Equally both. For me that means Best Buy vs the Internet. Sometimes wanting it now/today makes BB the winner depending on what it is.

BB is good for $30 short HDMI cables. Surely by spending so much more you get a better cable? Not.

I think that is how they stay in business. People tend to research the expensive items, but they will often pay triple the internet price for accessories.

I don't think you give people enough credit. I bet the number of people who pay $50 for a gold plated 3 foot HDMI cable are pretty low. I hope, anyway.

All those people (and there are more than you think) that have no idea about cables and electronics get sucked in to BB prices.

^ +1. Why else would BB waste the merchandise space?

Because there are people that do buy them. I'm not saying no one does. Just a small minority.
