Just got the RROD an hour ago on my Dec. 2006 Hitachi drive version. I have already sent it in once a year ago for a bad "scaler chip", Error 80 I believe. I hadn't played it in a few days days and it died 4 kills into a online game of Bad Company.
Hopefully MS will replace the unit for another with a better disc drive as I've been getting some scratched up discs lately:(
Well it's already on the way back. It's the same system.
I requested a repair on Saturday the 6th, got the label/box on Tuesday the 9th, and I dropped the 360 off at the UPS store Wednesday at 2:30pm EST, it arrived at the service center Friday at 4:44pm EST.
The shipping notification was electronically filed on Sunday the 14th. It didn't move yesterday, and it just updated as in transit today at 2:20pm EST.
Estimated arrival is Thursday the 18th
