OK so far so good, as is the case every time I buy a Xbox console. It’s always the first one that is bad. The second one normally serves me well. So far all seems to be well with the system. No issues seen like the other one. So far no blinking in and outs. Faithfully this system will work to the point that it allows me to really test and review the unit fairly. Without the failures just on the surface it looks amazing. It’s pretty, slim, and potentially the best console I have ever owned. But only fair unrestricted use to the console will confirm this. More soon.
