Red Ring of Death

April 26, 2007

Having owned four Xbox 360’s simce shortly after the launch in November 2005, I suppose it was just a matter of time before I suffered from the dreaded "red ring of death." What I wasn’t exepcting, was that it would affect the Xbox in our basement that is the least used on any in the house. (It has been used only a few times a month.)

I had hoped for some sympathy in this regard from Xbox support when I called and explained my situation. No such luck. Instead I was treated to a dialog something like this from Mark the supervisor.

So I now must pay $139 to replace this piece of hardware. Aside from the irritation that I am having to go through this because of a product that seems to have some flaws, this isn’t a big deal. If I were a high school kid who has saved to buy his Xbox and had this happen, that would be a big deal.
