    Pay the 100 to MSoft for the repair, go with a semi-sketchy ~$100 "refurbished" model from Ebay, or pay $200 for a new one from Amazon and have it here in 2 days?

    I've had two quit, although neither for the traditional RROD. Purchased one of the new models which are quieter, have better components, and run cooler. Just get a new one and hopefully it will be your last until the new xbox models are shipped in a few years.

    I have an extra data transfer cord lying around somewhere if you want to borrow it - but you have to pick it up in Broomfield

    Thanks, but I probably won't need it (I hope). I'm actually planning on putting the old HD in the slim (easy hack) or just transferring everything by using a 16 GB usb drive.
