    Interesting. I have been shopping at Fry's since they opened their first store in 1985 and I'm well aware of their practice of resealing packages and putting them back on the shelf. In their favor, the packages are always marked so it's plain to see they have been returned and are usually discounted for that reason. I have returned many things to Fry's and have never had them refuse a return. Sorry that your experience has been different.

    Fry's continues to be my "goto" store based on their selection and prices even though their sales personnel may not be the most knowledgeable.

    I guess the moral of this is YMMV
    We don't have a Fry's in my area so I can't honestly say either way. I do know Best Buy sales is a Jekyll/Hyde but their return department here has been top notch

    As Mark notes, YMMV. My experiences at Fry's were so uniformly negative that I stopped shopping there but obviously they have enough satisfied customers to stay in business.

    I would say though that one of the negative experiences I had was a resealed package that was neither marked nor discounted. Obviously, errors can happen in a retail environment and my general rule is that every merchant gets at least one free pass on a problem and all merchants are judged on the basis of how they they deal with problems, not whether those problems occur. For me, at least, Fry's failed both of these tests.

    I'm curious as to what part of the country you are in. Fry's started in Sunnyvale, CA which is where I generally shop. Were your experiences in a different state?

    May I suggest, since you are happy with your Tab, you look at another forum ,a sister site to this one , galaxytabforums.net ?
    There's not really a lot of Tab 2 sub forum traffic there yet but there is quite a very helpful membership force that right now mostly frequents the 10.1 area.
    Your insight and reviews of your Tab would be greatly appreciated. I've PMed you a link directly to the Tab2 forum

    I just ordered one [from Amazon], and for the same reason as the original poster. Love my KFire, but the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 looks like it will do so much more than the KF.

    Haven't decided what to do with the KF, but plan to use both until I decide.

    Truly enjoy this site and it has been a great help.

    I also had negative experiences with Fry's in the Bay area and stopped going there. They couldn't even retrieve a receipt for me for a high value item and the people I talked to about it couldn't carry on a conversation in English. I got fed up with trying to explain the problem to them. However, my brother swears by them and makes special trips to their stores from the central coast. To each his own, I say.
