You do sometimes get a different reconditioned console back. I got a replacement last November when I sent mine in with a E74 error.

My console is currently in Frankfurt being repaired, although microsoft decided to cancel the repair the day the console arrived in Frankfurt, so I don't even know if I'm going to get it back :eek:

Nope, guy on the phone when I rang the helpline didnt seem to know why either, although he did say it should still be repaired and sent back within 2 weeks, and to ring back if i still hadnt had it by then

I have read of 360's being sent in as RROD when that isn't the case and sometimes they get fixed sometimes sent back. Also any case that has signs of tampering or being modified tends to get sent back.

Not saying any of these are the case here but I have seen these cases before.

ye when i got mine back it had some dirty great black mark on it and was clearly a different xbox
Yeah same here! when I sent my xbox back last November. Was always thinking that I would get someone's refub model back and it not being mean. Resulting in it being in poor condition and louder. Lucky got orginal back which is still going strong for my 3rd. Quite too, prob to it being a samsung dvd drive and not the loud hitachi. :)
