I like Fry's they seem to be more of a store where you can buy more hardware and you can just think of them as a hardware warehouse whereas BestBuy is a electronic store. Like the 7-11 of technology. They have a little bit of everything

Best Buy. They have decent customer service, and their prices and inventory are pretty good. I get most of my items from Best Buy.

Seriously though, if you have to buy stuff in Meatspace, whichever is closer.

I like Best Buy. Although I have never been to a fry's Electronics because of the small area I live in. Best Buy has great service, pretty good prices, and an amazing selection of geeky electronics. It is one of my favorite stores.

FRYS! They have a sale pretty much every weekend and they have everything there! I have never experienced their customer service so I wouldn't know.

we need a best buy in the UK damnit... we have curries/comets/PC World and loads others though. So it's not so bad.

Best Buy in my opinion is over priced an item that was $70 on Bestbuy was $50 on Amazon (same exact product). I have heard from others that their customer service is pretty bad. And they don't have a large selection like Fry's does.

We don't have them in San Antonio, but my answer is Fry's, if for no other reason than because their Houston, Texas, store has an awesome and very accurate mockup/model of the International Space Station, complete with the (relatively recently added) Cupola (windowed port, shown with gold-colored windows in the photo below) -- alt text

I'm a big Fry's fan... I went to Fry's today actually to pick up a network patch panel. I don't think Best Buy would have such a thing, esp. because I don't think they have anything that's rack mounted. It's too bad Fry's is a lot farther away than Best Buy, because I prefer Fry's.

Best Buy is overpriced. I go in, see a printer, walk into wal-mart, its $20 cheaper. uhhh, Seriously??

There isn't a Fry's near me (i think, i'll google/bing it later), so I need to say Amazon for me.
