Ive only had it 9 months. I was hoping for at least a year before i had to ring microsoft and shout at them down the phone!
I just had to send mine in for the 2nd time, but this time I did it all online via xbox.com and it was pretty painless, got it back 11 days after mailing it in. I did have to take it to UPS and pay for the box and packing since I didn't have any, but they gave me a free month of xbl. I know it's not great to have it break but both times I've had it repaired it was an easy process.
