      They can give you a two year warranty on it cheap though…

        I always opt for the 4 year extended warrenty for iTunes myself. Peace of mind doesn’t come cheap.

          Read the fine print.

          “Warrenties on gift cards cannot be extended over the period of 2 years”

          Expires 2 years after purchase.

      Gotta love Dick Smith. They have a Netgear DGN2200 router for a “hot” price of $99 ($60 off their regular price!!!). I went to city store and sold out. Turns out Officeworks has it on regular price for $98.

        I think that is called Marketing. Not good Marketing, but it is Marketing.

          I didn’t pay shipping, or worry about the item getting lost in the mail, or worry about warrenty if the cable was DOA, or getting a 3m cable sent by mistake, or wait 4 weeks for it to arrive.

          I needed a cable that night, so I bought one on the way home.
          Sorry, can you point out a place that sells them that cheap, that ISN’T online?

          Sorry, my recollection must be shot. It was a 5m TOSLINK cable, not HDMI for $40.

          I did get a HDMI cable recentally too, but not from dick, and certainly not for that much. Think it was $5.

        But that’s not as good as Big W’s “HDMI 2.5m mylar cable features anti-virus protection”

        http://www.bigw.com.au/entertainment/video-games-consoles/xbox360/xbox360-accessories/bpnBIGW_0000000116492/3rd-earth-xbox-360-elite-hdmi-2-5m-basic-cable

        That’s why I don’t shop at Tricky Dicky, they don’t protect their customers.

          I love this one. “gold plated connectors for maximum signal transfer” on your optical cable.

          Since almost everyone has a login with BigW their review section is already starting to get bombed by people on this site.
          Hopefully they will change their description of the item or leave the reviews because if they do the latter it will be a funny read within a few hours.
