I'm looking for HDMI xboxs on eBay. Should I bother asking the sellers what the motherboard is which can be very confusing for someone who isn't a techie? I don't want to waste money and time waiting for it to be a Zephyr but it's also very tedious waiting for replies. So what are my chances of getting a Zephyr out of a Jasper and Falcon? Should I bother asking? Do you bother asking when looking for Xboxs to mod? Cheers

If it gives you a clear enough picture of the serial on the back, look at the amperage.
14,2A is a Falcon - 12,1A is a Jasper.

Ah cheers. Unfortunately the seller I'm looking at right now hasn't shown the serial or replied to my question but I'll look out for that when I'm finding consoles

Whenever I'm shopping for consoles on eBay, I always check the amperage/power socket. Most sellers will have photos that you can zoom in on to determine the motherboard revision. If not I always just shoot them a PM and tell them exactly what I need them to look at (the amperage).

It may be tedious to wait, I agree, but waiting is WAY better than just going ahead with a purchase and ending up with a Xenon or Zephyr. IMO, in general (and ESPECIALLY for RGH), Xenon and Zephyrs and just a whole heap of trouble. Falcon and Jasper consoles are a great choice.
