    how many in here have xbox 360 consoles and how many times have u got the red ri

    well me and my son are on are 3rd 360,first one was the core bundle without hard drive.that lasted 8months,if u think taurus cs is bad try micro soft,so i called the toll free# never did speak to anyone i could understand,a real pain in rear.so like a dummy went out and bought the 360 elite this thing was supposed to NOT get the 3 red light,and they wherent lying it only got 1 red light(still not playable with 1 red light)that lasted about a year. so the last one we have is the 360 arcade much lower price now 199.00 had a 40.00$ off coupon for circuit city before they went out of business.so far so good still working. tried the ps3 didnt like it i think the online play and graphics of the 360 are better(plus a load of great games)

    I have never had the Red Ring, But my buddy has and he looked on Craigslist for a repair person. He found one, It was a 13 old boy but he still let him look at it. A week later the kid called him and said the thing was done. So he went to go pick it up and the kid charged him 30 buck ( which from what i here is about average for fixing the the red ring). To this day the 360 works fine and has not had a problem plus the kid put 2500 Nintendo games on the console for free. So the red ring can be fixed easily, its really not that big of a deal anymore like it was when they first cam out.

    My other friend has gone through 3 PS3's all because of the Yellow Light of Death. He hasn't had to pay for them because of Best Buy insurance. So he got lucky on that.

    do you know what he did to it,cause me and my son did the towel trick it really worked but only delayed the end for about 1 month after that we took it apart and looked at the cpu where the thermal grease(thats what i call it)i think its the heat sink stripped it off and applied some new to it,that made it work for another 2 months by the way that was the first 360. it finally took a big dump so we took it to the range and fixed it good lol! will never work again!

    We are on our third Xbox 360. It seems the "red ring of death" is a regular visitor at our house. But it's always been within the warrantee period so they have all been replaced for free. Our current one has lasted over a year and a half with no problems though.

    I have no clue what this kid did to it but its been 9 or 10 months since being fixed and its all good. If something like this happens again go to craigslist in your area and look for a repair person. As said before it was only 30 bucks.

    I've had the 360 since x-mas of 2006 and had to return it 2x because of the red death. This particular x-box i've had for 2+ years
