I will debate how xbox is a poorly made gaming system. One main reason why i was very upset with the system is the "red rings of death" after you get this your console is complete fried and its useless. Their are tricks that can help your xbox to get back and running but it will only damage your xbox even more. Also after the chip gets the red ring of death most liekly something will get messed up with the system. this has happen to my xbox several time.
The Xbox only gets red rings depending on how the user abuses it. The system is originally made for game play, but overdosed amounts of anything can destroy anything. I've had my Xbox since the day it came out and I still haven't gotten any red rings of death. Sure depending on the model it overheats causing the red rings but you can just buy a fan.
