Through their colleagues at Woot, Amazon is offering as today’s Gold Box Deal of the Day Sony’s Dash, which is similar to the Chumby, for only $74.99. This is 63% off their normal price of $199.99. But if you look further, $199.99 is the retail price. You can buy it direct from Amazon for $99.95, so you’re really only saving 25%/$25. And if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you won’t get your free 2-day shipping since the $74.99 deal is through Woot. And lastly, keep in mind that Sony is introducing an updated version of this product sometime this summer that will have a built-in battery and come in candy colors reminiscent of the old iMacs.
While I have no experience with this product, I have been looking for a bedside device to play Pandora Radio and Netflix. For less than $75 and free shipping, I figure it’s worth the try. I just hope that since it is being sold through Woot that I can return it if it sucks horribly. Hopefully if that’s the case, Amazon will intervene with their awesome customer service. I’ll be sure to post a review in a few weeks.
