    It really isn't that rare with the older consoles, but these newer ones have had less problems then say mine which is almost a year old now. I would have to say you have less of a chance of getting the RROD now then people with older consoles.

    I would say that the chance of a new console having the RROD problem is pretty low. Also my previous console, which was a year or two old, never faced the RROD problem. The only reason that I shipped mine in was because it had a broken video port which was due to forcing in the cables too much I believe. However, other than that it had no problems whatsoever.

    nah, id say its still pretty high, maybe but all the stuff about 1 and 3/4 consoles get it is all over. out of my friends list about 5 or 6 have gotten the red rings that i know of (i have 100 friends on it) there are probably more that have gotten it but they really dont mind since they know microsoft pays for everything and they each have a 3 year warranty. its more of a: woop i got the red rings i wont be on for a couple of weeks! than it is: omg red rings dooooooom! dooooooooooooooooooooooom!
    all in all its better now and even if you do get it within the first 3 years of owning your console know that microsoft has you covered.

    If you use a windows, the red ring of death shouldn't be too new to you. You must have at some stage had the blue screen of death pop up. Microsoft products working as they do... (in other words: not working for you slow ones)

    If it's a fact then can you please explain to me as to why my console was over a year old and never suffered from the RROD?

    i wouldn't say 'a few' of them have this problem, wasn't it like 33%?

    i might buy in way later, but probably not since ssbb will keep me busy, depends on my financial situation

    I've had mine since November 2006... no RROD at all. It's not every console (as stated already), only some. The chances of you getting the RROD are pretty low, if you purchase one now. Most consoles to have suffered from the RROD pretty easily are mainly the 360 Launch consoles.

    The RRoD had a 30% occurrence with the older models. It's been very low since the newer models came out (Q4 2006 i think). But the chances of you getting it, is pretty non-existant.. but even if you do, your 360's warranty has you covered for 3 years i believe.
