OK, took the bait and bought one. I guess it's finally time to upgrade from the 32" monstrosity that consumes a significant portion of my living room.

A few years ago I bought a 1080p Toshiba 40RV525U and was very happy with it ... until I connected my laptop to it to function as my media center. My laptop has VGA out and my TV was intentionally designed to only display VGA signals at a maximum 1366x768 resolution. Intentionally as in "on purpose". I've no idea what lawyer was behind this absurd limitation but I'd like to verify that this tv doesn't have a similar limitation.

My girlfriend bought this tv a few weeks ago. So far so good. Nice picture, good sound, nice response time if you're playing video games. Lots of connections. We're happy with it.

Ahh a price drop..too little too late Im afraid. Was cheaper at Newegg, free shipping, longer warranty, cheaper extended warranty so I bought from there.
Remember the days when you were sure woot would be the cheapest around?

We're $10 less, only $5 shipping, same length warranty...and...we're a little cuter ;)

You werent cheaper when you the offer was put up - maybe now but not beating your competition at the start and only responding when someone else found it cheaper and posted it? I think you were also showing a 30 day warranty at the start too? Anyway, you were more expensive when I ordered mine

you were cuter but then sold your soul ;o)

I do like that you are finally offering American shirts again though on shirt.woot (although Ive missed some ones I would have bought) - Off topic, but thought Id add it

Wow, the electronics boss hates hump day but luckily, he likes you guys.

Price is lowered to $229.99.

You know the drill, if you already bought it, you'll be funded the difference automagically.



Cheers!

What? American shirts are back? I never bought many but stopped paying attention when the shirts switched over. Time to start stumbling back over there...

So, even after all of the Woot TV horror stories, at this price, I had to pull the trigger to replace my 32" CRT monster that is giving me lip.

Now, seeing as how this is going to end up happening sooner or later, I may as well start it sooner. So, here goes:

Is it shipped yet? Is it shipped yet? Is it shipped yet?

You ordered this Wednesday! lol
Usually it takes up to 5 business days from the sale to ship (in most instances less than that).

If you're concerned with your order please feel free to email into Woot Member Services at support@woot.com and they'll be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.

So, as it turns out, I got a hit with the reference number at Fedex.com. Mine rolled Thursday, estimated delivery is Tuesday.

One other thing I am excited about, is that it is coming through Phoenix. There is a freight line that runs from Phoenix to Houston (or Ft Worth/Dallas, cant remember which). That freight, transfers in Las Cruces usually.

The benefit, I could have this thing sooner than that. This is exciting!

Let the anticipation frenzy begin!

Wow, I was right, it's at my local facility as of 7:16am.

I hope it shows. I hope it shows. I hope it shows.

And.... Delivered!

I am stoked! Retail packaging (no brown box here), and the only real molestation is a chunk out of the cardboard, likely where it hooked on a corner somewhere. No concerns.

Not unpacked yet, I have to wait for help to move out 150lbs of TV out of the way. I will update accordingly. Super excited!

This is being drop shipped directly from the vendor so please allow 3-5 business days for order processing and shipping out.

That said, I just checked and it looks like these have already shipped and we're just waiting on the tracking information.

You can use FedEx's “Track by Reference” feature to get tracking info using your order number. Your order number is on your order details which you can get via Stuff You Bought. Leave the Account Number blank. Enter your order number in the reference box. Next, select your country and enter your zip code. Click TRACK and voilà, you may have tracking info.

We use a variety of shipping methods such as FedEx, UPS, USPS, drop shipping (direct from vendor) and Fulfillment by Amazon (FBA)*. Shipping methods will vary from sale to sale and can also vary based on how far you live from the shipping point. Typically, FBA ships in 1-2 business days. Drop Ship in 3-5 business days.

You can see the shipping estimate on the sales detail page below the title or on your order page.

*When using FBA, we instruct our vendor to deliver the product to one or more fulfillment centers from which the product will then be shipped. Please note that we are not part of the Prime or Super Saver Shipping program.

...and there was much rejoicing. I am seeing tomorrow as the delivery date for my order. 7 days to receive a 28.6 lbs item for $5? That works for me. :-)

Looks like mine's coming on Thursday. Now off to check when that new TV stand will be in. The opening on my current one is about 1/2" too narrow to fit this TV (too bad, because I really like my current stand).

I was sent a message yesterday that mine was shipping, and it arrived today. Original packaging, I could tell it had been used at least as far as the setup wizard not coming up, but wow, beautiful picture, decent sound for it coming out of the bottom. Happy so far...may get another one when they're back on Woot again!

Grrr... DOA. Actually, DOA+2hrs - It turned on for about 2 hours then the screen scrambled and became unresponsive. Now it won't even turn on.

RMA approved - will be getting a refund. No replacement was offered.

Woot has been responsive, and quick to RMA and refund, so they deserve kudos for that. Yet, it would have been nice to get the TV and not have the hassle of the DOA/RMA shuffle.

Sigh. HDMI1 and HDMI3 ports are not functional and HDMI2 is distorted with no sound. Was really looking forward to this one. Went to the support page and awaiting response.

I have turned in 2 call tags and have not heard anything back. My tv looks as though it was damaged in shipping. It looks great when not turned on, but when plugged in the picture is a bright white with black. I would like to get another one, are there any available????

Yowch. Have you checked your spam folders? CS is very good at responding and we do end up there quite a bit.

I'll ping them for you from this end too though.

I got it and dropped it off at my local fedex location. You guys sadly do not have any replacements, but I found an alternative for anyone else that received a defective unit. Newegg doesn't have hardly any info about the tv and its an LED LCD, not just LCD, so google the part number to get more info.

Here is the tv:

Hi ashli143,

Woot CS here!

Looks like your TV is scheduled to arrive on 5/30. It can take between 3-5 business days for the refund to post.

Let us know at support@woot.com if you need anything further. =)
