Directed at you - the ONLY time I hear that loud noise is at boot up. Also, I'll hear it if there is a vibration due to me having it set down wrong or the media inside is off a little. If those two things are okay I can never hear it at all.
I am pretty sure i have that old one, the one before Micro$oft did their little heatsink/cooler revision. I bought it in early 06 which should have been before that time. So mine sounds that way the whole time i am using it. Only when playing a game, though. But yeah the loud sound that you probly hear when you fire yours up, i hear that for the duration of the time that i am playing a game lol.
I just turn my TV up a little louder, but really it's something they should have thought out better.
Since i am naming off bugs, i will also say that half of the time, the disc tray sticks shut and i have to wiggle the xbox to get it to open. Also, no matter what i will get a disc read error the first time i fire up the box for the day. I will play for like 10 min, then the error. Then, no problem. This occurs with brand new discs.
It almost seems like the console makers have to learn the hard way that being cheap doesn't pay. The PS2 had all kinds of problems, and Sony ended up paying through the nose. PS3, not so bad.
