I went there tonight. Nothing was cheap. Even at 10-20% off, it was more expensive than Walmart, Office Depot, Office Max, Newegg.com, Amazon.com or Best Buy. I walked out having bought nothing.

Today I bought this:
I had to buy a new hard drive. $120 Office Depot, after sale and coupons, WB 500GB USB2
New external DVD burner, Office Depot, Sony (Samsung) external USB2, $30 after coupons and clearance price.
Verbatim DVD media, Best Buy $13 each (price matched at Office Max, bought there, Best Buy was a zoo)

At CompUSA, cheapest external burner was $85, hard drive $170, Verbatim 25-packs $11 ... after the going away sale.
Even the candy bars at CompUSA were overpriced, $1.20 each.

I also cringe at the big signs that say "ALL SALES FINAL".

Another sign should say, WE KNOW: YOU'RE GOING OUT OF BUSINESS!
