So I went to meritline.com and ordered the same thing for $15 more ($280 shipped). It was sent out the same day (5/26) and I received it today via USPS. They used the shipping method mentioned in a previous post (FedEx hand off to USPS) and it came from California and arrived today in NJ. It's replacing a rooted Nook Color (selling to a friend for $200. Same price I paid on Barnes & Noble Ebay deal a fews months back). The screen is much brighter than the Nook Color and it is definitely more responsive. I guarantee that anyone who ordered one will not be disappointed.
You know its funny you added this much more information to what I was getting at with the meritline.com deal!
I too exactly ordered this item because it was the best price I found so far online during the day of the deal, the idea behind getting the galaxy tab is to replace the rooted nook color I am sick of messing around with.
The wife gets my rooted nook color or it may be put to stock and I get a complete no hassle tablet aka the galaxy tab. During the woot deal of the day I found fatwallet.com and an add for the same refurbished galaxy tab at meritline.com which would of been cheaper for me to get here in WA since I had to pay sales tax thanks to amazon being affiliated with WOOT!
I now regret getting it through woot because I know meritline.com is a trusted source and I would have already received it here in WA instead of waiting on woot for a week or week and half just to ship the thing.
Well I learned my lesson, if you want it ASAP and make sure the deal doesn't go sour, look somewhere other than woot.com.
Anyhow I am sick of updating and re-rooting a nook color one of the many different ways just to get anywhere from 50 percent to 90 percent functionality out of it. I am also tired of the crappy performance from the mono speaker and low volume level.
So the plan was get a 3G galaxy tab since it has better hardware than the wifi version of it, and give the nook color to the wife. Found this deal then found the one on meritline.com. My gut was telling me to cancel woot.com order which you probably cannot anyways, and order from meritline.com, well I didn't want two of the same product so I was stuck with woot.
By the way, thank you WOOT! :P
Let us know how the refurbished sprint version from meritline.com treats you! Also if you could give us the kernel information and android version and the radio baseband info it would be great (firmware too)!
