Yes but that's exactly the sort of reply that would have people coming on here saying "They don't know anything about their products!". You can't win with people...
No signature worth mentioning...
Only with the completely unreasonable. If that happened to me, and they did indeed find out, I'd be impressed. I'd come here to comment nagatively only if they got another colleague to come and stare at my potential purchase whilst sucking their teeth in, agreeing that it was a bit of a brain teaser and no mistake.
I'm looking at you, Currys/PC World, just off the Bagington roundabout.

Have to admit, I don't have much truck with all this "Comet suck/their staff know f*** all" line. In the times I've been in, their staff knew their onions, were courteous and polite. As good as anywhere else on the high street.
I popped in to the Kinnaird Park Comet in Edinburgh tonight. I'd bought my laptop there last year and the latest Apple TV earlier this year. The shop was clean, well stocked and everything was well laid out back then. My dad bought me my first hifi from the Comet branch in Dalry Road 30 years ago this year. It was a great shop then too. No issues and no pressure to buy.
I bought a Monster HDMI cable tonight - 40% off. Chatting to the girl at the till, she said that the group was in profit, but the new owners were out to asset strip; they'd withdrawn £50k from the business and were looking to wind it up. In fact, that particular store still has new stock coming in every day. Make your own mind up about how good or not the business was with that in mind. Not everyone wants online.
And while we're at it, some of the comments on this thread leave me jaded with humanity sometimes. The 'some fire sale, only 10% off' and the like. These are folks jobs and livelihoods here and a month before Christmas. You want a 64Gb iPad3 for how much off? 50%? Wake up. They are looking to generate as much as they can; the Kinnaird Park store looks pretty stripped out, so not everyone shares the same views as some have expressed on here.

I popped into a comet this afternoon that was closing it's store at 16:30, their must have been at least a dozen staff probably more about twenty customers, the stock in shop was empty all they had was accessories eg hdmi to micro hdmi cable & oven cleaner reduced from about twenty quid to less than four quid, i didn't want anything i just went for a nosey.

So why does a group that's in profit go into administration?
