I see them going the way of Circuit City. Kinda sad that my brother worked for CC and now works for BB.

i used to feel like i was walking to a car dealership every time i walk into best buy with the sales reps trying to make a commission in selling you something and no matter what you buy it can be a blank cd they offer you extended warranty

I usually walk in there looking like I am homeless anyway, so no sales pitch for me LOL

I agree with the article, staff at Best Buy seems more interested in selling gaming computers to seniors or unsuspecting customers. I actually prefer not to be bothered when i'm browsing as i like to try and check on my own but the last two times , we were there and we actually wanted help, the staff was more interested in selling to other people than to help us so we havent bothered going back there. . Their technical service also sucks. A friend of mine paid about $700 for an average laptop and it stopped working a few weeks after he got it. He took it to the Geek Squad and they told him he needed to leave the laptop for 3-4 weeks as it needed to be shipped away for repair, he just walked out of the store after a very heated argument with the support team. He checked online at the library and all he needed to do was to restore the computer to an earlier restore point, this apparently was too much too handle for the support team. He hasnt even visited BB since then. It's sad because they give employment to a lot of people but if they dont change their ways, it might be the end of the road for them

We have an ok bestbuy near us I suppose but I think our Walmart (which is smaller and has limited stock and few choices) makes the Best Buy look better than it really is. I can buy almost everything , if not everything, cheaper online though.

Best Buy "service" is criminal. My former (non-Polish and not personally involved) dentist brought her desktop computer in for an estimate. They charged her over $100 to tell her that her CPU was blown, and that she needed a new computer. I looked at it and found the heat sink fan detached and banging around inside the case, the heat sink full of dust, and half the RAM missing. I blew out the dust, reattached the fan, and it booted right up ran reliably but slow until she got a RAM upgrade, not from Best Buy.
