The X360 USB Pro is a device that allows you to read, modify, and repair a Xbox 360 disc drive. As well as make 2.5" Western Digital Hard Drives compatible with the Xbox 360, so that you won't have to buy a expensive Microsoft branded HDD. The CK3i, is a power supply that sends, well power to your Xbox 360 disc drive in order to modify/fix/read it. With the help of the HDD Power Adapter, it can also supply power to a HDD allowing you to read, and modify it however you see fit.

Packaging, and Contents X360 USB Pro Module CK3i Module 2x Mini USB Cables 1x USB Power Supply Sata Cable 2x Power Cables (Normal one, and one with Probe 3 extension) Wall Power Supply Probe 3 Power convertor (For HDD Power.) Design, and Impressions Design The X360 USB Pro, and CK3i are both very nice and sleek. They both feature a "see through" design, so you can see all the little circuitry on the boards, and the X360 USB Pro has a image at the bottom of it of the icon for the Jungle Flasher utility. The CK3i also has two buttons (Which are very responsive I might add.), and basically a killswitch the allows you to control whether or not power is given to the Xbox 360 disc drive. The buttons on the CK3i are evenly space and labeled, so there's no worry about pressing the wrong button on accident. Impressions My impressions of the design are quite good in terms of placement of buttons, and the look of the units in whole. However I do have a a concern, or two. The plastic feels a bit weak, and thought if you hold it too tightly it might crack. The other issue is related somewhat to the other one, when I plug in the DVD Drive power supply to thee CK3i it makes a crunching sound, which worries me a bit in terms of how long it's going to last. Checking the unit itself I can't see any cracking, or damage. Besides those two issues, I have no other complaints. I'm in particular favor of the activity LEDs which allow me to know that it's still functioning properly and that everything's plugged in alright. Set-up and Usage Hardware The hardware set up is quite simple. Let's start with the X360 USB Pro. Plug the included USB Power Supply, and mini USB Cable into the corresponding slots and plug the actually USB ends into yours computer. Next, plug the Sata cable included into the sata port on your X360 USB Pro and plug the other end of the sata cable into your Xbox 360's disc drive. That's it for setting up the X360 USB Pro, next up is the CK3i which is just as easy to set up. First off, plug your DVD Drive power supply cable into the CK3i's DVD drive power slot and plug the other end of the cable into the corresponding power supply port on your Xbox 360's DVD Drive. (Depending on your model of Xbox 360 Disc Drive you might need the probe, and or other devices. Follow the same steps, except use the power supply cable with the Probe 3 extension and connect the Probe 3 to the end of the extents ion.) From there plug in your USB cable connect it to your computer and plug the power supply into a wall outlet, and you're all set up hardware wise. Once set up, software wise I'd recommend to follow the Jungle Flasher tutorial which goes in depth on grabbing your Xbox 360's Disc Drive keys, and installing CFW on your Xbox 360's disc drive in order to play burned games. A link can be found at the end of the Software set up section of this review. Software Time to set up your X360 USB Pro, and CK3i in order to get them to work with Jungle Flasher. Download the drivers for the X360 USB Pro, and CK3i below extract and store them some place where you'll remember them. Now plug in your X360 USB Pro into your computers USB ports and wait for windows to pop up with a "New Hardware has been found" notification. When it asks you if you want Windows to search for drivers automatically, select no and browse for the drivers manually. Point Windows to the place where you extracted the X360 USB Pro drivers, and press ok. The driver should install, and your X360 USB Pro should pop up under your Device manager. Next up is the CK3i, plug it into your computer via USB port and follow the same procedure and point it to where your extracted the CK3i drivers. Now, download Jungle Flasher (There's a link to it, at the end of this section.) , and extract it to a place you'll remember. Once extracted go into the Jungle Flasher folder and inside there should be a "libusb" folder inside that there will be a "libusb.dll" file, copy or move that file to the previous folder (Jungle Flasher folder.) so it's in the same directory as JunglerFlasher.exe. If you plan on installing CFW to your Xbox 360's Disc Drive, you will need to download it separately. (No link, due to the possibility that it has Microsoft's code in it, but a quick google search for the "Latest Xbox 360 LT Plus Firmware" should get you what you need".) Once downloaded extract the files into a folder in the JungleFlasher folder called firmware. You're all set, now. I'd recommend to follow the Jungle Flasher tutorial which goes in depth on grabbing your Xbox 360's Disc Drive keys, and installing CFW on your Xbox 360's disc drive in order to play burned games. A link can be found below. X360 USB Drivers CK3i Drivers Jungle Flasher Tutorial Performance I must say, I haven't had a single issue with using the X360 USB Pro, or CK3i in conjunction with Jungle Flasher. Along with the use of the Jungleflasher tutorial I was able to successfully able to flash a Benq drive with 0800 firmware, (For those who do not know, that firmware allows you to dumping your own legit copies of Xbox 360 games as a regular PC DVD reader isn't able to.) after grabbing the keys from it. I was also able to get the keys from, and flash a Liteon disc drive with CFW. I hadn't actually used Jungleflasher before, so from a novice perspective it's relatively simple. I didn't have any spare 2.5" Western Digital HDDs lying around so, I wasn't able to try out making my own Xbox 360 HDD. Conclusion I'd give it a 8/10 the build quality of the X360 USB Pro is really the only thing bringing it down, I'm quite worried about the lifespan of one. However, Team Xecuter have a "backed" warranty on it so if it breaks you can ship it to them, for a repair or replacement. I've messaged support asking how long the warranty is, so I'll update this review when I get my response. If you don't have a computer with Sata ports, or have a laptop and want to repair/replace/install CFW on your Xbox 360's Disc Drive then the X360 USB Pro bundle w/CK3i and Probe 3 is perfect for you.
