I am really hoping woot eventually puts up a nice HD Ready LCD TV. I have been shopping around and found several for $699 or less from other stores. These are lesser known names like Akai, Makent, Norcent, etc but almost all of them come from the same manufacturer, Sampo Electronics. The sets are actually very good.
Here is an email I sent to Woot 2 weeks ago requesting an LCD TV sale.
I am curious to know if there are any plans for woot to sell any (HD Ready) LVD TV’s between 25 - 30 inches?
There are lesser known LCD brands such as Maxent, Syntax, Sampo, etc that could possibly be “wooted” out at great prices.
Here are just a few that in my opinion could be potentials.
Maxent MX-27X1 27 inch
Syntax Olevia LT26HVE 26 inch
Prima Ultra LCD30-500 30 inch (or Dish Network LCD30-500 which is the same thing)
X2Gen MV2701 27 inch
Or you could go to Sampo directly at http://www.sampoamericas.com, they actually make the maxent model.as well as others for Akai, Gateway and Viewsonic.
Hope this info helps, and I really hope to see a great LCD TV available from Woot soon!
So, if anyone else is in the mood for a smaller (IE, not a 50 or 61" Infocus) HDTV, please voice your opinions here!
