Suppose it depends whats wrong with the Xbox, theres no point in replacing a working DVD drive if its not necessary it would cost to much....

but whats making me think is the one i sent back last week went with a sammy drive and came back with a benq so it asks the old question do they just refit your case onto someone else board or do they have a pile of pre fixed cases which they just put your cover over as i have not seen any way to identify your board from any other

This is why i asked the question was the recent stint of lite on drives down to a shortage of repaired box's or was it a deliberate exercise from microsoft to test these drives for reliability etc
