Do the xbox 360 elites have any problems? Do they get the ring of death?

Yes, there are still problems reported with the 360 elites.

Please don't place too much faith in the commentary provided by, Uchiha_Hai. It is nothing more than slandering microsoft.

I've provided documentation describing microsoft's warranty, and repair policies. I've detailed compensation one is entitled to if a 360 unit should require repairs.

Adequate measure have been taken to ensure microsoft isn't bending over the consumer and running away with the money invested in a 360 console.

so spending the extra 100 dollars on an elite is pretty much pointless, right?

If your rationale for making that decision is to avoid hardware issues, it is pointless--yes.

the only major difference in the elite is hdmi.

120gb hard drive isn't necessary. I really have no idea how someone can use that much storage for save game files and downloads from xbox marketplace.

All Xbox 360s are protected by a three-year manufacturer's warranty. Call Microsoft when it breaks, they will send you a pre-paid shipping box and all you have to do is but the console in the box and take it to UPS or call UPS to come and pick it up. Initially the warranty was 90 days, then they extended it to one year, now they've extended it to three years. Free of charge.

I bought a 360 on launch day and had to return it FIVE TIMES within the first year or so. They refused to send me a brand new, non-refurbished unit. So after they repaired it for the fifth time, I put it on ebay and sold it (this is after I wrote a scathing letter to Bill Gates and four other MS execs...one even replied).

Despite all this, I'm seriously considering buying another 360. It seems their problems have mostly been resolved and PS3 just doesn't move me at all. And after almost a year w/ no system, I'm starting to get a serious jonez.
