Xbox 360 elite

9 posts in this topic

I am thinking of buying a used one just because I want to upgrade my maddden capabilities from my ps2. What do you have to say about the system? Anybody have any red ring stories? IF so how much did it cost out of factory warranty to get the unit fixed?

Bought my Elite the day they hit the shelves, I have never had a problem with this one or the 2-Pro Systems that we bought on their launch date. The only reason I bought an elite was for the bigger (120gb) Hard-drive and HDMI.I sold one of the original launch sysetems to a friend and he is still using it problem free.

I’ve said multiple times that I haven’t had any issues with my 360.

Well, low and behold I was watching a fishing DVD the other night and it took a dump on me. Yep, three red lights frown

Called the Xbox hotline and it is currently getting fixed under warranty, with no cost to me.

I'm on my second XBOX. The first one i got the red lights after a est. 3000 hours of HARD use. I did buy a Elite ( 30min after i got the lights on my first xbox) and it has done me well. Thay are good with service.

Sounds like at least one person actually uses their XBOX more than they are on fishingminnesota. I don't have one, but I don't think I could log that many hours on a video game system.

It would be fun to try though!! The wife is amazed how quick i go though a season on madden, I would hate to tell her how much I used to play wink We had a nice tiff over lunch about the purchase of another system, I told her maybe I will start goin to the bar every night!! Anybody have any ammo that will help get me over the hill with her?

ive had my elite for 6 mos. problem free so far, but i just screwed myself by typing that. if it does hit the fan, do you need your original receipt to get the warranty or what is the process for that. one more thing. are they all under 3 yr. warranties now or just 1. i heard they changed it to 3 a while back.

Believe it or not, I'm on my fourth 360. The first 2 had the red lights, the 3rd all of a sudden wouldn't read any of my discs. It was under warranty though so I sent it in and they sent me a new one for free. The fourth one still runs, but it takes a while to read discs and once in a while the unplayable disc message comes up. No worries though, I just take the game out and try it again and it usually reads.

I don't know why I have all this bad luck. I take good care of my 360(s), I never abuse them or leave discs in while not in use. Just my luck I guess!
