Ok, so I admit, I've been harsh on Sony the last few years.  I really feel like they've done their customers a disservice with their attitude, more than anything else, and the price has always been my biggest barrier (the tiny boy-hand controllers didn't help much either).  BUT.

Last Xmas I purchased an Insignia Blu-Ray player from Best Buy, mostly because $200 was all I could spare and I need me some HD movie goodness due to the obsolescence of my HD player.  Fast forward 5 months and the POS decided it didn't want to read any discs anymore. Obviously still under warranty, I took it into my local BB and Geek Squad shipped it off to a repair center.  They called me today, informed me that they junked it and I was free to either get it replaced outright or put the money I spent on it towards a different player...

I think you can all guess what I am doing....

I had a non-PS3 Sony blu-ray player and hated the shit out of it, took it back and haven't replaced it since. I need to get a new PS3...  tear

ok, so a bit of weirdness... I purchased my PS3 yesterday, got it home and discovered someone's user data and save game data on it.  Took it back to Best Buy today and exchanged it....

Seriously, wtf?

Best buy employee probably checked out the system, played it, then boxed it back up.

Most likely, it was returned. The person that did so might have even lied and said they hadn't hooked it up.
It's good you took it back though...Sony is really a pain about providing service and there could be an issue if the system was registered twice.

could be why the chain's name is 'best buy', rather than 'highest quality'?...
