Buying Electronics: Find the Right Seller and the Right Price
Buying electronics can be overwhelming. Thousands of retailers, big and small, sell hundreds of different electronics products made by a variety of manufacturers. Computers, digital cameras and camcorders, mp3 players, stereo systems and components - you have many choices. As a consumer it's hard to know what's the best product for your needs and where to buy it. Here are tips that can help you buy the electronics that are right for you.
-Display that can change from portrait to landscape;
-On-screen QWERTY keyboard;
-Home, Menu, and Back functions always usable;
-Rear-facing camera of at least two megapixels;
-Way to upload software;
-Computer connection via USB port; and
-GPS, compass, and accelerometer.
Buying a Surround Sound System
If you are in the market for a surround sound system, you have many options, almost too many. If you don't do some research before you buy, you may waste a lot of money on equipment that doesn't fit your needs. With surround sound each of several speakers takes different parts of the original recording and turns it into sound. The standard stereo system has two speakers, and is called "2.0." Common surround sound systems have five, six, or even seven speakers. Most of these systems have one subwoofer, which play very low frequency sounds. When you see a system referred to as 5.1, which means it has five speakers and one subwoofer. Understanding the terminology is just the beginning of your pre-buying surround sound education.
When it comes to buying headphones, the most important considerations are the components you plan to use the headphones with and where you plan to use them. Make sure, for example, that the jack on the headphones is compatible with your system. And remember that headphones designed for home systems are not the same as headphones for portable systems like mp3 players.
If you plan to use your headphones while bicycling in traffic, for example, you should not buy noise-cancelling headphones because you need to be able to hear background noise for safety reasons. But if you want to listen to music while someone in the same room is watching television, noise-cancelling headphones may be the perfect choice.
You should look for the style you find most comfortable: over the head, back of the head, or ear bud. Weight is another comfort issue: if you expect to wear the headphones for long periods of time, the lighter the better.
Where to Buy
Once you have done your research and know exactly what you want, you can start shopping. Most people decide where to buy based on price, but don't forget to add in any shipping costs (some online stores ship for free), convenience (Is it worth driving 50 miles to save $25?), return policy, consumer satisfaction ratings, and warrantees.
When it comes to electronics, it's a buyer's market. Take the time to educate yourself about the products so you can make wise purchasing decisions. Then compare prices and other considerations. That's how you will get what you want at the best possible price.
