According to the Amazon page for the printer on this Woot deal, Brother has an updated version, the HLL2380DW. This printer, with the same (or better) specs, is available brand-new from Staples for the same price as Woot has on the refurbished older model, plus free shipping, AND the Square Deal 3-year protection plan through Staples is ~1/2 the cost of the Square Deal 1-year protection plan from Woot. Of course, Staples does have a limit of only 2 per customer, vs. 3 for Woot. And Staples will charge sales tax-- oh wait, so does Woot.
So to recap, newer vs. older version, brand-new vs. factory-refurb, free vs. $5 shipping, cheaper vs. … well… not cheaper protection plan.
Where’s the deal, Woot!?!?
Oh shit! Burn, thanks for the research Bakon!
