I don't know what kind of consoles you guys have or even what kind of FSD.
On real life all i know is 3 people with RGH (including me).
We all experience crashes.
One day i jus went into advanced options of a game and bang crash... restart same thing crash... 3 times... Only the 4 time I could get there.
Never had HDD slowdown problems playing or anything. The HDD doesn't also has much use since it's a brand new 120GB hdd from M$ that I recieved cause the other got screwed from connecting it into the pc (a pin got broken).
Also on a forum from my country lot's of people claim LAG, CRASH and BUGS issues with FSD.
And actually I went in their forums, and there's actually lots talking about crashes, lag, and bugs...
Well I bet there isn't more there because just like me they don't even bother going into their forums reporting. If I actually go there and report everything that is bad, and what really must be added, they will probably BAN me so it's better not even going there to report that
But having lot's of bugs in a dash that could do a lot of things in it wouldn't matter much (is fixable over time with updates). Now having a complete crap DASH that does barely not much more than the original M$ DASH is BAD.
ps: Most likely what FSD does is just adding shortcuts to stuff to run them, and not much more, and even that suck specially for the more than 1DVD games that need to use the swap plugin. We have to have two games in the list. In XBMC you could add shortcuts as easy as windows "add to desktop"... But in XBMC xbox didn't just runned the game executables, it runned a whole new level of apps made just for XBMC and not for xbox SDK... DAMN IT. It's just a wish something like that on the 360
