I have the 47LW5300, which I got refurbished for slightly more. It really is a good T.V. There are a TON of picture settings so you can get a great image, also there's a hack out there that lets you turn on local dimming and THX settings. Speakers are your average junk flat screen speakers.

An observation I missed when I purchased the JVC tv last week. There is no Square Trade option available for these TVs. If there was there would be a link. I also confirmed by calling Square Trade, the only refurbished TVs they warranty are ones bought at EBay unless a link is provided like there has been in past refurbished TV Woots. Lastly I also confirmed this to be true with Woot Customer Service. This is the first TV Woot I have purchase and have had 0 returns on other itmes so I am thinking it will be OK with the 90 day. Its not like I am a bar or restaraunt that is going to be running the TVs 10 to 16 hours a day. All I wanted was a TV for my xBox and viewing when my wife is watching something I don't want to watch.. In short I placed my confidence in Woot to sell a worthy product as they have in many past Woots and believe I will love my new TV. You most likely will too and saving money will add a bonus to boot.

So who actually did the refurbishing on these TV's ?
Given that in the past Woot was providing SquareTrade warranties, I wonder why they aren't with these TV's.

Go for the cheapest one. It has an LED backlight and you don't need 3D.
OK, 9 comments.

You might not 'need' 3D but if you play co-op split screen games it is kind of nice. With passive 3D like these you can either mod a pair of glasses or buy them and be able to see just your screen as full screen. (only works for co-op, doesnt work for more then 2) but still it is a reason I am getting a 3D tv!

Will Sears have more on sale than what's in their black friday ad? I am thinking I want a 42inch Panasonic LCD. I understand that brand is pretty reliable and the speakers are really good. I don't have room for a much larger one. Right now, the one I have been looking at is $450 at both Sears and Target.

Goods points.. thanks for putting in the legwork on this question. Seems odd as they almost always previously linked up with square trade though.

RE: SquareTrade Warranty

Unfortunately due to technical difficulties, we are not able to offer extended warranties on multiple item sales. We are working on a fix, but do not have an ETA as of this time.

Why rush, what's the big deal, TigerDirect has the same LG 47lv4400 TV for the same price. Disappointed, thought WOOT would have better pricing.

I have one of the later models of the LG (47LM6200) and the picture is one of the best I have ever seen.

For LG on sale on Woot the 3D Blu Ray player is a a nice addition but the lack of Wi-Fi and smart apps really detracts as LG ofers a lot of 3D content via Wi-Fi. (Disney)

This LG is a discontinued item, and quite franky I think is overpriced considering I bought a newer model with Wi-Fi, Apps and the Magic remote from Fry's for $150.00 more.

I could see where this is tempting, especially gamers who can use the 3D settings for 2 player games. (Need additional glasses)

All in all, a great TV. Unfortunatly it is over priced as I have found the best source of 3D content is streaming. The 3D BluRays are pricey.

If you do buy this you are getting a very nice TV with the 3D conversion that is pretty cool but IMHO, hold off. You can get better looking around, especially with all the sales that will be starting.

Sorry Woot, but for refurbs, these are a little bit pricey.

I have the LG 42" LV4400. Which I am assuming is comparable to the 44" LV4400. I bought it about a year ago for $540.00. I am really pleased with this tv so far.
It is quite thin, being LED. Perfect for mounting on a wall. My couch is approximately 10 feet from the television and the internal speaker volume has been loud enough for my purposes. I've never cranked it higher than halfway.
My main use is with an XBOX 360 for games, sports via ESPN, and Netflix. The TruMotion is great; I haven't experienced any lag whatsoever.
Picture clarity is excellent. Backlighting is as even enough that I don't notice light bleeding at the edges.
And, most importantly, it still works. Haven't had a single issue with my LV4400.

I got burned on a refurbished Vizio. It lasted slightly longer than the 90 day warranty. I wouldn't buy another unless I could get an extended warranty and when figured into the price it was still a good deal.

I'm not up on the 3D sets, but the 2D set here is no bargain. About 6 months ago I bought a refurbished Visio 47" from Woot for $369.00. It's a great TV and has the built in Apps for Netflix, Rhapsody, Youtube, etc. HD flatscreens, I have 3 Visios, 1 Toshiba, 1 Magnovox, and 1 Sony. I like the Visios the best.

I've owned the 42" version of the 47lv4400 for a year and a half.

If picture quality if of high importance, you may want to avoid edge-lit panels, since there will inevitably be an irregularity of brightness - I found it to be quite apparent with my panel.

The sound is akin to laptop speakers.

I've since replaced my 42lv4400 with a full-array Samsung unit and relegated the LG to kitchen duty.

Not interested. I would certainly not want to take a chance of getting a crappy Vizio TV rather than an LG.

An extended warranty on a Vizio will do you no good at all. They just say it's unrepairable and offer you a small discount on another one of their crappy TVs. Do a bit of internet research - the information on their no-repair policies isn't hard to find.

I have an LG 3D tv, can you tell me where to access 3d content via LG apps? Its a smart tv.

Also, I have a magic remote - what do I use it for?

Amazon has announced they are price-matching all of the big-box stores for TV prices; 40in Toshiba for $179 shipped free, no sales tax, and that's only one example. Why buy a refurbished when you have so many opportunities to buy a new TV online in a few days for less.

Did you actually buy said tv? Can you link to Amazon's statement about price matching so we can know their rules, in specific, about the offer?

He is not correct. From Amazon's TV price match policy:

"Time-limited sales events (such as Black Friday, "early bird" or "door buster" offers ), offers advertised as limited in time or quantity, clearance, liquidation and going-out-of business sales, and loyalty program offers are also ineligible for the Guarantee."

The tv I ordered on oct 28th didn't show up til november 9th

Also, they'll lie to you about why it's taking so long to ship. They told me it was because of hurricane sandy. Turns out, TV shipped from Texas: The state most devastated by sandy.

I'd also be a bit cautious about buying a TV from here. Quite a few people that ordered the same deal I did had their TV show up dead on arrival, or have something wrong with it in some way.

i'm gonna point out that a lot of the TVs had to be sent to our warehouse first and then we sent them to their final destinations.

i'm not gonna try to dispute/argue with anything else. but i would urge you to use your time better.
