Windows 7: The Best Buy Cruse

The Best Buy Cruse

Who else thinks everything sold at Best Buy has a cruse? Every single comptuer we buy from best buy has a problem, and when we buy them from Microcenter/ they work perfect.

For example, a brand new Dell Insprion has mother board failure, hard drive corruption and a corrupt RAM card and dies in 1 month. That same computer bought from has no issues.

My Dell XPS 8100 has given me nothing but troubles since day 1. My friend bought the same computer from and its prefect.

I bought an HP Pavilion that can barley connect to wireless, gets BSOD every few seconds, video card is constantly glitching, it cant even turn on right now. My school has the same computer bought from HP and they run fine.

A Sony VIAO laptop had a corrupt video card, hard drive, mother board, ram and PSU (at least that's what FreakSquad said) and it can't even turn on after they "fixed" it.

I bought a $70 Logitech speaker set and it picked up radio signals. Best Buy wouldn't accept returns.

I bought a HP keyboard and after a week of use it's space bar popes off.

Logitech HD web cam and the microphone makes me sound like a smurf.

There's many more cases of the Best Buy Cruse that I have though.

We are now buying all computers from or and so far those computers are perfect. We buy everything else from Microcenter or Amazon and all those products are amazing.

What is a cruse?

Ok, I just looked it up -

Definition of CRUSE

: a small vessel (as a jar or pot) for holding a liquid (as water or oil)
I'll be sure to watch out for that cruse at Best Buy next time I go there.

I bought a Packard Bell there back in 96. It ran Windows 95 and I used to call it my Packard He!!. All the time it was Best Buy curse! Never bought anything else from Best Buy. Started buying online and still do.

You guys are mean

But yeah I was lost too. Thanks for the definition Airbot.

Anyways I barely buy parts from Best Buy, let alone computers - prices are ridiculous.
