Went to visit my new baby niece this past weekend and I saw my bro-in-law had a new Home Theater with speakers... told me how he bought it... **face palm** $300 down the drain...
except in many major cities you can score deals on things that fell off the truck.I'm surprised this thread dates back to 2010. Thought this was a rule of thumb like 15 years ago hehe
In general, never buy ANYTHING from anyone that approaches you on the street. If you want to buy something, you will go out and do research/get it on your own.
how much? anything less than $10 and Id say go for it what the hell.I went to the local pawn shop here and they have a logitech z-5500 in its box. Its supposedly broken, the sticker says the main unit turns on but no audio comes out. What yall say, worth buying for cheap and fix it or skip?
Yup, my friends got hit up the other day. Dude pulled up next to them at a light in a van, got their attention, and had them roll down their down. Went on a spiel about how the factory shipped two sets and they wanted to sell it before their boss did or something. Nice unethical propositioning :biggrin:Holy cow! Just saw this thread but couldn't believe it. Are they still doing this? I remember back in the early to mid '80s, guys driving around in those white vans trying to sell crappy speakers.
Well, you know the game, and you're also a smart guy posting on a technical forum, so it makes sense to you, but to most other people, that seems like a pretty good deal. Technically not illegal, just on the unethical side :biggrin:I really can't understand how anyone could be SO stupid to believe such crap, and give random guy in a parking lot money for unknown merchandise, and without a bill.
