My xbox got the ROD for the 4th time...THE FOURTH FREAKING TIME!!!!!

I AM SO SICK OF THIS! ARG!!!!!!

I mean I know that they have a rediculous fail rate, but in the 3 or 4 years i've had an xbox, it has broken 5 times....I had my first one which lasted about 6 months, my 2nd one lasted about 2 years, and then i got the E74 error, got that fixed, then it got the ROD, i sent it in, and it got the ROD AGAIN!!!!! I've had it for a week!!!!


Eh....so what's everyone's opinions on this?

In the 3 or 4 years I had my xbox, it never broke or had any problems.

I got one on the first day, it died just out of the normal warranty, then the extended warranty was announced, I got it fixed immediately. no problems since.

maybe it's the way you store your console

TS, I suggest you move your xbox in place with more air and ventilation. One of the main reasons why xbox die of overheat is because people put them in little spaces like "Just beside the DVD player, under the tv".

I've also had a PS3 since release day, and it never had any problems.

Maybe I take too much care of my possessions

Exactly the same with me.

I just got that E74 error on Sunday. I have forgotten the email address i used so can't log into my account online. How do i go about sending it away to get fixed? I just got Fifa 10 the day before it too

They have the same system is microsoft in that if it's in warranty period they will replace your console for free. After warranty it's $150 for replacement.

The difference is that the warranty for PS3 hasn't been extended to 3 years like the Xbox has.

I know, it's just my standard response to "olol RROD get a PS3"

I know I messed up when I got my RROD, it was left on a carpeted floor underneath the DVD and video stand.

ever since then it's been in a well ventilated area and there have been no problems.

Why don't you stop bitching, get it fixed and give it to a kid who can't afford to buy ONE?



I only bought ONE. Microsoft fixes them for free. Why don't you stop being a DICK?
#23
Just demand a new one, or if not possible just a cheap new one. If I recall correctly, they fixed the RROD problem with the latest editions?
