    Seriously, four xbox consoles within 1.4 months.. wtf. I started with new, crapped out, and went through 3 more refurb or used ones afterwards. I can recall my first xbox 360 I bought brand new in 2005 (IN IRAQ) not having any issues and we played the hell out of it with the heat and sand. I just got this one three days ago, I haven't played more than 4minutes on it and already the drive isn't reading discs....

    How come my first xbox works so well... any my WII... My NDS... My PSP and hell even my PS3. Microsoft you suck and I hope a fat turd of a monkey lays a large mass of monkey feces on your doorstep.

    EAT SH!T M$. Thanks for listening.

    Btw Darksiders is a great game.

    I've never bought an xbox or xbox360 and I'm glad....microsoft can't build sh!t, they just care about money and not quality, vista was enough proof of that. I'll never purchase a microsoft gaming console or operating system as long as I live! Go to hell MicroSh!t!

    You have all the right to be upset over this, but chances are high this is just going to turn into a giant flame war. For now I'll leave this open but don't make me regret it.

    I agree that the XBox is poorly built, but you can't say all Microsoft products are bad. I mean, even if you asked the hardiest of Mac users, they would admit that Windows has changed the world that we live in today. If I give you any advice, don't bother with another XBox, stick with the PS3.

    some people really do have bad luck.

    i've had my xbox for more than a year and the only time it's ever got anything close to a RRoD is when the power cord was pulled out when it was on.

    and it's on carpet between the tv cabinet and sub woofer, so it doesn't have much room to breath anyway.

    IMO i think the 360 is the best system out right now i mean it has so many great games out for it and alot of cool apps online. Dont get me wrong the 360 does have the highest failure rate but thats cause it was rushed right? Btw u use windows 7 and its great! lol

    they always do. I was just really upset, I'm trying to save to buy my gf a ring and this sh!t doesn't help. I had to buy a new DVD drive off of Ebay and I'll be trading out the motherboards and hopefully that is the issue.

    I have had such bad luck with these xbox 360s, I bought one in Iraq in 2005 and never had an issue, then I traded it for a PS3 in 2007. I wanted to play Gears of War 2, so i bought one in August and haven't had more than 2wks worth of play on each one i bought.

    Not a flame war, because M$ makes great products, hardware and software. I love Windows Mobile 6.5 on my phone and Windows Vista/Xp/Dos.

    Just these damn new 306s lol.

    I think he mentioned they were used or refurbs, so that's probably the problem there. [​IMG]
    Bad luck all the same. I've had some bad luck with my Wii and DS. The Wii's dvd drive started to fail. Thankfully both were repaired free.
    Luckily my xbox 360 is still going strong after a year.

    Build quality decreased harshly in this generation... and the fault is entirely ours, because we accept the failure rates the companies are throwing at us. While I HATE the Playstation, I do have to admit that Sony is pretty much the only one that somewhat takes build quality seriously. Microsoft and Nintendo only care about profits now.

    It is the old Xbox 360 that have the RROD problem. The newer one, the Jasper suppose to fix the RROD problem. Maybe you were unlucky. I'm on my third Xbox 360. My first one, I got in 2005, RROD on me in 8 month. The second one in 1 year. I didn't even send it in to get another refurb because I knew that it will RROD too. I just got a new Jasper from Walmart. Hopefully this one will last.

    You don't have warranty with used consoles unless you buy it


    Edit: I hope my Xbox doesn't fuck up, though its newly bought so I have warranty [​IMG]

    and why didn't you just play the 'I send it in until it works fine' game? at least this is what I do with shitty products + a lot of complaining

    If you buy a refurb unit you should be aware of the pre-falcon/jasper generations of xbox 360 consoles...it's not good, that they were that faulty, but at least they fixed it in newer revisions

    360 is the ZX81 of our time.

    My original Xbox though is still going strong, never had any problems unlike the PS2 which I've had so many of, shit I returned one to the shop and got a broken one in return lolz . [​IMG]

    I've had my original 360 since early 2006 and it still runs fine. As a matter of fact, I had to swap out the DVD drive in my RE 360 recently but the old Samsung is still running strong [​IMG]
