RROD Update

My Xbox 360 arrived this morning via Fed Ex. It of course has a new serial number and a manufacture date of 1/2/08. I wonder if it really is a new 360 or are they relabeling the ones they fix. It looks brand new and actually sounds better than my old one. It always sounded like my drive tray would catch a little when I opened and closed the old one and this one sounds perfect. I will have to see how the machine sounds with extended sessions of play, but initially it is very quiet.

Looking back it took exactly 18 days to file the report, get the coffin, send it off and get it back. It wasn't as fast as their support site says, but it was better than waiting a month. Now I just hope that it doesn't happen again.
