Are we being too subtle? Do you understand what we're selling in this sale?

I got the Philips 40" last Black Friday for $200 (as a refurb) and it's been working great, definitely a great TV for the price, but you MUST get external speakers, the built-ins are worse than what you'll find on most TVs and unacceptable even for people who usually don't care about audio quality. At $280 it's probably worth spending a little more to go with a Samsung.

The DISH Tailgater package with the VIP 211 HD receivers a really good deal. I have the setup I purchased from DISH a few years ago and love it! (cost at that time around $700) We take it with us in RV and the setup is as easy as setting the tailgater on the ground, running the one wire from the receiver to the Tailgater, hook up the HDMI cable to the TV and you are done. We also take this with us to our Gulf coast Florida condo and set it on the balcony. If you have a beach condo most HOA's will not allow the metal dish on the balcony or building. The tailgater does not draw any attention to it's small size. Just remember, you have to have an unobstructed view of the South West sky for the Tailgater to work with the Dish Network satellites.

Who did the refurbishing on the Samsung UN40EH5300 40" 1080p 120 CMR LED Smart TV with Built-in Wi-Fi? Manufacturer or third party?

Thx!

I can't seen to locate if the TVs come with any sort of warrenty (Even like a 30/60/90 day) I see that you can get one with SquareTrade for 80 dollars or so, but I'd hesitate to do so unless there was no support at all for it otherwise. (Other than the 21 day return policy on woot)

Look at the bottom of the first tab (not specs). The ones I've looked at have a Woot 90 day limited warranty link.

So how does Woot ship these larger TV's? UPS/Fedex ground, or a freight carrier? Is it the type where you can schedule a delivery?

50" and larger ships via freight carrier. Make sure you give a physical address and that your phone number is correct in your account. The carrier will call you to arrange a delivery time.

Is the Tailgator really needed? 1 Cellphone + Dish Anywhere App + Video cable from cellphone to TV = same thing.

I believe the Dish Anywhere App only streams what you have recorded on your DVR at home, not all the programing and channels you are subscribed to. Am I wrong?

I own the 60 inch Visio TV and it's a GREAT deal, especially at this price! (I paid about 100 bucks more from Amazon in March)

Read this article!!! Before you buy
these are not true 120Hz. They use SPS to upsell these t.v.'s. The deals are still good don't get me wrong but do your research before you buy.

Exactly do your research a few of these are true 120Hz TV's it takes a second to copy and paste the brand/model number and find results that show true Hz

How much does the tailgater month to month payment structure work?

Are there penalties for starting and stopping?

Very interested in this...

from what i saw, pay as you go plans range from $45 to $75. you can shut off service at any time with no fees.

if you are interested i'd buy this up, this price is half of what DISH sells it for.

Wow, the 39" Samsung was $285 new on Amazon last week. I had BB pricematch and bought one.

FYI, the mediaplay USB actually supports 1080p mkv files. I was blown away.

Its a good TV for the price, but again, Woot wants more for a refurb than it was brand new last week.

We have a fairly new Samsung Plasma screen, and my in-laws have a fairly new Samsung LED. Both sets have a great picture, but the "smart" apps leave a LOT to be desired. The ones we use (Netflix, Amazon Instant Video) are unstable and frequently require that you unplug the television and reboot. The internet browser that they supply is also completely worthless. Picture is great, but plan on adding external devices of some sort to supply the content...just like we had to do 5 years ago!

I purchased the 32" Phillips refurbished. It arrived in the box with the wrong power cord, and when I hooked it up finally, neither of the HDMI ports worked. Highly disappointed.

Sorry for the problem. Looks like the one you bought has a 90-day Philips warranty. You can contact them or the company they designate - check any paperwork included with the TV.

If all else fails, email support@woot.com for assistance. Include your Woot username and order number for faster service.

Anybody received their Vizios yet? Mine still says "Shipping Now" which it has said since I ordered it on May 17th. What does "NOW" mean?

Have you tried 'Track by Reference' on UPS or FedEx's websites? You can use your order number as the Reference ID, sometimes you can find your tracking that way. If by Tuesday you don't get any info, send your order info to support@woot.com for assistance.

Woot is an Amazon Company Who does not care about customer service.Once novel website will not get another order from me after Vizio snafu. How many of us were taken?

Still waiting myself. Never got a notice of shipment, but by checking the site daily I found that it has shipped – though still not due till next week. Hard to believe Woot is owned by Amazon, whose delivery is so fast – whereas Woot seems to be delivering via a slow boat from China…

I got my Samsung 55" last Wednesday, so 9 business days total, not bad for a Woot deal on a giant TV.

Sadly it is broken, so now I have to deal with those logistics. Ultimate gaming room stays unfinished.

My credit card was charged a month ago still no shipment customer service where are you ? Jeff Bezos would not run a company like this. I promoted Woot to frends but sadly no more.I caution anyone odering

I ordered the 47" TV on May 20th, and received it this Tuesday, June 3rd. 9 business days if you take off the holiday, so that's not terrible. However, I wasn't able to look at the TV until Wednesday to find that it was broken. I have contacted Woot Support twice (once through their form, and once through direct email) and have yet to receive a reply. I really don't want to waste 500 bucks on damaged goods because they take forever and only give you a 21 day window.
