Guess its where they make their big profits by snookering unsuspecting customers.
Their profit margins on big ticket items is very small, in some cases nonexistent. The accessories (cables, etc) is where they make all the money.
Those $150 "premium quality" HDMI cables cost less than $10 for the store to obtain from their supplier. HUGE profit margin there.
