Note:  We have separate pages for "Computers" and for "Home / Business Security" and there are electronics items also shown in our various "Discounters / Outlets" pages.

Remember the "good old days" when Circuit City would battle it out with LA Tronics, and Best Buy, and Good Guys, and department stores had big electronics sections?  And then there was "Crazy Gideon's" in Hollywood and downtown with "insane prices" and TV commercials, too.  Well, those days are over.  But you can still get some deals and best buys on new and used TVs and electronics and we'll show you some of those deals here.  Shop around, and check our various pages such as "Computers" and our various "discounters" to find their deals.  Also, here we will show you places to have your electronics repaired and serviced.


Update May 15, 2013  ARC TV in Burbank is the kind of place you really need.  They offer quick service and low prices to repair TVs, stereos, CD players and they can even repair and service microwaves, computers, lamps and small appliances.  This is the kind of place where you bring a favorite appliance or TV to be repaired so that it will last longer and ARC TV will help to keep your older appliances and TVs out of landfills and ARC TV will help to keep you from having to buy something new when you could really use that money for something else.

There are several important reasons to repair rather than buy new and replace.  At ARC TV they believe that the new electronics may have lower prices but they are not built to last as long as in previous model years.  Many TVs made today, they say, may last only one to three years before they need to be serviced or even replaced.

If your relatively new or even new TV needs to be serviced it just might need some small part and then your TV could give you many years of service.  Often when TVs are brought to ARC TV the replacement parts are better than the original parts that were used.  ARC TV has found that 60% of items such as DVD players, CD players, VCRs and printers just need to be cleaned and lubricated.  Another 25% only need to have some belts changed to get them working again.

Smaller items such as toasters and toaster ovens can also be repaired and might only need to have switches cleaned.  Curling irons and hair dryers can be repaired -- perhaps only a new cord needs to be installed.  Lamp not working?  Bring in lamps for a new cord, switch or socket.

ARC TV also installs roof top antennas. 

ARC TV also has sales of new TVs and by ordering them -- instead of warehousing them -- they can actually save shoppers some money.  Looking for a gently used TV because that will fill your needs?  ARC TV has them.  Our Best Buys TV Show report is below.  ARC TV can also transfer videos and film to DVD and audio to CD to preserve your memories, and they can make copies for friends and relatives.

SPECIAL OFFER  Mention you saw this report and you will get $7.00 off any service they offer that is over $38.50 and $10.00 off on any new or rebuilt TV, stereo, DVD, CD or phonograph.


2529 West Magnolia Boulevard
Burbank, California 91505

ARC TV can also help you preserve your cherished memories.  They can transfer fragile slides, home movies, home videos and audio recordings to DVD and CD so they will be preserved and protected.  Watch our TV show report below about their services and consumer friendly prices.


Update December 4, 2012  ReMart is the giant discounter of high quality merchandise from department stores and it has opened its new location in Anaheim.  This is where you can save 50% on brand name merchandise that you see at club stores and discount department stores.  Yes, ReMart beats those prices.  And there are even more incredible deals from time to time because of special promotions and special purchases.  ReMart only sells first quality merchandise including electronics including big screen and high definition TVs, home goods and major home appliances and small household appliances.  What you will absolutely love about this quality outlet is that it stands behind everything it sells and everything has a warranty and a guarantee and you always have return privileges.  You will even find 90-day return privileges on high definition TVs and a 2-year warranty as well.  You can see our Best Buys TV Show reports about ReMart on our "Discounters, Outlets in Orange County" page.

1011 North Tustin Avenue
Anaheim, California


Update August 4, 2011  If you go shopping for a new TV beware this trick that many stores use: they put lower quality, lower priced TVs right next to the higher priced TVs with better-- but more expensive-- pictures.  As you look at the various pictures a salesman is likely to point out the differences between the picture of the budget model TV and the higher priced model right next to it.  But remember this: when you get home, your TV will not be side-by-side with a higher priced model.  So concentrate on the model you want to buy and ask yourself "is this picture good for me?"  Don't make the mistake of asking yourself "do I want to pay more for that better picture?"  When you look at a higher priced TV with a better picture you might be falling into the retailer's "comparison trap" that's designed to make you spend more.


Update March 31, 2011  Allan's TV & Appliances is in the Anaheim Marketplace at 1440 South Anaheim Boulevard, Anaheim.  Allan's TV & Appliances discounts major brands because the factories ship their overstocks and closeouts to Allan's TV's for fast sales.  You will find prices discounted as much as 50%.  For information call (714) 532-2552.  Allan's TV & Appliances discounts new TVs including the new 3-D HD TV systems and game systems.  Allan's also sells 3D glasses and discounts additional 3-D glasses that you might need.  Allan's TV & Appliances gets its deals by buying over-production from factories and getting closeouts, and extra inventory from other stores.  There are warranties and guarantees and factory sealed boxes.  Allan's TV's & Appliances can also handle special orders for giant screen TVs as well as orders for commercial businesses such as restaurants and bars that need multiple sets.  Mention my name and get a free wall mount for any size TV you buy here.  There is a also financing -- get a zero-percent interest rate for one year with a zero downpayment, and you can't get much better than that.  Allan's TV's & Appliances is in space B-3 which is near the front of the Anaheim Marketplace.  And don't be fooled by the size of this discounter-- they have a huge warehouse loaded with deals.  Watch the video below but keep in mind that these items and prices are from our video in early 2011 and prices and inventory have changed.

After 35 years, Crazy Gideon's has closed the business at 830 Traction Avenue in downtown Los Angeles.  Gideon told me that he wants to remain in the wholesale business and wants to broker high end, luxury autos including Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Mercedes and other luxury models.

Crazy Gideon's, 830 Traction Avenue, downtown Los Angeles.  Call (213) 625-5775.  Below are some of the videos and reports I did for Crazy Gideon's over the past couple of years.

Here are some TV commercials that I recorded for Crazy Gideon's.  The first one had his June 2009 specials.
