Great TV. Bought at Costco over a year ago. Neighbors with Sony Bravo were jealous when they saw the picture.

The 240Hz refresh rate is as fast as it gets-- and at this price, it’s a steal!..

Why couldn’t woot wait the two to three months I need to rebuild my bankroll after reacquiring employment just this last week? This is exactly what I’m saving up for. Grr!

Save one for me, Woot!

Cnet Reviews

I must say- nice lightning shot.

This TV is an outright beast… plain and simple.

I have the 47" and I’d say the picture is on par with my parents Sharp Aquos I NEVER use the smooth motion though

Beast = Good or Bad? Not clear on your meaning here.

Cool pic, moonsheep. Hong Kong?

Beast = Good

Always.

Wondering about the quality long-term. It’s a refurb, and that scares me a little (having bought refurb stereos before and having been very disappointed with those)…

Anyone able to put my mind at ease?

I have two LG 42" TVs one unit is 240hz and the other is 120hz(42LH55 & 42LH50). I prefer the 120hz. The 240hz adds depth to the scene but makes the objects/characters on the screen look like a south park episode. Im weird though, I prefer NES over my PS3.

This is what cnet has to say about What You Need To Know about 240Hz LCD TVs…

I’ve had 2 Phillips LCD-TVs I’ve bought off WOOT that were refurbs. Both are around a year old and haven’t had a single issue to date. YMMV, but I’m pretty confident in most refurbs at this point.

Available for 699 from Tiger,Comp and CC online,also refurbished. Plus around $20 shipping.

Some other reviews aren’t so spiffy:

I think I’ll pass…
