GigaParts Store Tour, Ham Radio + Computers, They Have It ALL!

GigaParts Store Tour, Ham Radio + Computers, They Have It ALL!

I had the pleasure of going to GigaParts this weekend and meeting all the folks there, browse their store, make some videos, interview some people and even experience some of Huntsville Alabama with the ones that know it best. Plenty of places to have fun, good food and drinks, NOBODY IS MEAN in this state. I present to you this store walkthrough in an effort to enlighten you of what their store is like. I had no idea that had no much stuff in their store. And the staff is super friendly and helpful. People walked in with questions and walked out with purchases. That’s an A+ from me 🙂

    Great place. When I was in Huntsville during 2002 to 2007 I bought parts to build two computers and some low band transceivers.

    You would be better off buying computer parts at Micro Center- just compare the prices for yourself before buying!!!

    I would love to walk in with 50 grand and just start buying everything I’ve always wanted. Mark W9AXX

    do you guys think they’ll loan me the car for the weekend?

  6. William Marín on April 3, 2022 at 9:18 pm

    Wooow !
    That was like being in heaven.
    Online shopping does not compare with that…
    Do you knew that we don’t have a single store like that here in the Tango India region?
    Thanks for the video !!

    Eric, either switch to 1080/60FPS or SLOW the pan down, the camera is not as fast as the human eye and the pan is just a blur.

  8. PrecisionGroupYT on April 3, 2022 at 9:22 pm

    Ok Eric so when is Gigaparts going to open a store in Florida?? Thanks for the video!! 73’s K4BBC

  9. Mike McDonald on April 3, 2022 at 9:24 pm

    how did you walk out of there without a bunch of stuff LOL

  10. Bart VanAllen on April 3, 2022 at 9:25 pm

    Although a bit of a long drive, I used to visit and buy at the old AES in Las Vegas, which GigaParts now owns. I have been planning on driving down there for awhile now – and this vid is getting my drive to drive there going – Thanks Eric.

    I hear the Boogie box but don’t see it?

  12. Портал Снабжения on April 3, 2022 at 9:27 pm

    The big problem of GigaParts is their final non-friendly prices that not competition to another wenders. It will be better to work on the price than regular advertising

  13. Cathryn Mataga on April 3, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    With retail, you need to stay organized, which these guys look like they’re doing. I have HamRadioOutlet near me, not as much stock at this, but at least has some equipment and antennas.

  14. foxman362 on April 3, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    We need one theses in utah in ogden area.

  15. sean juth on April 3, 2022 at 9:28 pm

    Hey! Your in our neck of the woods! Let use know when you return to Huntsville and we will listen for you! 73

    This store is so cool. Even beats the Geek Squad stuff.

  17. Ribby Robby on April 3, 2022 at 9:31 pm

    5:35 The 3 Lenovo monitors were specially made for T-Mobile by Lenovo in the call centers because you can install a VGA cable and Display cable into one monitor for a split screen/dual

    The guy that helped me find my mobo the guy ya know the kid with the orange shirt thanks for helping me I built my pc

  19. AE1TP A92GW Tom on April 3, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    As much as everything is online these days, a good visit to a store like Gigaparts is great, wish they had more locations. Cheers n 73s AE1TP

  20. Bo Brewer on April 3, 2022 at 9:33 pm

    This is not criticism of Eric, but that store is crappy. It’s junk shop. I buy a lot from Gigaparts and am very happy. I’d be very disappointed if I traveled to visit that place.

  21. Ravenbar's Repairs on April 3, 2022 at 9:35 pm

    Glad there’s not one of those around here… My bank accounts would be well beyond empty

  22. Bình Minh on April 3, 2022 at 9:36 pm

    Thật tiện lợi. Ở quốc gia của tôi, để mua được những thứ này phải order chúng từ hoa kỳ, và phải chịu những khoản thuế khủng khiếp. Mỗi chiếc máy thu phát trị giá bằng cả 4 tháng tiền lương gộp lại là một vấn đề nan giải.
    Ở quốc gia tôi quá khó để chơi ham radio trừ khi bạn quá nhiều tiền.

  23. Michael Mandeville on April 3, 2022 at 9:37 pm

    The nearest store being 3 hours away is the only reason I have money in my bank account.

