I recommend you check out this resource on eBay, it is less than half the price that Gophermods is going to charge for a reball, and is even cheaper than their reflow services:

i'm actually using that service right now...was mainly inquiring about the website everyone used to talk about along with gophermods because i have a 360 i need reballed also. knights doesn't put their pricing up on their site and i cannot for the life of me remember the site i found that only charged 45 for a 360 reball

There was a place called Capital Circuits in NY that was doing reball services on Xbox & PS3. However this company doesn't have good customer service, and tend not to respond to emails. There was one forum member who sent their PS3 to them in July, as AFAIK has yet to get it back. Granted there was a shipping issue that was later resolved, but I don't think he has gotten is system back.

Be sure to tell us your results from that eBay reball source...

I just checked out the Capital Circuits website again and it looks like they aren't taking in any more business. They took down all their prices, and it is not possible to order services over the internet anymore.

The last I read, starting in 2011 they will only do bulk orders...

that's weird, well it just shipped out today 1 day late because of so much business but anyway i assume it to be in full working order when it arrives only time will tell if the reball holds up....i'm gonna sell it to one of my friends to pay for a hefty speeding ticket (LOL) and then send off my 60gb to be reballed. it comes with 1 year warranty so that's cool anyway he seems highly professional and knows what he's doing...very detailed doesn't miss a thing

How much was Capital Circuits charging before? Is anyone else doing reballing? Interested in reputable with 1st hand experience, if anyone has any. I have a Slim now, but would like to bring my 60GB back from the YLOD permanently (DIY with heatgun only lasted a month).
