Chandra observations of early-type galaxies have resolved large populations of low-mass X-ray binaries (LMXBs) in early-type galaxies. The majority of these observations have been snapshots on the order of a day or less. In our own Galaxy, LMXBs are known to exhibit a range of luminosity and spectral variability. Multi-epoch observations of early-type galaxies are just beginning to explore the regime of variability on timescales of days to years. We present results for NGC 4365 and NGC 4697, and compare them to the Milky Way.
