Yes, that's true... BUT, the return policies at Walmart are better than anywhere else. That's the only reason I bought my Roku there. Real pain in the butt to have to send something defective back if you bought it online somewhere and can't physically walk it in and get your money back. We bought a Colby cd player a few years back and it was basically broken within 5 minutes after we opened it. The cost to ship it back to get an RMA would have cost 75% of the entire purchase price of the thing. No need in paying for it twice. We we just went to Wal-mart and bought a cheaper cd player the next day after that. Much less hassle, and the walmart one actually had more features.My experience is that Walmart attracts a lot of the lower end of the intelligence spectrum. That is why I almost never shop there. I have found that their prices can almost always be equaled or beaten by looking on the internet or shopping around just a bit.

Totally derailing this conversations, I'd like to add that because of Walmart's low pay and lack of benefits for many employees (as well as the company's practice of shuttering other local businesses via bullying), it often costs taxpayers MORE to have a walmart than to not have one. Add to that their other social issues, and it's still worth not supporting them.
