I actually just bought one of these before noticing this thread. I used the $8 off code as well + a cashback website.
I just received my LG Optimus 3D from Cowboom about a week ago and I really dislike it for some reason. It's just the feel of it, and I think that is only has 512mb of RAM. I'm hoping this will be a bit better. More pixel density too.
It works with some custom roms. I believe that the roms with Motorola Blur still have webtop. Those are all gingerbread based though. None of the ICS/JB Roms have webtop. Those roms will only mirror the display of the phone when you plug the phone into the laptop dock.
I used this phone for a little over a year, and I gotta say that for $90 I don't think you can do better. With the stock rom it may have a tiny bit of lag (although hardly noticeable to most users), but you can easily go to XDADevelopers (dot com) and install a custom rom. I used ePinter's CM10 rom for a few months, and it was incredibly fast and smooth, and probably improved the battery a little as well.
Most custom roms will take away the ability to use the lapdock, although you can always roll back to stock to get that functionality back. I think some roms may still leave the lapdock functionality in, but you should check the individual rom you're looking at to make sure.
