    my boss just got it like 2 weeks ago.. sent his out last week at some point.

    I know when i had to send mine in for service, the box was there within 2 days.. saw it in a little over a week after shipping out

    I got it about 2 weeks after I bought it from gamestop, they had one box left and it was all damaged but they assured me it was fine. I brought it back to them and said "fuck you gimme a new one" and they did. I hear it takes 2-4 weeks when sent to Microsoft though.

    yup my warranty was up. its a manufacters defect they have to replace it or theyd have a lawsuit on their hands. You cant sell a product if you know it WILL break and not offer to fix it when it happens.

    mine is an older 360, bought dec 06...i stuck one of those uber-cooling fans on the back and it's worked great.

    now that i say that, i'm going to turn it on to rock out tonight and it's gonna fail :hs:

    When I returned it, I got one of the newer ones they released right after the price drop, so I think I'm set. Knock on corrugated wood.

    Yep. I just got mine like 5 minutes ago. anyone dealt with sending a refurbished one in to Microsoft? I got in on that buy.com deal the main forum was going nuts about last month.

    so literally less than a month of very moderate gaming and death.
