Best Buy Complaint - CSR's In Erie, PA Are Liars
ERIE, PENNSYLVANIA -- Been shopping for a flat screen TV. First went to Circuit City then to Best Buy. I don't know a lot about these TV's but was informed by 2 friends what to expect. I was told by both friends that HD flat screens will work with my basic cable just fine. Just bring it home and hook it up. Well... the Best Buy salesman fed me a line of crap. He stated that the TV wouldn't work without a blue ray box, which cost $400. He said that I would only get 12 channels if I was lucky without the blue ray, the picture would be terrible and unwatchable. He also said that without the blue ray I wouldn't be able to watch DVDs. He had myself and my fiance so confused it wasn't funny.
I kept thinking of what my friends had told me. I looked at my fiance and told him that we should go grab something to eat and think about it. We left the store and called my one friend. He couldn't believe what we were told by Best Buy. So... we headed back across the street to Circuit City and talked again to the salesman we originally spoke to. I told him what Best Buy had said and he said they are a bunch of liars and work off commission. Needless to say, we purchased the Panasonic HD flat screen 1080 from Circuit City for $50 cheaper than Best Buy. We got it home and hooked it up... low and behold we have all 97 cable channels and it works beautifully.
Imagine that... LOL. I will never set foot in Best Buy again. They are a bunch of crooks. I ever need anything I will go to Circuit City where they are honest.
