Default How long have the turnarounds been on your 360?

If you've had the red circle of death and sent your 360 to Microsoft, how long has it been from when you mailed it to when you get it back?

Just curious. This is the only thing that's kept me from buying one at this point. I went with the PS3 months back, but I consider picking up the 360 more and more each day as well.

I mailed it in on a Friday and got it back the Wednesday of the next week. This was in late 06, I got it on it's release date and it got RRoD a few weeks later. Big dissapointment, my dad thought I broke it and was about to beat my ass after we went around for two hours looking for one. But yeah, that's five days, three business.

I had my 360 since it launched and never had a problem with mine. I did have a friend who sent one off and it took about a week. Same friends PS3 also burned up, lol... he had no luck!

Aw man… I got to find a way to kill my 360. I've had mine since launch (build date is 10-31-2005) and it still hasn't RROD yet I got til November for it to die so I can get my warranty coverage.

I bought mine in October 2006. Got the Rings of Death on March 2007. At the time I had a Bestbuy warranty. So I send it in. I don't hear for a few weeks and apparently it got lost on the way there! They gave me no hassles about and send me a gift card for the full value of a new 360. My new one runs cooler and so far has given me no problems.

i got mine through a contest so i got my system the weekend before launch, then it got the ring (ironically) on labor day of last year. luckily the system was covered and i'd say it was about a 2.5-3 week turnaround from when i sent it in.

sonic, if you want to try to kill your system, the only idea i have is to leave it on for long periods of time. don't leave a game in there, cuz it might ruin the game, but it might help you kill your system.
