"Great games; great controller and great Media Center"5.0 starson by MAK1981
Pros: My TiVo died last year, and I ended up able to hook my computer to the XBox360 for Media Center functionality, and I couldn't live without it. I also love the online capabilities, great games, and controllers. I haven't had a any problems with it.
Cons: A lot of people get the Red Ring of Death. I haven't had that yet (knock on wood), and I've had it going on 3 years. My brother-in-law's fried, and Microsoft repaired it, no problem, in two weeks. My brother's died, and no problems repairing, too.
Summary: Even if my XBox360 fries, I'll be repairing it and/or getting a new one. I can't live without the Media Center, I play games all the time, and the controller is great. There is no question that quality control isn't up-to-snuff, but Microsoft delivered with their ridiculously long warranty extension. You don't even need a receipt! Sure, it's a hassle, and something you'd rather avoid, but Microsoft did their part to help the consumer as much as they could. If XBox360 comes out with a Blu-Ray add-on, I'll be buying that, otherwise I may have to get a PS3. But all-in-all, I couldn't be happier with my system, and this review has been three-years in the making! I think that's more than can be said about half of these fake reviews from people who don't own the system, or had it for 2 days and unfortunately (if it's even true), had a bad experience.
