from what i've heard best buy sells common things like HDMI cables for ridiculous prices and the thing most people are complaining about is how their employees have no idea what they're talking about.veLa said:
Best Buy is pretty good. Go in the store, see the products you can get on NewEgg in reality. Then compare the prices in your smart phone. If NewEgg is more (including shipping), buy it right there in the Best Buy store. If Best Buy is more, see if you can buy the display model for 15% off. If it's still not cheaper than NewEgg then just go with NewEgg.
This is how I got my 22" monitor for a price even NewEgg couldn't beat. I wanted an ASUS 22" monitor from NewEgg so I went to Best Buy after I was buying groceries just to check if they had it there. They did in fact have the same monitor, but they were out of stock besides the display model. They also lost the display model's VGA cable and power cable, and I already had DVI/HDMI cables and a power cable, so that was another 10% off. So I got a total of 25% off my 22" monitor because I went to Best Buy just to check out if they had the same one from NewEgg.
Don't hate on Best Buy, they're a solid store.
Well, like the childen used to say, "almost only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.fFYI: shopping online is almost always cheaper.
Perhaps this is so, but keep in mind that Newegg employees aren't allowed to give any technical assistance whatsoever, period.From what I hear the problem at bestbuy is the management won't let the employees give there honest opinion. They are there to sell not to help.
