    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

    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!

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

    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.

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

    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.

    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!
