This is a system that wasn't abused, I live in Florida and in a brick house so I have no reason to put the heat on 90 degrees and neither was the system overheated at anytime. If anything this console has had the least abuse of any console I've owned, the least use (it was off for months at a time, most frequent use of it was as a DVD player. Especially when those six games were done with, and good launch titles were few), and yet it still died on me without any reason. Indeed, I'm dubious on purchasing another or a PS3 until these systems are proven to last at LEAST 3 years with just normal wear.
    wii over PS3 I say.

    I've had mine for about ten months. It still runs perfectly except the fans now make grinding noises. But as long as it still works I don't really care what sound it makes. I just hope it lasts until they put new 65nm processors in them so I only have to send one in.

    theres always lag online
    but if your referring to like offline, yah it lags, on games like gears of war (only one i experienced lag on) its just so graphically overloaded, and i had my 360 on for 20+ hours already, it would lag when intense parts happened, but thats because the thing is so identical to a computer in hardware, its only expected

    i bought one a couple months ago, even after the software update all games still kept freezing, wouldnt read discs after i play for a few hours. all this on day 1... went back on day 2 to return it at harvey norman and they said "oh we dont do refunds sorry, u have to call microsoft" (the guy who sold it to me specifically said they do refunds). Then i found out if i gave it to microsoft they could either fix it or give me a refurnished one. WTF i just bought it 24 hours ago. so i brang in the legal papers and got my money back and bought a ps3! oh yeah and i also clocked gears of war on day 1 and online lags like hell (probably because im in australia), very bad experience for me.

    NEVER BUY STUFF FROM HARVEY NORMAN! they're a bunch of lying maggots.
    and dont buy a 360 either, or at least wait for the next 360 they release, zephyer or elite or whatever its called.

    Mine lasted 5 months, from May-Oct 06... the ring of death. This was two months before Microsoft extended their manufacturers warranty. I had a warranty from Circuit City, they sent me a gift card and I bought a Wii.

    I plan to purchase another 360, but I'll wait until a price drop/deal and for the 65nm processor... but I am tempted to get an Elite

    What is the 65nm processor? And what exactly does it do to improve the 360? Will it ever be used or are you just waiting for something that will probably never happen? Just out of curiousity. And I'm SO tempted by the Elite model too..but first I have to save money.

    It will pretty much just make it run cooler so there will be less issues with overheating.

    if it is in the elite model, thats cool, but i dont think it is
    it basically lets you play longer cooler, and stuff be processed faster in game
