    This is a geek haven, a mega-store that has an impressive array of all things electronics, media, gadgets, office stuff, and much more. Shame that their games selection isn't as plentiful as before.

    I like going to frys, but they seem to move items around all the time, that makes you walk around looking for things you want. Some computer parts are expensive compared to newegg or tigerdirect.

    Best Buy times 4. Good prices. Almost too many items to select. If you want to build your own desktop computer, this is the place to buy components.

    Some of the employees are very helpful and knowledgeable, some are clueless, depends on who you get. Also, they price match amazon!

    You will find almost anything you can think of in this place. Also, check pricing (red laser app) because they price match even over the Internet.

    In Black Friday line. It's actually not insane right now. Good electronic deals and components plus a coffee shop!

    Anything that plugs into an electric outlet can be found here, for a decent price. Now, where's the VCR section, sonny?

    Hello.I'm a customer would somebody help me instead of socializing with your co-workers. Hey you guy's in the TV department, it's a great looking TV but how about you stop watching it and sell me one.

    Make sure you have documentation for an internet sale you're looking to take advantage of. They will honor it, but only if you can back it up.That notwithstanding, this is a phenomenal store!

    They seem to change their shelves once a month. Same item is never at the same place. Decent price on some items. Don't always have server related products.

    If you forget to check promo codes beforehand, ask them to check when you are paying. I did today and saved $12.00 on a $19.99 item.

    Definitely read the reviews of the products online because it's a crapshoot in the store depending on which associate sales person you get.

    Prices are fair on most things and they have a decent size movie selection of Blu-ray & DVD

    The salesmen in the cafe said they are tired of talking to people that don't buy. Hmmmmm I don't like jerky salesmen. Older heavy set salt & pepper haired man.

    It would seem that shopping at dinnertime isn't any better, as the entire cashier area was devoid of any real cashiers.

    Huge selection, store is massive. Prices are highly competitive. Don't expect the greatest service.

    Fry's Electronics in Chicago is huge. I literally got lost in all the aisles of tech stuff.

    If the price label is misprinted, they have to honor the price. I saved $20 on a UPS because of this.

    Slow service, incorrectly labeled isles, no maps, and staff doesn't know where to find stuff. Skip this place and buy what you need on Amazon.

    Unless you're buying movies or tv series, skip going here. The computer prices are higher and the customer service does not exist. It's almost impossible to get someone to actually assist you.

    Horrible customer service! You just lost a hundred dollar sale because you don't accept manufactor coupons and the coupon was on the product

    Worst customer service and store itself is a wreck. Avoid this place at all costs. I will never go back there again
