    Ok so my 360 died from the red ring of death, i sent it in for repair and i've been checking up on it on the xbox support site, it arrived there and took a few days to change the status from "Device received at service center" to "Device being shipped to customer", but that is not the only thing that changed. it also has a different serial number now. Does this mean they are sending me a new one or a working repaired 360? I hope its a new one because my 360 was in pristine condition aside the red ring and I would be a little pissed if it came back all messed up lookin. or maybe they change the serial after the 360 is repaired? Has this happened to any of yous? Let me know the deal, thanks:cool:

    its most likely a referb. however i dont understand why people dont like referbs. no matter what company, referbs have always had the lowest return rates because they were personally fixed instead of just mass produced.

    Try buying an external 360 fan to help keep you console cool, this could prevent thing ring appearing again.

    the only thing that was bad about the console that i got back that was a referb was the faceplate. the peg on the sync button was broken off but i had saved my old faceplate from my other xbox so it didnt really matter to me

    I've been wondering if any of the repaired machines are coming back with the updated MB and the new 65nm CPU/heat sink?

    I read on TeamXbox and Xbox.com that the 65nm chip has been soft launched and that some Halo editions apparently have it (all sorts of specifics about Lot #'s, serial ranges, etc.).

    If I were trying to mitigate possible returns, I'd circulate repaired machines back out with the new MB.

    I got a new sexbox from Microsoft.
    I dunno, but it seems to be working fine since then.

    I called them, they said that they replace them because they can't be fixed.
    Well, good luck, and hope I helped.

    Nice. Some companies really step up - I sent the wifey's Oakley Crush watch in for a crystal repair and they sent back a totally new watch - and even when I sent in some sunglasses they sent them back with new grips/nosepieces, extras, everything polished back up, etc.

    Nice to see some decent CS for a change.

    no hdmi port, i thought only the elite had that. it was manufactured on 9-24-2007, thats pretty damn new. it seems to be running quieter and cooler than my old one

    well the new systems that come out now have HDMI. however i guess that doesnt count if you get a new one VIA repair center but if you buy one at the store that was recently made you will get an HDMI port (no cable though)
