i expect someone to say buckyballs at some point :)

I never did get any woot lights, or leakfrogs. I haz a sad.

@lichme: I think I still have an extra set of Woot! lights. If you want them pm me your addy and if I can find them, they are yours. Tested and work 100% NIB. :)

I'm hoping one day they will have a Dyson Vacuum cleaner.

leakfrogs are the one that i do not see regularly anymore and wish I would have grabbed when I had the chance

A clean main page that doesn't prompt me to sign in every time I see it.

I agree with the Sansas 100%!

I missed out on the Sansa Clips... I thought they'd be around forever, and missed the chance. I've bought 2 from Amazon at higher prices, and would buy a couple if they ever resurfaced here...

@xarous: That's kinda awesome of you. As soon as I find out how to PM you without seeing a post from you, I'll do that. Unless you wanna initiate one to me here and I can respond

I don't recall it being an item from the old days, but in the March WootOff I bought Dark and Milk Fleur de Sel Chocolate Covered Caramels and have been watching for them to appear again ever since. I think they were $23 during the WootOff, but the company website charges about $45 and I just can't make myself spend that much money on candy.

Woot Gods, can you PLEASE offer these again?!?! Please! Please! Pretty please!!

I miss the Razer m100 Pro|Solutions Protone In-Ear Earphone that Woot used to sell about three years ago. Loved those In-Ear Earphones.

vote-for6vote-against

I wasn't around for the older goodies. I do however think the leakfrogs are pretty awesome, and I also think the woot lights are the best invention ever!

vote-for4vote-against

I second the Razer earphones!

vote-for7vote-against

The vacuum sealers for food. They stopped saling those right before our last one broke. I also have to agree with the woot lights. My now 4 y.o. loved the set we had to death.

Maybe one day Woot will once again sell roomba and roomba accessories. They only appear once, maybe twice a decade on here.

I'm tired of Amazon oops I mean Woot putting up same or very similar items over and over. Last month it was the internet streaming devices. Marketed when Amazon did the push for Prime membership streaming movies and now it is Dyson. 2 items I don't need but see over and over. Amazon oops again I mean Woot has a lot if inventory why do we have to see the same ones over and over. The original Woot had those items we felt we needed. If I need my Dyson replaced I know I can simply wait for the next one to appear on Woot and do some comparison shopping from past Woot deals. Not what I believe the original Woot was for. I miss the "get the deal right now" that Woot originally did. I have no regret from missed Woot deals like I did in the past.

See Woot? Everybody wants you to get back together with Sansa. You were the cutest couple. Get rid of that hussy from Cupertino.

The "mystery" brand speaker sets.

The B&D hedge trimmers. I swear they were in about 4 woot-offs and a bunch of regular woots. I now want them and they haven't shown back up in months!
I have sadz.

I miss the "real" monkeys; I only caught monkey fever after woot switched to the hard-nosed kind.

Oh wait: REAL WOOT MONKEYS ARE BACK! And there are seven of them throwing a party in my living room!

I miss crapola that was fun. I once got a BOC that had 85 Texas key chains a couple of semi-working Sansas (pulled 200 songs off of one) and some other useless, but FUN crap. Most of the bags contain crappy crap these days. Oh, and they are ALL THE SAME...

When was the last time we saw a letter (I honestly haven't been following the crap threads the last several times, but I haven't heard of any)?

vote-for8vote-against

I was thinking about posting about the Sansas last night. I need another one, the one I got in 2005, which has had a broken screen since 2006 but still works great on shuffle, is finally nearing the end of its life. Now I must find another site for refurb Sansas.

vote-for8vote-against

I came here to say SANSAS. And now I have. God, I wish they still had Sansas.

@dissonance: Fun crap = @cowboydann's DOC. Which reminds me, I should start piecing together some more donations ... at the very least, I have more California packing peanuts. :) It goes with Texas bags of air and Washington bubble wrap.

Leak Frogs are the best! Also miss the Sansa's, but mine is still going strong!

@beegle: First time you said anything in 6 years!
@wantabewooter: You too!

I've not been around all that long, but from what I've read, I would like to be able to buy Sansas & (Yellow) Woot Lights, neither of which have been offered since I started (or that I've noticed). I was able to get some Leakfrogs and have not regretted the purchase.

Also, the Fleur de Sel Caramels really are excellent, but like @belyndag, I cannot justify the $45 that they cost when not on Woot. Please, sir(s and madames), can I have some more?

vote-for6vote-against

Just like everyone else, Sansas.

But also those Maximo IM-490 or whatever earbuds that used to pop up all the time. Those things were friggin outstanding.

vote-for8vote-against

@baqui63: Thank goodness! Another Fleur de Sel Caramel fan! I hoarded mine and rationed out one per day to ME (no one else knew I had them). I felt so evilly decadent eating those things. Next time I click "in for 3!" That is, if they ever come up again.

And, as someone else noted, I haven't seen anyone else post about getting a letter in a BOC. Is that no longer done?

Speaking of BOCs, I scored one from their Twitter feed on MONDAY and it was delivered YESTERDAY according to FedEx. My first BOC in since 2010 and I'm out of state! I called my nephew last night and asked him to rescue my package and move it to a safe area for me, but GEEZ! When did BOCs start shipping and arriving so quickly?

Wish me luck, folks. Perhaps I will break that "nobody is getting letters anymore" cycle!

Go Pro Hero HD… or even better yet Go Pro Hero HD 2, snagged a couple before xmas last year, and figured they would show up some time again.. nothing so far… Wish I had grabbed 3 more… sigh.
Like others , it seems to be a lot of the same crud over and over again… I don't even look every day anymore… just not the same ole woot since the sell off to amazon.

Kai Tan Ren Knives - Shun Ken's poor cousin. I love my set and have been hoping to grab a starter set for a friend as a gift. But they aren't showing up. grumble

I think you can still find Sansas on NewEgg and TigerD

vote-for2vote-against

@belyndag: @baqui63: The Fleur de Sel Caramels show up in most woot-offs on wine.woot's page. Yes, they are awesome! I also have to give another +1 for Sansas.

vote-for1vote-against

I still need a Leak Frog.

vote-for1vote-against

Prediction: the caramels and the fancy toffee will both show up at least once before/during the winter holiday season. (If Woot offered them between May and September, wouldn't Fedex be delivering boxes of chocolate-caramel soup?)

vote-for3vote-against

Tell me again about the Sansas....I remember seeing them just beyond a pair flashing lights. Or maybe that was just an AA shirt I saw. I'm not sure...it all seems fuzzy now. As if a part of some bygone era...

vote-for4vote-against

Certainly the leakfrogs and Sansa's, both of which I have and use! Also, though, I miss the quirky stuff. I have a USB AM/FM radio shaped like a microphone that was so odd and neat looking that I just had to have it. At one time, Woot would put up several of these types of items during the Wootoff and it was always great fun seeing them pop up. Now, it is mostly $50 plus items, and the same cheaper items over and over (like the Air Picks - enough already!). Also, rapid fire runs of items seem to be getting less frequent during Wootoffs. Not an 'item' no longer offered per se, but definitely a big part of the fun!

@mlsapack: I miss the weird stuff too! I'm far more likely to buy 72 glow sticks than home electronics (I know, bad example, but I bought them three times, and I am not a woot-off junkie).
