xenon can take 2 types of kv's and the others can not. For offline use get some free games with it or something....

for offline use, why the Falcon, and not the Jasper?

seems like jasper is best jtag, just because the gpu and cpu chips are 65 nm.. while on the falcon, the gpu is 90 nm... soo, less chance of RRoD .

I was unaware that motherboard revisions added different capabilities to consoles. And @ the other people talking about which is best, Jasper.

top two for offline use are falcons and jaspers.... jaspers cost more than falcons because there arent very many of them due to the fact that most jaspers had a kernal of above 7371 straight outta the factory....... xbox motherboards go like this( this is going by which was released first etc)......xenon,zephyr,falcon,and jasper. and like fine wine xboxes get better with age

how many others are there? also, is a falcon not good then for online use such as lobbies? I'm buying one from Nate tomorrow and there's only a 10 dollar difference in the xenon and the falcon.I'm planning on using it for lobbies mostly but if the falcon will work online and better overall then I'd like to know because 10 dollars is not that much.xenon or falcon. expert opinion here, which one should i get? Does the xenon being able to take 2 types of kv's make it any easier to get unbanned or something?..sorry for all the questions, I think my brain just had diarrhea for a minute there!!! :lol:

Personally xenon > all.

You're not using it for GB or to impress friends stupid stuff like that. So you don't need HDMI. Xenons are also cheaper, and they take any type of KV (type 2 are very hard to find) the only con is they get RROD more often. But if you take care of it it's easily preventable. The higher the console price pretty much depends on RROD (Unless you care about hdmi)

Ways to prevent rrod:
Some people leave case off (Personally I don't like to)
Hot rock case (tells you temperature and lights up according to temp change and tells you when to turn off)
Keep it in a open area
12v Mod or Whisper fan on High
Don't leave it on duh!
