Fry’s – The good, the bad, and the ugly

As I had some time to kill today, I decided to go ahead and get a new hard drive for my PowerBook and replace it without waiting until tomorrow. The choices on a Sunday for getting a laptop hard drive are pretty limited, basically only Fry’s Electronics. Fry’s is not my favorite store as their service is not great, return lines are long, and sometimes they try to pass returns off as new (I had bought a monitor from them that turns out had been used and when it broke, it was out of warranty even though it was less than 1 year since I had bought it). However, on the plus side, Fry’s has decent store hours, good selection, OK prices, and carries parts others don’t (where can you find a #6 Torx screwdriver locally?). While I try to avoid shopping at Fry’s, sometimes it is unavoidable.
