"After being on the phone with microsoft and being told it would cost $90 to fix my xbox I decided to try out this guide. I was receiving the dirty disk error and followed the instructions on cleaning the laser, needless to say my xbox is reading games like new and I saved a lot of time and money because of this guide! I was a bit skeptical at first but now I highly recommend this product!"

"I used the guide to add LED's to my Xbox. The finished product looks great, and installation was a breeze thanks to the Xbox Repair Guide"

"I had to write and tell you what an awesome job you did with your guide! I had purchased other guides from Ebay before but none of them even come close to the amount of information you include.

PS. Thanks for being so honest also, I had no idea my broken system was worth so much. I am going to have to start buying more systems so I can resell the parts"
