I don't own an Xbox 360, but I am a compulsive pollsheep.
It's been a while since I did one of these, so seeing as my Elite died a couple of days ago it seems like now is as good a time as any to take a new poll.
For bonus points, post the revision of the last 360 that died on you, and/or the one you have right now. Here is a guide to help you identify which one you have.
My Elite died. It was a Falcon.
My original, first batch Elite died earlier this year. Both my white falcon and my replacement elite (also falcon) seem to be fine.
My Falcon died about two weeks ago. It was one of the first manufactured of that type.
I have a launch day 360, Xenon, that's still going strong.
You should have set the poll up to explicitly break down the failures by console type. I'm particularly curious about the failure rate for Falcons, given that my two-month-old one just died.
Yeah, this doesn't seem likely to teach us much that we didn't already know, since it's not specifically focused on the new consoles. The 'yes' answers are going to be pretty worthless in terms of new data, since the original 360 reliability problem is well known at this point. I'm far more interested in how reliable the new model consoles are, but this kind of poll doesn't seem like the way to get at that data.
It is a bit confusing. I thought you were going to ask if it had died this year. Or if the newer one had died this year. The extra options are cool, but only for the 'no' answer.
No idea which revisions my systems were, but I've had 8 go. 6 of those were to the 3 red ring the other 2 were to various video card problems. 3 have been replaced by microsoft 5 have been replaced by my local EB Games. Of those 5 three were within free warranty period, 2 were covered by the extended warranty.
I have one of the first Elites -- bought it about three weeks after they came out and it's still working. But a big caveat -- I rarely fire up my 360. The longest session I've ever played is maybe a few hours with Crackdown.
I've had my unit since August 2006 and it's been thoroughly abused ever since, sometimes being left on while not in use and such.
The only real flaw with it is that the fans are pretty fucking loud.
My first Xbox 360 (bought in Oct 2006) died and was replaced during summer 2007, the refurb replacement is still going strong.
My Xbox 360 Elite (bought Sept. 2008) hasn't yet had any problems at all.
My first 360 (bought in November, 2007) died in January (2009). The refurb is way better (quieter, doesn't scratch my discs!!!!).
My Elite Falcon died about 3 months ago. It wasn't a real RROD problem, though, it was an E73 error, which wasn't warrantied.
My launch premium failed after just a year.
Got a refurb back, but havent played it much since I got the PS3... its too loud, and I'm too scared.
In fact I buy most of the multiplatform releases for my ps3 precisely because I cant stand the thought of investing in a library for a machine thats prone to failure.
Then again, my PAL launch ps3 has also gone for a fix... :(
