Fry's is a mess. If you know EXACTLY what you're looking for and don't mind crowds and stunningly stupid employees AND you can find one of what you want that isn't "white tagged" then it's not too bad. They're also classic for not having stuff they advertise, but at least they'll give you a rain check. I was looking at portable GPS units a while back and they had one advertised, I went in and was looking, the guy comes up and tells me that the one I'm looking at isn't that good, for just a little more you can do much better. Granted I'm looking at the lower end ($300 on sale) so it's not as though I was expecting much. But anyway the "little more" was a $449 tomtom; I'd guess he had a better profit margin for his commission. So after he finishes bad mouthing the one on sale, I look at him and say, "So you're saying this $300 unit isn't even worth that? Cool, I'll save my money." And I walked out. (FWIW I bought the unit I was looking at later at Costco for the same price, got a $30 MIR to boot, and the thing works great, the portability means I can move it from car to car (or car to motorcycle...). It's the Roadmate 2000 if anyone cares, only good for the lower 48 but that's all I wanted.
Generally speaking I buy most my tech stuff on-line, but lots of times compusa won't let you do that with ad items. It's funny I was going to buy a few things there but they pissed me off so much with the first my money's going elsewhere for all of it.
