I'm working on putting together a new computer, and I need to find a good place from which to buy the various bits. I've read both good and not-so-good reviews of Newegg... what's the general consensus? Also, are the extended warranties they offer worth purchasing?

For me, no.

No to Newegg, or no to warranties? And in either case, is there a particular reason?

newegg is great overall.

I have made MANY purchases from them and not once got a defective component. They also ship FAST. Never bother with their expidited packing because it will make no real difference in delivery time unless you are shipping same day.

I have heard some disgruntled things about their RMA policy but never anything really concrete, just someone heard from someone else that they give you a runaround. Since I have never had to return a part I got from them I can't provide a critique of this firsthand.

Generally what I will do is check newegg's prices, then go to www.pricewatch.com and compare. I will never buy from a pricewatch vendor that has a rating lower than 3.5 stars and I don't feel really comfortable with it unless they have at least 4. If Newegg is within $10 of the best deal from a reputable vendor on Pricewatch, I go with Newegg.

Good luck and happy hunting.
