http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx...6-043-_-Product

What the heck. $8.69 shipping for THAT? Thats like not even $1 to send. Yet they'll ship an HDTV for free.

yah, seen stuff like that. Want to hear funny story for me? I was looking for a IDE to sata adaptor. couldnt find one really, anywhere, in my price range. I wanted one for less then 10 bucks, and made in USA, none of that chinese stuff. Finally turned to ebay, all of them were, of course from china, except one. It said reliable US, and it was 4 bucks, plus like $14 in shipping. I was like crap, but thats still cheaper then new off newegg, and it says reliable US, right? so I order it. When it arrived, the return address was "hong kong" i was like what the heck, then I tried it, and it didnt work. get that, pay 3 times the amount of the item (wasnt much more then whats featured there) for an item that didnt work. I emailed them, and they said they would give me a full refund of the product only (not the shipping) provided I ship it back to them. I was like umm, not losing any more money to this. then they got mad when I left them a negative review. . .I wonder why, outrageous shipping, didnt work, lied about location, lousy return policy, I wonder. . .
