I have a roughly 5 year old xbox 360 (one of the old premium package ones) that recently suffered a red ring of death (3 red lights flashing.) Microsoft wants to charge me $100 plus S/H and maybe even tax to refurbish it. I have several questions before I follow this.
1. If they cannot fix it and they send me a refurbished new one, will they return my hard drive? I do not want to lose all my saved games!
2. Is it worth paying $100 to refurbish it? I don’t think I want to use one of the other services as they seem suspicious, but I could purchase a refurbished hard drive from Ebay (less than $100) and swap the hard drives right?
Thanks for reading and please give me your advice!
