FWIW, batteries are often not included in refurbished product. Batteries weren't listed as included for this item.
This whole "no Shipping information" is totally F-ing with my impulse buy mentality. If I can't watch this thing progress across the country, and may have to wait until Monday for some random fly by night shipping company to pick up the TV, I may contact CS and cancel this order before it ships.
Also, I don't know what anyone else here does for a living, but I work. I don't exactly have time to sit on my thumb waiting for a TV to show up, that may or may not appear on the day of shipment, in a 5 to 30 hour window.
Additionally, this is the second order that has been sitting in the "Awaiting Shipping" section for a week, with no expected shipping date in the foreseeable future.
I suppose my biggest fear is that by the time this thing gets here, people won't even be watching TV on a screen anymore, it'll be something you jack into the side of your head, and although my shiney new refurbished 55 inch TV will be pretty nice, it will also be busted, with no way for me to return it. ( I drive a jeep, so dropping this off at a shipping depot somewhere won't exactly be an option)
Seriously woot, the first 200 items I bought arrived without any problems. half of the last 40 items I've bought seem to be shipped in the colon of an unsuspecting coke mule, by way of overland donkey, via route 66.
I already won't buy your s---ty 3rd world sweatshop shirts anymore, do I need to just hole up, and Quit shopping here at GearXS err I mean Woot?
