Watch out for the battery packs on those things. I've heard of three different cases now where they have caught fire to the carpet they've been sitting on (of course those guys were hours into an RPG).
I have had mine since July 27. I have only had one problem and that is when i play NCAA. after a couple games it says it can't read the cd, so i take it out wipe it and its fine. Other than that no complaints, its awesome
I don't know if I'm just being picky, but I played Madden 07 Demo at Circuit City the other day and in between plays, the game seemed to drag a bit. The screen would be slowly loading then it would go to the screen for the next play. The actual gameplay was smooth but the transition between play calling screen and the running of the play seemed slow. Is this an issue anyone has exerienced or is it just the display model? Or me just being picky?

thats good advice I actually pull mine off the shelf it lives on and put it alone in the middle of the carpet when I play it.
Ive had it about four months sox 06.
I'm hoping the newer 360s have some of the kinks worked out.
