Getting a refurbished 360 after sending in my power outaged broken 360. Sigh.

so now I'm getting a refurbished one.. I guess they couldn't fix it and the surge protection died in that storm :/

This sucks. I know refurbished ones are terrible and I'll probably have to send it in again in like a month. Anyone else ever gotten a refurbished 360 from Microsoft and if so, how long did it last?

My refurbished 360 has been working great for over two years now.

Well that's good news.

Getting used 360s are much of a gamble. I know someone who had a launch-day 360 that finally red-ringed after 5 years. I got mine from Gamestop refurbished on Wednesday and, aside from some heat in the back, it's been going really well.

If you're still determined to get a used one, definately trust a retailer like Best Buy or Gamestop. DO NOT buy one on Craigslist or eBay, since there's no way of knowing if the system's sold broken, banned, or whatever.
