    can anyone recommend a place they have recently been able to buy a 360 in the USA that did NOT have a LiteOn drive? i'm about to buy one from Amazon, but i wanted to know if anyone has heard of 360's with LiteOns coming from there.

    I think it would be easier just to check each store, since you can just open the window on the 360 box and read the manufacturer date.

    Manufacturer dates after April 2008
    Lot number after 813

    Are likely to have unflashable Lite-on drive.

    i found a reliable ebay seller (several, actually) who were willing to tell me the lot number. just have to wait for it to arive. i made sure to get a brand new, factory sealed 360 from lot number 809.
