    I bought 2 Evo View 4G tablets from them (1saleaday.com) before Xmas 2011 and it all went perfectly. No complaints.

    I bought a Thrive from Woot as well ... First time buyer from them. They (Woot) seem to be mostly reliable with an occasional unhappy "wooter".

    My Thrive arrived today (2/8/2012).

    It is a refurb, and looks new but has 2 tiny scratch-like marks on the screen that bug me because I know they are there.

    I plan on putting a Zagg screen protector on it, that will probably fully hide the tiny screen marks.

    I'm anal, I still want a refurb to look brand-new. :)

    Have not powered it up yet, just been on the charger.

    It took about 7 days to reach me. I'm in Texas and Woot is in Texas, so that probably caused it to reach me soonest given the delivery method.

    No problems with the Thrive except the 2 tiny screen marks, and I don't notice those when using the tablet.

    I'm using the Thrive now to post this message.

    BTW I was wrong about my refurb Thrive screen having 2 small scratches out-of-the-box.

    I took a screen cleaner "wipe" and gave the Thrive screen a gentle wipe down, and what I thought were scratches disappeared. :)

    So anal me is now thoroughly happy w/ my 100% new in appearance Thrive.

    P.S. What Thrive pictures do you want? :)

    A known issue for refurbished Thrives purchased from Woot is that when you use the Thrive "Service Center" to perform a system update, the update fails.

    The link below points to a thread in thriveforums.org where you can re-flash the refurb Thrive firmware to stock system version that *will* allow further updates from Service Center.

    I had to do all the steps called out, and now my Thrive is at standard Android 3.2.1 (from Toshiba) using the updates from Service Center after re-flashing the "refurb" system firmware.

    Ok, I got my Tablet on Saturday and have been using it pretty nicely. I spent all day Saturday on it and almost all day Sunday on it. It's got a screen protector on it, and a different colored back is on its way as well! I ordered the silver one, and if I don't like it I can send it back :p

    Anyways, if you guys want pics, lemme know and I'll post some.

    Congrats! If you like, post some pics!

    Maybe there should be a "Show Us Your Thrive" pictures thread.

    I have literally lost hours of sleep playing with the Thrive!
