I am looking into buying a used (original) Xbox. However I am aware that there have been several different hardware versions and am trying to find information on the specific differences and advice on which one to buy.
Conventional logic dictates that the most recent version is the best such as the second version of the Sega Genesis, however that is not always true. For example, many people recommend getting a Sega Dreamcast that was made before October 2000 because the later ones won't read burned discs while providing no worthwhile bug-fixes.
Can anyone help with version information or suggestions for the original Xbox?
