I waited for launch day to get my 360 and unfortunately i have already had to send it in 3 times for RRoD! (One time I waited for Halo 3 for 2 hours and when I got home and opened up the CD tray put Halo in and when it closed it whirled a second and the RRoD came up AT THAT VERY MOMENT!) Back on track though... So I have been having some "Unreadable Disk" Issues going on. I have to open and close my tray multiple times to get it to work and usually at about the 3rd-5th time of opening and closing it will work. I called MS tech support to check and see if warranty would cover and found out that RRoD is covered for 3 years BUT the Optical Drive and everything else is 1 year warranty. DAMNIT! They want me to pay 99$ for a repair/replacement drive. I thought about it and then the price drop occured on the 360. For a 100$ more i can get a new/fresh 360 without the wear and tear i put on my current one. My question is, Is my thinking on this a good idea or am I flushing 100$ down the toilet? They say i get an additional yr of warranty but i get a new 3 yr warranty on the RRoD if i purchase new. I am also thinking, aren't they on a different chipset of xboxs right now? That don't fail as often? and that are Quieter than before? Cause my current one still sounds like a Commercial Airliner taking off when i turn it on.
