  • Newegg tour

    For those of you who use Newegg for their computer purchases, here is an interesting article of a tour of their facilities. I've been using them for years so I got a kick out of it.

            Hmmm, looks interesting.
            I'll give er a read after work tonight.
            I've loved newegg for quite some time now but I have a new favorite who's taken the top spot: zipzoomfly.com - same stuff, a bit cheaper and free 2nd day shipping!

              I've used both. NewEgg has better selection and I'll go to them if zipzoomfly doensn't have it.

                  If your package arrives all beat up and packaged crappy, maybe Anand packaged it?

                    That's a pretty cool tour, I've used Newegg for all my computer needs, because they get the items to you fast and they are inexpensive on their products.

                      Well, at least used to get your items to you quickly. Don't get me wrong, they'll still have it shipped in an timely manner, it's just that UPS is not as dependable as Fed-Ex and Fed-Ex was typically 2 day whereas UPS is 3-5.

                        I havent had any item delivered by UPS yet. Although I did notice that they've opened a warehouse in New Jersey. So East Coasters can get some pretty fast service at times.

                          Well UPS just broke a 21" monitor I mailed to someone who bought it, so I'm definitely not happy with UPS.

                            I looked into this. Newegg did not voluntarily switch from FedEx to UPS; their FedEx account was suspended due to "fraudulent activity". This could mean any number of things were occuring, but obviously something serious enough was happening for FedEx to notice and bring down the hammer.
