@kllangellier: While I'm not the closest follower of the woot-offs, if I understand you correctly, it's probably a high-priced item, such as PCs or TVs, that have really poor specs. Especially if it's not that great of a price to start with. We want deals on top shelf items, or at least middle of the shelf!

@gewoodworth: Ah, ok. Well, there was once this item that even Woot said in the write-up wasn't great, but what should you expect, it's dirt cheap. It was some sort of smoothie maker type thing on kids.woot. And while I know they are often sarcastic, I don't think they were entirely joking. I mean, it was a children's item that was expected to slaughter fruit and ice... And since it could be sold as a toy, it mustn't be THAT dangerous. and if it wasn't that dangerous, then it probably didn't actually work, ya know what I mean? :-/

What is a wootoff killer?
Eager to see new items, Woot members deem any product that sells very slowly as a "Wootoff killer". To help speed things up Woot members are known to buy these items just to move the wootoff along.

@birniei: Thanks for that! And so then yes, it was that smoothie maker thing for kids, because it was on there FOREVER. I ended up just going to sleep because I got tired of waiting. Obviously I didn't buy one though.

@birniei: Tivo remotes. They lasted around 4 hours at .99 each.

It used to be this tacky oversized travel bag that was just not worth the price no matter how much people said it was durable or roomy. It was flat out ugly! Never failed that we would see that bag in every wootoff and it would sit there for an hour. Need to pee or cook dinner-wait for the ugly bag.
