      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Would be an ideal gift for an XBox 360 owner, but not useful other than for customisation.

      Reading this review you are likely to be a Microsoft XBox 360 owner, or perhaps someone you know owns one. The Xbox 360 is, in my opinion, a plain looking games console. Compared to other consoles around, it looks quite stylish, although coming in a very plain white or glossy black colour they can always do with brightening up. Microsoft sell the faceplates as a means to customise your individual XBox in whichever design you want. At around £10 the faceplates come in a wide range of designs, ranging from this 'HotRod' design to a wooden effect faceplate - there is something for everyone.

      The faceplates are very high quality, with a scratch and peel resistant finish. Also, you can even go onto the XBox Live Marketplace to download the matching faceplate theme for your XBox 360 dashboard, how cool is that?! No other console offers this level of customisation, and Microsoft are real experts at getting the most out of each of their customers financially!

      The reasoning behind the faceplate in the first place is to protect the DVD tray and memory slots from dust and other particles, and is the only part of the casing that can easily be replaced by the user. The HotRod faceplate simply takes the place of your existing faceplate and is a direct replacement part. There are also 'skins' that are simply stickers that you can put on the XBox 360 to entirely cover the machine and are another option of customisation. Personally, when it comes to customisation, I would stick to the faceplate as they are cheap and simple to apply.
