    Do you keep it locked in a tiny box or something like that?

    Nope, in an open cabinet with loads of ventilation space, irony of it is the windows are open and there is a nice cool breeze blowing over it too! Poor show MS, poor show!

    I am also still on my first xbox, whilst admittedly it is getting quite noisy, for nearly 2 years of usage, its lasted me well, never had any red rings either!

    Anyone would think they are cheap, poorly designed and put together.

    Still, the online service is more important than the actual console (tongue in cheek).

    Have you got really bad power there? constant brownouts or spikes could cause damage and additional stress to internal components. As its the fourth one to go I would be suspecting environmental factors. Also could it be a dodgey cable or TV input, my Xbox trips sometimes if the cat has got in behind the TV and put weight on the cable dislodging it slightly. I have also seen a moniter (Chimei CMV221D 22") that has slowly degraded and seems to put additional strain on the GPU output causing them to cook over time. Perhaps hook the Xbox up via a spike protector if not already and a spare UPS if you have one. I'd also look into trying it with a different HDMI cable and the older style component outputs to try and isolate it out.

    There is a surge protector in there somewhere

    Touch wood it hasn't happened again, I think it may have just been a one off!
