We were very happy to get one of these at Best Buy when they came down in price. It has a beautiful display and was a lot of fun to play with. However, we have had bad luck with the charging adapter, however. We've replaced it twice and once again it has died. So now we have a device that can't be reliably charged and we are more than a little frustrated. I think this may be a known issue, but I don't have time at the moment to research it. Be warned!

I saw the 10" 32 GB Asus Transformers on sale for $220 the other day on another 1-item a day sale site. It was manufacturer refurbished and seemed like a great price. But I would not buy from that site because they have no forum or any way to leave any kind of feedback or comments. That is one of the most important things about Woot.

If you dual booth WebOS and Android(in my case CyanogenMOD) there was some issues with the wi-fi driver using more power when booted in to Android vs WebOS. It eventually caused my 16GB model to never power up again dual to not accepting a charge, even after more than a week of "trickle" charging.(Google "HP Touchpad won't charge" or "won't power up") They might have fixed it by now, but figured I would let people know.
With that said I am still contemplating buy this since it was a great tablet otherwise.
I had a deep-discharge problem like that for a bit, it wouldn't charge up either on the cradle or with the cord enough to boot up for a bit. I left it on overnight and it finally booted. I was scared it would be dead or I would have to crack the case. Still have yet to get Android on it; is Netflix working yet?
Thanks to up-to-the-minute tracking, I don't track my package so much as stalk it.
