Let me start off by saying I loved Xbox but I just can't do it anymore. This is my 3rd console that has the RRoD completely out of the blue and now only boots for 40 seconds before completely locking up. Called support and they told me to send it in for repair for $120. I told them I'm sorry but I'm not paying $120 to have a 3rd console fixed. They then said they could repair it for $99. I again told them that paying to have a 3rd console repaired is unacceptable at any cost. My PS3 is just as old as this latest Xbox and has about as many hours on it and it's still functioning. Heck, my original Xbox still works! Here's where it gets almost funny. Support tells me they're sorry for my experience with Xbox and this isn't what they want for their customers but if I'd buy the new Elite system it's built with much more robust hardware and doesn't have the "quirks and failure rate" of the old white-shelled consoles. I politely replied with "I hope that's the case but I'm not willing to spend another $300 to be part of an experiment and then potentially be having this conversation a 4th time." So the representative basically just told me the white consoles are known to have problems but my best recourse would be to buy a brand new system and try it again. Umm, no. I just got off the phone canceling my XBL subscription completely.
