Re: 360 on watchdog

well to be fair it is shocking. some people are on their 6th console. these things happen sometimes (as fiat owners we all understand ), but how well the vendor deals with it is what matters most, and microsoft havent dealt with it very well so far.

Re: 360 on watchdog

I am still really annoyed about M$ taking my hard drive from the console I had repaired when they promised they would return it, I have about 7 games I no longer want to play because I had almost finished them and I got a replacement console with a new HDD which lost all my saves and there was apparently no fault with the HDD itself. I asked for my old HDD back and there was nothin could be done..... BULLSH*T M$.

If any of these new 360's I have in the house give me the ring of death I'll contact a solicitor and get my money back and then some.

Re: 360 on watchdog

when I bought my 360 the HDD was knackered so I had to replace it, the consloe itself doesn't sound to healthy either. when you pick it up things rattle around inside

Re: 360 on watchdog

I'm gonna tempt fate here and I'll be eating my words,,,,,

I'm still on my original launch console, got it 9th December 2005. I have the occasional freeze after about 4 hours constant play, about once a fortnight.

It lays flat, not upright. And the PSU sits on the floor with no obstructions front or rear. When it was upright, the drive was very noisy and it crashed regulary.

I would recommend to any 360 owner, lay it flat, kepp it clear if poss and keep the PS well ventilated.

Re: 360 on watchdog

would keeping it flat, in a tv unit, along with amp, dvd etc, compromise the airflow? i only ask as all the other equipment i have has been perfectly happy for years in one, and i don't fancy having to make special arrangements for just one item when halo 3 comes along...

Each unit is on a separate shelf with plenty of airflow around them. This seems to work fine, with no probs.
