Never again will I purchase an xbox. - Page 2

post #11 of 53
I had one single RROD and Microsoft fixed it within two weeks, and as a "thank you for your patience" they gave me one free month of Xbox Live.

For me I could not complain.

OP: Correct me if Im wrong here but don't you have 3 years of warranty? If so just call them and they will fix it for you.

Way harder than just complaining about it guiltysmiley.gif

I've got three XBox 360, but only one of them has ever had a problem. As stated by others above, it was replaced quickly and without hassle in short order. In both cases you describe above, your hardware could have been replaced at no cost to you.

I've started to buy an xbox 2 or 3 times. Mostly just to play some games with my brother. His PC can't run some of the newer games we both play and so far I haven't been able to talk him into upgrading. But after watching him go through 3 different ones in a short period of time I just can't do it. Yes I know..warranty. I just don't want to chance putting myself through the headache. I'd rather just talk him into an upgrade ( I think I'm getting close) so we can play together on the PC. plus I don't really have the extra $$ to buy xbox copies of games I already have on the PC.

Yes i agree with you, & although Microsoft will fix it, it's just a big inconvenience, & untill they get it together, i will never buy one just for the odd game that you can't play on PC, + i have tryed to fix a couple of older one's for friends (RROD) but only get temporary results & only been able to fix a drive not reading.

Maybe the OP's version isn't flawed by design, but you have to admit that the earlier versions were indeed very flawed by design. The RROD on the old versions of the Xbox 360 can be fixed by replacing thermal paste and using better mounting hardware to screw the heatsink down more securely. I'd call that a design flaw.

I rather get something that doesn't have a high risk of failing and having to be sent to get fixed, free or not, myself. Just another good reason to save some money and stick to what you already have to game with (hopefully functioning device).

Fool me once shame on you, fool me twice shame on me.
This is the last time I'll ever own a xbox.
Thank god for PCs.
Sorry for the rant but I feel like Microsoft just sold me a box with a brick in it.

All Microsoft do is sale awful products look at windows.... You should know better go get a PS4 when they come out next year biggrin.gif They have been around a lot longer than that rubbish.

I still have an Xbox360 with a 2005 manufacture date.

Had to replace the DVD drive last year, but this thing has seen some SERIOUS use.
