Xbox 360 E earns 8 out of 10 reparability score

Though Microsoft has painted a large bulls-eye on their Xbox One for more than one reasons on a regular basis, Xbox 360-E has received a very respectable 8 out of 10 reparability score at iFixit!

During the teardown, it was pointed out that the top and bottom panels were easier to remove compared to the previous design of Xbox 360. To add more, the absence of chrome bezels made it easier to remove the casing as there were fewer clips to pop out.

It was also added that the system was modular in design, and it used cards and connectors instead of games in most areas which contributed to the ease of disassembling and reassembling the console. The Hard drives, fan, Wi-Fi card, RF Module and even the front panel button board were very easy to remove.

One of the disappointing points was that though the hard drive can be easily accessed for an upgrade, it requires the hard drive to be purchased from Microsoft despite using a Seagate 250GB 5400 RPM drive and changing/upgrading that on your own will violate Xbox Live’s terms and Conditions. Yikes!!
