    Thanks for bringing that up. I have sent it up the appropriate people.
    I agree, it is the small things that make lasting impressions.

    Your post is noted and I hope the next time you visit, it is corrected.

    It depends on what you're looking for

    I have at least 5 years experience shopping online for "linux desktop geek" parts for myself. I have always found the best pricing at the egg. I have had a really good experience with about 12 orders and 3 RMAs there. The service is excellent. And yes, they also get bad reviews. I read lots of both good and bad reviews. However, it really depends on what you're looking for. If you need a very specific part, I suggest looking at TigerDirect also. They are usually a close second. I also like to look at compuvest.com for their gigantic load of odd and surplus parts.

    TigerDirect first impressions

    I was traveling through Dallas and stopped at a TigerDirect retail store. I wanted to check out a couple of things. I visited the rest room after looking around and was appalled at what I saw.

    Toilet paper rolls were laying on the floor around the toilet. These were the big industrial size rolls. Funny thing. The toilet paper dispensers held the small rolls but were empty. The large rolls were on the floor next to the toilet.

    Paper towels were scattered all over the floor. The large paper towel rolls were sitting on top of the counter next to the sink. The paper towel dispenser was empty.

    I thought I was in some truck stop rest room. I couldn't believe my eyes. I suppose they save money on toilet paper, paper towels, and rest room cleaning services. Hopefully they are passing those savings unto us.

    Below is a link that will show the photos I took in the rest room.

    Well, after contacting tigerdirect i can now agree with the topic of this thread. I wanted to buy some of the cool items they have, which were cheap for AGP video cards, but since im abroad, i contacted about international shipping. They only accept wire transfers for international orders, no international credit/debit cards, paypal, nothing. This attitude says to me that they dont give a rat's ass about the rest of the world, since wire transfers are expensive to make, something they probably know but dont care. So yes, i would tell to everyone reading this, DONT SHOP AT TIGERDIRECT.COM.

    This is a known issue actually... i am fairly certain that if you have xvideo output enabled on various applications like vlc, mplayer or other software that supports Xvideo you'll also see the same bug.

    Yeah, I think they are keeping the CompUSA name... I was at the Tiger Direct press party in Las Vegas during CES and that's what they had announced it would be.

    [QUOTE=LenS;33870]Interesting thread. As mentioned by sloggerKhan, .
    That said, Tigerdirect has GREAT prices on UPSes. I have three and they are still doing their jobs. No problems in 4 years, despite many power failures out in the Florida swamps. :-) The one time I did need customer service they seemed eager to please and did.

    Nice Post, I will make my bosses aware of the New Egg search style, not sure how far that will go, but I will try.

    NewEgg is a good company on price, but they have a very slack customer service department and do not have the capabilities to accept business Purchase Orders.

    BTW, our warehouse is in Naperville, IL and we just adjusted all of our shipping cost, I agree they were a little high, but check us out now as they have come down.

    We recently bought CompUSA, so you should start seeing more of a Tiger Presence in the Retail Market, even though I think the plans are to keep the Comp name. (Not 100%, it is above my pay grade)

    Cheers, and hope people will give Tiger a second look.

    Interesting thread. As mentioned by sloggerKhan, Newegg's advanced search feature is a MAJOR attraction and always makes them my first stop. It makes it very east to examine components to find the combination of features I need, or at least the best combination available. (hint, hint, Mr. Winkowski). Their shipping is low to reasonable and fast too.

    That said, Tigerdirect has GREAT prices on UPSes. I have three and they are still doing their jobs. No problems in 4 years, despite many power failures out in the Florida swamps. :-) The one time I did need customer service they seemed eager to please and did.

    For things like SATA, IDE cables, fans, etc. coolerguys.com has good prices and fast shipping, though cross country shipping costs are high.

    I like that resellerratings.com site. Newegg is 9.86/6month and 9.74/lifetime now. Tigerdirect is 7.91/6month and 6.93/lifetime now, not sure where the 4.xx came from.

    Nope in US too, in fact I rarely deal with the Canadian market.
