Wootalyzer's Pricing Post! - Saving Woot prices for decades to come
------------------------------------------------------------
Each night at 12:00, the price of the old Woot item mysteriously goes missing -- forever. What happens to this price, you may ask? According to our "highly-accredited" sources, the Russian mafia has hacked Woot's servers and permanantly erases the price each night! MWAHAHA! But Wootalyzer is here to help! Our Woot-Security System 2000 stores the price on our multiple secure servers, SAFE from those crazy Russian hackers! Oh wait... maybe that's not completely true. By "Crazy Russian Hackers," perhaps I meant to say "Crazy Woot Development Monkies." And by "Woot-Security System 2000," perhaps I meant to say "Forum Post." Meh, Close Enough.

sunday... so i'm keepin' it light... check useful linkage for the comparison links... and then go to bed... cuz i don't think this woot is worth staying up any longer for... hehe... just kidding... its awesome... do it.

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.

Whoa, wait, is Woot making fun of Joss Whedon's Firefly? Woot's about to lose a customer...

Targus universal. I never trust their idea of universal. Would rather specific models be listed.

Anyone have a link ?

Well, this might be useful if your laptop doesn't have a custom docking station. It seems like you'd get a lot of slowdown filtering all your peripherals through a single USB port...

What, exactly, does this do? I'm not a technerd, therefore I'm lost on this stuff.

How does this fit all laptops? Is this a quality product? Targus seems to be good quality for cheap prices. At least all of the products that I own from them are pretty good.

If I use this, then connect to my desktop (which is connected to my printer), will I be able to print things from my laptop without problems?

Uhhh... Typo?

# Power Ports: Two power ports provide twice as much power (1,000 mA) as standard USB ports – Always On: Power ports remain powered even when notebook is shut down or disconnected (perfect for recharging mice, phones and other devices)
# Adapter Friendly USB Ports: USB ports are double spaced to accommodate larger adapters Power ports remain powered even when notebook is shut down or disconnected (perfect for recharging mice, phones and other devices)

Is this device about as stupid as the previous "run everything through a single USB port" they were selling perhaps 6 months ago?

Would woot if its supported Macs, which doesn't seem to be the case c/o its description.

Works with Vista (driver download at end of manufacturer page), but not with 64-bit.

hard to choose, but I'm gonna say Our Mrs. Reynolds, because it has a couple of my favorite Firefly moments in it.

WINDOWS 2000 SP4 is a requirement - MAN this is a SERIOUSLY OLD unit.

USB 1.0 perhaps??? WTH do you do with 16 bit color?????????????????? That is SO early 90's

Crappy gear - cheap price though.

Great concept but the product is not very good. The Video through USB just doesn't function properly. I almost bought one, but then a buddy who works at the local best buy pointed me to their "returns" pile for the week... about 1/4 of all products returned were this stupid docking station. Sad. I remember when Targus was a respected name in the industry - now they have hit-or-miss quality.

Why even run vista if not on 64bit ?

I'm digging the Whedon love in the forum

Did you all get your Serenity Collector's Edition that came out this week?

And to stay on topic, I am tempted to woot this but I'd really like to see a built in fan in a unit like this, not just elevation. Anyone know if Targus makes anything close?
