I just exchanged one for the 3rd time last week! The first one I had was making this high pitched whining noise coming from the rear vent, I assumed there was a problem with the fan so I returned it and exchanged it for a new one. Then the second one I had seemed fine, no whining noise. But then after a while the disc drive started making this odd chirping sound when spinning at it’s highest speed, and I never recall it sounding like that when I first got it. So me being the neurotic freak that I am, I returned it yet again! And now, less than a week later, the disc drive in the new console is making that same chirping noise! Is this normal or is it a malfunction?
Also, every console I had seems to blow hot air from the rear vent after playing for about 15 – 30 minutes. Since everyone I ever had did that I assumed it’s a normal functionality, but just to be on the safe side I’d like to know, is anyone else is experiencing that as well?
