    I was looking for some opinions about new egg from my fellow forum members. Have you guys bought from there? What was your story/experience? Do you plan on buying again? [​IMG]

    I just wanted to get everything in perspective before I make a purchase of 1000 dollars. Thanks[​IMG]

    I'll be suprised if you find anymore than a few members who will say that newegg in general is not good/great/excellent.

    Been using them since they first started in CA. Never had a problem.

    They've since expanded and now have a distribution site in NJ as well. Unfortunately, that was bad news for me as that meant I now had to pay state sales tax. oh well, still fairly good prices especially with the ever changing Free Shipping and Mail in Rebate items.

    I've never had need to use their Customer Service dept, but I hear it's very good.

    Unless you live far away from one of their distribution points, regular shipping usually takes only a few days.

    That's where I have gotten most of my parts for about 6 years or more. No complaints.

    I know this is a rare case. I personally had a problem with new Egg with a Hard Drive that i baught and was shipped here. I pluged in the hard drive and i couldn't get it to work. I sent it back and they gave me my money back (it was with in the 30 day period). My friend also had a problem with a hard drive he bought from new egg. Other than that one hard drive, my whole computer is built from parts from them. So yea if you do have a problem, their costumer service is one of the best that I know of.

    Excellent customer service. I've built 3 home PCs with almost every part from Newegg. Prices are good sometimes the lowest but often the convenience of purchasing all from one source is worth a few extra dollars.

    I hardly think that a bad hard drive is newegg's fault... If you received that same faulty drive from another vendor, it wouldn't be anything else.

    I use the egg quite often and I have always been very pleased with their service. I have had to RMA a few items however it was no problem.
