They must mean marketing staff and limited obsolescing selection.

I go into Best Buy to waste time when I'm bored and waiting for something. It's only good for those that don't like waiting for their product, have to see it in person or they won't buy, or just don't want to deal with warranty, returns, and exchanges through the mail.

Quite a few hot chicks working at the Best Buy near me as well .

True. They should leave you alone until you ask them for help.

You shouldn't be buying electronics if you can't match two color coded cables or maybe take out your coloring book from 2nd grade and start there before walking into an electronics store.

I went their once to buy a wireless router, they had a total of 3 to choose from and the cheapest was 45$ for a .11g. If I wanted .11n I would of had to chucked out around 100$ for it.. I was able to get a .11n router on newegg for under 30$

Then they wouldn't make any money. Just like another member mentioned they have a lot more expenses than online retailers. Online retailers basically have a couple warehouses that they ship items from with limited staff. Best Buy has multiple stores with thousands of employees.

They can and will NEVER compete with online retailers, don't you understand that? It's just not possible. They would go out of business even faster.

I hope they close down and Newegg takes over the retail sector. I like the orange and white theme more than BB's blue and yellow.

When a retail store stocks things like Audioquest HDMI cables for $3000 you know they're going down the wrong road.

Yeah, and that's the reason I make the trip to Fry's sometimes, I can use it right away. Sometimes their prices are cheaper than Newegg without a sale.

Lower prices benefit the consumer. The consumer is you and me. Understand? Oh and BB sells a whole helluva lot more stuff than computer parts and some cables. I don't know why you kids keep bringing that up. And before you call me a "fanboy", I don't shop at BB.
There's not much competition when your prices are higher than everyone elses.

Everyone root for the demise of Best Buy!
Shhhhh!

My local store is nothing short of exemplary. I went in with a price match for an Xbox 360 controller. Without even checking the local stock at TigerDirect, they matched $50 to $37. At the same time I picked up a number of excellent Blu-rays for < $10, one of which was incorrectly marked on the shelf so I picked it up for $6.99 ($10 off with their "wrong price" discount).

Me either! I can't wait till all those people lose their jobs! Gives me stiffy just thinking about all those losers getting fired! I wish I could see the faces of their loved ones when they tell them they were fired!

Don't forget Best Buy's terrible return policy.
Best Buy Employee: "Can I see your receipt?"
Me: "I don't have it."
Best Buy Employee: "Nothing I can do for you, f*** off."
