Tiger Direct has these for $629 refurb, so not a bad price from Woot. I know there isn't much love in the reviews for this TV, but I was very happy with the previous year's model of this TV. Only reason I don't still have it is a remodel and a spiffy new 80" Sharp.

A refurb & no SmartTV? At least it's 1080p/120hz, ok looking bezel, back lit and energy star compliant.

If you want a nightmare without going to sleep buy this TV. I bought an LG TV a few months ago and it was damaged because of improper packing. I thought this issue was resolved but it's not. Go ahead buy it, it's only 11 days till Halloween.

I'm sorry for your experience. There are sometimes a few casualties in shipment. Our records show though that only a very small percentage of the TVs have shipping damage. And our CS will work with you to make it right.

In addition, we do work with our vendors to make improve packaging and shipping methods.

So true. I bought this tv off sellout a few weeks ago, and thankfully it showed up without any damage, but the packaging is terrible! a couple of foam pieces holding the TV in place, and a bad photocopy of the warranty. I suppose I should add that I am very happy with it though.

Can we get a model number or, you know, ANY kind of unique identifyer for this tv? I'd like to look it up online before I buy.

Or, can someone tell me here: How is this for video games? Latency, picture, sound? What about Blu-Rays?

Thanks.

As for the higher up posts, I can't find it being sold at sellout.woot in the past. When it has sold, it was also $499.99 from what I can tell.

"Always $5. Can't beat that for the big stuff."

Also, Woot shipping is only $5 for the entire order even if you get two or three.

Hmmm, don't the newest Ivy Bridge chipsets support three monitors? I doubt I can sell the family CFO on that, though.

As another user said, "Always $5." What they mean is this: everything you buy from woot, every time, will be $5 to ship.

Except...when it comes broken. Like one of the other folks up above I bought this and received it with a big ol' hole in the screen. Not saying don't get it, but be aware that you get $5 worth of packaging on something with a pretty large, fragile surface.

Boom!!! It's back. Great deal, great tv. I play video games like call of dookie and other fps, and the tv handles it no problem. I'm also a monster nfl fan....maaaaaaan. This tv is clear crisp and most importantly, baller. BUYER BEWARE: YOU NEED AN EXTERNAL AUDIO SYSTEM!!! The speakers on the tv are thinner than Nicole richie in 2003.

I bought this from woot about 8 weeks ago and it arrived with a broken screen. Woot apologized for not having any replacements, and I purchased the same model somewhere else. A day or two later, it was on the site again. Then on sellout woot. And here it is again. To woot's credit, the return and refund was fast and easy...but I wish I had been offered a replacement since there appear to be plenty of these!

Someone above mentioned external speakers. I suspect all slim TVs have the crappy speaker issue. I already have my HT speaker setup that I use for movies and sports, but many times I only want to have the TV on to save power and not piss off the neighbors. Could someone recommend a pair of CHEAP, simple and small speakers for my TV?

Thanks!

I bought this exact TV off of Woot for this price just over a month ago and it has been nothing short of perfect. The picture is fantastic. The sound isn't the greatest I've heard from a TV, but we also don't have an additional speaker set or anything and still have no real complaints about it. If you're really into entertainment technology and all that, you may want to get some speakers and stuff to complement this TV.

If you're an average guy like me who just wants a good picture, this TV is a steal. Again, no complaints on the sound, just noting that those who are really, really into technology might have some complaints with the sound.

I think it's great. Best deal I've purchased on Woot!

AMEN! I received a woot refurb LCD...and returned because of the horrible packaging- apparently damaged in shipping or ??? The vendor used for that woot apparently does not make any attempt to package contents for FEDEX ground/USPS delivery...mine had only 4 pieces of foam (1 on each corner) to "protect" a 47" flatscreen and the original cardboard box turned inside out for shipment. It was returned for refund.

I love Woot! but I must tell you that the 47LV4400 was a total disaster for LG & Amazon.

I was going to buy one last year but they had so many problems and complaints on the Amazon page that the model was removed.

Clearly these refurbished 47LV4400's are the ones returned.

I would seriously stay away from this! I opted for a new model from LG and am quite happy!

I have been looking for a good deal in a LED this size and when I saw this I thought, today may be the day! But, even with your glowing review (which I have no reason to doubt) all the horror stories on shoddy packaging and damaged goods has me scared off now. Until I start seeing some great reviews on packaging, I will continue to pass.

Woot has a 90 Day warranty for a reason. I've had problems with shipping before and Woot customer service as never failed to provide quick and easy service. That's one of the great parts about deal hunting on Woot, you don't have to worry about the shipping, just your time and your bottom line.


Done and done! ;)

Just pick up a basic set of stereo computer speakers according to your budget. Make sure that they are not USB speakers, then you just plug them into the headphone or audio jack on the TV, and voila, cheap and easy audio upgrade!

Most likely it was true that we didn't have replacements at that time. Subsequent sales have been from new orders placed with our vendor. Customer Service doesn't have access to info for future sales and can't make replacements from them. Sorry for the problems. I hope you'll give us another chance.

Debating between snatching this now or waiting for black Friday. I dont need it now. I wanted to stay within this price range.

I need a 46 inch, probably using a 360 for Netflix and maybe boxee if I don't get a smart tv.

I believe you can also cancel your order through the "Your Account" page. Click "Your Account" and select the "View Order Details" from the "Purchased List" on the left hand side.
There SHOULD be an option to cancel your order.

According to CNET you should never buy a refurbished TV. Here is a link to the CNET article: http://reviews.cnet.com/8301-33153_7-57509549-10391733/three-tech-items-you-should-never-buy-refurbished/
