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!

    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!
