    People it is only for red light issues and i still recommend getting (paying for) the Extended three year warranty for all other issues just incase your xbox 360 dvd rom dies ... no red light issue.

    sorry buddy, i'm on my 7th console, ALL of which have been different consoles sent each time, ALL with old manufacture dates (check the back of the console). They told me it was policy that after your 3rd failure they would send a 'new' console. Ya... well, that's never happened
    :\
    hope your luck is better than mine
