lol sucks for you.
Seriously though, the XBox is a POS in terms of hardware design. I know a guy at Best Buy that says at least 20% are returned because of mechanical issues.
The game selection and online play is its best features.
I almost grabbed the PS3 80gig but still not enough games and no worthwhile Bluray movies out today. I'll get it pretty soon I imagine.

I got the red ring of death back in November 06- i had only owned mine for about 5 months. Luckily, I had purchased mine at Costco. I returned it for a full refund no questions asked and purchased a new one from them for about $20 cheaper than I had paid for the first one. The new one is starting to lock up on me lately- it may be time to return this one and see about getting #3.

Well I bought mine used at GameStop and I purchased their 1 year warranty so guess where I am going today. I know this type of thing is covered by Microsoft and is still under warranty with them as well.
Funny thing is when I bought this Xbox, I got it used since someone returned it without even opening the package...so for me it was really brand new in box

As far as technology goes, there is no doubt the PS3 is way above the other two systems. It is well worth the price tag, especially when more games start coming out.
Fisch, there are some great titles on Blu-ray at the moment.

It's a shame, the new NHL games look pretty promising. There's no way in hell I'm dishing out any cash for a 360 until there's a significant fix in the hardware... and they've phased out the original xbox so quickly it looks like I'll be spending time updating rosters on NHL 2K6 instead of getting a new game this year

hey do you need the receipt to return it because i got mine as a gift and the person that got it for me lost the receipt.

Call Microsoft at 1-800-4MY-XBOX they'll ask for info and the serial number. I've heard they don't even require a receipt the problem is so bad, the info they need will be from the serial number but don't hold me to that. (this is for red-ring of death issues)
Remove the harddrive if you want to save your data.
