Looks like they have a physical location in Lenox Square in Atlanta.

The business used to be called Marchisini. I got a hit on this webpage. Trying to go to a live page brings a database error. The site is designed in exactly the same way. That store had a physical location in Atlantic Station.

Yelp has a page for the business that was claimed and you can see pictures.

At the prices they are selling, they will lose money and no sane business likes to lose money (and an outfit of this nature by definition cannot afford loss leaders like some big businesses do to get traffic ..) , enough said.

He posted me from craigslist (houston) and said I can come to Atlanta to pick up.
I'm going to say this is a scam. Red alerts going off, broken English. I'll pass.

Just like a entire case of AMD GPUs from 6700xt to 6900xt. Hard to move them when the cheapest card is $950. Nvidia cards are still flying off.

For the sake of pure bordom, I did digging. Found the listing for Lenox square, but looking at the Lenox square map, stopminers does not come up

Guys, Can we agree that with so many honest (I didn't say, "they never gouge you ...) websites, that there is no need to spend more time and energy on this site?

About 10 years ago, I used the website resellerratings.com to compare ratings and prices for some PC hardware I was wanting to buy. I compiled a list of ratings and prices from different stores, then did a sort. And whaddya know, the best-rated stores had higher prices than the worst-rated stores. IIRC, the difference was about 10%. The crap-rated stores do need to charge lower prices, so people will put up with the shipping problems, poor customer services, etc.

Of course, back then Newegg was a top-rated store on resellerratings. The life time rating is 4.84/5. But for the last six months, their score was only 1.58/5. Shameful. In comparison, Best Buy is 3.77/5 and Microcenter is 2.25/5.

Wow! How the mighty have fallen. I would of never thought that Newegg and most especially, Microcenter would had fallen that far a year ago.

Well you know, people like to reviewbomb stuff and if they can't get what they want when they want at the rpice they want, guess what.

My experience overall with Resellerratings.com is that the ratings reflect issues overall. In any case, we all know that the Newegg of today is a greedy bloodsucking thing, not like the old Newegg that we all loved so much. The ratings fall just confirm what we already know.

I used to spend at least $1K every year with them, some years 2-3 times that much. And I still like their user reviews, which are better than most. But to hell with their crappy bundles.B&H Photo/Video and EVGA.com have waitlists. Why can't the Egg do the same? And is there any justification for those bundles, except to increase profits?

Eh, Micro Center probably getting review bombed by the same people who think they are the ones scalping. I've had nothing but fantastic service over the last decade with Micro Center. But hey, I am just one guy. That's my best guess on what's going on. Could also be a reflection on how different stores handled daily card shipments and lines, etc.

I agree. Probably a lot of pissed off people standing in line not getting GPUs I bet.

Just watch Microcenter's Facebook for a day and you'll see why their ratings are poor. Every post they make gets hundreds of "I CaNt BuY a GpU!!!! shAmE oN U, i wILl neVVR shOp @ uR stORe aGin" replies.
The reality of Microcenter is that the store is the same now as it was 15 years ago. Maybe better.

EHHH! MicroCenter is mother fucking fine. The guys in the store are super nice and helpful and polite (St.Davids, PA). It's a shame they are getting review-bombed, but that's the internet of today for ya. I've had nothing but great customer service from the guys at MicroCenter when buying this and that.
Comparison to BestBuy: this was a few years back, when RX 580s/Vegas were in stock. I came in, looked at their "Gaming" section, and, upon seeing no graphics cards, I went to the customer service desk, and asked "Where are the graphics cards?". The fucking guy didn't even know what the term "graphics card" meant. He had to be helped by someone else, who happened to stand within earshot, who actually helped me get what I wanted at the time. What a travesty, BestBuy.

Moral of the story: Don't trash MicroCenter as they seem to be our only hope. :)

Then I have to give up all hope. I'm like many hours' drive from the closest MC. What with gas money, probably a motel overnight so I can be at the store really early, several visits to MickeyD, may as well pay the Man.
