On February 15th, tragedy struck as my beloved Xbox 360 fell victim to the Red Ring of Death (RROD).
The purpose of this video is not to bash Microsoft. I primarily made this to brush up on my video editing. Still, I love my 360, and I look forward to the arrival of my replacement console. In fact, I have been quite impressed by Microsoft's devotion in providing replacement consoles in what must have been a substantial allocation of resources.
However, the fact of the matter is that these consoles were hastily pushed through the design/testing phase of development to meet marketing goals and Microsoft has yet to produce a stable and reliable motherboard.
I took exceptional care of my system. As you can see it's sitting out in the open on a cool tile floor (not on carpet or in an enclosed space).
Microsoft has announced plans to release a new motherboard with a new 65nm GPU alongside the recently-added 65nm CPU. Let's hope they finally fix the RROD issue once and for all.
On a side note, when I dropped my return box off at UPS, the clerk instantly recognized the packaging and said that they get 3-4 return drop-offs a day...
