Why did you need three HDMI cables for an Apple TV? It only needs one.

Best Buy is such a rip off for cables. So annoying.

YESYESYES Monoprice.com makes fantastic cables! I use them for pretty much every install I do for family/friends.

Plus the BJ cables are built in the US (at least certain parts of them).

And this is what I use for my installs/people with a bigger budget.

You bought 3 Apple TV's? Why? I still don't see the appeal of them over a WDTV Live.

My Chinese made laptop power cord burnt out today. I spent $7+$15 shipped a year ago from a seller based in China via eBay. I needed a power adapter bad, so I bought a genuine HP power adapter for $80 from best buy. While I was waiting in line, I searched on eBay via app on iPhone and found same exact, genuine, brand new, HP power cord for $30 shipped.

Spent $80 for the cable at best buy today and will return it for full refund when the $30 cable arrives. I used the same system for my griffin car and wall charger & my mophie power pack plus battery extender. Battery extender was $107 from best buy and griffin charger was $45. I got the griffin pack for $15 shipped and the mophie for $60 shipped.

Friends think I'm ghetto/crazy. I jusy dont like getting ripped off. And hey, I can't afford a BMW if I have to pay retail price for everything. eBay/amazon FTW.

Best buy sucks. They made my NO GO list several years ago.

This is why they have to mark stuff up. They have good return policies.

When the majority of people fall for the "You're going to spend $1200 on your TV, you can't spend $50 on a cable?" speech it's profitable to keep it up.

You're exactly right. I used to sell for CC, and if I got you passed the 1000 mark, I would hit you with small items like cables and they wouldn't budge because it's just another 50-100.

Some of the "reviews" on Amazon are hilarious!

There was a reddit about that 2.5K cable and some dude stole one from a news station and replaced the original with a $5 cable... no one ever noticed any difference in quality, look or anything for that matter lol.

i get this...but does every local store have to been in on the conspiracy?? I mean stupid Big Lots was charging $12....shouldn't there be at least 1 honest store??

And why just rip us off with HDMI cables?? Why not batteries or tools...or other crap???
