I have purchased from them a number of times over the years and always had very good experiences. They are where I start for anything computer related.

My wife builds/services computers and deals with them all the time, and has for years.

Built the computer I am on now from parts from Newegg. Had a problem with the CPU from shipping, and they sent another right out.

Another good experience here. I bought my son a computer from here for christmas. I bought it over a month ahead of time and the p/s was bad. When I called customer service they said deal directly with the manufacturer (since purchase was over 30 days ago) and call back if I'm not satisfied. I contacted the p/s maker and told them I got it from Newegg and they prompty sent out a upgraded p/s (higher wattage) at no cost and I returned the defective one with their provided shipping label.

MC for motherboards and processors. Newegg for everything else. No one can touch MCs motherboard and CPU combos.

NewEgg is good stuff. They used to have store fronts, don't know if they still do.

ALWAYS check any and every purchase decision against Amazon. Far more times than not Amazon is less expensive and free shipping.

Have ordered from them for years, had one disappointment recently though. I haven't had to return anything in years, but I bought a router but decided I didn't need it anymore. Upon seeking a rma# for refund, they told me I would be charged a stocking fee even though it was NIB. Other than that they're great. They have a dist in TN, and with std ground ups shipping it arrives in 2 days tops.

Every system I have built over the past 10 yrs has been built with Newegg.com parts. Never had a problem

NewEgg is great as everyone agrees to. Prices are good and they ship quickly.

If you are looking to *build* a whole computer and put it together yourself you can use NewEgg and maybe a couple of other places to source parts from. I've been building my computers since 1993 and have stopped due to the hassle and time sink.

I started using http://www.cyberpowerpc.com/ years ago to build out whatever I wanted and haven't looked back, and I've ordered many many systems from them for family members and friends. These guys offer anything from the bottom end of PC parts to the extreme high end. You are able to get the name brand parts you want, configure the PC exactly to your specification and they do a professional job on assembly. Everything tied up nice and tight as well as burn in.

You can also order with no operating system if you have a license or want to install something like Linux on it.

The price difference of just buying the parts and buying the exact parts you want from CyberPower, have them put it together and provide a one stop warranty is about 10%-12% over what you pay if you buy all the parts separately and assemble it yourself. When you calculate the cost of shipping to get what you want from this place, and order something else from that place it turns into a big hassle and time sink, not to mention extra shipping costs add up.

For me, it isn't worth the time or hassle to source the cheapest price for a part, put it together, burn it in, etc for the very very very small fraction of difference in just going onto their web site and click click click. And wait.

Here's my current rig. Gotta admit that is pretty bad to the bone! I don't have quad motors and a 38ft fountain but my computer has quads. :)

I've been using Newegg.com for over a decade. Built dozens of computers, repaired dozens more. Purchased all sorts of things from them and never had a problem. They are a fantastic company and will continue to get my business.

Their consumers are generally more tech savvy than other sites and a lot of reviews can be looked at with some credibility.

whoa! alrighty then ... sounds like i shouldnt have an issue. didnt know they were more 'build yuour own pc' orientated. i was looking at getting a pair of klipsch speakers and the price seemed too good to be true considering ebay and the msrp.
anyways i'll give em a try.
thanks for all the feedback.

I've spent probably 1.2 million in pc components and stereo hardware over the past decade at Newegg. Used to run a computer repair business. Hands down the easiest people to deal with if a problem ever arises with a purchase.99 percent of orders were recieved on time without surprise and packaged well. Newegg is my go to place for anything electronic related.

I don't have a single complaint, and this one is getting up there in age as far as computer go, 2-3 years maybe. It runs 24/7, never shut it off.

I built my computer in 1998 -- ran Win 98 operating system on a 19gB HDD. Never turned it off, it ran 24/7 until I took it apart 10-years later in 2008 so I could upgrade to a Win Xp machine. :grin:
