Why would they advertise a sale time for these if their app and website obviously can't handle the traffic??

Somehow they thought they would benefit from this.

App broke at 5 on the dot, server errors until sold out. Never saw that one coming. Trash app, scam deal.

Got one! The app crashed after I hit place order (I didn’t even look at the price...just kept clicking). It got stuck on the pinwheel of doom but said it was checking inventory and payment. Checked my email and I got a confirmation. I’m actually shocked that I was able to get one.

A full year later, companies still can't figure out they need to prepare for traffic. Fantastic incompetence.

At $49.99, I can't help but wonder if these are chinese knockoffs or at the very least refurbished units. Why wouldn't they be the full $59.99 MSRP?

Woot doesn't sell stuff for MSRP. They just ran this as a "promo" to get people to download their app and give it a shot...

 

I have a feeling it backfired from all of the people - the vast majority - who got burned by this "deal."
