I would worry about Philips customer support on a refurb.

4.5 stars from the Amazon reviewers...

I do a daily woot blog where I talk about the woot, link to CSEs, find reviews, etc. A few people have told me it's useful. Google "useful linkage" and there it is.

Is it just me or are all of the TVs sold here relatively expensive if you buy a TV such as Hitachi? I got a 52" Widescreen for 500$ at BestBuy (Overprice City, IMO). Yeah it was a good deal, but I thought that woot was supposed to have the best? :P

Anyways; without my prior experience, it looks like a good deal. :P

I bought one of these new in February for $1000 on sale. It is a great TV for a budget price. I have never had any issues with it, but I do know it isn't top of the line. Highly recommend if you don't mind refurbished.

HDTV? I was hoping for some type of grocery item. Guess
I'll have to go to the store after all. Somebody wake me when the Dow Jones closes.

I have one.

I've been really happy with it, not much to complain about. Great picture.

My only dislike was the speakers, it sounds alot better with simple surround sound systems
(which I noticed on sellout today, thinking about hooking that to my xbox )

Cant bring myself to do the Refurb thing. Now if it was 50% of the new price, Id be willing to risk it. But to save 200 dollars? No thanks Ill stick with new.

90 day warranty. Or at least that's what the product description says if you read it.

I would have preferred a 120 hz since I like to watch fast things on the tube... errrrr???? I mean the screen

My opinion...

This is way too much money for a refurbished electronics item. 90 day warranty?? not nearly long enuf. And if you spring for the $99 to get a year warranty... the price is about $70 less than a brand new one.

Thanks anyway, woot.

What is the refresh rate on this model? 120hz or 60hz?

Seems to be conflicting reports.

60 hz = bad for Blu-ray?

Let the 60 hz vs 120 hz debate begin.

Just bought a Samsung 52" 1080p 240Hz yesterday because of the picture quality.

We went to some new electronics store intown to compare (then bought online ofcourse!) and these tv's didnt look very nice at all compared to pretty much anything else. We spent a good 2 hours sitting and watching different lcd's and there is no comparison with the Sharps and the Samsungs. A TV is a pretty important gadget that you will probably look at for a long time. Why buy a subpar unit that you know embrangles?

Agreed, tread carefully, I'm still working out the bad-in-the-box refurb Philips upconverting DVD player Woot purchased quite some time ago (maybe May?). That was $20. This is not.

I agree that people should spend as much as they can on a good TV. But the Samsung 52" is over twice this price online.
Wouldn't you think a $900 47" would make a decent bedroom or secondary TV?

This is a nice TV at a great price...but in my opinion, I would go with a Samsung instead. I just took my Philips T.V. back to the store and picked up a Samsung in it's place. The picture and sound quality are just far superior on the Samsung. I thought I could live without the advantages...but I soon realized that the picture and sound quality were worth the extra Benjamins. Samsung trumps the rest in my book as far as LCD TVs anyday.
