Wow, it’s so hard to even begin to explain my enormous level of dissatisfaction with this 360 Slim compatible power supply (partially because I generally expect a product to actually perform it’s job at least until the 30 day warranty expires but mostly because I’m a second time sucker for this inert hunk of cheap plastic and even cheaper Chinese components that somehow are the actual BRIGHT SPOTS when compared to the slipshod assembly of this $15 paperweight). I’m not a heavy user of my 360 so a year ago after my original power supply failed I ordered this same product. It was significantly less expensive than a Miicrosoft replacement and at the time the reviews were xbox 360 slim power cord relatively mixed but balanced, on the whole. I went ahead and purchased it (since common sense says any item will naturally skew towards more negative reviews than positive because those with issues are much more likely to leave a review than someone who’s pleased with their purchase as there’s little incentive to leave a positive review when compared to the veritable mountain of motivation a dissatisfied customer has to post one). Needless to say after 9 months of noisy operation it failed. Seeing as I’m a light user of my console I just sighed and went on to something else, my inoperable 360 barely crossing my mind for 3 months. Then I realized it was December and my son (who’s a very heavy 360 user) would be coming to stay with me for 10 days beginning December 26 (he’s 15, lives with my ex in NC and our holidays together have been those 10 post Christmas days since our divorce and my subsequent move back to Texas). Suddenly the fact I needed to replace the power supply again became a pressing concern. No worries, I’ll just hop on Amazon and order a replacement to arrive before Christmas with time to spare before his arrival.
