got the last one at ross township-pittsburgh area. REally enjoying the device so far, although the screen is a bit dark and has poor angle view, but for 115 bucks you can't beat that.

Now I can play in bed while my wife watches TV. Sometimes you are just to lazy to go to the living room and play on a big screen, so this is really nice !!!

Thanks op

Everywhere, I found one in Austin and two in Houston. When you actually go through the checkout process it says the item is not available. I even called the store and they said the item was not in stock.

Thanks OP for the heads up! Picked up 1 at the BB in Temecula, CA this AM. We were going to buy this for $250 elsewhere! Planning to go overseas with this and our Xbox. The kids(and I) love it!

I also found one in store after trying to purchase it online and after calling the store who said it was out of stock. If its showing up as a clearance item for your store, chances are good that they have them in-store. As a screen it's decent for the money and its a great carrying case, plus its the cheapest I've seen. I just wished it was the halo vanguard one or the n7 mass effect design.

The 19 inch model was never available in BB. They just never carried it to have it available for clearance.

Bullshit just bring the item with your receipt and exchange it, it doesn't have to the same day. you have 15 days for refund and exchange regardless of whether its clearance or not. I got this answered from the customer rep since the one I bought seemed like it was 'tested' out already, presumably by same store employee you said to me the screen is awesome. Also you can post on thier official forum if you further issues.

have you guys noticed that when you use the headphone input it makes an annoying sound, like static? I don't get the sound when I use the speakers

Thats crazy they would take that stance on the return. BBY needs customer loyalty more than ever right now.

Your issue seems almost identical to the problem I had with the screen on the Sentry I bought on 4/2 - Pressure marks on the side with watermarks and discoloration throughout the lower part of the screen.

I couldn't exchange mine at the BBY I purchased at because they were out of stock. I went to the only other BBY near me that had one stock on Wednesday 4/3. They handled the exchange without issue.

Grabbed the last one at Worcester MA store, none around the area.

I don't get the decision to not have a GameCube disc reader on the system. Is it just to resell GCN games as eShop downloads later? Is it to keep the cost down? I can't imagine adding GameCube BC would cost a lot of money.

I got the same rep that helped me with the pick up yesterday when I went to the store. Exchange it no problem. Spoke with a different rep last night that said they couldn't. I did get a 25 dollar gift card from the phone rep yesterday but the 39 mile one way trip killed me haha. There's still one left in the Bay Area but its the damaged one I just returned. Hopefully they don't put it back on the shelf and try to sell it again.

You have to go to store locator and click on individual stores and check their clearance page. Should be under video games category.

I found one of these using the online store locator. However, how do I know I know if this is an open box item or clearance item? Where can I find it in the store to check it out first to make sure its worth buying?

I'm incredibly tempted to grab this.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

Got mine for $18 after all the Best Buy GCs I had. This thing is so awesome. Now my girlfriend can deal with me gaming in the living room while she watches TV. If you're able to buy this in your area, I highly suggest it. I was able to get the only one left in MI.

It will say open box in the title of the item if it is. Otherwise it's brand new :)

By the way, the extended warranty at BB is $19.99 for 2 years. They probably won't have a replacement for this. They would issue a store credit. I passed on the warranty.

Made that mistake with my Playstation 3D display. Don't ever see them selling these anymore. Wish I could find one of these personal gaming environments but there is zero within 100 miles of me. Guess this is just a deal I am going to have to miss.

There was zero too in my area but for shiz and giggles I just walked in one to see and one was right there. So my advice is just to stop by and see because I saw the clearance section and it was not over there but the price ran up right and the employees didn't know.

This is a niche thing so I bet there are more out there
