I've had one since Launch Day, logged a couple thousand hours on it between my son and myself....

Zero issues and it is in a corner cabinet that isn't as well ventilated as it should be.... I DID stand the power brick up on its' side (perched on the cord input area) so the brick is well ventilated. I think this is the source of most people's problems. The brick gets too hot and bad stuff happens....

Bought my first one ~1yr ago. No issues. Bought a 2nd one a week before Xmas, last year. Lasted about 2 hours and got the red lights of death. The power button on the 360 didn't feel right from the start. Defective? Returned it for another one. No issues with the replacement.
