Meghann Will Ship Her Broken DVD Player Back

The people have spoken. Meghann will ship her broken DVD player, not make a video of her smashing it. Spoilsports.

Incidentally, Woot just sent her a pre-paid shipping label and said they will issue a refund. Sweet.

At the outset, Meghann didn’t feel like shipping because the cost of shipping and the possibility of receiving yet another busted DVD player just didn’t seem worth it.

Meghann’s may have been part of a bad batch. Some other Woot!ers DVD players didn’t turn on, or they reported problems with HDMI, S-VIDEO or sound. Still others said theirs worked fine.

Hey, you takes your refurbs and you takes your chances. Mankind shall live to Woot again. — BEN POPKEN

    Referbs, looking at the percentages, come DOA less than new items.

    Woot seems to do an excellent job of customer service when something goes wrong with things they sell. Meghann should have emailed their service department as soon as there was a problem with her DVD player. She probably would have gotten the problem resolved faster than it took to post about it and run the poll.

    Kudos go to Woot for their willingness to address the problem. A full refund and a prepaid shipping label on a refurb’d item? Ooh, that kind of customer service may finally turn me into a Woot buyer.
