It finally happened to me, switched the Xbox on this afternoon and was greeted with the 3 red flashing lights. Had no warning, no signs of anythign wrong before it happened. Anyway have filled out the form on xbox.com and am now waiting for an email with the postage information and ticket number. I have a few questions...

1. Do they pay for postage?
2. If you have had to do it recently in the last few months, how long did it take to get an Xbox back in your hands? Anyway, it gives me an excuse to get playing some of the games I have stocked up on the PS3.

Extremely annoying as the game I have been waiting all year for, Left 4 Dead 2, should be arriving tomorrow!.

Just read that 60% of 360 users surveyed (in the uk) had, had the RROD problem.

Can't believe it is that high! But, in fairness to Microsoft, I have not heard of ANY problems in getting the problem fixed.

I had my xbox for 2.5 years, and they still replaced it FOC.

60% is that all?

I've had RROD 5 times now, so that's 500%

I don't know any friends that have an xbox that have has had less than 3.

I sent my Microsoft Wheel back to Germany a fortnight ago, and it was back in about 8 days.

I find it laughable how Xbox users keep a spare console for when theirs red rings.

Its strange but how do they know the survey is either legit or unbiased etc.

I had a console bought in November 2006, I sold it in November 2008, never RROD, when I was in halls 2 years ago loads of lads had 360's and only one who had console since launch got RROD and he was a heavy user and I have friends at uni now and none have had RROD.

As I said, when you do have the problem, they are quite good (and quick) about fixing it. So there is no real need for a spare.

I read about the survey on the HUKD blog. I now don't know anyone who has an xbox and has not had the RROD. So I am not sure where the other 40% are hiding! Perhaps they have only had their consoles a matter of days!
#13
The other 40% must be at ryouga's uni! lol

I think it is just a matter of luck. As I said I was a heavy user on my first one which lasted ages

No, I know many people who use their xbox a lot and only one who's had an xbox from release has got RROD. I wonder where they get these 60% statistics from. We did a survey *ahem* outside an xbox repair centre and 90% of users confirm RROD. Don't buy an xbox !!

Got one banned last week, replaced it with my spare box, unmodded.
After two days it started giving graphic issues when I turned it on, within 5 mins of that happening it was RRoD, what a reliable console the 360 is :p
