Geeks.com / CompGeeks.com Store Review

3 items, 2 broken


If you buy from geeks.com/compgeeks, don't expect your merchandise to work. Don't expect a refund or exchange for broken items, either.

About

This is a log of my experience with the geeks.com (formerly compgeeks.com) store. Shopping there has had mostly bad results for me. I have received three items from this store, and two of them were broken.

First Purchase

The first thing I bought there was a cd-mp3 player. I saw the Rio SP150 there for only $34, and bought two. I had been wanting a cd-mp3 player for years, and figured I'd get another one as a gift for a friend.

One of the two items worked, and the other one didn't. Skipping lots of details, I returned the non-working unit to compgeeks for replacement. But it was out of stock and they gave me store credit instead. That would have been fine, except they have a pretty small selection, and I couldn't find anything else I wanted there. At least, not for around $34.

Second Purchase

Eventually, months later, I happened to see something at the store I was interested in. A keychain-sized USB storage device with mp3 player, voice recorder, and flashlight built in. I was mostly interested in it as a voice recorder and flashlight. But it was broken. My review is here: Muzic Aera

Info there includes my bad experiences with the compgeeks returns dept. Shoppers, beware. If you buy from geeks.com/compgeeks, don't expect your merchandise to work. Don't expect a refund or exchange for broken items, either.
