The EU has some very strict warraty policies I have read so they may be sending you a new one. I would hold on to the hd though.
I kept my HD and they did not send me a new one. When I got the refurb I just plugged the old HD in and went on with my business. I don't remember having any trouble. The refurn seemed to be in good condition. It's still working well and I havn't had any problems with it. Visually there were no scratches or dents or anything. There may have been a smudge or two on the case but I just wiped them off.

So let me get this straight...5 of you out of this thread alone had your 360 die? Ok, subtract me from the list of people who were going to get a 360. The games coming look damn tempting but the hell with that mess. 360 needs a massive recall or maybe this was all apart of the plan so you all can keep sending in your system for repairs so Microsoft can recoup some of the cost they lose on each system. PS3 doesn't look that expenisve at all anymore especialy if you sell your 360 and use that $200 towards a PS3.(pirate)

Of course you will get replies from people who have had problems on a thread about issues, but myself and a few friends had never had a single problem and some of them have launch consoles.

I can admit that it makes me nervous so I got the $30 one year extended warranty.

Out of the group of about 15 people I play games with on Xbox Live 3 needed to send their 360s in for repair (me included) and 1 of the three had to send the replacement back because it died as well. Sure a good hand full of gamers have had problems with their 360s but if the failure rate was as massive as you say then the media would have been all over it like savages. Most new electronic devices have issues when first introduced. Once the growing pains fade you'll see a lot less of these types of threads.

ENU291 is correct. I will bet there will be a load of ps3's that will go bad.

I'm glad my 360 broke, the replacement I got had a new DVD drive that wasn't as loud as the original Hitachi one. Plus MS do an extremely good job in replacing it, I got my new one in no time.

I would not be surprised if the ps3 failure rate was much greater then the 360. That being said, I still want one.

I dont think the media really sees consoles as big deal. I think the failure rate is massive but its not like MS is going to admit it. Yes, this is the shout on the internet and blog so everyone can hear you era but I dont think a console has ever died at the rate the 360 seems to be dying and me and my brother have had them all. 1 or 2 is passable but when you got 8 guys on the same message board with dead systems that to me should be a signal not all is right. Go to any board with a console section and everyweek you will see a couple threads on my "treesixty is dead".

You all are making this pass as if it nothing but I think you all should be outraged. What if it was new Nvida or ATI cards dying like this? You all would avoid them like the plague. Though I doubt they will admit it I think it will be official that the 360 system wise is rushed mess when oldskool, evilchis and Zelda's goldplated, oblivious to all elements 360 drops dead.

Mine looks smug all the time, but other than that no problems and it's getting a fair workout now my gf moved in and found the popcap games

No probs with the old xbox either, it's on almost 24/7, is modded and runs xbmc with the fans on low speed.

Remember the broken WMVHD decoder on the 6800 series?
