    Honestly, if you are buying anything that costs over $100 in a physical store, you should insist on being able to open it and test it prior to paying for it. If the store refuses, then take your business elsewhere.

    Prior to paying for it? yeah, most stores will refuse that. I am sure they would have no aversion to you paying for it and opening it on the spot. If you didn't get what you were supposed to, they'd legally have to take it back. But too many people would be opening products jst to "test" them and then deciding they don't want it. Things would either go up in price or that store would go out of business. I mean would you buy an open box item for retail price even if it was literally opened 15 minutes ago.

    Situations like this is why places like Best Buy now ask for an ID when you return stuff... and people still complain.
