I got the same console back. It took like 2 weeks door to door.
When I sent my 360 in, it took about 8 days from the time i dropped it off at UPS. They sent back the same system. I didn't get a refurb, they actually fixed it.
The new system is MUCH better and improved.
If you want one, let me know Im cheaper than retail.
Unrelated to the thread title but I'll just post it here instead of making another thread:
Is there a significant difference between the HDMI cablle and the JD components (red, blue, green)? When I got my Elite, it only came with the basic composite cable (red, yellow, white) but thankfully, my Vizio TV had a free HDMI cable.
