My brand new 360 sounds like a jet engine.  Should I be concerned and return it?

When exactly does it sound this way?  When I first fire mine up it sounds obscene, but it quiets down as I play games...

It has fans that go faster the hotter it gets. Is it well ventilated? Can you tell if it is the fan or the DVD Drive? If you have a very quiet house, it does sound like a jet engine by comparison. Lucky me I have two dogs, a cat, a baby and a staticy baby monitor so I can hardly hear it.  Tongue

It sounds like it in game.  I think that it is the DVD drive.  It actually caused the game ( NFS MW, which i just bought) to bring up the loading screen in game, almost like it is having trouble reading disks.  I am going to try it with something else and see what it does.

Yea, that isn't good.  If it doesn't clear fairly immediately I'd swap that pup out.

Agreed, I talked to BB which is where I had purchased it.  You may remember that It died on me earlier this month and they said since I was still in the 90 manufacturers warranty, they would exchange it and let me keep the 2 yr. replacement plan on it.  Off to best buy I go to try again!!!!  At least I don't have to ship it to MS  icon_lol

Mine sounds the exact same way - jet engine on low when in the Live service, and a jet engine on full blast when playing any games.

I might as well use my warranty through Gamestop to get a quieter one. It's so bad, it keeps me from playing the damn thing.

I remember mine being really loud in the beginning.  I rarely notice it now, not sure if its just because I'm used to it or it quieted down a tad.

Then again, I'm shipping mine in for repairs.   icon_cry

Just how loud of a jet engine? Whenever I play games on DVD, the drive seems pretty loud. But I don't know if it's jet engine loud. The 360 is quiet as a mouse when playing Live Arcade games. Is everyone's DVD drive loud, but maybe not jet engine loud?

Just got my 360 about 3 weeks ago. The DVD drive noise is noticeable, but doesn't make me want to exchange it or anything.

It was really loud.  I could hear it over the sound of the TV which was on 20 if that means anything to you.  Basically, I could hear it over the game unless i had the volumer insanely loud.  Now, that I have a new system, it is super quiet.  I can barely hear it at all with the tv on
