Why I go to Fry's by ucblockhead (4.00 / 2) #1 Mon Jun 12, 2006 at 07:15:41 AM EST
Because when I go to BestBuy, I get harassed about extended warantees and when I go to CompUSA, I can never find a cashier to take my money.

And at Fry's by coryking (4.00 / 1) #5 Mon Jun 12, 2006 at 07:42:18 AM EST
I can trade all that in for a 50/50 shot at getting what I drove 20 miles for.  Say, for example, a 25-foot chunk of generic, non-monster-"OMG-HYPER-DIGITAL-NITROGEN-COOLED-URANIUM-DIPPED-JITTER-PROOF"-AV cable.  Maybe that and those cute little RCA male-2-male extenders.

You can fool me once...

They all suck, which is why I tend to use mail order.

My thoughts as well.  Unless it's a dead power supply that can't wait, why take the chance?

... Thus the impetus for my rant.  If us computer nerds aren't using 'em, who is?

Fry's by The Fool (4.00 / 1) #2 Mon Jun 12, 2006 at 07:20:28 AM EST
They stay in business by being Disneyland for geeks.

I should know--I go there all the time.

There is indeed a mysterious alure about the whole place, isn't there?

Look, this isn't funny any more by Rogerborg (4.00 / 1) #3 Mon Jun 12, 2006 at 07:29:03 AM EST
First the Lunix hippies start shrugging their shoulders and admitting "Meh, it sucks", and now you're asking "I went to Fry's... how do they stay in business?"  If you're going to put the bat in my hand and then bobble your giant novelty toy sized head in front of it, it really does take all the sport out of it.

Extended warranties, to answer your rhetorical question.  I wonder what their plans are for putting independent local repairers out of business.  That's got to be the wet dream.

You are right!  It is the extended warranties!

... I forgot about those.

Power supplies by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #9 Mon Jun 12, 2006 at 09:25:22 AM EST
Ding! We have a winner.

Any power supply that costs less than 75 bucks is a piece of shit!

I would reccomend Antec and Enermax, Coolermaster or Vantec.  I'm told that Thermaltake is good as well, but the first two are the best.
