The biggest difference, I'm sure, will be customer service ... NCIX's customer service blows and their sister companies are even worse ...

Newegg has a lot of things going for it; site navigation, customer service, product selection, etc. Prices may not be spectacular, but in the 5 or so minutes I've been navigating the site, I haven't seen anything that's outrageously overpriced. Everything I've compared with NCIX is roughly on par or at least within $10.

Downside is no pricematch feature. PMing on NCIX usually saves $100-$300 on new systems I build, which is probably going to be a deal breaker.

Tbh I've hardly had problems with NCIX CS, it depends who you speak to. Same with Direct Canada, we have a DC_Support person here, just go through him, save the time, he is just great, he will provide you with pretty good support.

I only found few things to be cheaper than NCIX, otherwise mostly everything is more expensive.

I don't get the whole site navigation thing. I find NCIX's site much easier to get through.

As for CS, I agree it is lacking bigtime at all NCIX and the others, but I fail to see how it is going to be much better with Newegg since they are in the US.
