    computer Harvey Norman and their prices.

    Is it just me or do the prices of products at Harvey Norman seem to be heavily jacked up.
    There is a particular router that i want that Harvey sells for $229.95 that i can pick up the same router for about $165 elsewhere. And everything is basically more expensive at Harvey than other retail stores.

    Does anyone else think Harvey is a bit of a rort ? .

    You can often get good deals on some electronic goods - TVs, VCRs, DVD players and the like. Can also get good prices on whitegoods. But they always tend to be a huge ripoff for any computer components (and an even bigger ripoff on complete PCs).

    That's what i have noticed. Their PC Hardware , software , network products etc are just more expensive than other stores though electrical goods they price very reasonably

    cheers

    I'd have to say in my experience that their prices have always been above the norm. in my area. I have just assumed that the bargaining price has been included in the price ($100 product, knock 'em down to $80, that the price they intended to sell it for anyway).

    I agree with ozeagle, DO NOT buy computer components or pre built computers from harvey normans. But i have found some specials that were a tad bit cheap!
    For example : FarCry for $15.00 AUD.

    Its a bit presumptuous to say that all Harvey Norman prices are expensive. A few weeks back I got a 50 pack of A4-sized Kodak Premium photo paper for $14.95 from Harvey Norman.

    Have to go a long way to find a price better than that, I would think.

    My experiences with Harvey Norman are they can have bargain prices and way over the top prices. As [ae]Andrew has also said, I've found that their games are smoetimes cheaper, as they frequently mark down the prices of thier games - throwing then into the bargain bins!

    Trust me, the Harvey Norman near me is overly over-priced. I rarely buy things there anymore. And that is only when I KNOW I won't find things any cheaper anywhere else.

    Harvey Norman = Inflated Prices.

    Like anywhere though they will price match if you can prove other places are selling the same item cheaper. You can also negotiate the price in most cases regardless. If you walk in, take the item of the shelf and go buy it then it doesn't matter where you shop. I have got some good deals by negotiating the price at Harvey Norman, I had to purchase a new notebook at 4pm NYE and Harvey Norman gave me a very good price after some bartering.

    Not to say this is my personal opinion, rather an observation - Harvy Norman often attracts people with their finance terms. Even if they can get the same thing cheaper elsewhere - they may prefer to get it with H. N. if they're going to be able to pay it off over 12 or 24 months without interest.

    I would have to agree, finance is what often gets the business for them.

    got done w/computer chair

    Bought a $210 chair (assembled) got it home, used it for a week, hydraulics packed in. No hassle, I took it back and they gave me another with no fuss. The wife also needed another chair, went to a little place near Mile End (SA) and found a FAR SUPERIOR chair for $170.

    And you might go somewhere else and find an even more superior chair for under $170. It's called shopping around. You mentioned that you returned your chair with a min of fuss. Would you be able to do that at the cheaper store?
