It seems that I don't have very many sources for PC hardware. I'd like to hear some recommendations for some other good sources. If you have any other good sources, please post them here and tell us why you like them.

Mine are :
NewEgg - Great prices, good service
Monarch - Good prices
MWave - Good prices

Thx,
Ice out ...

xoxide.com is the first place i ever saw the 5.25" bay cup holder though...

How do NewEgg and ZZF compare with packing quality? Question

Of the four cases I have bought from NewEgg:
2 some minor shipping dents to case
1 destroyed
1 no damage


It's getting tiring. Anyone know if either one packs better Question

just wanted to add this one

ProVantage

always compare prices with what you find anywhere else with this site, they usually have it for less and a warehouse full of them with quantity instock always on display

I've received about ten or fifteen packages over the years from NewEgg, and only once had any issues with packing, but never any damage. (I've never gotten anything larger than a motherboard from them, though).

NewEgg's customer service is also a big ++ in my experience. Every time I've had an issue or question, their online text-chat service folks get it taken care of, and they've even offered me discounts for my trouble.

[Edit: D'oh... just realized I responded to a post in a necro'd thread, ha.]
