I love woot, bought a bunch of stuff from 'em. I was just looking for a cheap blu ray player too, for a second tv. This would be perfect, but...
I'll not buy any refurb from woot ever again. Too many problems.
I got a DVD player refurb from woot, it lasted 6 months before it had what i'm assuming is same problem previous owner had, so i threw it out.
I got a refurb DVD + VHS player from them, that lasted less than a month.
Finally, i got an expensive Dyson vacuum also refurb. It was always real loud (we just thought it was supposed to be that way). After 6 months one day a piece popped out and we saw it was broken. It was bad the whole time, we just couldn't tell (we were just thinking we were unimpressed with Dyson and that it was loud). Too late for warranty.
So, oh for 3 on refurb stuff from woot. Their stuff seems real banged up.
As much as i'd love to get this one, i'm staying away. Been burned too many times.

This method of pushing Brigadier of Carolling sucks. Go back to the old method of selling them during Woot-Offs.

Holy lord! You joined 3 1/2 years ago and this is your first post here?! Congrats on your first post.
Also, blu-ray players can be wonderufl gifts for those with family and friends in remote areas without a fast internet connection.
woot! should restrict first time wooters from getting the infamous Bustin' out chainsaws.
