    Mine's over 6 months old, ran for over 500 hours, including a few movies I watched on it.
    I don't track running time, but I know how many hours I spent on some games I played the most (The save file tells me =P, 4 games give me 300 hours so 500 is really an underestimate, I'm not so hardcore anymore I play less these days)
    I've always set mine up horizontally, no sign of RROD, even freezing is rare.

    It seems taking an average of running time, horizontal/vertical setup is meaningless since RROD suddenly visits and sits there, but I'm just curious.
    I know for a fact that there are launch 360 owners out there who have never experienced RROD. Perhaps reading about long-living 360s would encourage people to stop waiting and get one now.

    I had a 360 for 2 years that got used pretty much every day. Never had a problem with it. I sold it to someone and 30 days later he said it 3rrod on him. Coincidence? I'm not sure. I always took extra care to make sure my 360 was kept cool.

    Is there a timer or something? I don't keep track of my logged hours.

    Nah I just had to sum up times logged on my game save and rough estimates on games that don't have such thing.

    People shouldn't have to make an effort to avoid RROD. If setting up your console in a certain way or playing for a certain time causes a problem, that's a manufacturing defect.

    In front of a computer?
    I had my console since launch and played it pretty much everyday, then it red ringed about a month ago on Easter (estimated 1200hours as I use it for playing media center and dvds as well). Got my new one and the count is probably around 50 hours for it (GTA has helped a bit in the past week).

    I played arround 30 hours on burnout , 15 hours on halo 3 , 30 hours of GTA IV for me and 22 for my brother. hm. Then about 10 hours for Ace Combat 6 and 2 for DMC 4. And maybe add 3 hours for DoaX2. Oh and Halo 1 for about 5 hours. [​IMG]

    Add them up and you know how much time it's running although these values are just what I think I played , I didn't track time while playing.

    Got mine at launch then had it repaired last year around Xmas, not had a single hitch/freeze/anything since getting it back.
    Couldn't possibly guestimate playing time, I have 107 games on disc and 12 XBLA if that's any indication, finished majority of them. I also take it to work 3 or 4 times a week and play it anything from 2-11hrs at a time.
    Also keep it vertical since having it repaired.
