    Now I have to wait for the customary shipping box, 2-3 week wait for repair just like the two times before.

    Man, and I really wanted to play some GTA4 too....

    I hear on the 3rd one you get a golden Xbox as a replacement.

    Nothing and that's the problem! lol

    I got my second RROD about a month ago and I got my "new" one...manufacture date August 2006 within the week. That has to be a record or something.

    Both of mine died within a year and 2 months each...weird.

    Exactly! But yeah, I had my third RROD last Friday and I started a thread about it called "Why don't we have a sticky thread for this?". Trust me, it takes no missuse for this to happen. Microsoft has admitted to this being their fault and to make up for it they allow us to be without our system for a few weeks!

    Some tips I have that may make your Xbox last longer (as mine has yet to RROD after 2 and 1/2 years):

    - Sit the Xbox flat, not standing up. That way all fan ports are clear and breezy.

    - Keep it in a cold, moist free area away from the sun. Mine is in my basement.

    - Try and elevate it off the ground. This way dust and dirt have less chance to be sucked in.

    lol...I didn't even have to turn mine on for it to break.

    There was a power outage and the next time I tried to use the damn thing...I got my rings.

    I never had any electronics break on me just sitting there doing nothing in my life.

    Aren't the newer ones supposed to be RROD-free?

    Because its the best console out there. Just keep it in a well ventilated place and keep the dust off it and you will be fine.

    people seem to think the elite are, and i presume that would filter down to all the newer ones with hdmi. but i doubt the truth of this claim.
