They have great service and all, but does it bother anyone else that as soon as a product starts selling well they jack the prices up?

For example the Arctic cooling freezer 7 pro was a great deal at 29 bucks, great cooling for the price, so a lot of people bought it. Since it was selling so well they jacked the price up to 60 bucks! You can still find it other places for like 25-30.

I have seen this also happen with certain video cards and CPUs. BLAH ON THEM!

Thats just the thing though, for 60 bucks you can get a cooler that completely demolishes the AF7P, its whole selling point was good performance/dollar. Now thats gone... seems weird to me, but maybe people are still buying them... for 60 bucks... wtf

ahh Econ 101. glad that's over.


but yea to the poster, it sucks when trying to get the best deal, but that's how EVERYTHING is.

-c2d cpu is way more expensive then AMD but people still buy it..
-apple iphone is starting at $500, because they know people will still buy it for that.


that's the way the world works.

the G.Skill F2-6400PHU2-2GBHZ 2gig DDr2 800 used to be 240 then it went up to 309 then back down to 269.99 now
