A few weeks ago Walmart.com was selling this same TV for $299 and sold out pretty quick. I am sure Walmart was making money on the deal and Woot/Amazon is making a lot more at 500 bucks! Not seeing the amazing deals we used to see before Amazon took over. Too bad!!

Another perfectly-timed sale from w00t! I needed a new TV stand, and this was fairly priced compared to similar models. As a plus, it somewhat matches my TV.

1. Can i directly connect this to internet cable and see youtube?
2. Does this package includes 3d glasses?




No it's not a Smart TV, so no internet apps. Mines hooked up to my PS3 and my Desktop (via a long ass HDMI), so it wasn't a deal breaker for me.

I purchased this model new in January, love the TV. It's Passive/Cinema 3D, so the glasses are like, a couple bucks, they're the same ones you use at the movie theaters, not the active glasses being sold separately here. I actually just grabbed 4 new pairs after seeing Dredd in 3D.

It converts 2d-3d, works great for sports and animation, everything else is hit or miss. 3D Blu Rays are impressive. It's got a lot of features, some not listed in the manual (additional ways to tweak it for PQ that can be unlocked with a code, a hold over from more expensive models that probably use the same processor).

It said right in the specs:
802.11 wireless connects you directly to the internet...
Which is WHY I pushed the button on this one. So, yep, I do think it does connect you to the Net. HOPE so anyway.
And I too am awaiting delivery status email. WANT want want this one...FAST, please!

Wow, this is a sloooow shipper. I hope it will arrive soon. I mounted a different LED-lit flat screen to the ceiling over my bed, but I want 120 Hz!

i guess you mean five business days?

Can anyone suggest reasonably priced but adequate 3D passive glasses for the 42LW5300?

Very likely, but please note it can take up to five business days from when you order! Since you're still within that time frame, hang in there!

PSA: I pinged service@woot and found that mine shipped on Friday (I ordered Monday) and will be delivered today, but my account still says "awaiting shipping" and I never got a notification email.

I also ordered one on Monday (42 vizio) I emailed CS and got "Unfortunately, we have not yet received the tracking information for this order from our vendor. Hopefully we should have the tracking details to send you soon. We apologize for the inconvenience."
I hope mine comes today..

Mine arrived today, but my status still says 'still awaiting shipping information'. I'm glad my roommate was there to pick it up otherwise they would have just left it out there and I'm pretty sure I wouldn't have seen it when I got back. I'll come back and post on here later if everything works okay, first time ordering a TV online, a little worried about how they handled it :/. I got the 47" LG LCD 3D tv for $500.

I'm anxious to hear from how your tv came out. I'm waiting on the same TV.

Already sent the email. REEEALLY hoping there's a replacement that can be sent. I do have to hand it to Woot service. They're great and helpful folk.

Did you attach the pics? The CS email system will just gobble the attachments. If you can upload the pics to imgur.com or tinypic.com and then email them the links, that would help.

Can do. Thanks!
Do I need to re-compose the email or just send links for pics?

We got our black TV stand this afternoon, I helped my husband put it together and it looks really nice, now to get a bigger TV.

Mine also came on the day my accounty finally said "Shipped". Nice surprise that it came quickly....
That said: EXTREMELY DISAPPOINTED! The copy says:
"The latest 802.11n Wireless Networking is built-in making connecting to the Internet quick and easy
Easily connect to the Internet and stream movies and TV shows, listen to music and get the latest news, sports and weather."

ONLY connects to the Vizio Yahoo widgets. CANNOT connect you to the Internet. Which is WHY I wooted this. I have Dish Online, and need to be able to access this from the website. It is not a "widget". So... I wouldn't call this a "Smart TV" as stated. I will put this in another place, tho, and use it as a regular tv. But disappointed, as I needed (and still need) an internet-connected tv. NOT a WIDGET-CONNECTED tv!
But the picture's great, sounds okay, and although the Netflix widget is off & on... It's a nice big screen... It is worth $400, but I'd pay more to get exactly what I want. I blame myself, I should have done a lot more research on "internet connected" for this model. (Anyone wanna buy a re-reused 42" 3-D Vizio? ) --<:-)
