I was buying a wireless USB adapter the other day at CompUSA when a guy in a Belkin shirt tried to Chewlies me into buying a Belkin equivalent.

“You know, they’ve got a thirty-dollar rebate on the Belkin wireless adapter.”

“Oh yeah? How much is it?”

“Well, it’s thirty dollars off. That Netgear thing only has a ten-dollar rebate.”

“But what’s the final price?”

“Forty dollars.”

“Well, then this would be cheaper then, wouldn’t it? Is this what you do? You’re a switcher? People come in and buy someone else’s products and you try to get them to switch to Belkin?”

“You, uh, could put it that way, yeah.”

    Man, that figures. Belkin’s shit is so overpriced.

    I recently bought a firewire card from CompUSA (which is thoroughly in bed with Belkin). It was packaged to look like a generic “business” type component but was really Belkin.

    Ended up corrupting my hard drive. Near as I can tell without additional testing, the amount of RF it through out caused data issues with my drives.
