Not just you. For some reason I attribute it to the popularity, but I am not sure why. I am tired of seeing the same crap on there all the time. Woot-offs (have sucked for a while) are just a re-run of recent items.

It's been bad for a while now, it's not just you. I saw it first with shirt.woot, then normal woots started getting bad about 6 months ago and all of the woot-offs since have been shit.

Its always been like this. Do you really expect them to have 42" plasmas for $100 everyday? They've always had random junk up all the time, that's what makes woot so fucking awesome. Go away complainers.

That's not true at all. They used to consistently have items that I'd consider "purchaseable" on a fairly regular basis, at least once a week. I've seen one thing I'd buy (the Zune) in the past two or three months.

Roombas really work well, I couldn't have imagined until I saw it myself.

lol, maybe you bought a refurb or something, but my roomba has been churning my living room and kitchen for 2 years and it does a very good job. For 70 bucks I might be interested.

I think they're being hurt by their competition, there 10-15 different sites that do the same thing now...

http://www.thingfling.com/ is one of them...
