Microsoft Xbox 360 Slim / broken product

1 United States Review updated:

Purchased a brand new xbox slim from gametop with built-in hard drive. the disc tray has already broken within a few months. it just keeps blinking forever and believes the disc tray is always opening. i have had too many xbox 360s break to count.

I believe i know the solution to the millions of people who have had broken xbox360s and the infamous red ring of death. = don't store/play vertically

The xbox should not be vertical! gravity causes the components to lose their alignment over time!--especially the laser or lens used to read the disc and see that it is indeed in place. you should never store it vertically even though it saves room. i realized all my friends who store it on its side have never had any problems. but like most of m's products, they ultimately fail and break.

    This is my second x box console in the past two months...first the first one was an elite, and it was making clacking noises where the disc was banging into the side and would not stand up, so when laid back down it would still clack, took it back and got the xbox 360 s the games are starting to freeze, which means the hard drive is failing, cleared cache and has 225 gb of 260 gb memory left... Xbox service is really exceptional and will make it right...said to take back to store and will honor it if they wont. it just saves time than sending it back. as for the x box experience, they need to have a place where the trolls kick people or try to get your health removed by throwing you to fire or closing doors, shooting you and playing other tricks.. leaving a bad gamer live on line experience playing with others, they dont have a solution to having a place for the badasses to go to and leave regular players who want to have fun and are still experienced to enjoy the gaming online experience.
