Wow. Excellent Woot Tonight. Probably one of the best i’ve seen in a while certainly better than the watches that were on here recently. (IMHO) I have been wanting another one of these for a while now. I bought two of these when they first came out and gave one away as a birthday present to my nephew(well he’s not actully my nephew but hes my sisters foster child in murdaville Georgia). THe other one had a problem and i got hit by a drunk dirver in a pickup truck on the on the way to the post office trying to get it returned [rushing to get the post office by 4:50 thats right 4:50 my post office closes at 4:50 when the ones everywhere else close at 5:00. It’s a big aggravation im always speeding and rushing to get there before they lock the door(and still serve the people already in line)] and it flipped out of the convertible and got destroyed. I was already thinking about buying another one. I’ve been searching all online and couldn’t even find a good price. But Now on Woot!!! I can’t belive it!!! Woot! Woot! Im Spending Some Loot! This has to be one of the luckiest days of my life. Oh well like I said before. Great Woot. Im off to spend some loot.

#14

They’re just throwing LCDs on everything now. How about wooting up a fishing reel with a built in LCD (o_O)


#15

i should have purchased the sushi set, this woot sux.


#16

Oooooh it’s beautiful! Oooooh I am broke :frowning:

Dammit!


#17

So many inputs! So cool!

But WTF is up with this? “The FAPT1+ takes any composite or S-video input and upconverts it to component video, just like that.”
Isn’t S-Video higher res than component? Wouldn’t you want to keep the signal in S-Video? Does it even output S-video or is it all component?
EDIT
Whoops, I’m confusing component with RCA. My bad.


#18

But, but but, it’s not refurbished!!!
Wouldn’t it be cheaper if it was???
This still smells like raw fish…


#19

Wooo, pretty. Wish I had the space and extra cash for that

Looks like this had a street price of about $3500 when released earlier this year.
