Tiger direct is pretty good, has excellent sales, however, I generally find newegg has a better selection as far as internal components go, and their normal prices are a bit cheaper. Tiger directs sales are better, but as for non-sale prices, neweggs the way to go. Ive bought from both, and will probably buy from both again. :D

I personally don't like Tigerdirect either, their website is a disorganized mess. I prefer Newegg for a few reasons, excellent service, good prices, and I earn more frequent flier miles with them.

lol frequent flier miles hehe. yeah, TD is a bit confusing, but their sales are hard to beat. I purchase 90% of my components from Newegg because of above listed reasons, but occasionally TD just has a deal that I cant pass up. :D

Occasionaly Tigerdirect does have good sales that should be considered, but even those can be difficult to find.
I'm a mile junkie, but I put them to good use. Who wants first class? :thumbsup:

Tiger Direct is good for some things, but as DJBPace07 said, their site is lousy to look at. For being such a popular company, you think they would make it a little more user friendly.

Also, all of their low prices, which Newegg's are usually similar or better, require rebates. I've gotten stiffed from some rebates before, and the last one I sent out for took over 4 months to finally get to me, and I had to call them twice.

I agree with them, Newegg is a better place. I have bought quite a bit of stuff from TD, but that's only when I can't find what I'm looking for at Newegg.. :thumbsup:
