So yesterday we unboxed the brand new Xbox 360 Slim, designed to look like the Xbox One, and also be lighter, slimmer, and quieter. Today we put that to the test - is it really quieter?
There's a mistake in the video, you said the new slim has a quieter start-up than the original but you didn't seem to realise that the disc was already in the tray. Of course the new console is going to start up quieter without a disc in the tray.
Yeah I realise that the second part of the start up was due to the disc being in the tray, but the initial start up, with or without a disc, is slightly louder.
@ video, cool....now set it on its side when reading the disk!! Lol
My 2010 slim is silent (except when the disc is in the tray booting up) but it's the power pack that makes the noise.
You're absolutely right. I didn't even realize this until a few months ago when I put my ear by the power brick and realized THAT was what made all the noise.
my white xbox 360 is very quiet, except for when it is turned on, in which case it is deafeningly loud.
I had the first slim and it was LOUD when reading discs.
i deem this version the xbone 360 there was nothing wrong with the old model ;). Next thing there will we a windows start up screen :D.
