    Ditto what Jason said. I've ordered quite a few items from woot, and I've never had ANY sort of problem. (Here's hoping I didn't just jinx myself by posting that! LOL!)

    THE HOLY CRAP COMMANDMENTS v2.0:
    I. Thou shalt expect nothing beyond one bag of some kind and your chosen quantity of crappy items (which should be THREE).
    II. Thou shalt not whine and complain when some people’s crap turns out to be nicer than yours.
    III. Thou shalt take a moment to consider whether you might be better off just not buying this crap.
    IV. Thou shalt not order just one crap and blame it on anything but your own inattention.
    V. To paraphrase Stephen Stills, shalt thou not get the crap you want, want the crap you get.
    Warranty: you wish

    Bose TriPort Headphones
    $119.99

    "Serious music lovers know: the teeny-weeny earbud look is out; the deejay / shooting range look is in.
    Like every brand name with any notoriety, Bose has hatas. Check our forums for schmoes who suppose if it’s Bose, then it blows. In our humble opinion, such schmoes suppose erroneously. You won’t find phones like these at this price anywhere else. Probably.

    There's a whole message board at Woot.com for people to "strut their crap". I'm not (yet) a Woot customer, but I found it hilarious to read through and see what everyone got. Generally everyone had the same 2-3 items, then there would be one completely off-the-wall item, some of which had me ROTFL.
    And one person did get one of the InFocus 50” Ultra-Thin DLP High Definition TV's as part of his box, as well. The TV wouldn't fit in the box, so Woot included a handwritten note saying, "Sorry, your 3rd crap wouldn't fit in this box," then delivered it separately. Not bad for $8.
    Some other people got some nice items, too. BUT...you do need to be aware that the crap is really crap for the most part (used CDR's, broken CD-RW drives, cheap/broken items). This must be cheaper than carting the stuff to a landfill. [​IMG]

    I saw a model of this TV, 61MD10, at a local dealer and it looked fantastic! They had it "On Sale" for $6,000.

    If I had even the slightest need for this I'd pull the trigger on that woot in a heart beat. InFocus are selling these at a huge loss in order to clear their iventory. When they first built this marvelous light engine last year and developed this model with RCA, it was supposed to be their introduction into the RPTV market.

    Unfortunately the design was so complex and costly to build, they had to sell them with an MSRP of ~$10,000 in order to try and turn a decent profit, but they failed to market the product well with custom installers, and it was too pricey for the general consumer market, and thus they never sold. Now InFocus is calling it quits on RPTV's for now, and this is why this model is available now at ridiculously lower prices from than earlier this.

    If you are on the fence you should definetely try and find one locally to look at. I suspect it will be worth the effort.

    But missed the one day sale(s), WOOT has a hidden link so that you can order one at any time! Well... until they completely sell out of course.
