    Wow, that is some bad luck.

    I really do hope all of you guys' xbox 360's stay alive and well. I wish this on know one, And knock on wood you guys didn't jinx yourself.=).This is the third RROD. 1 was a bad disc drive DRE issue. Nonetheless still had to send it in. My PS3 and Wii (Wii fit for my gf) are getting ALOT more playtime. Shitty thing is if i didn't have literally thousands upon thousands of dollars in games and accessories i would just sell it and stick with the PS3 and Wii but i can't.=(

    Don't feel too bad I'm on number 4 right now. Waiting for it to crap out on me. If it wasn't the best console for online gaming, I'm not sure I'd put up with it.

    If you want to keep it from overheating just keep it off carpet and keep part of it elevated a little bit. Keeping it off the ground really keeps it an incredible amount cooler.

    pretty unluck i guess.

    got number 1 at launch. broke down june 08, got number 2 worked ever since.


    my mates well.

    mate 1 - got on launch, broke down January 07, second broke down 2 weeks later, then a month later (he got compensation of 2 free games from Microsoft worth it? up to you to decide) then its worked fine untile last xmas, broke. so he bought himself an elite.


    Mate 2 - january 07, broke down xmas 08, new one lasted fine.


    i know LOADS of people in my local area with 360's and i only know about 2 who havent had RROD but theres arent even that old XMAS

    Im a big technophile. I know how to take care of my stuff. I wonder why all my other consoles are working just fine including the old xbox,dreamcast,fat ps2,wii,ps3,psp,DS.etc. Its the console not me. Like i said though. Im going to buy a jasper arcade as soon as i get mine back and hopefully be done with it. I have had 3 RROD not 4. 1 was a DRE.

    Damn, that's unlucky.

    I'm on my first, had it since August, but it's a 2006 model. (bought it used)
    It's never been sent into M$ as far as I can tell...
