I like this deal, but I’m scared of the limited 90 day warranty. Are there any reputable 3rd party warranties that won’t cost an arm and a leg?
Also, who refurbished these units? LG, Woot, some random third party?
Hello there. Woot isn’t a refurbishing company. These were refurbished by one of our vendors.
Is there any expectation that these should be generally “like new”?
It should be Grade A refurbished but it could have some light scratches or blemishes.
“Refurbished” covers everything from buyers’ remorse returns and products whose defects have been repaired by the pros to damaged packaging and discontinued items. If you can accept their checkered past, refurbs have a lot of love to give.
Do you know if the original manufacturer 1 year warranty is still in effect for these units?
Been looking and thinking
No, the manufacturer warranty would not be in effect.
I currently have this model in my house, but it is my 4th TV; I sent 3 of them back. 2 of them had dead pixels on them (more than 2-3 and 1 had 2 next to each other), and the other one had a small scratch on the front of the screen from the factory.
Did you order them from Woot? Or you just mean in general?
