Default Another one bites the dust. How many Xbox 360s have you gone through?

Well, my fifth Xbox 360 just died this morning and I thought it might be fun to see how many 360s others have been through.

So... how many have you had die? Has anyone been lucky enough to have no problems?

My first lasted 3 years. On my third now. So I got 2 to break. 1 was RROD, the other was no longer reading discs.

No issues with mine. Its a launch console. Last year I wanted it to die but now the warranty is no good.

Dude, that's a collectors item. An antique!

You must really love the 360 to have bought one 5 going on 6 times. I gave up after my second one died. I jumped ship and got a PS3.

I personally still need it. I don't want to miss exclusives that console gets.

My first is still working great. It's a Zephyer model with the updated heat sync, which is I think the first revision of the HDMI board. I bought it the day after Bioshock was released and so far no errors as of yet. The DVD drive is a little loud, but only about as loud as when my PC is burning a CD or DVD. It's certainly not as loud as my PC when I'm installing something from a disc.

I had extended warranties on two of them and then had two repaired for free... this is the fifth one to die. I haven't actually bought that many... I have bought three different Xbox 360s... maybe four. I can't recall exactly.

I have had three red rings, one dead DVD drive and now an E73 error.

It is frustrating, but I still like the Xbox 360, I just wish the hardware was better... a lot better.
