2012: The Year That Was

Join us, won't you, for a special Woot-Off recap of all those products that made us laugh, cry, marvel and rage over the past 365 days. This is 2012: The Year That Was.

Take a good look, loyal Wooters, because today we're recapping the most memorable products. There's that thing, remember how it made you smile? And that other thing, oh, boy! The forums sure called that a Woot-Off killer last February. Now, of course, we can look back and laugh.

And what about those twins from March? Or that elder statesman from May? Everyone had written THAT product off back in 2008, but it sure came through in the end.

Ultimately, it's your choice to applaud or catcall, but keep in mind: these products gave their very best, and they gave it for you. In these final, quiet days of 2012, let's remember the products that said "The show must go on!" and marched out, one by one, to take their chances before the crowd.

And please, ignore all those savages who say we're just emptying out our warehouse before the new year begins. They don't know a THING about artistic genius.

Back to the Woot-Off!

Top Comments are discussion forum posts we have deemed worthy of your time. Listen, we get a lot of comments, and most of the time, it's pretty forgettable stuff; but sometimes you rise to the top like butterfat in milk. We don't recommend you base your self-worth on how often we feature your comments, but we don't expressly forbid it either.
