Most of my experiences have been fair to good; however 10wks plus on service with no update calls. I have done all the communicating, calls and in store checks. This was on a 45day old unit even after purchasing an extended warranty. Come on guys,"That Bites."

I went into Fry's a few weeks ago and bought an LCD display for my computer because the price was the lowest. The supposed "expert" didn't know how contrast ratios really work and tried to sell me a lower ratio than I asked for. I knew what I wanted because I know what I intend to do with the display...after all I have been working with computers since 1983! Nonetheless, the Fry's "expert" continued to sell me a product that had different specs and a higher price.

To make matters worse, when I finally bought the monitor I had intended to buy, I arrived home to find that the display did not work! There was no problem with the specs or the price...just the blank screen. I called Fry's and talked to an 18-year old who was demeaning and couldn't troubleshoot his way out of a paper sack before finally driving to the store, where I was told I would have to resolve my warranty issues with Samsung (not Fry's, who had sold the thing)!

After two days of arguing with managers and so on I finally found a use for their monitor. Has anyone ever seen what a 12 gauge shot gun does to a Samsung 19" LCD? Sure, it was a waste of money...so was buying from Fry's.

Frys is the greatest thing that has ever happened to the technology nut. The staff is friendly and they have everything and anything that you may need and everything else that you dont need. If Frys doesnt have it, it doesnt exist.

This place is humongous compared to other big name stores. What I like most about this is the selection. There are so many things you can get from this store! I wish they had as more employees to help out if I had a question. One guy answered my one of my questions and left to run to another customer without making sure I was okay with everything.

I go to Fry's mostly for the Music selection and DVD's. The place is huge and there's something for everyone. The service desk/return counter is a pain but once you're past that the rest is all good. They have bargain bins (my favorite) with some hard to find music and movies. The parking lot is huge and I lose my car alot but it's better than Circuit City!

Fry's is a great place to shop for everything from batteries - computer systems. However, they don't stock enough of the sale items. I always find a video game or DVD at a great price. I say it's right up there with Best Buy but lower prices! Their check out process is weird and I feel like I'm standing in line forever but for lower prices I deal with it.

PROS: Low Prices - Good Selection of DVD's, CD's & Video Games
CONS: Not enough stocked sale ad items

Frys electronics is the king of electronic stores, they have everything from consumer electronics to appliance, even toys for children! This is a wonderful one stop shop, their advertisements are incredible, and the selection is impressive. If youre looking to save time and have a great selection all in a Retail store this is the place for you!

A while back I needed an external hard drive and my husband said he saw one in the Fry's ad that after rebate would have been right about what I wanted to pay. Well alright, we live less than 2 miles away so off we went, ad in hand. We've shopped there before and knew right where to go. I flipped the ad around and asked the young man at the desk where I could find the one I wanted. "We don't have any left." Period, end of sentence, end of discussion. No offer of a rain check no clue when they might get them in. AND oh by the way, the rebate is only good for two more days so even if you get one someday in the future, you wont get the rebate. But the part that aggravated me was that the ad came out the same day we went. This was reminiscent of previous visits to this store and I remembered why I quit shopping there. We ended up paying a net $10 more for the same product at another store. They had a whole shelf full and the salesman knew right where they were. I will probably shop at Frys again, but Im not going to worry about getting anything out of their ad. If it is on sale, Ill go elsewhere.

PROS: Large selection of every day items
CONS: Rarely stocks enough of sale items.
