Found 8th Jan 2010
I've got the red rings of death on my xbox its out of warranty.
I know there is a few different types of 360's to buy, which one could I get and put my own HD on it?

Also how much would I get for my xbox?
How much would a new xbox be?
Thanks rep will be left

how long have you had that xbox for.

you may get £20 or £30 on fleabay looked at some today.....

I would get a new elite, although if your keeping the hard drive you could just get a cheaper model

New xbox around £150 console only i would think.

Have you tried contacting microsoft, i went through 6 360's some out of warranty and they replaced them free, just ring and moan it usually works

All X boxes accept hard drives.

Just buy an arcade console for about £100 - £120

Thanks for the quick replies
Had it over 3 year now I think.

Worth buying an arcade one from fleebay or do you think I'd more than likely be buying someone elses problems?

Theres a shop in town that has a sign saying they can fix rrod, might give them a try and if not I will just get an arcade one. Rep left for everyone, thanks.

Last a few months tops and you can do it yourself, it is not hard.

It will say on the Xbox the date of it...check it out cos you may get a new one for nowt!

It's worth contacting MS even if you think it is out of warranty.

I was sure I had had mine for longer than 3 yrs as the production date seemed to suggest that but MS said I still had over six months left.
