one thing i have always wondered , the amount of xbox units sold.. what percentage of that is people buying a new xbox becuase of this.. my brother is on his 3rd xbox , microsoft replaced the 1st one and he had to go buy his new one. so technically , 1 person bought 2 xbox's..
o also one more thing lol , check your machine again.. if its 4 red rings you should be ok , just have to unplug then plug the power supply back in or reset the power supply its on .. happend to me 3rd week of my xbox
No Your Right - i make all this stuff up

Does your wife have a single sister?
Mi 360 "dies" on January and we don't have guarantee here in Argentina so I split it into pieces and sold them.

Get the red ring one fixed and sell it to make up part of the money. I did that with my 360 when the red ring happened. Only thing is I had to buy my own replacement!
Very nice of your wife to do that, electronics failing sucks big time!

Thats really cool of your wife. I think you should have saved your money and waited for Microsoft to fix it but it seems you aren't worried about dropping more coin on a faulty product. This is the main reason I have never bought the 360. I have had so many friends who are on their 3rd one by now. Good luck on this one.
....and knowing is half theYo Joe!

from what i remember reading all teh first few waves of the 360 will get the ring of death after so many hours of use. its going to happen.
problem is not everyone uses there xbox the same amount of time. so odviously one guy who plays it dailey for 10 hrs a day will fry and have to get replaced faster then the guy who may play it an hour a week. thus why even after all these years people with original xbox 360's are just now getting there first ring of death.
my question is did they finaly fix it with the later models. ive been holding off buying one due to me not wanting to deal with this 5 yrs down the road (i wouldnt use it that much due to time restraints).
check out my store for great deals

Awesome wife dude, however you should have got a PS3 to begin with and then you would never have to worry about it magically going shitter up, like they are prone to doing.

I am on my 4th 360. Bought the Resident Evil edition because I was told that the hardware doesn't have issues. The funny thing is that my second and third 360's were from microsoft as replacements for the previous system that acquired the red ring. Go figure.
