Yeah I didn't send mine in because I didn't feel like waiting, so I bought the Arcade version. Its been good since then.

wtf is a jasper

i got the arcade version and it was good for like 2 years and then i got the E74 which is like one section of the red ring
never sent it in but borrowed juli's second one (idk why he had 2) and its been good for about a year
except occasionally it just doesnt spin the disc so i literally just have to hit it really hard and then it works again

Why not just send it in though? A week or 2 isn't that long to wait. I mean, I've only had to send mine in 5 times, but it was free every time.

when the 360 released in 2006 the code name for the model was Xenon.
RROD failure happened because the layout of the motherboard positioned the GPU under the discdrive. The heat from movies and games caused the GPU to overheat and warp; RROD failure.

New 360s with better less dense motherboards are called Jaspers. the GPU is across the 360 and not under the disc drive.

If RROD stats increase or any other problems keep occuring Microsoft will release the Valhalla. A perfect scenario motherboard that will ensure that no problems happen to it.

There hasnt been a need for the Valhalla model yet.

PLUS
Microsoft is rumored to be released a new 360 setup with NATAL in a bundle. and another rumor that the 360 slim will have the Valhalla motherboard.

I'm going to, though the only reason is because it's free. Free>$160 for a refurbished. The stupid fuckers forgot to send me an email to get the shipping label so I have to wait a thousand years to get through to an agent who can't speak English well.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe they send you a box?

I know it's an old part of the thread, but 5,000 people is actually a fairly large study.

When you understand how the math of polling works, you don't need to go out and interview a gazillion people to get an understanding of how the larger whole works. As long as your selection process is perfectly random, you can assume that each answer your getting has a statistical probability of being one of those answers.

On that basis, with each increasing person polled the margin of error (as in the possibility that your answers occurred by chance) drops lower and lower. Most studies have a 5% margin of error (meaning that the answer could be skewed 5% more in either direction) and a less than 5% failure rate (meaning that your answer was total chance and doesn't represent reality).

5,000 people is more than even most political polls, I'd vouch for the accuracy of the study. Also, if it was inaccurate, Microsoft would be disputing the shit out of it. Their silence is pretty telling.

Yep, must be why they're replacing it for free. Otherwise people would flip shit if this was as wide a problem as it is and they have to pay for it.

At least they're doing what's right.

Exactly. It's an established standard in the electronics market, motherboard companies and such do the same thing. Computers are inherently unreliable things across the board. I think Apple's Ipods have the same problem.

Although they'd pretty much have to replace all this shit if they didn't want their credibility ruined, so it's not like they're altruists or anything. But with a 50%+ fail rate, they're really forking out the dough.
