Who has had any issues with a refurb? I get them all the time, they often have MORE QC checks than something just off the new line...

Not me. I buy refurbs whenever it's an option. Right off the top of my head, I can think of 8 electronics items currently in use in my house that are refurbs, including my Premiere, and there are likely more that I've just forgotten are refurb'd.

I buy quite a few refubs on Woot such as the computer I'm typing on now. About the only things I won't buy refurb are large TVs and items used in food preparation.

There might be some merit in getting the XL4 at this price. But I would think paying $199 to get the new Roamio 4 tuner DVR and a Stream is a better deal than paying $149 for a Premiere 4 & a Stream.

And underwear... Never buy used underwear...

I've seen new devices break and old last forever. Refurb means "it was working when we put it in the box". Most new items don't have that assurance...

Funny! I actually listed refurbed underwear in my post but deleted it before submitting because I've never seen refurbed underwear on Woot.
