I use <A HREF="http://www.pricewatch.com" target="_new"> Pricewatch</A> just to get the lowest price and i usually shop at cdw or insight. My work alows me to buy on the corp. account so i get a pretty good deal.

<A HREF="http://www.1steweb.net" target="_new">1stEWeb.net</A> actually had great customer service. I'm not sure how the price would compare, but when I needed to change my order for my first built machine, I received a very prompt response. I think they would get 4 out of 5 stars from me.

I have bought several components from them, and I'm very satisfied with their prices as well as their services. They also have some that sell with free FEDEX Saver shipping.

Newegg is decent. I ordered most of the components for my pc from them; Service was prompt and I had no problems.

newegg isn't the BEST but they are pretty good. I'd say www.mwave.com is also pretty good, I remember ordering my first computer from them, pentium 120 with 16 megs of ram.....oh those were the beautiful days of 2 meg video cards, isa sound cards, and 2 gig hard drives were "more space then you'll ever need". Not to long ago I threw my old mile long 28.8 isa modem into the pool like a frisbee, then stomped on it with my shoes *grin*

I can't believe nobody has mentioned TCWO.com If you're looking for cheap shipping, ($6.95, total, for up to 150lbs of stuff) that's the place to go. I bought my mobo and my RAM from Newegg and just about everything else from TWCO. Newegg has better selection and, yes, some parts are free shipping. The one drawback I've run across with the Epox mobo I bought there is that Newegg says it doesn't warrant the product, the manufacturer does. Epox says they only warrant their products if you buy them directly from them. That's their official policies, anyway. I've heard that Newegg doesn't necessarily act that way, though, and will replace parts as needed.

TCWO definitely has good technical service, too. Again, if you're willing to get what they have instead of choosing every exact peice from the whole range of possibilities, you can get a complete system, pay only 7 bucks shipping, competitive prices (they're often the price leader on pricewatch.com for AMD CPUs), and get good support down the road.

Man, that brings back memories...my first PC was a Gateway 2000 386-25. It had 4 MB of *system* RAM, 512KB video RAM, and a 120MB hard drive. It was extremely impressive to see the whole screen scroll down faster than you could read it when I did a "DIR" command. Hehe :)

I'd say that's a pretty significant issue...the last thing I want is to be in between 2 companies trying to pass the buck regarding a warranty.
October 8, 2001 11:52:39 PM

True, but he didn't say that Newegg tried to pass it off on Epox. It's a single event, and didn't even happen. Might be an error, who knows.

I bought a sound card from Newegg a week ago, and it was great. Best price, pretty quick shipping, good service (replied to an email in under two hours!!).

I've purchased several things from newegg and have been very pleased. The IBM HD was $50 cheaper than mwave, with reasonable shipping and great service. Newegg also upgraded the shipping to 2nd day FOR FREE! That's good service. btw, I also called them once and the customer service rep. was excellent.

ZBuy appears to have free shipping but I've never used them.

Here is one Newegg customer that had a bad experience. It looks like they shipped him a refurbished MB instead of a new one. You may have to scroll down towards the bottom as the post didn't start out talking about Newegg.

Yes, TCWO is the one has cheaper S/H although their price sometimes are not (I've bought some from them). Unfortunately, I live on West coast and it's in Florida (if I remember correctly) and my merchandise would takes as long as 10 days to get to my house.

You mean you had trouble finding a single person who had a bad experience at Newegg? :)

i am still talking about it because i am planning on purchasing a large ammount of items from them, and want to know as much as i can about this company.
it sounds to me like i would not have much of a problem with them, so i think i am going to buy my stuff from them.
but as for buying ram, i think i am going to buy it from www.crucial.com because they have cheaper costs, and free 2nd day shipping!

Nice thing about Newegg is they dont quote the lowest price and then rip you on the shipping, nor do they force you to buy a crummy heatsink/fan combo for a fantastic over-inflated price in order to by a mobo/cpu combo. They are straight up and honest with no gimmicks and I really appreciate it. They have my business, and as long as they continue with their upfront policies, they will continue to have it.

forgot to add this,
does anyone know if i can just find out where they are, and go there to buy it, forget the shipping, just go buy it?
i mean, if they are really close, then why pay for the shipping????????and have to endure the wait, and know that my stuff is being moved around by people i dont know?
hehe
jsut a thought..
if newegg has a place where i can buy in person....that would be sweet.....

Now if they would just get the dang Epox EP-8KHA+ in stock, I'd be all set! :(

actually, i forgot to post it here, but i found out, that unfortunately you cant...it says in their faq's that there is a place, but if you go there, you will just be sitting in their foyer, and that you would not be able to pick up merchandise...it is too bad because it really wouldnt be THAT bad to drive there...
and it would save me the shipping and the wait....
but DAMN..
that would be sweet...and i might just go there one of these fine days to see what it is like there..
i wish it was so, but oh well......

I ordered a athlon , motherboard and memory from newegg..all in seperate orders and had no trouble at all with them....their least expensive shipping is very fast.
i used to deal with mwave and again have no problems with them either, their return policy is great and so are their prices....but lately, newegg has offered better deals.

if you are worried about ordering on the net...you always have tccomputers.com and aberdeeninc.com which are two of the largest computer dealers in the usa...their prices are alot higher,but you can trust them.

all four in my opinion are A+++ suppliers!
