Unfortunately tonight I had to use the PRP for my XBox 360. Everything went smooth and I was happy with the service. However, now I'm aware that my new console (I upgrade to an Elite) has a different kind of protection, and I'm a bit annoyed. My question is:
What does the "Black Tie" protection give me? The answer seems like not much, but maybe I'm missing something. If I have a problem during the 1 year Microsoft warranty...they will mail the box to Microsoft for me. Which I could do myself. If it's past the one year and it's *not* the RRoD they will...mail the box to Microsoft, but I won't have to pay the repair fee. If it is the RRoD they will do nothing.
So what exactly did I just pay $60 for?

I went today to clarify and it would seem the answer is "not much". Oh, wow, they'll take care of all the paperwork for mailing back to Microsoft. Yeah, like that's hard. The difference between taking it to Best Buy and taking it to the UPS store with a prepaid label is incredibly minimal. Oh, and they don't cover RRoD at all, but they'll still mail it for you.
I think I'll get my $60 back.
