Buying a hi-def t.v. is worse than going to the dentest

by stewart norrie / February 8, 2006 10:21 AM PST

Ever gone to a lush budget home theater store, every t.v. is displayed in a nice dark setting and comfortable seating , there all calbrited perfectly, The salesman treats you like a king and may even bring you a cup of coffee , And then there are us poor folks that have to shop at Frys etc, "PUKE" WILL THE FOOLS THAT RUN THESE CHAIN DUMPS EVER GET THERE ACT TOGETHER "NO" Its like going to a Cadillac dealership and look at the cars in the showroom which are covered in mud and smached up, and of cource when you see a salesperson they will flee out the back door, I dont think anyone would have a home theater if it wasen't for all the pros here at ha ha. In closing its so sad that we have to deal with these CHAIN STORE IDIOTS. I could add WALMART. yA iAM GETTING MY NEW 72" toshiba tomorrow and yes I bought it from a Store that does custom home theater installations

Stewart, You need to get a new dentist. Mine gives nitrous oxide (laughing gas). Having a tooth filled is a wonderful and fulfilling experience. I have quit brushing my teeth so I can go back sooner!

Hmmm, Well I would rather look for TVs than go to the dentist, but I understand where your comming form.
The store you buy from is the exception!!!!

There is a highend store in Hinsdale Il, that has by appointment only hours. A friend of mine and I called to see about stopping by. Before they would gives us an appointment they wanted info about our credit rating!!
Reminded me of the Steve Martin movie where he had to meet with the head waiter and go over his stock portfolio before he could get a reservation.

I know that FRY's has traing classes for the sales people, I wanted to sit in on the ones for the TV sales men but never got the chance when I was there.
When I go to store I avoid the sales people, I don't ask them questions, if they gave me wrong answer I would correct them,,,probably BIG time so I try not to do this.

There was a time at Sears when I was there and a fellow customer asked some questions the sales person couldn't answer,,, I did kinda take over,,,,. The cust. was looking a 30" CRT and after asking some questions, what size tv do you have know, the size viewing room and viewing distance, etc. I had them looking at 50~60" sets. The Sears person just stood there with mouth open, allmost clueless about what was happening.
There is a difference between an orded taker and a salsmen!!! What we run into most of the time is order takers. YES there ARE excptions,,, some are our fellow members, but sadly so few. John
