So I bought this Xbox for my family for Christmas and didn't even have it for 4 months when the Xbox started saying the discs were unreadable.Took good care of it,(always supervised the boys on it, cause you know boys), and troubleshooted, but eventually had to do a Microsoft Repair Request online, and sent it out for repairs.Got a refurbished model back within 3 weeks,(can you imagine the angst of the kids during that time?) and within 2 days of that less than perfect model, the Xbox started reading disc unreadable again along with other undesirable issues like loud fan noise and other weird noises coming from it intermittently.I am in the process of doing another Online Repair Request and I was told that I have to wait another 3 weeks for another refurbished model.
I would like to know if this is a common issue with the Xbox 360 S? The warranty will expire in Jan. 2012.
Anybody out there know anything about this model and it's cons?
I feel really gypped.
My kids are bummed out. It's summer vacation and they both worked really hard and got straight A's.
I just bought a whole bunch of accessories and new games for them and now they don't get to try them and I'm broke. Some Summer.
