If you actually want good deals check:
Sorry Woot, I've moved on. I think it happened once you changed the site design. I still say it's too tacky. Yes, I'm one of the persistent ones who stay true to my thoughts.
Here is a true deal:
LG 47LH30 47" 1080p LCD HDTV for $680 with free shipping after applying coupon code EMCYNYN27.
Thank me later, or actually thank slickdeals.
i am woot's god.

Now this is great feedback. I have a friend that works at Jiffy Lube and he told me that I need to change my oil every three thousand miles. I have another friend who sells cars and he insisted I buy the extended warranty and the "undercoat" protection. One of my other friends sells furniture and boy did I feel lucky when she told me about that scotch guard protectant they offer at a nominal fee.
As confucious says..He who is not aware of sales pitch ends up with 120hz and many hundred less in pocket when 60mz meets the vast majoity of viewing needs..
I WOOT, THERE FOR I AM.....

Philips is easy to deal with , but WOOT is impossible. Don't know if I will ever buy a refurbished tv ever again!! It quit working after 2 weeks!! Anyone else have this issue?
I returned a Westinghouse 26" TV I bought in a woot off in December with no problems at all,and it wasn't broken, I was not happy with the scratches in the case. What is the issue?

You have to be a TV subscriber too but they should give you a discount since they're already your ISP. Call them and ask what kind of a deal you can get.

Not terribly relevant to this woot, but does anyone besides me think that the picture on a 120hz TV looks ridiculous? It looks like everything is shot with a soap opera camera. I don't know if I'll ever get used to it.
Are you looking at my junk?

Let me get this straight, you're trying to sell me something with only 60Hz? I can go over to Dell and get something with like, 4GHz for less than this! DAMN IT WOOT, WE DEMAND JIGGA-HURTS!

I got this model during the last woot. I couldn't be happier with it. The stand appears to be rigidly afixed. No adjustment, though I suspect it can be removed. I'm not going to attempt to find out with only one good arm though. Now if you want a long rant on elbow replacements, I'm your man.
You can always find something a few bucks cheaper but c'mon, $5 shipping?!?! For those of us who live two hour drive from the nearest Costco. Three from walmart, this can't be beat. Then again, I'm sure I'm in a minority here where walmart is concerned. It would cost me more in gas than I would save"
A teensy bug
I have my 360 in the composite for now and love it. Cable in HDMI 1. When the 360 turns to Hidef it appears to use the HDMI1 channel. At least that's what the screen indicates. The only issue is the TV sometimes seems to get stuck if I turn off the XBOX before switching back to cable, and refuses to release HDMI1. Sometimes unplugging the comcast box fixes it. Sometimes unplugging the tv, sometimes both, so I'm not 100% certain the fault lies with the set...yet. It's not big enough of an issue for me to waste time on.
The sound is tinny and subpar, just like my old tv. I don't know many people who use their Tv sound system anyway. I doubt you will find a tv with an awaome sound system at a price point below $2000 (just pullin that out of my a.....the air. You get the point).
I think the only people who are going to be unhappy with this set are the overly tech who obsess over minutiae, and it's likely they are never happy with anything that's consumer level anyway. I know many of you. One friend came over and was so determined to find fault with it, he spent hours putting it through it's paces. Finally he announced it was a heap of scaffolding because he didn't like the black level. I seem to recall him complaining about that on his super expensive set as well but I knew better than to bring it up. He spent the next two days "fixing" it over the holidays. When he left the screen was so dark and muddy I couldn't see anything at all, unless it was midnight and a new moon out. I reset it back to the default settings. Whala!** Perfect.

For the average person an average set is fine.
