Ihave done a lot of research on "Tech Liquidators" a Best Buy company. Here's what anyone considering of using them as a source of merchandise needs to know!!! All of the pallets/truckloads/small lots are 100% cherry picked loads. How do I know this? Its really quite simple... If you take notice as to where their warehouses providing these goods are located you will notice that these locations also serve their other websites that retail individual USED/RETURN items. Such as and also bestbuy has a private auction site for ONLY employees and vendors which specifically states that this site offers quality USED/RETURN items. Cowboom specifically deals in used/return items that STILL FUNCTION everything else goes to

For example, their warehouse in Chino, CA serves all of these sites which you can look up on either site. So this made me question something listed in the auctions on where it says that the items have not been tested??? If thats so then how do they know what to sell and what not to sell on The answer is simple. They test all of these items! The fully functional items are listed on and dealtree (which is part of bestbuy's ebay store) the items that partially work (and in dire physical condition) are listed as USED/RETURNS on and SOLD AS-IS so you have 0 recourse and the completely useless junk is listed as salvage (dont believe how they say you can make a working unit from a few broken ones these items are literally scrap metal) on

Also dont get caught up with their refurbished stuff either, after speaking with one of their representitives he told me that refurbished does not mean the item actually works and that it may just have some refurbished accessories or has been cosmetically refurbished but still may not function..WHAT?!?! lol thats what i said! To myself refurbished means that the item is tested (which it says on the site!!!)and 100% operational but according to them that is not the case, besides IF THE ITEM DID WORK IT WOULD BE BEING SOLD ON ONE OF THEIR 3 OTHER SITES for second hand products.

In my opinion the risk is not worth a reward that doesnt exsist to think a couple days ago i was about to purchase a 286, 000 dollar load ( which is an extremely high msrp for what was offered)for 53000 dollars lol thank god I didnt. I actually priced out the whole load on Ebay (item by item) and the actual current value of the items in used condition was 82, 362 dollars which assumes all items work perfectly!!! Also their rep. told me that you should only expect 50% of the items to work on the USED/RETURNS loads and that would be on a good load!!!

I feel bad for the person who won that one. You must understand that when you buy something on you are not buying 2nd hand returns that will have a decent working to not working ratio, you are buying items that didn't qualify to be sold on their other websites (which means they were not fully functional) and if you see the items being sold on those sites (which they are in rough shape) just imagine what you are going to get from!!! I cant wait to see the cookie cutter response from trying to save face!!!

    While the offer description with the items for sale, in the fine print, Best Buy states that they are not responsible if items are not as described. I don't feel that gives latitude to give misleading descriptions.
