The Inquirer reports:
"Shortly after our Xbox 360 went to the mass-grave of RROD failures, when playing the mediocre Halo 3, we sent it off to Microsoft for our free repair. We packaged it nicely. Dusting off the original retail box from storage we carefully placed the 360 in, coupled with the PSU and a substantial amount of original packaging.
