    I love the terminology used nowadays. Instead of saying "expanding our global footprint" why not come right out and say "we intend to get in everyone's face and try fleece them". That's what they actually mean, isn't it?
    "Expanding their footprint" makes them sound like a Yeti.:D

  3. You forgot to mention in your article that NewEgg is also available in Taiwan. They have been for about a year now.

    I wish I could support Newegg...I really do. They were there for me in the late '90s and 2000's after NECX Direct, CompuAdd and all the rest folded. Bit I just cant bring myself to spend upwards of $20 for 5 day shipping from the west coast to the east coast on the items I want when I can get a better price and no-charge 1-day shipping from Amazon. They need to change their business model

    I remember NECX Direct; I ordered two 12MB Orchid Righteous 3D II cards from them back in '98 as part of my upgrade to a Pentium II system. On occasion I also order from Amazon when their prices are cheaper than Newegg's.
     
  8. Dont bother .. the prices are about the same as currys .. :eek:.. they need about 20% cuts across the board to even start being competitive.

    Newegg has no change, at least in Europe with so many online retailers that they got there.

  10. Newegg was great 5-10 years ago. But iv noticed that their prices are no longer that competitive to their competition. They are becoming what users were trying to avoid. Another big box store with mediocre prices.
