When deciding which size monitor to buy, you’ll want to consider the amount of room you have on your gaming desk and what resolution quality you’ll need depending on how close your gaming chair will be to the screen. A day after releasing new PS5 stock alongside Amazon, Walmart, and GameS top, Best Buy followed up by releasing another PS5 restock moments ago, and unlike yesterday's attempt, today's drop appears to have gone far smoother, or at least that's what the tweet's under the Best Buy trend over on Twitter suggest.
While there are plenty of customers complaining about how quickly the stock vanished and various website/cart issues, a larger portion than normal are ready to celebrate after finally securing an order for the elusive console. In fact, PS5 drops were virtually non-existent during the first two weeks of the new year, likely because retailers sold out of their supply in the build-up to Christmas.
Another option is to buy a refurbished gaming laptop that has been professionally inspected and approved for purchase. Once you’ve decided on the best gaming laptop for your needs, you’ll want to make sure you have the ultimate setup at your gaming desk.
Then when you return home, you simply place your laptop back on the dock and your gaming keyboard and other peripherals are already hooked up and ready to go. Whatever model you choose, Best Buy carries a wide selection of PC gaming devices and accessories for hours of enjoyment.
Not only does this mean all benefits will be discontinued, but all remaining memberships at this point will be canceled, and right now, there's no word of an alternative service. All that's been issued is the email below, which the retailer has been sending out to members of Gamers Club Unlocked.
“We have an important announcement to share about your Gamers Club Unlocked membership,” reads the email. “Thank you for being a Best Buy member and part of the Gamers Club Unlocked program. We have made the decision to end the current Gamers Club Unlocked program which means Weill cancel remaining memberships and discontinue all current benefits as of March 1, 2021.

They weren't the only retailers to restock the PlayStation 5 -- Walmart, Amazon, and a couple of other smaller regional retailers also released new PS5 stock -- but GameS top and Best Buy are the only ones trending on Twitter because of their restocking, and that's because their drops were weighed down by the most website issues and went extremely quick, likely due not just to demand, but scalpers.
Like in the past, the tweets are brimming with those relaying word that the stock vanished before they even had a chance to click on anything. A lot has changed in my hometown of Philadelphia in the 26 years since I moved to Los Angeles.
After unexpectedly being rejected from The University of Pennsylvania, I was a bit crestfallen that an Ivy League education wasn't in my future. What I didn't understand was that my fate was to head 3,000 miles from home in a shiny, red, 1992 Volkswagen GTI that I was able to buy with the commission I made from selling stereos at both Bryan Mar Stereo and Sassafras Audio on the Main Line of Philadelphia.
The one thing I did understand was that it was a blast selling AV gear as a high school kid--and profitable too. Roll the tape all the way forward to my recent August 2019 trip back to Philadelphia, so my young son could spend some time with Mom-Mom and his kid-cousins.
Trips to the Franklin Institute, the indoor zip-line place, the Greek diner to eat scrapped (better than you might think), countless hours in the pool with cousins, family barbecues, and some meaningful, out-of-town Pokémon hunting were just the tip of the iceberg. When I arrived at Mom-Mom's house, though, I couldn't help but to notice the nearly six-inch-thick TV that she had placed on top of a very nice Standout Designs equipment cabinet.
This thing was a total disaster: thick form factor, huge bezel, and the picture from her Verizon Fins system didn't come close to filling the actual screen. I was left feeling like a bad son despite having recently procured her an ADCOM, Anthem, and Martin Logan audio system.
I couldn't help but remember the days when I was that kid and looking to rack up the commissions on the floor with my next lead. He told me the soonest he could have Geek Squad come out and install a TV (literally around the corner and no more than five minutes away) was two weeks down the road.
I asked for help with an air purifier and the guy walked me over to a few boxes a number of aisles over. Upon telling my AV installer this story, he added an anecdote of his own from this past week: He has a client in Santa Barbara with a 100-inch Planar TV that broke right before a big event.
