    This is the second time my Xbox has Red Ringed.

    I sent it in again, just waiting for it to return.

    How many times has this happened to you guys?

    Waiting on the fourth. I'm pretty excited about it.

    You trying to one up me?

    Mines about 2 years old. I heard they fixed the problem though right?

    I actually just found out that the PS3 gets the Yellow light of death...never knew that :lol 

    My Xbox has never gotten the RROD but I fear it will soon (when I open the guide to accept an invite it freezes)

    Depends. I don't think any of them are 100% safe.

    I'm a sucker for punishment though.

    When it's bad it's bad but when it's good it's good.

    :dunce

    None, on my Halo edition... (runs far away, if it can feel my presence, just leave this place)

    No problems with my elite so far, though I think the disc tray might be devoloping an issue as it'll get stuck from time to time.

    Once.

    And I'm going to give Microsoft an earful if I get one again.

    My near launch Pro, which is out of warranty, has died twice. It runs pretty hot too so I expect it to permanently die again sometime. It gets used more for DVDs and media streaming, occasionally I'll play a few games on it.

    My Arcade, that is less than a year old, is running fine. It runs pretty cool, rarely even expelling heat that I would consider warm.

    I'm sure that mature response will garner you top notch product support, too.

    Our old one got RROD'ed once, then it immediately stopped working altogether once the warranty ran out. No lie, it pretty much just up and died a week after the warranty was done.

    My XBox has survived a 4 foot drop, and is still running smooth.

    I think I have an elite with a Jasper Mobo...

    I had one on my original console.

    It was seeming like it was getting close to another when GTA4 was out so I traded it in against a PS3 and bought a Elite.
