i will probably order from Woot again .... but not "high-dollar" electronics.
I ordered something last Wednesday from another online vendor.
Here is the tracking info for that item (I had no idea when I ordered that they were sending it 'SmartPost').

So, with any luck I'll have that item a mere seven days after it was ordered. Which isnt too bad.
With all that said .... so far I have had no issues with my Nook. I have not tried to sideload any books/files. I have simply downloaded a few free books from B&N and enjoyed reading them (which of course was my reason for ordering the Nook).
The only thing I will mention is the battery life (not a complaint, just a mention for comparison). I fully charge it about every three days. I know the 'specs' say it will hold for ten days, but I dont know if they mean 'idle' time or 'reading' time. I am however reading my Nook several (about 5 or 6) hours a day. So I'm ok with that battery life as long as it stays that way and doesnt suddenly start draining faster.
