Got my repaired unit today. Its manufacture date is 7-10-2006
. Yeah that is going to break in a week. Oh well I have a pretty good idea of how the process works.
I'm dreading this as well. When my first unit broke, I was sent one that was 6 months older. When the DVD drive on that one died, they just swapped it out and sent it back. I'm hoping the current RROD is serious enough to warrant a new unit. Although, with a manufacture date in early 2006, I don't think they could possibly send me one that is actually older.
