Well actually Best Buy does carry many quality products and if I'm okay
with handling my own tech support, I'd rather save my bucks. I actually
found this one wireless device at other places and it was more expensive
and seriously doubt that I'd receive any better support. I can usually
read the manual and follow instructions fairly well and rarely, ifever,
need handholding. Bessides, I usually go to the manufacturers tech
support when I need more specific help and that usually is the best way.
I believe this device is made by Intel. I've mis-placed my info but it
looks pretty intriguing nonetheless.
I've bought high-end household appliances and other items from Best Buy
and sure do like their frequent Zero percent terms for periods of time.
Anyway, getting further off track here. I like self-service whenever it
will suit my needs and it frequently does.
