Had my 2tb Xbox One S from launch and love it!
However, recently discovered a minor problem with it and wondered if anyone else was experiencing the same thing!
So, since getting my One S I've always used it horizontally. Its always been nice and quiet with no problems.
But we've had to move the living room around to accommodate the Christmas tree, and this necessitates that the Xb1 now be placed vertically in its stand.
But in this position, it buzzes! LOUDLY.
Its not the fan or power supply, and the buzzing comes and goes, even when turned off in instant on mode. Seems to start once the console has been powered up for a couple of minutes and warms up.
It seems to be the casing vibrating slightly as light pressure between the bottom and top housings stops the noise.
If it was held together by screws, then a slight tightning would stop the noise. But the bloody things just all clips :-(
Wonder how many other xb1s would do this when put vertically lol
well it's not the HDD. nothing else makes a noise. it'll be the fan or psu. most likely the fan i think. the XB1S has a lot of issues with the fan. i returned mine because it was so loud. it would be fine when starting it up but after a while it would start making loud clicking noises. probably because of it heating up and having to spin faster.
i would recommend returning it.
