Buying my first Xbox... Mods and Banning?

I have been wanting 2 get a 360 for years, and now with GameStop's $99 price, I will be getting one used soon. But ive been hearing a lot about bans and mods, and dont want 2 pick up a modded or banned console. How can I tell if something is wrong with it so i dont get banned or something? and i cant get one new, im on a budget, my current system is a n64... DON'T LAUGH.  Or maybe how can I restore an xbox thats modified?

N64s rock :) No seriously, it's my favorite system.


Anyway, there is NO way to tell if a 360 is banned or not barring trying to use it on live.

Worse still. there is no way PERIOD to tell is a console is modified but not banned yet.


I hear gamestop's return policy is fairly loose. Remember, banned console =/= banned gamer. If you get a banned used console from them, just exchange it for another. They can't ALL be modded...
