Personally, having them multi-box isn't that big of a deal to me. Having them all Ari e at different times is the problem, especially since the order was made out at the same time. Maybe you should call them and give them a piece of your mind.

I don't see why people complain about this? I don't think people understand the logistics of shipping.


A) Imagine how many people would be up in arms if they held everything back until it was all available? Not everyone is buying a full computer like you where all the parts are needed. A lot buy parts for different machines, or multiple accessories. I for one would never shop at a store that held back my order until everything was available.
B) Imagine the space required to hold hundreds or more likely thousands of orders waiting to be completely fulfilled?
C) Imagine the man power it would require in order to match backordered items with their waiting boxes if there are the thousands as mentioned above.

I've worked and seen what goes on in a retailer's shipping warehouse. The employee's aren't sitting around waiting for the next order. It is a very automated process.
Orders comes in and processed in que... products that are available immediately get selected... products get put on shipping line and shipped out.

Throwing a "hold under order complete" wrench into the system is likely not physically feasible. It would not only increase costs due to increased labour, but it would slow down the entire process for everyone.

True, ... maybe its just me, I'm very impatient about waiting for the parts... But I can tell you this, normally I buy most of my stuff from ncix, and I've never had that issue with them before... (They do seem to cram stuff into bigger boxes) , and this time around with the sale they had on I was able to cherry pick the parts I wanted and I was more then satisfied with the cost. So, to save some hassle with shipping (possibly getting a quicker delivery) ONT versus BC and price matching etc, I went with newegg... That was my mistake, I never realized parts could be coming from all over the usa and canada?!?!?

Here's an example of my package tracking so far, and its still only in ONT? ,I might get the package by friday at this rate a full week after my fist package came!

Do you have any idea how big Ontario is? I've driven across the country from Halifax to Vancouver - I can promise you that Ontario is by far the vast majority of the trip. The only place that takes remotely as long is BC - and it's the friggin rockies. Ontario is physically almost a third of the trip itself if driving east/west.

Coming from the states; up through windsor/toronto then to MTL to go east... thats two days driving easily.. I mean it's doable in a day but it entirely depends on traffic.
