    Thats right...

    bought #1 opening day
    #1 has sound problem
    called Nintendo and they mailed out a new console
    sent #1 back
    #2 does not load disks... whatsoever. Grinding noise and it won't grip the CD
    called Nintendo and they mailed out a new console
    Nintendo is appalled by my luck
    sent #2 back
    #3 has the dreaded "could not connect to WiiConnect24" error - this is a known hardware issue
    Nintendo really appalled by my luck

    Nintendo is sending me out a REPAIR sticker this time, because this is a repair issue. They are using priority overnight.

    I have hardly gotten a chance to play the thing. I am so disappointed.

    #3 sounds more like user error to me; you probably didn't get your setting correctly.

    try again

    remember... this is my third. I have done all this three times now ;)

    the 5 digit code associated with my error is the infamous hardware problem that is going around. hence why they are repairing it instead of sending a new one. Its a bad hardware piece. I cannot use the SD slot correctly either, which the guy confirmed on the phone.

    I posted it a while back in a thread....

    but after a while of playing the sound would go full static, then do all sorts of weird stuff. I hooked it into many different devices to test. Same thing each time. After a while it would work again.

    I gotta agree with csiguy up above, sounds like some user error to me. 3 in a row? If you put that into statistics then we should be hearing about A LOT more problems than we are.

    3 in a row? I just don't buy it... everyone is entitled to an opinion though. Who knows...

    the problems I had have all been documented by Nintendo. They have all been KNOWN issues.

    That is the definition of bad luck
    ...... not going with statistics. That is why you call it good luck or 'lucky' to win the lottery or even a scratch off.... because according to statistics your chances of winning suck and are not probable.

    It sounds like there's a 360 in your house. The Wii is contracting the same symptoms. That or you just got yours from a bad batch.
