And I guess you like orange rims too!!
Newegg has a great website but their prices haven't generally been competitive with Amazon or other sites for quite some time. As a result I haven't bought anything from them in years.
I just ordered and received a USB 3 hard drive dock with offline cloning for 26 bucks last week from them with free shipping.
I will still use them I guess until I get screwed which hasn't happened yet for about 13 years maybe. I have a poor memory and I cant remember why.
Who cares who owns the company? Chinese investors aren't stupid enough to make changes that will drive away customers.
^ this! Since 2012 I have been buying from amazon. I just switched back to newegg because of tax and their exclusive offers here and there. Newegg's price is about the same as amazon. I spent about $1100 worth of stuff this year. I would have to pay $82.5 in tax if I went thru amazon. Newegg also has offer with $25 dollars statement credit with amex for purchase over $200. I have 3 cards so it saved me additional $75.
In my case...ordering thru newegg, total cost is $1025, amazon would be $1182.5. Newegg it is. Plus I dont want to see newegg gone...we had such a good history. never had a single problem with newegg RMA or shipping.
Sorry if this question has already been asked, but how likely is it that typical PC parts from Newegg will be fake or gray-market, etc? I know they were selling fake Intel processors years ago (at least according to Wikipedia).
Using PCHound shows newegg has best price for 80% of my next computer desired parts. And Amazon isn't exactly reliable on what sellers will still be around 6 months from now. I wouldn't mind buying clothing on Amazon which I can return 48hours after opening. Computer parts which might break 6months or 9months later... I want a real store.
Was it actually items sold "by Newegg"? They have a Marketplace now with 3rd party sellers, so that might be part of the issue.
Who would have thought? A Chinese owned company selling computer parts all made in China! Makes sense to me.
I tell you what though, I don't like their site anymore. I liked it when parts sold were from newegg only. Now you have all kinds of companies trying to slip in there and highball you or parts ship from the other side of the world.
Yep, it was actually newegg selling them, and somebody from [H] who discovered it.
What a better place to buy online? i ussualy just check newegg or amazon. i used to check tigerdirect but they always came up more expensive
Newegg is celebrating its 16th anniversary now with a big sale. I didn't have the patience to get past page two, but I'll bet anyone willing to invest a few hours of their time could save a dollar or two off a coffee maker. Or maybe a juicer. At least $0.50 off a light bulb?
The one item I was interested in increased by about $20 (nearly 20%) overnight.
I still use newegg if I'm not in a rush (a couple bucks cheaper, sometimes free shipping, and no tax), or amazon if I need or want something faster. Newegg is still fine, just doesn't have the edge it use to have.
I use whichever is cheapest and a lot of times now that isn't Newegg. I get spammed daily by Newegg sales emails to the point I don't click on them anymore but I usually just check the daily Flash deals..
One good thing about NewEgg is they dont charge tax in my state like Amazon does.
NewEgg is still my go to store since it doesn't tax in NY. I just bought a Corsair Void Wireless headset from them and since their warehouse is located in NJ, I got it the next day. However, I also have a Microcenter nearby and buy all the essential hardware (Motherboard and CPU) from there since they have crazy deals.
NE is usually an emergency back-up when I can't find something elsewhere. I can't even remember the last time I ordered anything from them, though. They're rarely if ever the best price and it's not like they have usually have items that Amazon doesn't. Typically when anything is in high demand they're also the last ones to get more stock.
Between Amazon and my local Microcenter store, I'm usually covered.
