Most of them didn't have to pay anything to replace their dead unit for new unit if they have sort of replacement plan with retailers or Microsoft took care of them. So they don't really lose anything.

Also people may have many friends they play with in Xbox Live so it's other reason why they keep getting new units even if it might RROD on them. Yeah it's a lot of work involved but you'd do the same with TV, car parts, PC parts, etc. as long it doesn't cost you anything but time. It's no different.
