hi all! i'm looking at buying a refurbished antec 1100 on antec.com, my concern is that they are really strict on warranties or that they don't hold up as well. i wonder if anyone here has purchased directly from them and if so did you pay a shipping fee? the 1100 shows no shipping fee but obviously can hit you at the tail end. i just want a decent deal without the fear that it could go awry. thanks for the thoughts!

this brand new with full warranty for 99.00$ and the refurbished for 70.00$ http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

right new with $10 shipping or saving 40 bucks for some possible scratches. but is going directly through them a good idea? have they been reputable when buying used from the site?

I have purchased items directly from antec.com in the past with no issues whatsoever. However, as scout_03 points out, you should shop around to price compare.

They have to identify "B" stock or refurbs, if they are selling that way.

They are trustworthy, in my experience.
