Go Touch It — 38 Comments

  1. I rarely shop online. I would rather go to the store and see/touch the item I want to buy. When it comes to buying gadgets, my husband would take time doing research and reviews online then go to the store to actually see it first hand before deciding whether to buy it or not.

  2. I totally agree about touching and buying! I like to order repeat items on the internet…but new stuff I like to touch before I buy.

  3. I do agree with you. I too like to go to the store and being able to see the thing I want and touch it and sample it before I buy. But because we live farm from malls and any stores I end up buying online, which is also a risk. I do have my share of ending up with things that aren’t really what I thought or things that wasn’t right and I actually didn’t like it. I do rely on reviews too online to decide whether or not I should buy it.

  4. I read reviews of certain products or electronics if i wish to buy one. I have to ensure myself that before i invest or spend my money, i would know that it’s the right product, there is no such thing as perfect at all. something is missing that that’s what manufacturer’s do in order to have more device and earn more money, like you after the review researches. i would feel comfortable of seeing the product in person or even touch it, to see if it’s what i want.

  5. I like to try things out before I buy it! Can’t wait to test out the new iPad Air.

  6. I think its a great idea to go to the store and touch and try out technology. It takes both the fear and mystery out of using it, and a great clerk will point out some things you may not find out online.

  7. I used to work in IT so I have no issues buying online. My mother however is not very tech savy so I always take her to the store to take things for a test drive. It is better to try it out for a little bit than to order it and realize you do not like it.

  8. Catchy title and love the quote image! 🙂 I like looking at electronics in person before I decide to purchase them. I did this recently with a new camera lens I purchased online for cheaper than in the store.

  9. There is not much in the world that I would buy without “touching” it first. I guess that is a sign of my age. This is a great post!

  10. I am all electronic gadgeted out – my husband has bought me within this year a laptop, iPad and a iPhone. Love them all! So glad he bought them, for now this is all I need!

  11. I’m with you Janeane! It is important to go and try out the gadgets you want to buy! I would like to go and touch an iPhone 5S.

  12. I always like to see in person when I am researching a product I want. You are right that if it doesn’t fit you – you will be disappointed

  13. I love playing with the new tablets. Because they’re still relatively new to the market there are distinct difference between the different brands and I JUST HAVE to go touch it.

  14. You are so right! There are some things you just need to physically check out before buying online without ever having touched or seen them. I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been disappointed when something arrives in the mail looking nothing like it’s fabulous picture!

  15. My husband is definitely a “got to go to the store” technology purchaser! I’m much more comfortable buying those things online than he is! I think I’m okay with it because I do a lot of research before I buy anything?…and he usually is the gadget buyer anyways! lol

  16. It is fun to head to the store and really pick up something new and learn all you can from it. I think it also takes the confusion out of it too.

  17. I have to admit when it comes to buy a new phone I do like to go to the shop and have a play with it before I buy 😉 x

Tell me what you think.
