    You do realise that you should get a full refund of your 'paid for' extended warranty because Micro$haft have extended the warranty on ALL 360's to 3 years anyway (at no extra cost) ;)

    PS: nice addition of 'Peripherals/Accessories:', I will add this section now ;)

    Sometimes mine has a error starting up with a game in the tray, the dirty disc error. Open and shut the tray and works great from there but a bit loud....

    I will join im gettin one sometime this week for sure, but i don't know what day. hopefully tommorow would be nice. Um, on question, what is the possibility i will get a fried one right out of the box? Because that would really blow! I know they have 3 year warranty's but still that another drive to get another one or the wait for a fixed one.

    I haven't heard about too many DOAs.

    It's usually heat that kills them, and unused 360s don't produce heat. lol

    Not the one that plugs into the main power port. It's known to kill them. Don't know about the usb powered ones tho.

    I know you guys pry dont wanna do it, but I took mine apart and put a fan on the CPU heatsink and changed both heatsink thermal greases. Now the 360 only gets warm instead of burning hot like it did. I have burn marks on the plastic and metal where it got hot.
