I'm heading home for 3 weeks of leave on Friday and am taking my Xbox One with me, however I'm wondering what might be the best way to pack it. Do you think it'd be alright if I put it back in the box with those little carton things that covered the four corners and pack that in a suitcase surrounded by some clothes?
I know I should probably fly with it as a carry on, but I hate having carry on's other than my laptop bag. It's always a pain to get overhead storage and unless you can find storage right at your seat it makes getting off the plane a pain, especially with a connecting flight.
I've flown with my 360 a few times and usually just wrap it tight with clothes in a suitcase. It's never suffered damage but game cases have cracked. The box is a little bulky, I might even just wrap it in a couple layers of bubble wrap and put it in the suitcase.
What do you think?
I was also going to purchase trip insurance through USAA, but for baggage it has a per item limit of $250 coverage...
