I agree. Besides, Microsoft has done right after the fact by upping the warranty to 3 years. How can anybody complain about that.

When my 360 RROD it was way beyond the original 90 day warranty, and I bet I'm not the only one in that boat.

I personally blame the failures on the stupid lead-free solder that's required by law in so many places. It may be better for the environment, but lead-free solder is inferior to lead solder.

Check out the following to see the 360's ball grid array problem close up: http://www.bunniestudios.com/blog/?p=223
