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
