I haven't got mine yet. I wonder if Woot has 2 or more order fulfillment warehouses and one is shipping new correct units and one is shipping f'd up refurbs. Mine is coming from Dallas TX and is due tomorrow (to Oregon). I will cross my fingers and hope that it doesn't come with the crappy firmware.
I got mine today after all. I turned it on and got the tour. It seems to be working ok, searching for wireless network and all. I won't let it connect to my work network. It seems to have firmware version 1.7.1186 from going to the firmware load screen. The sticker at the bottom says the mfg date is July 2010. It looks new, all virginal shrinkwapped and all.
I'll check it out more when I get home.
nothing to see here, move along
