Well, to be honest, it appers it´s not the same problem, if this is a problem at all.

In my case the noise only happens when I go from a digital game to the an other and only for a few seconds. I start noticing after the July update.

How is the intensity of the noise? The reporting are saying it is really loud and happen all the time while not gaming (in the dashboard).

There is the possibility to be a update but MS didn't found or reported what is causing it yet.

Most people are not being affected... the thing is getting bigger because some Tier 2 countries received a full batch of Xbones that did have the issue.


The sound is similar to the Youtube video, like the HDD or the Disc drive seeking and jumping a position, but not that loud or constant.

It´s still quieter than my notbook and it´s not even close to the 360 noise level.

Friend of mine who had ordered the FiFa 15 + Forza 5 kinectless bundle had this issue. He said it sounded like a mtrix printer. He immediately brought it back after setup (didn't bother downloading the games) and the shop offered a replacement but said it would likely be the same. They had been getting a lot back already.
Other option, send it in for repairs, but who's going to send something in for repairs on the first day...
Then they offered him a ps4 when he asked for his money back. Since he already has that, he just wanted a refund. He'll try again with the white Sunset Overdrive bundle. Should be different hardware.

Bad first impression, not a good idea after 360's notorious start.

Regardless of who starts the thread, it's news and information. Like "OMG" can you handle that?



It's coil whine. I wouldn't worry about it unless the noise is unbearable.



It's just that simple.

you don't pay 399-499 and not worry about a known defect.



It's the sound a lonely console makes when it yearns for its companion that had been promised never to be removed from its side



“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”
