Be careful about buying software from Amazon. I've seen too many reports of bogus software being sold there to trust them for software. And their Marketplace vendors aren't any better than FleaBay.
I buy software from them all the time and never had an issue. My recent buys have been, Adobe Lightroom 4, Photoshop CS6, Dreamweaver CS6, and Adobe Acrobat Xl to name a few.

That said, what I wouldn't do is buy from them if they are shipping from a 3rd party outside of Amazon. If it's sold by and ships from Amazon, I'm in, if not, I'm out.

Anyway no issues here.

Just because you have had good luck doesn't mean others haven't.

I could argue the opposite, backed with actual experience, but ok

I buy all my stuff from Newegg. Never had a problem. A few things I bought from Tiger Direct. But there I have to pay sales tax because they are in Florida.

Same here whs. We have a Microcenter store here in Dallas so I deal with them too, but when I buy online it's Newegg. I had to buy my W7 there, Microcenter was all out.
I've always had a good experience with Newegg.

I buy a few electronic items from Amazon (not their Marketplace vendors) but I get my software from NewEgg, Fry's (the actual store), or directly from the manufacturer. Most of the rest of my electronics come from NewEgg.

I won't buy any USB flash drives or camera cards from Amazon, either.

Yeah, that another thing I like about Amazon, no taxes as well. Depending on where you live.

Anyway all retailers have issues from time to time, but I find Amazon's customer service to be pretty good. Of course no one is perfect so... I just know in my 13 years of dealing with them has given me pretty good service.

The other thing with them is they are a reputable dealer so "unauthorized dealer" issues don't pop up should you need warranty service. This is why I usually buy from them, and not their Marketplace sellers. Especially expensive items.

Would You Reject A Pre-Built PC Because Of Windows 8
I found an excellent pre-built PC deal. The system uses quality parts and is cheaper than the cost of the separate parts + shipping by $125.00. Plus, I would have to spend time building the PC. The only problem are is it ships with Windows 8 only. Is Windows 8 a deal killer ?
