I’m usually a big fan of whatever rolls off the Microsoft production line. Not so with the first generation of Xbox 360s from a few years ago – these have to be one of the most flawed pieces of technology in history. After getting my early Xbox 360 fixed no less than 3 times I was frustratingly still getting the red ring of death.
I then implemented a permenant fix of my own – I took it outside and smashed it with a mattock – very satisfying after many years of frustrations.
PS. Yes I did buy a new one on sale for $198.
