How do you feel about dust on your console.

Really I clean the tv screen with it all the time. The stuff is off if that matters.


TV screen's fine, often generates a charge itself, but I wouldn't use it on a console or PC. Your gear, though.

I hate dust. I dust my electronics a least once a week.

So do it. Unfortunately my nerdcave is in my basement, so it's kind of hard to keep it dust-free (I don't know what the deal is down there). I've thought about relocating my stuff to a ground-floor room, but I really like that basement room.

Electricity does that with dust.

Also being someone who takes care of stuff and still I lost my first 360 to RROD. Even thought not my fault I am extra careful with my newer ones. Compressed air every now and then through the side vents produces quite a dust poof out the top vent. The power brick also had little vents you can blow through and get dust out.

I wouldn't recommend doing that. You could end up blowing dust in parts it should not be. I usually use a vacuum and suck it out of vents and openings.

So, instead of blowing the dust into places it shouldn't be, you suck it into those same places?

Noy exactly. Even if it does some it would not be to the extent of blowing it deeper inside. What would you recommend then without taking the console apart?

To blow or suck that is the question? :)
Yeah I know this isn't going to end well.