This was a billionaire-class emergency that he thought he could solve with a simple trip to Best Buy, so he rang them up on the way up the coast. The clerk (a carefully chosen word) told him the only way he could know if they had an 85-inch TV in stock was to go online to buy it.
So basically, they are saying “thank you for calling BestBuy, but we don't make commission so dealing with a big, bulky TV is too much work, and we don't care about how much money you are spending.” Luckily, my installer was able to procure another 85-inch set slated for another job (it better not be mine, as I just ordered one from him for my new house) and saved the day clearly with no help from Best Buy.
Back to Philly: The next day, I ventured out to Bed Bath and Beyond (BABY) in the same massive shopping complex and within seconds I ran into an associate named Connie right at the front door. I asked her if she would like to be my personal shopper for the day, and she quickly grabbed another shopping cart and led the way.
Connie helped me pick out new bath towels, kitchen towels, new bedding for my mom's guest room, a bunch of kitchen tools, fancy hand and body soap, shampoo, beachy-smelly candles, and more. The Triple B, as the store is known in our house, has seen better days on Wall Street, but if they ever were smart enough to learn the lesson of Best Buy and give someone like Connie a taste of the action via some commission, their stock would be back up at $80... not at $8.
We talk a lot at HomeTheaterReview.com about how the biggest issue in the specialty AV space is the sea change in the distribution channels over the past 10 to 15 years. Today, all but Worldwide Stereo are gone, as is that level of service, thus leaving the Amazons of the world becoming more and more relevant to anyone buying electronics.
I'm not very familiar with Target, as there aren't either many around where I live in L.A., so I asked where the electronics department was to someone who thoughtfully walked me to the back of the store. The shopping experience at Best Buy is so incredibly lacking, and that's scary for manufacturers who sell their products there, and for the industry as a whole.
Best Buy needs to learn how to give a crap, starting on the sales floor and working all the way up to the top. This starts by learning from the lesson of Circuit City and finding a way to incentivize people to provide an elevated buying experience.

Generally, companies respond quickly to customer requests made via Twitter because they know the conversation is public. However, many customer service teams are not equipped to actually solve problems over Twitter, and they will often reply quickly to tell you to call or direct you to their help desk.
One thing you might like even more than trying to tweet or DM Best Buy your customer service problem is to use Human's problem-specific help tool. For companies and problems where phone is the best or only way to deal with the issue, we give you tools to get through to a rep as much as 75% faster.
But for companies like Best Buy that might not have a phone number, we also provide tools for getting their attention on Twitter and linking back to a page that you own on Human's website. The nice thing about that is that you can track views of other customers on your own page, which is something that BestBuy's personnel would be able to see as well, meaning that you can share and publicize your issue to get attention faster.
From this page you can easily access all the possible contact information options for Best Buy as well as read up on common problems that other customers are having, find out how to fix the most popular ones, read reviews, and more. We work hard to bring you as much free information and tooling as we can, and we grow that tool set every day, bringing things like the call-back tool that skips the hold music when calling a company or call-recording for customers (beta).
The more you use Human and tell friends about it, the more we're able to provide useful, free tools for you and customers worldwide. PCB Components are selected for TURF Gaming graphics cards based on their durability and performance.
In addition to top-shelf chokes and Moses, capacitors that meet military-grade certification make the TURF stand tall amongst the competition. Smooth joints on the rear of the PCB and the elimination of human errors ensure each graphics card meets our rigorous specifications.
Finally, to ensure flawless performance when it counts, the cards are subjected to a grueling 144-hour validation trial. The vent allows hot air to escape towards chassis exhaust fans instead of being recycled back into the GPU cooler.
A conveniently placed Dual Bios switch allows customization of the card's default performance profile without software. Design The top-side RGB element can be customized to display a range of aesthetic and functional effects and also synced with other ASUS components to enable uniform lighting.
