I am looking for the best store I can find. As long as they ship it will work. I want great prices and good products. Good customer service doesn't hurt either.
I used to use newegg and zipzoomfly exclusively. However zipzoomfly doesn't seem to carry the new top of the line stuff anymore. At least not what I am looking for. Never tried NICXUS.com. A little confused on that one. Newegg is my favorite but I have gotten some crap from them in the past and sometimes it looks like someone else returned it and I got it. Most things have worked some have not. I don't think I have had problems returning stuff. Anyway I am looking for what you guys think is best. Thanks in advance.

Have you tried Tigerdirect? I've bought a lot of stuff from them, they don't always have prices lower than Newegg, but I've not had any trouble from them or the stuff I bought. :thumbsup:

It`s just a fact of life that once in a while you will get a lemon. No matter who you buy from.

So far I would have to say that my best overall experience has been with newegg. Though I do shop around when buying multiple items looking for the best overall price, which includes shipping.

Be aware when you buy, read the complete description of the product. Many times an item will be listed as open box. Meaning it probably has been sold once. Returned because it was an incorrect part. Restocked then reshipped to another customer.

For newer components that are being hawked today...Newegg is probably the best.

TD has a deeper, older inventory and seems to favor builders who want components that are not being hailed as "today's hot buy".

<<Newegg is my favorite but I have gotten some crap from them in the past and sometimes it looks like someone else returned it and I got it.>>

That's why some prices tend to appear to be bargains...the components are refurbished (off-lease) or returns. "Open Box" implies that, IMO.

Thanks guys. I always look to see if an item is an open box or refurb. I usually stay away from them.
