I've had my Elite for 9 months and I love the thing - there are better titles available than any other platform and the 360 wireless controller is the best design around in my book. However, all those of you proclaiming that RRoD is a thing of the past - don't count your chickens. My Elite ringed on me last week for no apparent reason.
It was kept well ventilated, away from other heat sources, and was only used for 2-3 hours each session.
Microsoft have agreed to fix it free of charge - for some reason they have a sale date that indicates that it is out of warranty, even though it should still be covered - but the estimated fix time is 2-3 weeks and it has been sent via UPS to Frankfurt!
Last week I would have awarded 5 stars, but my confidence has been shaken quite a bit - how can I be sure it won't break again when returned?
