Default Failure Rate any better now??

curious if anyone knows? my has been sent back 3 times, and now its freezing, my hard drive keeps deleting games on its own, games wont save, the power takes a long time to boot up and shut down, etc. etc. I was thinking of getting another 360, but are they making them any better now?

Im on my 5th 360. 2nd pro. Last one to give me the 3 rings of death was about 6 weeks ago. Overall 5 of them in 2 years all red rings of death.

I have sent two back. The first time they sent me a completely different console the second time the sent me the same one back but it definitely runs a lot cooler then it used to. They must have done something to it.

That's crazy. I still have my launch 360 and bought an elite whenever the HDMI became available, and have never had a single problem. Guess I've been real lucky.

i bought mine oct 07 and had it sent back after about 8 months. so far so good on the second one. if the failure rate isnt changing the customer service is. ive heard of it taking over a month for people to get their console back from xbox but mine took just under 3 weeks.

Just bought a Arcade with the Jasper (Chip?, Drive?) Anyway, it is quieter and cooler. Also, now you can save games to the hard drive and play them from there. MUCH quieter and cooler, even for my old consoles (I have two Pros and a Arcade of the older version)

Short answer: Yes, they are better now.


I have only had RODD on one console that I bought three months after launch. No problems since, except the noise. Now even the noise is better!
