We understand the need and judicial use of electricity now a day. It becomes very important to use electric resource wisely and carefully for future. We heard mostly about shortage of electricity in a country, electricity not coming to each and every second to every home why? Its all because electricity becomes very important to every ones life, no work complete without presence of electric. If we all start to use and save electricity efficiently, it helps to great extent and serves the double purpose of helping and stop global warming and saving a lot of money over time.

This place is huge! The set-up is unique with its multiple entrances and different stores and for some a bit confusing or exhausting but for me it works just fine. Us New Yorkers are lucky to have such a huge electronic store in our city considering rent prices and all.

On my last trip I was looking for a small camcorder to shoot video with. I wanted something small that could fit in my pocket but at the same time I didn??t want to have to sacrifice quality for size. The gentleman at the counter immediately suggested the Flip Video Camera. He explained how it is super easy to work with if you want to shoot, upload and share with friends on the Internet. He sold me when he used the word ??simple?. Once I said I was interested he took out a few different models and helped me pick the one that was best for me. I went with the Flip Mino HD and I love it to death.

The folks at J & R really know their stuff when it comes to electronics. I suggest you visit them if you are looking for anything ranging from a dryer to a new iPod. This place has it all.

There are definitely more pros than cons to this interesting layout of a store. Obviously a con is the way it??s set up. Going in and out of one store to another can be exhausting and confusing. It can actually be a pro too if you just have to go to one place and you know exactly where to get it from. On top of that, I find the selection they have on many different items to be enormous. The people in each department really seem to know their department well and their prices are very reasonable.

Whenever I??m in this area I find myself stopping by and half the time I have no reason to go in there but somehow end up with something. This store could be dangerous to some degree. Last time I stopped in just to kill some time, yet I ended up buying a handful of DVDS. Not only that, you could also have a lot of fun trying out instruments and many other products. They also have tons of music you could buy, including vinyl. Everything seems to be inexpensive compared to other huge stores.

Whether you are in this area or not this is one store you should definitely check out. The people will help you, they have a vast amount of merchandise, and their prices are practical. There are way too many pros that won??t stop me from coming back to this place.

I have just received a Eureka vacuum cleaner from J&R. This is my second purchase from J&R and as previous shipment it was well packed. I know J&R didn't manufacture the item but they gave an excellent price, free shipping and it arrived exactly as promised. There were other dealers who offered the same item but when I saw J&R on the list, it was a no-brainer. And had there been a problem with my purchase I rest assured it would be taken care of promptly.

Before anyone asks, I have not connection to J&R except as a satisfied customer. Kudos to them.

Bought a refurb IBM/Lenovo computer from these guys. I spoke to salesman online who was not knowledgable about warranty info or he was dishonest. Anyway, I received the computer and it was junk. It was re-configured inside and had no cooling mechanism. The 1-yr manuf. warrany I was told I had was not valid and neither was the $20 extended warranty for the product. The good news...J&R paid to have it shipped back and refunded every single dime to me. No more re-furbs from them (or anyone maybe), but they do seem to be reputable and honest when there is a legit problem. I would purchase from them again.

I purchased a Sony Plasma 50" HDTV as well as a home Theater Receiver and speakers. Both the sales person (Julio) and the sales managers (Joe and Nate) had given me an absolute amazing service. They were fair and stood behind their promises. I had some trouble with the HDTV and they sent me a new one as replacement after I tried to work around the problem. Overall - great pricing, attentive customer service and really really great people.

HIGHLY RECOMENDED

PROS: Competative Pricing, Price Match, Customer Service is Awesome
CONS: Shipping costs are a bit on the high side.

One of the best known and nationally known New York City electronics and music store. I've always had positive experiences when coming to this store. Staff is usually knowledgeable and helpful. And they usually have sale items in stock. And they carry alot of import CD's and videos (ie. Anime). They've got an amazing selection of electronics if you want an alternative to Best Buy, Circuit City, etc.

This is one of those stores that no matter what kind of electronics you looking for there are people there to answer your questions. When I was searching for a mini dv camera I went into j and r and was able to see many of the diff. options and have a salesperson explain to me what all the features were. A lot better than searching online and just reading reviews. Their music department has a tremendous selection and there computer department is great.

I live in downtown Manhattan my whole life so I've shopped at J&R a couple of times. My most recent purchase was a laptop. The day I went to buy the laptop I saw the price had increased. They had it for cheaper the previous week. I also had a competitor's ad that was also cheaper. After I spoke to a saleswoman there and asked if I could purchase it with last's weeks price. She said she cant and gave me an attitude. Then I spoke with her manager and only then I was able to get it at that price.

It's a nice place to go and browse though I suggest you check out the prices online first. The staff is always available to answer your questions. You must check your bag at the door. They have a huge selection of DVDs, CDs, and they still sell vinyls and cassette tapes. For all your electronic needs, J & R has it. They even have a section for books and personal accessories.

