Windows 7: Newegg Vs. Amazon for buying PC parts

04 Mar 2011   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I agree with everyone. I like shopping with newegg and I like having all my eggs in one basket (haha, pun intended).
I've also been recently buying lots of items through Amazon (did most of my x-mas shopping with them this year. That's the way to go!) and I was very pleased with the whole experience.

As it turns out I have in my NE cart; DVD/CD burner, Seagate HDD, Thermaltake PSU, Corsair memory, Rosewill remote, AMD CPU (with fan and heatsink I hope), Silverstone micro-ATX case.
Shipping on all items= $26.76
I can get the case from Amazon for 10$ less and the HDD for 5$ less (both free shipping) for a total of $15 savings which also changes the NE shipping to $6.77
So I'd be saving around $35 by mixing and matching.

I have to buy the mobo from amazon (actually TigerDirect) because NE is out of stock.

I think in terms of the RMAs, shipping, prices, and service they're pretty comparable. Sometimes Newegg has a better variety of products within a category, but I like Amazon's 1-Click ordering to speed up the process.

Peripherals that I can hold off on like a new BD drive I always get from Newegg or online because I have a particular brand and model in mind. But I try to buy the core components from the local Micro Center. If they have the motherboard, CPU, RAM, GPU, and PSU I want, I'll buy there and not have to deal with any fear of needing to RMA anything that could hold up the build. On the current build MC didn't have the RAM I wanted in stock so I bought from Newegg and crossed my fingers.

It's always nice when things just plain work.

I steer clear of Newegg for reasons of my own, and I only use Amazon on rare occasions, because they do not protect their customers from problems when an order goes to one of their sub-vendors. I use either Tiger Direct or eBay for almost all of my transactions. So far, neither one have let me down.

Amazon vs. Newegg
Anyone shop both Amazon and Newegg? I've been shopping with Amazon for over 10 years so I'm use to the way they do business. To be honest, I think they have some of the best customer service going; and I've never had any major issue with stuff bought from them - laptops to CD's to school...
