Hands down the most poorly designed console in the history of video games.
There are third party cases available that look like a computer tower. Better fans and much better air flow. Of course, you can kiss your warranty goodbye with one of those, but at the same time a case like that could mean you wouldn't need a warranty...

they don't send you a box, but you do get a pre paid shipping label... just go to the UPS store, and its $7.00 to have them box it up... just make sure you take your HDD off, and send them no cables

+1 even the disc reader is crap. I've never seen in my life any sort of equipment that handles discs, and will completely ruin them if you move them at all while it's reading the discs. Older play stations, CD players, computers, I think they purposely made it do that so they could sell more games.
Of course I've only had DiRT and DiRT2 and have always left my console standing up, and both my discs are fine, I don't see why one would want to move it anyway...

They quit send out the boxes with the pre-formed foam?
That sucks it was perfect, hell I still have one somewhere.
The reason they screw discs is the little locking pivot doesn't actually lock.
The one one the PS3 is magnetic, the one used in most Portable CD players have 4 little locking BB's XBOX has squat, so yea do not move it while it is turned on.

I have always wondered if the design is so flawed because they were in a rush to be the first of the current-gen consoles on the market. The original Xbox was very reliable.

I've read about it somewhere. In fact, I remember some lady wanting to sue Microsoft for putting such a lame ass system on the market, because they wanted to beat the race for the next-gen gaming consoles. or something like that...

Naaa, it was an engineering flaw. One, underpowered power supply to try and keep them cool in the cheap ones and two, was the higher powered power supplies were too hot. It's one of those running f-ups you either over-engineer it to make it last longer or keep profits up by engineering it up just enough to seemingly get by. The cooling system was a joke, (Laptops running half the video have more cooling.) and well the should have been good enough cheapo soldering joints couldn't take the heat.

P.S. everyone wanted to sue for about a year or two when there was no inplace countermeasure, cause Microshit was trying to say screw it sorry bout your luck and on the verge of a overwhelming Class Action they buckled for a nominal amount and offered to stand behind their screw up to appease the other couple million.

Even if it isn't, we'll still buy it. And Microshaft knows it.
