Do You Buy HT Gear Online or In-Store?
Yesterday, it was reported that Best Buy plans to close 50 stores and eliminate about 400 jobs over the next year due to mounting losses in the face of competition from online retailers. Of course, online buying is the ultimate in convenience, but then you have nowhere local to go for service. Also, a store provides at least the possibility of seeing and hearing a demo before you buy, though TV demos in big-box stores are typically useless because the TVs are not set up properly and the environment is nothing like any room in a home.
This news leads me to wonder about where you buy your home-theater gearonline or at brick-and-mortar stores? Why do you shop online or in-store?
