    He says it works. It does come with a 120 GB official hard drive.
    The DVD tray sticks sometimes. But it doesn't come with any cords/controllers. Is this a good deal?
    I think it's worth it just for the hard drive alone.
    I searched Amazon and eBay for 120 GB XBOX 360 hard drives and can't find anything cheaper than $20.00

    Depending upon the model then the DVD tray might just be a bit sticky. If you can pull it apart and clean it then it will spring back to life. Even if it was a pain then there are a bunch of hacks (see JTAG and RGH) and after that you can use your shiny 120 gig drive or USB to load games from.
    Controllers I am seeing go for not a lot at car boot sales and yard sales and what have you.
    Power supply wise it should be able to take any other supply on the original style 360 -- it was the lowest power version so its thing is blocked from the older ones but
    Video wise it is HDMI so go with that, if not VGA leads exist.
    Reliability wise then the jasper line is as good as it got for the original style 360.

    Game wise then there are loads of nice things for the 360, less if you had a gaming PC throughout its life and currently but if not and if you can't be bothered to play on the PC (and even better if you have a hacked 360) then you can have a great time.

    Pretty much what FAST said.
    I'd go for it.
    You pretty much have nothing to lose.

    Totally, $20 is a steal for a jasper, or any 360 really, and you can fix the disc tray, not a big deal
