    My controller are taking upwards of 10-20 seconds to link to my 360, and sometimes it only takes 5 seconds..anyone has the same problem? this is normal?

    Might be that you have to much interference from other 2.4 Ghz RF devices.

    Sounds like an faulty RF board.

    You could send in your 360 to have it repaired but if it still works it's not worth it.

    Strange..
    Well at least it's not broken so you should be fine.

    My controller syncs within 5 seconds (running console) and connects before the dash is loaded (cold booting)

    That sounds like a interference issue, or something similiar. If the xbox is very far see if you can place it closer, higher, away from other electronics (unplugging dvd players and other nearby devices along with wireless devices) to see if they are causing the issue. If you have only gotten it a week ago see if you can have it exchanged at the place you bought it from if its not too late.
