I know there have been a lot of people who have had issues and I truly feel for them. However I want to throw out my expereince. I have had mine since October. I believe it has the newer boards. I have not had one problem with it other than a connector that came lose and was easily fixed.
WIth the new code update I have been playing this more than ever.
Not trying to hijack the thread but if the buyer is looking for a machine to buy. He should know that not every machine has had issues.
