Woot not shipping to the UK pisses me off.

Todays woot is something I actually wanted. I've been subscribed to the RSS feed for a while but never actually bought anything. It's only now that I find out they don't ship outside of the USA. I couldn't even see a proper explanation as to why not. Fuckers.

    Aren't there like one million DVD players around? :P Of does this one have options others don't have? (can't seem to find them though :P)

    In this case, DVD region codes and NTSC/PAL/SECAM could be problems for those outside the US.

    In Woot's case, they probably don't want to pay international shipping or deal with higher difficulty in checking for fraud.

    Jazzman: There are but this was a good price with features that I liked. My current DVD player is about 3/4 years old and starting to make a noise when playing DVDs. I can't afford to build a Media PC so this seemed the best option.

    WallPhone: Toshibas are supposedly pretty easy to make multi-region. My parents Toshiba was made multi-region too so it worked there. Most of my DVDs are Region 1 anyway. Also; it seems that most UK TVs bought within the last 10 years do NTSC. Only the really cheap ones skimp there.

    I have a Voxson, nothing fancy but works a treat, plays all regions, VCD, MP3... it plays everything I throw at it.

    I gave up buying top-of-the-range appliances years ago, realising I was throwing money away buying the "good" stuff.

    A friend has a $700 unit, it spits out every second MP3 disc, balks at non-region-4 DVDs and when it does work, I don't see any difference in the picture or sound quality.

    Buy cheap!
