    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.

    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

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

    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.

    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!

    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.

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

    Frys price matches online retailers like Amazon now. Good to know if you don't want to wait for shipping!

    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.

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

    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

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

    You don't need to stop and show them receipt and what you bought. They can't do anything to you if you refuse. I just hold up my receipt and what I bought in my hands as I walk out.

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

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

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

    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?'

    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!!

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

    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.

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

    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

    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!

    Prepare to want to self-immolate from the second you arrive until about 4 hours after visiting.

    Store is disappointing, dirty, shelves are empty, and no one seems to want to help customers. Great place for grab and go, if its on the shelf.

    Save your $ and go to Microcenter online store or to the Houston or Dallas location. Contrary to what Frys may tell you all over, they will NOT price match or even try. Saved 300 by going else where.

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

    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.

    Worst shopping experience. After telling them not to continue with the transaction that already took 45mins they proceeded to make me wait another 30 minutes. Ignoring me! Never again!

    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!
