* We only took responses from registered users and we did not receive an abnormal number of new registrations during the duration of this survey. Also, in an attempt to keep people honest, CAGs were told their individual responses would be made public.
* We had a large sample size. With over 3500 responses, even if there were hundreds of attempts to skew the results, the percentages would not change very much. It's also fairly safe to assume that skewing could occur in both directions, canceling each other out.
That was covered. RTFA.

if you buy a 360 and it rrod's on you. You don't go out and buy a new 360. # years warranty is a lot better than what sony has

I work for ups. We take in around 10-25 xboxs a week at our central location. In one town. (I know this because they all get sent back in the same white prepaid box)

I think that says a lot.

Sony has a standard industry warranty for a standard industry defect rate. Companies like Sony and MS only give such a generous warranty when it is needed to steer clear of lawsuits. The PS2 and the 360 are a perfect example of it.

I'm on my 4th 360, and I haven't paid for shipping or a replacement yet. My 360 is still my favorite of the 3 consoles regardless of how many times M$ has had to replace it.

I think the main problem is MS is probably replacing them with fixed consoles that have already been sent in.

I would like to see some actual stats on the Falcon RRODs, because I'll bet they are in the range of 1-2%.

Also this poll is completely useless, since there are only three types of people who will actually vote:

1. The 30% or whatever the real number is of people with RROD'd 360s.
2. PS3 fanboys voting multiple times just because.
3. Xbox 360 fanboys who are part of the majority of 360 users that haven't had problems, who feel enough loyalty to vote.

Everyone else who is completely happy with their 360s either won't bother to vote or won't even be looking at things regarding 360 failure rate.

Its like taking a sample of how Americans feel about gun control and only polling Texans..


I've only had my 360 for two months but it hasn't RROD'd(its also a falcon) and my cousin has had his 360 since launch and it still manages to do 8 hour Oblivion sessions, and his dads a carpenter so with the shop in his backyard getting everything dusty and his constantly shedding dog you have to wonder about the conditions these RRODs are failing under...

I resent that gun control remark.

(I do have a .22 and two AirSoft guns in my closet, however...)


On topic: I Hope my friend's new 360 (From Christmas, should be Falcon) doesn't go through this...he's pretty ghetto...he uses a Pentium 3 PC as his wireless adapter for the 360 xD
Laptop...awesome.
