    Yeah, this is a relief for when I get mine not worrying for 3 years After 3 years if you do get the ring of death you'll still have your moneys worth..

    little more peace of mind when i purchase another hopefully
    before christmas.

    shame that after all of the moaning and groaning that it took
    so long to accept that there was a fundamental flaw
    with the console.
    not really
    they already extended the warranty to 1 year sometime in decemember and theyve done multiple revisions of the 360.

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    ooh, M$ offer a 12 month warranty...so what?

    every electrical device you buy should come with at least a 12 month
    manufacturers warranty as standard. most mobile phones (SE / Nokia) offer
    24 months MFG warranty out of the box.

    the fact that M$ were only offering 9 months initially is pretty poor especially
    considering the price of the 360. if it only cost £50 then i wouldn't be too bothered,
    but the fact is, the 360 costs between £180 - £280 and 9 months warranty for
    that price is taking the piss.

    still, at least all those who decided not to take theirs apart to fix the 3RLOD
    will benefit.

    unfortunately, it doesn't discriminate.

    i know people who are still running their original launch machines without
    problems. i also know people who's launch machines have failed. likewise
    the "newer" 2006 consoles.

    for more information, head over to http://forums.xbox-scene.com/index.php
    there's comprehensive information relating to all things xbox / xbox 360

    sadly this doesnt fix the problem at all. Its still a big hassle shipping your system back, waiting weeks, and then getting back the system you do not know will be intact.

    Its like letting someone borrow your system and you dont know when you will get it back, but either way you still have to drop it off at their house and cant play it till they give it back to you.

    But i do have to say, at least microsoft announced there was a problem finally, but then again, they didnt have a choice. It was becoming too big of a problem to ignore.

    initially, the turn around was pretty quick...you sent it off, then soon enough
    a 360 was delivered back to you. unfortunately, nine times out of ten
    it wasn't your purchased 360.

    iirc, M$ have put something in place to ensure that you get your "own"
    console back in the event that you have to return it for repairs.

    i totally concur with your last paragraph shiftfallout. even the most biased
    of M$ owners would have to admit that it is a huge problem.

    it will now be interesting to see how quickly M$ implement the proposed
    60nm chipset which is reported to help keep the console cooler.
