Thumbs up (again!!) for Newegg. I ordered a Seagate 250GB SATA 16MB cache hard drive for my backup Linux PC. I placed my order at 3:02 PM PST on Sunday,April 13. At 7:25 PM on Sunday,April 13.. my new hard drive had already shipped out via UPS Ground. I'm impressed once again.
(Did I mention Newegg rules!!).

Something's happened recently with newegg and my new location. For the past year, newegg has just been ultra slow. With their shipping out of products being their major perk for me, that wasn't cutting it.

Welp, the last week things have been getting here in a day. Eight orders in 10 days, all showing up lightning quick once again. Thumbs back up.

W00t:
Newegg: The items were in excellent condition (Given one dent on the front mask of my case, but it's not a big deal), were processed and shipped right away. Then, when UPS failed to deliver decently, they refunded 24.99 of my 36 dollar shipping fee for my case.

Gigabyte: For making a cheap, and very capable motherboard.

A-Data: For making a huge, excellent quality Flash drive at a great price.


sh00t:
UPS: For fucking up two orders and sending my case to NJ forcing me to wait an agonizing two days after I got every other component in order to get it. Then the other (Flash drive) ended up staying in the same place for two weeks. I ended up finally receiving the damn thing 9 days after the egg saver passed.

Thumbs up: Gigabyte. I bought a new GA-MA790GP-DS4H to replace my old Gigabyte GA-M57-SLI-S4 that burnt out due to a too-high-wattage CPU.(125W Phenom 9950BE). The new GA-MA790GP-DS4H fired right up first try with the 125W Phenom 9950BE,and even accepted my Seagate 1.5TB hard drive with no problems at all.

Two big thumbs up to B&H photo. If I had more, I'd wag them in the air.

The prices are what get me first. You want a big fat Plasma $600 cheaper than anyone else? They got it. $200 off an AV/R normally $600? They got it. And they'll deliver it at very low cost in under a week.

What I really like and drew me to them: they answer your questions correctly. Call up Crutchfield, and they advise you based on what they sell. B&H constantly tells me "that may not be what you want, and we don't carry it...try here". After hearing that, I usually call back and say "based on what you have, what do you got?". It's usually everything I can think of and go ahead and buy, and am very happy I did so.

But beyond all that, they're still the only camera shop I'd go to. Even if it's "just" saving $50 off a $720 lens, I'm there.

B&H is awesome. And if you're into DSLR parts, look into Beach Camera too. I've spent oodles over there.

Thumbs up (again) for PC Power & Cooling. Both my Turbo-Cool 510 SLI and my Silencer 750 have been running flawlessly,ever since I bought them nearly 3 years ago.(My Turbo-Cool 510 SLI I bought in June 2006,and my Silencer 750 I bought in December 2006.) The Turbo-Cool 510 SLI is now in my backup OpenSuse 11 Linux PC,while the Silencer 750 is in my main Windows Vista PC.

Done deal. Ordered a 15-200 VR lense, same price as B&H, and it's great stuff too. Took 3 days to get it even after hours on the shopping cart process. Nice lense, but good company too for all I know. One order, 100%, and will try them again some day I'm sure.

I cream on B&H for their other stuff though. I saved $600 on my 46" Plasma, and was shipped very well. The guy dropping it off was just awesome. Crutchfield "white glove" of sorts.

I'm 5 blocks from Best Buy. Why pay $600 more to drive that far? Their tech sucks balls.
