Except the likelihood of an older 360 getting the 3rrod is far greater.
From my experience it isn't that hard to repair. I have repaired 10 and I have not had a customer come back complaining yet. I have also repaired mine and my fathers, my only failed attempt was my cousins and that was just because he sliced some of those micro-sized traces on the bottom of the MOBO by the X-Clamp.
I have a 12 month warranty on my repairs and no one has come back yet so I guess that is a good sign.
