Buying appliances online, pros/cons

My microwave oven fell from the table and broke. The technician said the board plate of oven needs to be changed and it is almost going take the same price as the microwave oven itself. There is clearance sale going on in Best brand appliances and I have started considering buying a new oven ( Best Microwave Appliance Vaughan, Toronto | Best Brand Appliance ) . Which among this oven are the best? Are online products good in quality?

The brand name appliances sold online should be the same as the ones sold in stores. Choose one or two that meet your needs and check the internet for product reviews.

Here's a trusted website that provides reviews for microwaves and other products. microwaves search results - CNET

With the exception of a dishwasher, I purchased all of my appliances (and plumbing fixtures, for that matter) from online retailers. What I would suggest is first looking at store models, though, if for no other reason than to gauge aesthetics and take measurements to insure it will fit in the desired location.

Shopping in general has sure changed from the old days! We recently completed a brand new kitchen and every single thing we bought was online. Wouldn't have it any other way.

I buy so much online and they are the same products sold in stores. My big TV from Amazon, since I had prime it was delivered, unboxed and setup, effortless.

I even bought my mattress online. Many companies now offer 100 day trials where they will send someone to pick it up if you don't like it.

What I guess I'm saying, is that ordering online from reputable places is a great way to go!

And remember, if you use your credit card, you also have the backup of their service.

It is easier to order online. No need to drive to different stores. You can read lots of real user reviews and have more products to choose from.

Prices are also usually better. I much prefer online shopping. Amazon in particular.

I just buy from Amazon. No fuss when you need to return something. Just save the original box.
