Refurb 360 Premium, $299.00

Any gotcha's for ordering a refurb?

Will I get the new 3 year warranty Microsoft is giving out?

Can I stream content from my home file server through the 360 like I do with my modded xbox?

keep in mind the warranty only applies to a specific type of unexplained death, the 3 red lights. At least that's my understanding.

Correct. I think you only get a 90-day warranty for everything else, but I could be wrong. It's been awhile since I've followed this stuff.

If it's a MS-direct refurb, you should still be able to buy an extended warranty from Microsoft.

When they did the original warranty extension from 90-day to 1-year, that was for everything. However, the 3-year extension is *only* for the 3-red-lights-thingy. (At least, as I understand it)

That's the way I understand it as well. So at the very least you'll have the 1 year warranty from the manufacture date.

As for streaming media it's not nearly as good as XBMC, the interface is kind of lacking. But if you set up Orb or Tversity you can share music and some internet radio streams and listen to them while playing games. (It's really nice to have for racing games with weak repetitive soundtracks)

If you have s fast enough computer you can also stream HD video that the old Xbox just can't play.

Well once you break it then just go in there and melt some shit until you get the 3 rings of death.

That's what I was agreeing to. My 90-day statement was directed toward the normal warranty because it's a refurb. I wasn't sure if that was still only a 90 day, or if they have it at 1 year for refurbs also.

Rumors are on the table that the 360 will drop in price sometime soon. I would wait and see how those rumors pan out. It's very possible that a price decrease could be ahead to jockey with Sony's recent price cut.

Whoops. Sorry for the confusion then.
