Out of the 3 people I know that have a 360, they have had no problems with theirs. I've never had a problem with my launch box either.

If Microsoft wasn’t so rich they would have been kick out of the video game industry a long time ago, this and the red ring of death is not good enough! If you buy there products your nothing more than beta testers

The very same thing could have been said about the Playstation 2, it reached a point where sony ended up getting sued.

i believe she is referring to scratched disks but incorrectly said HDD. the inq's article title and the first paragraph suggest that anyway.
