    The more data there is, the less strict any kind of pattern between revision and serial appears to be, except for White LU7 = 40+.
    And that -60s (re: AVL) are relatively rare.

    As nintendo used the S/Ns to verify you actually owned the console, they are calculated with an algorithm to make them seem fairly random (so even though they were sequential until they ran out, pushing them to start with 7, it doesn't appear that way). As for the 60s, they were the last revision of the board before the family Wiis, so there were not many of them.

    There are jumps between -20, -40 and -60 in the LU12-range, and plenty of -20s sprinkled in sequences of -01.
    Did refurbished/repaired consoles get a new serial, or take up serials of recalled or exchanged boards?

    AFAIK for PAL the "non-white Wii = 40+"-rule also applies.
    For white Wiis, the attached image might be helping.

    As far as I can tell, they would have no reason to change the numbers, and I doubt they reused numbers from returned consoles, they had plenty of numbers, their total sales only used around 10% or so of the possible numbers, assuming the letters couldn't change (which they did)... Since we don't know the method they used to make the numbers, we can only look for potential patterns

    I did it guys. Its been a long night, but I'm all caught up. Every serial number in the thread is now in in the spreadsheet, including the massive contribution from the madlad @cheese. We are at well over 400 NTSC contributions, and almost 50 non-NTSC boards. Thank you all for the contributions so far, every bit of data helps. Keep posting them, and Ill add them to the spreadsheet... eventually

    We need the serial number from the sticker on the case as well.