  24. Patrick Baer on April 3, 2022 at 9:37 pm

  25. ED Lapinski on April 3, 2022 at 9:39 pm

    Sorry Eric I have been using HRO for over 20 years but thanks for the show! KV1P

  26. tullyman82 on April 3, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    Awesome store I’ve purchased radios from you guys Icom 7000 and 2 Kenwood tmv71A’s.

  27. Patrick Gerth on April 3, 2022 at 9:40 pm

    They got all the computer and ham equipment you could ever want. Nice! I wish we had a store in Indianapolis, IN that you could just walk in and get parts and accessories. Fry’s is on it’s way out. 🤨

  28. Jon Lawrence on April 3, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    haha, I love that, we want gaming computers LOL.
    No, what we want it powerful computers that will run everything we want while at the same time not putting out any RF noise 😉

  29. William Peacock on April 3, 2022 at 9:44 pm

    They need to put a store in the south east part of Georgia we have alot of hams operator and we would love to have GigaParts in my area. 73 AE4OY WILLIAM Peacock EM-81UF

    "Perhipperals"? 😉 Picked up an MFJ 160-6m doublet from these guys online about a week ago. Best price on the net, hands down. It’s cool to see what their brick-and-mortar store looks like. Makes me wish I lived closer!

  31. Tom W5VLT on April 3, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    Very disappointed with Giga. As a new radio operator recently I had been monitoring prices of big dealers approaching Black Friday sales.
    On midnight during the week as anticipated, HRO implemented their sales… and shortly thereafter, Giga lowers their prices to match HRO penny for penny, not a penny more.

    Then followed the others like DX Engineering.

    Because HRO focused on specific models, those same “copied” HRO makes/models’s discounts were the only ones seen across the industry.

    So as a new operator, HRO who set the discounts, got all my Black Friday business, which included all of complete base station and mobile station systems in entirety (from antennas and coax to transceivers and power supplies, and all accessories), plus 4 diff HT’s.

    On top of that, when presented with the entirety of the order for all that, HRO offered me a package discount atop the “BF sales discounts” while Giga’s rep said “no discount and just order all your stuff online.”

    As a new operator starting out, who initially dropped close to 5 figures and I’m sure many purchases to come over future years… Giga was a bust, and HRO made a relationship.

  32. demizer1968 on April 3, 2022 at 9:47 pm

    So far, this is the only place I’ve bought new radios (except for the G90). Excellent customer service and reasonable prices.

  33. celest hodge on April 3, 2022 at 9:48 pm

    never thought you would be/come to huntsville

  34. Rooster Sofer on April 3, 2022 at 9:50 pm

    What’s the problem here all this advertising and you don’t have a phone number?

  35. DAVID GREGORY KERR on April 3, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Raspberry Pi is so yesterday UDOO RYZEN Bolt V1000 Maker Board SBC is the new king 10x more powerful than a Raspberry Pi IV.

  36. Davey Crockett on April 3, 2022 at 9:52 pm

    Why would I buy from Gigaparts when their prices are consistently higher than ham radio outlet and dxengineering. Just look at the price of the Yaesu FT-891!!!! Case in point!!!!

  37. inma truckyo on April 3, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    if you see my backorder, it would be nice to get one day

  38. Adam Kr on April 3, 2022 at 9:54 pm

    Good chatting 2day !!

  41. Mark Tate on April 3, 2022 at 9:57 pm

    Damn… If I was to combine every radio store in Australia that sold ham radios it would not be half the size of that store, we have nothing here. We have one dealer in Sydney who is a real dickhead and you have to climb over boxes and crap to even get into the tiny little shit hole he calls a shop or another dealer in Melbourne that is 12 hours away from me, a few others that sell a bit of ham gear on the side and that is it.

    Australia is the land of empty.

  42. Travis Bruehl on April 3, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    What an amazing place! The best part about shopping there is that you KNOW you are getting a fair price in the actual store – vs having to search online for the best deal. Sure wish they had more locations!

  43. Scott Hill on April 3, 2022 at 9:59 pm

    Glad you had a great time brother! Looking forward to the videos. 73 de KI5HII

    review, our EOC has a Icom 718 and 2- Icom 2730a’s. I liked the 2730A so much after programming it, I bought one for myself. Their sales staff is excellent. I’ve dealt with Candace over the phone, so helpful and knowledgeable.