This local business is in the heart of downtown Manhattan, is my favorite, I go there to browse and check the sales almost every day, they sell from computers to CD players, name brands, for very low prices, most of the time they have rebates, they treat their customer well and they try to help them in all they can.

J & R Music and Computer World has really come far. I remember when they were only about two store fronts (one selling music and the other selling electronics). Now they practically own the whole block. They are split into more sections then just music and comuter. Now they have Camera section, computers section, music section, home applicance section, and an outlet section. It is fanatasic! The employee are very helpful and are more then willing to answer any question you might have.

can only describe our personal experience with J&R, and it was very good. We knew exactly what we wanted down to manufacturer and model numbers, and found the articles on J&R's web site without hassle. Although they displayed MSRP, there was a button to request the current price. Clicking on this button and entering our email address provided us with an instant price quote via email. We were quite surprised as the price we were given matched, or came close to the lowest price we found on the web. We ended up paying $50 more than the lowest price on the web for 5 home theater style speakers (some were the same price, others slightly higher). However, this extra $50 provided the full OEM warranty as J&R is an authorized reseller of the manufacturer, whereas the lowest priced reseller was not authorized. Rather than chance warranty issues, we felt the extra $50 was worthwhile. Besides, it was still $273 less than a local store which also has a web site, and which would not match the price despite their claims of price matching. As for the denial of warranty if not purchased from an authorized reseller, that is an issue for the OEM, not J&R. Our purchased items were shipped the next day, we ordered on a Sunday. The boxes arrived in a timely fashion, well cushioned inside an outer shipping carton, the inner OEM boxes not having a scratch despite UPS's ground handling. They were also completely sealed and brand new, not recycled products.

The only negative side of the transaction was with J&R's telephone sales staff. The email with the price quote suggested calling if you wished to discuss the price. As we did see a lower price we did call. One sales rep said he would match the price, but insisted that he would charge shipping despite the web site's claim of free shipping on the articles purchased. He insisted that floorstanding speakers do not ship for free.

I have to say it. They own the block. They really do. They stretch around nearly the whole block, split into the camera sect, Electronics/Clearance sect, Music Sect, Appliances Sect, Computers Sect. It's really wonderful to have everything that is entertainment and electronics in one area. Each sect has different levels. It has a whole bunch of stock. They even have Telescopes! It's a crazy world out there.

J & R has everything electronic. They have several stores that take up the block. Each store is separated by category. They have one store that just sells music and dvd's. They even have a ticketmaster booth downstairs. Another store that sells computer and its accessories. They even recently open a separate outlet store for there sale items on clearance. The staff is very informative, helpful and are always eager to answer any questions. If you ever have any questions J & R is a good pace to start.

If you want the best selection in computers, you should definitely come here. I love the display of laptops out for people to try before they buy. They also carry a full line of palm pdas as well. If you're looking for any electronic gadget, they'll have it. I'm very satisfied with the laptop that I've gotten here. I went it and they rang me up in less than 10 minutes. Everything was great!

This really is a great store for electronics. They have music, DVDs, electronics, computers, mp3 players, and much more. This is located in City Hall so of course it attracts a lot of tourists everyday. They are not a chain store, but has the reputation and prices of one. Their prices are usually comparable to those of Best Buy and Circuit City.

They're a very honest store too. If a product is defective, you should have no problem returning it.

J&R Music And Computer World is down the block from city hall and is a sight to behold. It's not one store under one roof but a collection of stores pieced togehter out of whatever has come up for rent on the block. Up a flight of stairs in one building for CD's, go outside and down three doors for comouters. Silly but on some level it works. The selection is amazing. Everything form computers, phones, CDs, DVDs, cameras, etc for as far as the eye can see. Check the circular usually found in a pile by the door on your way in for this weeks sales as you might stumble unto something you were looking for very cheap. The service is haphazard, some of the staff really know there stuff others aren't sure of what day of the week it is. Definitely worth a look see if you are seeking out any sort of electronic item.

PROS: Massive selection
CONS: Confusing layout, some staff members not very good.

J & R is a great store that has a huge selection of music, computers, peripherals, and much more. Their prices are typically slightly better than many of the huge nationwide chainstores. The salesmen are usually quite helpful and knowledgeable, especially since there are usually more than one in each large department. This is a great difference from large chainstores, which rarely have good service.

What can you say about this mammoth tech supermarket. They are not in one building but strung out down almost a whole city block occupying space in many buildings which is odd. Want a computer go into one building. Want a CD three doors down. Some of there sales people know what they are talking about some are clueless. They will find ways to cut you a deal if you a persistent enough. I've gotten 5-20% knocked off just by asking for it. Always check there sales circulars when you enter as sometimes you can get a great deal especially when the next level of tech has just come out. For example when Pentium 5 comes out Pentium 4 will be cheaper here faster than most computer places.

PROS: An amazing array of goods
CONS: spotty saleshelp
