    Anyone get their Steam Deck ordered?

    All versions, including the 64GB version have a removable SSD that can be changed out and upgraded. That's what I did as well - I got the base 64GB version and replaced the SSD with a Samsung PM991a 1TB 2230 drive. Super quick process and very easy to do:

    Both in my case. Physical Blu-ray still has a place for people that want the absolute best quality, but Plex makes it convenient to have the library nice and organized all in one place. Some folks also prefer ripping their BR movies and leave them as is, uncompressed so those files will of...

    You are incorrect - as previously mentioned, the items not purchased in the shuffle are dropped and are made available to the "public" to buy, which in turn allows bots to buy them immediately. Plenty of us have notifications on from our Discords and see this happen all the time. ^ This. Exactly.

    Johnx64 is right though. People that have no intention on buying shuffle the items should not enter and instead should leave it for people who will actually buy. Newegg is heavily botted and the problem with winning the shuffle and not buying is that you are basically guaranteeing a bot will get...

    Nice, I didn't know that about the eBay store with the fees, it will be worth it in my situation so I'll look into that before I list them. Thanks again!

    Am I about to get scammed?

    That makes sense. Thanks for all the tips, much appreciated. I have some older GPUs to sell after upgrading to a new one. Normally eBay would be my choice since I have more history there compared to Heat but I haven't sold there in while. Hearing all the horror stories on eBay is a bit scary but...

    Am I about to get scammed?

    Thanks for this - very helpful info. Aside from taking pictures, would it help and is it necessary to record video as well, like some have mentioned? Can something like that be used if a buyer were to do something sketchy and file a claim?

    Someone correct me if I'm wrong but if I recall, in the past when BBY had a console drop, they didn't have a GPU drop the same day, so we're likely to get that next week.

    Things happen. It is what it is. I'm fairly confident it will lead to another rejection in the end. I've personally helped others in the community get cards and even purchased cards to send to people at face value, just to help out so I don't feel bad about it at all.

    This is definitely worth trying, YMMV depending on who you get. I tried this recently with one of my older notifications that I "missed" and was rejected but it seems to work for some, so it doesn't hurt to try.

    This. The 3060 Ti and 3070 on Amazon were both address errors, which is normal for Amazon. Amazon, like Newegg is so heavily botted, it's tough to score a card from either of them the "regular" way.

    Interesting thought if this was factored in. I just checked, and I've had 10 orders in the last 120 days. I've "won" 3 Newegg shuffles so far.

    Updated to make it look a bit more fake. Side note for people in general: In the many times I tried, I did notice mobile was faster vs. using a computer with web browser.

    Zotac drops are at different times, they are kind of all over the place. They just dropped and it's live now though, about 7:38 PM PST. They have 3070's and 3080's in stock, assuming you can get the pages to load and check out.
