How do I know if its a falcon
 
The replacement box from the rrod repair has a manufacturing date of 21 december 2007, but I am not really sure its a falcon. How do I check if its a falcon???

is this info anywhere other than the box? I heard that these replacements are generally refurbished boxes that have a new serial #

On the outside of the newer boxes there is a white sticker, on the bottom left it should read "175w" instead of "205w"

It should have a little Han Solo in it.

Oh sorry, in which case look at the sticker on the back of the console that says what it's power requirements are. The sticker is near the graphics port.

With that manufacturing date, it must have the 65nm CPU in it.

By now, the 90nm CPUs stock should have been completely exhausted. Your replacement probably came out straight out of the assembly line, considering the date when it was manufactured.

The stock had not been exhausted in Canada when I sent my console in a couple of weeks ago.
