!

      Controller Comfort
      We prefer these controllers over the play station 3 controllers. They are easy to use and all my kids, even the 5 year old can negotiate them.

      Ease of Use
      It is pretty easy to use once you get used to it. It was not difficult to hook up.

      Durability
      We have only had it 3 months is it is tough to assess durability. It is in a second home so we have used it infrequently.

      This product is one of the very best things I have ever ever purchased! I was once new tothe gaming community but now with the xbox 360 I am a pro! This product is definitely one to watch out for!

      Graphics Quality
      While depending on the game you are playing the Xbox can handle almost anything. It can take shooting guns to minecraft perfectly. The graphics are always very clean and crisp and lag does not occur often unless trying to play on a lets say beta type game with multiple people.

      Game Variety
      The xbox has just about every game there is to want. The only comment I would have is that they would bring back some older games, however this console can still play the original xbox games.

      Controller Comfort
      The controller for the xbox is fairly large in commparison to the ps3. Even though the controller is large to me I feel as if I have more control of my actions and what I do in the game, howerver it can get uncomfortable if you are used to the ps3 but if not its fine.

      Ease of Use
      This system is so easy to turn on its almost too easy! Its almost like a touch screen!!!

      Durability
      The xbox can be very safely transported from one location to another but if u drop it hard enough it could be slightly to severely damaged.

      A fun--and addicting-- gaming experience for all ages

      Comments about Microsoft Xbox 360 S Console 4 GB:

      As a proud owner (and addict) of my very own Xbox 360, I can say that this system is worth every penny. It is so easy to pour hundreds of hours into gameplay of so many games. Skyrim, obviously one of the more popular games, runs smoothly on the console and makes it easy to continue on into the higher levels. As is, there may not be enough hard drive space for what you may need as a gamer, but for any casual gamer it is more than enough. For us more avid gamers, it's not very hard to either set up for more gigabyte storage or to have more cloud storage. So whatever type of gamer you are, there is definitely room to play with this console.

      The gamestore makes it easy to try out a lot of new games before actually buying them. It has simple arcade and puzzle games, user generated Indie games, and even popular new titles that could also be bought in stores. Lastly, Xbox Live (with the addition of Xbox Gold in particular) makes connecting with friends near and far easy. You can play with your best friends no matter what continent they live on!

      Durability
      Pro tips: Make sure not to move the Xbox while there is still a game in the console. It is also better for the console to be on its side rather than standing tall.

      Doing things like that will ensure that your Xbox will live a long healthy life :)
