Ok so I baught my Xbox 360 last February.  The 5 month warranty ran out less then two months ago.  Today I go to fire it up and play some Dead Rising to a black screen and my system blinking three red 1/4 circles.  So I call 1800-4-MYXBOX and they give me three things to try.  I try all three and still doesnt work.  Then I talk to a rep and apparently I've taken the best of care of my 360 and done everything properly.  According to him, theres no real reason it should have broke...it just happened.  So now I'm spending $140 to get the darn thing fixed.  Oh and the best part is, it could be any one of the components inside...they really don't know what it could be.  My problem is, this is manufacturer error, so why am I paying for it?  My PS2 broke over a year after I got it and I sent it to sony and they fixed it AND CLEANED it for free AND paid for shipping.  Microsoft needs to start standing behind there products, esspecially if there going to launch a half-***** system....

Hmmm. I can't wait for Halo 3. Hopefully the 360s won't be so crazy sketch.

I fried the HD in my Xbox. It would boot up and make this clicking noise (sounded like the arm in the HD flicking across the platter) and the light around the power button would flash red. It was weird because I was playing Halo 2 on a LAN when it first started making the noise, and the Rocket launcher disappeared from my shoulder and textures started to disappear. Then it froze, and a green and black screen came up saying my Xbox was screwed up and needed to be serviced. I called, and the fee was about what a Refurb Xbox would cost.

So, I bought a refurb one.

That's my experience with their CS.

You knew what the warranty was when you bought it yet you complain about it? They offered an extended warranty. Should have bought it.
I did.

its not that, its the fact that its obviously a problem with alot of 360's and a obvioius and severe manufacturar defect which should be fixed no matter what.

Thats what happens when they try to push a product out as fast as possible to get the "edge" on the competition even though many of the other companies decided to wait and create new things and fix defects. The PS3 is getting looked at because they are finding problems with the blue ray. Thats why the people that wait a year or so for the company to fix defects, ae the smart ones. Those people might even save some money if the price drops.
