Here is the quote:

FRY'S WILL MEET ANY
INTERNET PRICE
LOW PRICES GUARANTEED STORE WIDE!

Or if within 30 days of purchase you see a lower current price from a local Fry's Electronics store, Fry's will refund 100% of the difference. To apply for Fry's low price guarantee, simply bring in your original cash register receipt and verifiable proof of a lower current price.

And here is the real truth:

I marked with the Red Color a very important part written above: excluding any applicable sales tax. Today's Fry's Electronics Taxes in AZ are 9.30%. That's what the sale people are keeping silence about. So here is the truth and don't let the Fry's people catch you with their dirty trick! The truth is - when you purchase on line in most cases you DO NOT pay taxes. I just made a price match for a few items at my local Fry's Electronics. Yes, I got the difference, but not what I expected to get. Instead of $77.56 I got only $26. Why? Taxes.

The whole very loud company works for those who don't know math. But we do and we see that Fry's treats its customers like fools. It IS STILL interesting to buy on line because we really SAVE MONEY on line. Fry's actually doesn't do any good price match that any regular healthy person knowing math could expect. Ideally it has to be out-of-pocket price to Internet store delivered price match. Only in this case it would be more interesting to buy at Fry's than on the Internet. But it didn't happen. Again. Period. Somebody's brilliant idea was completely trashed.

I think I will go to Fry's Electronics and return all the items back since I can easily save over $50 even after this so called "match".

Sorry, guys, it's just a dirty trick to attract more customers, nothing else. But we know the truth now.

Any comments are welcome!

I got one more experience with our local Fry's Electronics today. I was going to get couple hard drive enclosures and I wanted them today to start using my 1/2 TB 2.5" drives. Even if the price match includes local taxes, the difference cannot be so huge for a $10-15 box anyway. So I went to the store, found two different boxes with 2.5" enclosures: NexStar CX and NexStar SX. One of them was price-tagged as $19.99 and another one as $15.88. I scanned both price tags with my smart phone and found that the Fry's Internet price of one of the box was $19.99 as it was exactly shown on the price tag in the store, but the local Walmart price was only $10.15. It was strange, but since it was promised that I can get a price match... I went to the manager and asked about the price match. The manager asked me two questions: to what store and to what price. After I showed him the price on my smart phone (keep in mind - I didn't print anything, I just got all these prices a few seconds ago!), he matched the price in just one minute, but noticed that it's $12.99 at the store, not $19.99 as I have seen. I told him that he needs to correct the price tag on the shelves since it's misleading the customers. He got no reaction. Well, it's not first time when the items were incorrectly price tagged, I was not surprised at all. Anyway, I got the price match from mistakenly tagged $19.99, then from correct $12.99, and finally down to $10.15, and it took just one minute without any printed documents, etc. The manager simply found this price on the Internet, made a required correction in his computer and printed me the paper for cashier. That's all.

So it can be convenient in some particular cases when the price is not very high and the difference between with and without taxes is negligible.

The black pretty nicely looking carrying case for the hard drive enclosure has a magnet lock! Applause The magnet is not very strong, but for sure it will be enough to kill your hard drive or at least to generate a number of problems including bad blocks if you keep your enclosure with the hard drive inside this carrying case for a long enough time. Bravo guys who create that! Think If you bought this device and, what is much more important, started using this carrying case, take a blade and cut out this magnets. Don't forget to check both sides of the lock.

P.S. It would also be funny to keep this case together with your credit cards... Just an idea.Think
