Had my Xbox just under 2 years now and got the E74 message last night, have followed the proceedure and will now send it away next week for repair. A guy in work got his Xbox 6 months after me and has now had the red ring of death for the 3rd time and has just sent his away for repair again. Going by what ive been reading, it seems that you very rarely get more than 36 months out of an Xbox before it breaks down.
Would i be better to just cut my losses and get a PS3?, considering that when the Xbox comes back, it could well be going back for another repair within 6 months again?
Anyone else had a lot of bother with the Xbox?
