can not complain, all the horror stories and I bought my Xbox360 Premium way back when the Forza 2 bundle came out... have since upgraded the hard drive and today while watching a movie with a flash drive, it froze up.. upon restart, got the 3 rings, tried disconnecting the power supply and letting it cool down, no luck

already got my 5mm panhead screws and washers, tried finding some thermal paste locally to no avail and ordered it tonight...

have seen the fix done a few times on friend's systems so I'm optimistic.. either way, its been a good system, worst case scenario, i'll just buy an arcade and use my hard drive

true...

i'm going to do the fix first and try to get a year or so out of it... until the next gens drop... no sense in buying a 360 this late in the game unless I have too... still don't want to miss out on the upcoming titles, so I will if I have to
