    Know EXACTLY what you need or else the employees in the computer section will talk down to you.

    Don't bother asking for help. No one seems to know anything about any of the stuff they sell. Make sure you know EXACTLY what you want. Decent prices. Read more

    Always check the ads when you enter to find some great deals.

    Common sense tells u to research before u buy anything. You should never assume employees know what they're talking about. On that note, I've talked to.numerous employees who knew their stuff. Always

    Fry's, where you don't have to be a rocket scientist and the employees scatter like roaches at the sight of a customer

    Poor customer service and support for their products!

    70 registers and 5 cashiers

    When you're here with your boyfriend and he's buying tons of expensive shit, be sure to squeeze in a video game you really want (or keyboard!). ”it's only $40!” ;) works every time.

    This place is a mess.

    Will Uhlig in the computer Dept is not customer service oriented, smug, and doesn't care if anyone buys anything. Part of the long term Fry's problem in Austin.

    Tony Lee · December 4, 2010
  • Evan C.

    Great selection and price. But know what you need because half the staff have no idea what's up. Asked 5 different people for help, only 1 gave me helpful advice and he didn't even work that dept.

    Evan Castillo · August 29, 2010

    Nerds love this place!

    If you know what you are talking about, go talk down to the computer dept employees. Its good for them to get a taste of their own medicine.

    Dave Birt · February 22, 2011
  • Chris G.

    Make sure to look out for the Austin Statesman ads! Many a time dvds are 100 for 13 bucks! Customer service sucks but prices are worth the sacrifice!

    Fry's Electronics is also a great stop for table top games as well.

    They will no longer be carrying stuff for HTC EVO 4G

  • Toren S.

    They don't really need to check your receipt on the way out. Just say "no thanks, I'm fine" and keep walking.

    Toren Smith · April 26, 2011
  • Tony L.

    More expensive than Amazon plus 15% restock fee? LOL!

    Tony Lee · March 1, 2011

    amazing, love this store

    Jordan Sims · December 27, 2010
  • Gabe P.

    If they would let me live here and let me play with all the electronics, I would never leave!! This is a toy store for big kids!!

    Gabe P · November 27, 2010
  • T B.

    Be sure to the print on the entrance of the store..a Clear rep NOT a Fry's employee made sure to let it be known there is "no photography in Fry's stores"....what the hell?'

    T B · June 27, 2010
  • Mike B.

    Couldn't find what I needed, so I went online and ordered for in-store pickup. Let Fry's do the searching through their isles!

    Rather quiet at 5:30 pm on a Tuesday. If you know what you need, you could be outta here in 5 minutes.

    Spenser Chen · July 9, 2013
  • Nate W.

    This is the last time I say this... I'm never going to frys again! No one there knows anything! Rather shop at best buy.... that's saying a lot right there!

  • Bill K.

    Watched a sales guy lie to a customer about Apple iPads. I corrected him and he got quiet. Don't LIE to your customers!!

    If you're looking for computer stuff, cell phone stuff, to big ticket items....they have it!

    Ridiculously helpful and knowledgeable staff, wide selection, low prices for a brick and mortar store.

  • Deonka R.

    Try the latte in the cafe. It's delicious !

  • Sarah P.

    Still here and they still havent figured out why they dont have my items held.

    Sarah Peterson · May 30, 2012
  • Sarah P.

    Had three people give me wrong information and no one seems to know where things go when you call ahead to have them held. Thanks a lot.

    What good is an electronic musician without electronics? This is where I got the laptop in my current live setup, several hard drives, and countless cables

    Try on some GUNNARS! The advanced technology eyewear is designed to reduce eyestrain while playing games, using computers, or watching TV.

  • Jessica C.

    Wow, their customer service has gotten really bad!! So many employees working but they don't know anything about or its the super techy nerds working that have no people skills. Just go online & buy.

    Jessica Cutillas · January 24, 2012
  • KeepR R.

    Bring a buddy who knows computers. Knowledgeable employees are hit-n-miss.

    KeepR RUnusual · January 15, 2012
  • Luke N.

    When building your PC, come here after checking online, sometimes its comparably priced with the POM of an easy return if something isn't working

    Luke Newton · January 13, 2012
  • justin m.

    Makes me miss Microcenter

    justin mcadams · November 4, 2011
  • Russell M.

    Be sure to check competitor pricing and take advantage of their guarantee before you checkout. I just saved 22% by pointing out had a lower price.

    Russell McDowell · August 11, 2011

    It's simply amazing :D
