    So the Xbox 360 hardware is a very, very bad hardware, with the console failure of this video game is 54.2 percent. Why?

    So that proves that the Xbox 360 is less reliable for video gaming. PlayStation 3 (with the console failure rate of 10.6 percent) and the Wii (with the console failure rate of 6.8 percent) is more reliable (though the Wii is very much reliable than PlayStation3). So I created the poll that if you have Xbox 360, you may experience hardware problems mentioned the quote above, including the Red Ring of Death.

    Xbox 360 is the most video game console that has the very bad hardware and the most often repaired video game console. So please vote and discuss this topic! Enjoy! [​IMG]

    Have you experience the Red Ring of Death of Xbox 360?
    Yes

    Have you got other hardware problems of Xbox 360 (excluding the Red Ring of Death)?
    Yes
    no video output, GPU most likely the problem

    Have you sent the Xbox 360 to Microsoft for repairs?
    I just fix it myself
    did the x-clamp fix and everything was fixed (the no video error, the Rrod was already fixed before by putting new thermal paste on the GPU and CPU)

    ive never had any problems
    but i was on futureshop.ca and i was reading review on some models of the xbox 360 like the red one and it said it had problems and it didnt last, it died out really quickly

    i would get either the original one or the black one

    I had graphical corruption leading to a single red light.
    Sent it off to M$ - 2 weeks later good as new (although still running very hot [​IMG] ).

    I got the red rings- but I brought it back to Game Stop and they swapped it for a new one.

    Also the video output seems to have gone on my friends 360- We haven't fixed it yet- is there an easy-ish way to do so?

    You must own a launch 360, mine overheated and nearly caught fire.

    Before I did the x-clamp fix, I would get some red rings while playing rockband for an hour.

    I must be lucky- but then again my Xbox is fairly new...
