$4, $5, $0, who gives a crap? Most of us can just add two numbers together to get the real cost. Everything on woot is $5 shipping and clearly that's not what it costs.

The major issue here is that it's a refurb unit.

I'm 100% shocked that books still exist in today's day and age. I thought they'd be out by now. They make up like 1% of today's entertainment and unless you're 60 or older, stray away from books and start emersing yourself with real entertainment.

You may want to note in the title that this is "recertified" and not new.

And it only comes with a 30 day "Midnight Box" warranty :-k.

Meh, thanks for the post OP, but I'm getting the feeling that this isn't on the up and up.

Which is my point. Woot deals are all legit and they only charge $5.

I'll vouch for midnightbox being a legit company. I've bought a few things from them since '06. They're a daily deal site. Nothing wrong with them, but again: this is a recertified item with little more than a DOA warranty.

If it was closer to the $100 mark I'd buy it just as a BD player.

I bought from them twice. MidnightBox has gotten progressively more disappointing through the years.

The first time was back in '05-06 for some Logitech PS2 wireless controllers. One controller was dysfunctional, but they replaced it and paid for shipping both ways. I think it was $5 and free shipping per controller, which was excellent.

The second purchase was a "grab bag" of stuff in 2010 and was a collaboration with Collector's Proof. I bought two "grab bags" for $8 total and received shit. Utterly worthless shit. A PC modem from the 90's, The Incredibly Hulk issue #300-something, and two of those paper airplane things that come in one piece wrapped in plastic that you have to break apart. $8 for that shit.

Might be worth it if you want a low firmware and got the money to see what's up.

Not a bad deal, except a crappy site and its refurbed. I got a 2nd ps3 for $100 off a friend of a friend who needed fast money. 160gig slim with 2 controllers and MW3 for $100, then trades in MW3 cause I have it for $38 at BB. They assured me its not stolen and I trust them but it still seems too good to be true. But if u are in the.market for a used ps3 u may as well check craigslist first as people always need fast money in this economy and your likely to find a cheaper ps3 with games

Hey, maybe in 20-30 years, the comic would appreciate in value and you would have gotten your $8 back. Assuming it's in the highest-grade condition. And assuming you didn't throw it out, which you probably did.
