It's probably a copy of NCIX's business plan of having an online-only company like DirectCanada, BestDirect, etc.

Hmm they seem to charge less than cc as well, i suppose they can since they dont need to pay staff to sit at a cash register when that site is all based online. Shipping is even a bit cheaper as well, looks like i found my new favourite online etailer

i know its buggy, but shipping is cheap, prices are decent, some links are broken, but i bought something, and i got the tracking number and its real. ill update on it when it arrives. The money also goes to Canada Computers. so its probably legit

Finally I found a etailer that's not in British Columbia. Seriously, all those deals where you can save the PST if you're out of BC eg. DirectCanada does not work for me since I'm in BC.

One more for the list - memoryhouse.com. Never ordered from there but I think they may be associated with netlink/ncix/directcanada/tddirect/nxsource as well.

Something of note: OTV Technologies now has a Regina, SK location as well. Perhaps that could be added to the "entry" for OTV?

I'm sure the Regina brothers need to know there is an OTV near them!

Apparently can't post links in your first post, I'll bypass that. :x

Didn't see www(dot)newegg(dot)ca on the list... although I've never bought from them, usually NCIX, sometimes DirectCanada or Tigerdirect.
