Honestly 2 360s have gone bad for me. One of them I fixed with the X-Clamp replacement method.

If you want to avoid the 3 rings it's really simple. 3 rings comes from over heating. So make sure where you play the 360 is in a cool room (pump that AC in the summer), make sure it isn't in a cluttered entertainment stand or closed up behind glass, make sure there is space around it for ventillation and also get a cooling fan (the fan stand not the one that connects in the back) and run that sh*t everytime you play and also leave it on about 20-30 min after you turn off your 360 to cool it down b/c when you shut down the 360 it's internal fans stop spinning even though the system is still hot. I know thats a lot but the system has terrible self cooling and it was layed out terribly.

99% of red rings comes from the GPU chip overheating. If you ever take apart your 360 you'll see that the GPU is right under the DVD drive (genius!) and has a terrible heat sink and no where for the heat sink to release the heat. If MS just lays out the damn board differently the sh*t would not happen anymore but the cost of replacing all these 360 with totally new ones would k!ll their bottom dollar.

I saw some people saying if you bought the warranty and your 360 is one of the malfunctioning ones you can just take it back to the retailer. I bought mine at Sams last summer and it has chopped up my Gears disc and Guitar Hero. Think they'd just take it back if I took it there? Or is my best bet just to send it in to Microsoft?

You knew when you bought it that you only had a year? So your sh*t breaks outside of that and now you feel you have reason to bi*ch? Why do you think there are extended warranties? Suck sh*t up and pay to get it fixed like everyone else.

If you still have warranty left, you bring it back to where you got it and they'll look after you. If you don't, then you have no choice but to send it off

Actually when i bought it i just had only 3 month of warrenty and they extended to a year. Also i got it from dell which didnt at the time had a warrenty for the 360....when you know the 360 were so damn hard to find. And also I aint bi*ching.....its that their customer service sucks and that my 360 decide to break right after the warrenty.

Some retailers might tell you to send it to Microsoft unless you bought their (the retailer's)warranty.
