Thanks. Got the WD 2.5 that was posted a few days ago from BH. Installed and initialized. Works great. The computer recognizes it as a Sandisk. Weird
Do I need a mounting bracket or just the ssd 2.5 drive?

pro -
- top notch 144hz ips screen, excellent color/contrast, fast pixel response time (unlike the laughably slow 25ms panel in the new Asus TUF)
- material/design, not a bulky machine at all
- it's fast - no thermal throttling, 9750h is one of the fastest mobile cpu for gaming based on single thread performance, and 1660ti is just a 2060 without raytracing, so you'll max out pretty much any game at 1080p/60hz
- 3USB/HDMI/DP/USB-C with TB/Cardreader

con-
- out of box storage is limited to a single 256gb m.2 boot drive only, the 2.5inch expansion slot is empty, so get yourself another 1tb ssd.
- rgb lighting for the keyboard is zone-based, not per-key based.
Came here to find out if there is an empty 2.5" slot

Is there any type of restriction regarding the physical size of the 2.5" drive? I know some high volume drives are slightly thicker than others and may cause problems. I would prefer to use my existing 1TB hdd for storage rather than a 1TB ssd (don't even have one).

Well I struck out due to cruddy employees.

I asked a worker at the electronics desk if he could get one for me. He says "Oh the gaming laptop, yeah we have those right over here." He opens the cage and tries handing me a Lenovo. I said "no, I am trying to buy the HP Omen". He says "sorry about that. Here is our other gaming laptop" and tries handing me an MSI. I again told him "uh, no, I'm trying to get the HP Omen". He says those are the only two gaming laptops he has. I tell him I see it on the shelf and ask if he would check in back. He goes to the back and comes out with yet another incorrect item (I think this time it wasn't even a laptop...it might have been a monitor).

We then walk over to the laptop and he types in the model number on his personal phone to bring it up in the Walmart app to show me that it's only sold by third-party sellers which means they don't sell it anymore. I ask him to please check the store's handheld scanners because those should be more accurate. He tells me that employees don't have scanners like that and only use their phones to check for stock. I ask if he would use the computer instead. He says only his manager can scan from the computer. So I asked if he could have the manager check for me.

He gets the manager who comes out and immediately tells me that they don't have any of the laptop. I ask if she could check with the store scanner. She takes one over to the laptops (after the first employee says store scanners don't exist?) and scans a different laptop to show me that there are none in stock. I told her that's the wrong laptop and point to the correct one. She scans the right one which shows FOUR in stock on her handheld scanner. She immediately says that they never received four of this laptop even though they're in the system and that it's been wrong in the system since before the pandemic and she hasn't been able to get it removed.

Those employees' brains are pre-programmed to say no, so no matter what you say, they will be adamant and make up excuses to give you negative answers. They have to physically scan those laptops to put them into the inventory because those laptops are high-value items. They also have to physically scan them during weekly inventory count and physically put the price tags onto each laptop's box, including when the price drops. Any laptop that is not received will be put into the vendor claim as missing item and will never show up on the inventory.

You can report any employee that lies to you to the Walmart Corporate and the Walmart Global Ethics. They will open a case and investigate. Give them the employee's full name, if you know it or just a brief description, the store's address, and the date and time. They are able to pull the security camera footage to identify the employee if you don't know the employee's name.

Give them some time to investigate. They have security cameras everywhere in the store. If they can confirm that you were there, they will reach out to you to make it right. I managed to get a laptop this way last time when an employee lied to me that it was out of stock. Good luck hug

So I contacted Walmart through the link. Their response blew my mind

Hi,

Thank you for contacting us today, my name is Kevin and I'll provide you assistance today.

I've reviewed the item you are looking for, the Omen by HP 15.6" Gaming Laptop, Intel Core i7-9750H, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1660 Ti 6GB and I want to let you know that this item is only sold through Walmart from third party marketplace sellers and one or more of these sellers may be using the Walmart store located at (your store) as a fulfillment center to deliver the items later. However I regret to say that we are unable to honor previous offers or products sold at the store and I can only suggest you to purchase the item from the Walmart page listed above. Please accept my deepest apologies for the inconvenience.

If you have additional questions about your order, please reply to this email and I'll be happy to assist.

I hope you'll have a wonderful and productive day, it was a pleasure assisting you!

Sincerely yours,

Kevin E
There is no way that's a thing right? A third party seller having their items come up as in-stock from an in-store scanner at the Walmart price of $549 even though their price online is different?

I am pretty sure he misunderstood you or the context of your complaint is worded wrongly. The current link of that item on walmart.com does show third-party sellers only. What did you write to them? Did you specifically state that the item is in stock at your local Walmart store and provided the store address, the employee's name. etc.? Copy and paste what you wrote here or PM to me if you don't want to post it here.

It will take a few days for them to pull the security camera footage to verify the incident and that you were there, so an instant reply from them like this is not expected.

Pretty much exactly what I typed in this thread. I gave store number, store address, first employee's name, and then just said his manager because I didn't look at her name tag. I said that I was physically in that store and the manager scanned the tag of the display with the in-store scanner which showed 4 in stock and that it wasn't her phone using the app for online inventory.
