Just purchased an elite 4 days ago and already the red ring of death! I bought it from best buy and they already replaced it but can't believe it happened so soon. My last xbox was stolen about a year ago and have been wanting to replace it and thought this was the best time to do so. But never had any problems with it in the past. Hope it doesn't happen again.
AH thats why. Only buy the WHITE box with the elite. Thats the newest version with the Jasper chip. Thats why you had the RROD. You had the Falcon. Look at amazons picture of the box.. thats the one you want. If best buy gave you another gray box, take it back now!!!! Just order one from Amazon if best buy doesn't have the white box version.
I just noticed that they are selling the COD Elite Limited Edition 360. I contacted Best Buy and they said that I could return my original purchase within 30 days and buy the new Limited Edition with the 250 gig hard drive! It will put me with out an Xbox for a week, but I've been without one for months so I think I can wait. Pretty stoked about this.
The Limited edition unit wont be avaiable till November 10th. So you will be out till then. I see Amazon isnt currently listing the COD elite at the moment. Grrr.. maybe I should have ordered one sooner.
