Are any of you still using a original 360 from 2006?

    Well it's no one's fault that the xbox 360 gets a red ring of death. It was just a mechanical error on Microsoft's behalf. They released millions of bugged consoles onto the market that we would all soon to experience the dramatic 3 red rings. Sure it was shortly fixed, but till today people still remember Microsoft for being that one company to release faulty consoles. I don't think it will ever happen again since they've taken the precautions to make sure it won't ever happen.

    I think I had a 360 from 2007 and he didn't make it. He started giving me the RROD during a LEGo Batman session and then it was downhill from there. Fortunately, it didn't take long for them to come out with the Slim as I would've wanted it anyway.

    My friend Benj is still using his original first generation Xbox 360. I'm not sure how it's lasted this long even without the RROD problem. Guess manufacturing is just that undependable.

    My original ps3 and 360 still work. But I'm also known to keep my systems in well vented areas and clean.

    Nope, my first 360 got the Red Ring of Death so I'm currently on my second 360.

    I had the original 2006 360 up until a month after the launch of Halo Reach. I was playing Reach for hours upon hours so the red ring of death was inevitable in the situation. Since I didn't have any warranty obviously I decided to buy a Slim 360. When you upgrade from a launch 360 to the newest model the change in the amount of sound that your system makes is phenomenal.

    I honestly don't know how some people can have an original xbox 360 from back then. I got RROD once and I did some research and took my xbox apart and redid some soldering and it has been good every since.

    I know a few people with the original that need to just let it die, they have sent it back about 10 times already.

    I still have an original, but I also have a slim. I don't use my original as much anymore though.
