I bought a Vizio here, and after 90days it died… It ended up in my garbage can… A real disappointment!

Time to check out the product page for the Vizio 32" and good reviews (3.8 out of 5.0) over at walmart.com

Sony 40" Review

[MOD EDIT] Slightly different model.

pretty sure thats not the same model 2 hdmi and no wifi on the one woot has

Anyone have experience with the
Hisense brand? Need a cheap TV for the bedroom and 40 inches and four hdmi ports for only $219 seems to good to pass up.

Worked on many a Hisense. As long as you don’t mind considering it “disposable” have at it. Otherwise, I’d go for the Sony.

Really struggling with the whole refurbished thing
If it sucks once, is it doomed to suck forever?

Some things I feel can be refurbished, TV’s do not have a great track record.

I bought a Sceptre (I know not a name brand) it is a 40" 1080 for under 300 dollars… BRAND NEW. It looks better than my dads 2 year old Vizio 42" 1080… by a long shot.

Refurbished is good for computing (I have had good luck) and simple devices, but TV’s… for some reason. Just doesn’t work.

I bought a 32" model Hisense from Frys a few years back for the bedroom. After a month I put my 24" Toshiba back in the bedroom. The Hisense picture was absolutely horrid.

PERSONALLY, I bought a refurb 40" Hisense from woot almost a year and a half ago. I was sketch, but the price was good and I pulled the trigger. I have the same TV in my living room right now. I haven’t had any trouble with it. I have a Roku 3, DVD player (I konw), and HD cable box all hooked up, and I’ve used it as a larger display for my laptop on occasion.

My ONE tiny gripe, and this is tiny because it doesn’t have any bearing on the picture or sound, is that I can see a little bit of light leakage in the bottom corners, but only when there’s black screen. It’s 100% unnoticeable when a picture covers that area of the screen.

But, as always, YMMV. Hope that helps!

REFURBS! Love 'em or hate 'em. Mostly I’ve had good luck with them. HOWEVER, Woot recently offered refurb BIG Jawbone Jamboxes (they’re on offer again this weekend). These were NOT refurbed by Jawbone. Mine arrived with a couple of serious dings on the front grille (top AND bottom). I informed Woot - their response was STONY SILENCE. I am REALLY surprised that they’re offering these again. If the refurber can’t be bothered to fix obvious cosmetic problems you have to wonder what (i anything) they’ve done to the internals. CAVEAT EMPTOR.

Alright woot, I hope you have a solid vendor for this sale. I just got my sister to join and buy 2 TVs as her first purchase. crosses fingers*

Would also like to throw in that she called Square Trade to ask them if they could apply a coupon code to the warranty for the TVs and they told her that they don’t warranty refurb items. I told her to call back and tell them it was through woot, with the widget (which they DO cover) and they essentially told her she was full of it. So uh, ST reps missed out on 2 warranties and a new customer. smh

Confirmed, SquareTrade DOES cover these when the warranty is purchased via the widget. Misinformed rep on their end. Sorry for the aggravation. :confused:

I was reading this and I too bought the Hisense from here and a third Roku 3 and…

I got distracted because it’s been two months since I bought the Roku and hadn’t set it up…

Oh yeah, TV still works great. Roku works too, but I just had to install:

>An auto HDMI switcher (ran out of HDMI inputs)
>A Gigabit switch because the WiFi signal gets lost in a corner of our house
>A Long-Range Ethernet Ext because that corner of the house is not hard-wired.

6 HDMI cables, a UPS for power bricks, 4 Cat 5 cables, an HDMI Switch and 3 hours later…I have the Hisense TV, Wii, BluRay, 7.1 Stereo, Roku 3, PS2, Cable DVR, and XBox all working like a champ.

Which means the TV is doomed to crap out on me.

I can get the Hisense for the same price and Free shipping at sears. Common Woot, yours supposed to have the best deals, otherwise what’s the point of shopping your website!


Well after reading the feedback I’m going to buy straight from Vizio. They have a 39", with only 2 HDMI though, for $309 new. The other two TV’s in my house are Vizio and I they’ve been rock solid for years now.
