Wouldn't it be faster to count how many people HAVEN'T had one die?  I think I may be the only one... ='D

What, it broke in three months?  =(

Mine's what I guess is a second-generation system, having gotten it the March after the 360's launch date, and it's survived ridiculous gaming sessions of Oblivion, Mass Effect, Tales of Vesperia, and most recently Fable II...Hell, the fact that it survived my 100+ hours of Oblivion was surprising in its own right...

That's what I find funny. The first 360 I owned survive massive Dead Rising and Halo 3 sessions, but died an hour after Call of Duty 4 was inserted.

For the record, I got my 360 in less than two weeks along with a free one month Live account. Its been working smoothly, but I am very careful with it. Right now I have nothing to play on it so its resting till the next game arrives.

Oops I meant Novemember of 07, so yeah it lasted a more than a year but that is still unacceptable.  I have a PC, TV, Gameboy, etc that all have lasted well over 10 years and are still currently working.

Mine didn't die, but I had to send it in because it was having trouble reading discs.

Well I'm on a original Xbox 360 (got it on launch) and haven't sent it once--knock on wood. 

Think I would get anything on Ebay for the 360 that survived?

Impressive.  I did have an early 360 but I sold it on eBay and then bought an Elite. <wipes brow>

My 360 which I got in May is still humming along just fine, though it's only gotten used during breaks (I left it at home while I went to school all last semester) and I use it lightly all the other times anyway. Keeping the damn thing ventilated is a pain though; have they not done any work on the cooling system in the last 3 years?

The new Jasper ones are supposedly good.  The drives are quieter, although I can't speak on the fans.

Key advice:

- Keep your Wii at an elevated location to avoid sucking up the heavier dust that settles towards the floor.

- Set the Wii lying flat instead of on the stand.  The stand doesn't provide a decent amount of freedom for air intake.

- Disable standby (orange light) mode.  If you're going to leave the Wii running to receive WFC crap, you might as well leave it on so that the fan continues to cool the system.  Standby mode consumes almost as much electro juice as the system powered on anyway.

Well the new 360 update that fixes HDMI issues supposedly causes an RROD on some consoles, I wonder how my console will be effected because my 360 has no HDMI port.

Weird. I never had any sound issues. Must of been a problem with people connecting it through their x.1 sound system.

I dunno, I've never had the system feel warm when I left it on standby (which I've sometimes done for weeks at a time), but leaving it on and active for 18 hours straight makes it pretty toasty, which I always thought was a bad thing. Not sure which mode it was that fried my GCN memory card tho...

Standby mode fried your card.  Try another GCN card and check again.
