@bsalusa: so are you going to be watching the superbowl from the two you got in your BOC? Or did one not work? Did you get it fixed?

They get sent back to the manufacturer who checks them over, cleans them up and sells them as refurbished. These refurbished TVs will turn up on some manufacturers discount sites, Woot!* or other random stores.

Some online stores like Amazon(http://www.warehousedeals.com/) or Newegg will take returned products such as these and if they are still cosmetically flawless, they check them over to make sure they still function and sell them as open box.

*Note: I have no idea how Woot! procures the products they do, so I'm not sure where on the chain Woot! is.
