Never had a 360 die one me, I traded in my 20GB for credit on an Elite 2 years ago, still no problems.
" My Halo 3 Edition red ringed and they fixed it (seriously) and I'm using it right now! "I've got a Halo 3 edition as well and I hope it doesn't poop out anytime soon because I'm pretty sure they'd give me a crappy normal refurbished piece here if it did. Is yours noisey as well? The new Elites seem really quiet compared to mine.
I'm on my second, first died in the middle of Fallout 3, kinda happy it did happen as my warranty was only a few weeks off and judging by the terrible load times it had been enduring for a while and regular crashes for no reason, I was more relieved when it did happen knowing I'd get a freebie repair.
My original Xenon 360 died on me once and I had it replaced (it was still within the extended warranty period for RRD replacements) though I hardly play on that one anymore (and in fact, I have taken it apart just out of curiosity). Ever since I got my Arcade (a Jasper model with a 120GB hard drive attached), it hasn't died on me once, which is the main reason why I no real incentive to shell out for one of the newer slim models.
Launch 360 - Still works
Launch Elite - Still works
Launch 360S - Still works
I think im in a minority but have never had a console, handheld or PC die on me. I still play my gameboy sometimes and my Master System is plugged into my retro TV for mad Shinobi action.
I'm either on number 5 or number 6 (including refurbished ones). Honestly, I've lost count. I'm being dead serious too. It wasn't as big of a deal as it could've been though since they were all under warranty...except for the one that I have now (knock on wood).
