2 systems in 5 years is not horrible at all because the warranty lasts 3 years. If it breaks, you send it in, and they give you a new one for free. Like I said, one of them broke almost immediately, so I wouldn't really count it... especially because I've only paid $400 total for my system (one purchase only). It's as if nothing ever happened. They break, you replace for free. I guess if you guys can't live a couple weeks without your system then I can understand, but it's a pretty simple process. Yes, when it boils down to it, this is all opinionated. But, I think the majority of folks would agree that the 360 is better.
