    I would most online companies would have something along those lines. I mean they should have the bank clear the MO before sending the card. I guess that's just what you have to put up with when you don't pay with a credit card....

    BTW you DID get your video card right? I mean other than having to wait for the bank to clear the MO you didn't have any problems?

    I do a lot of purchases for computer parts. I work on probably 7 computers a week that need new parts, or there owners want to upgrade. I have had problems with h**p://www.googlegear.com with slow shipping but I have had it come flying in the second day air just like it should. I have not had any company that every time it shipped just like it should. I have bought from so many companies I cant name them all but take a look at
    h**p://www.pricewatch.com . I have ordered from just about everybody listed in pricewatch and never had a problem. I always shop around for the best price. But keep an eye on the local stores. Around me there are Office stores like Office Depot, Staples, Office Max, that have sales with rebates you can't match.
    Linksys NIC for 4.99 US after rebate and they sell on line.
    Hope this helps

    I was purchaseing parts for a friend on pricewatch, He decided on a company name AIB. I have had nothing but problems so far with that company. I selcted the 3 day shipping, they charged me for it, but they schedualed UPS to deliever it in 5 days. I have tried BOTH emials for the company, one of them had terminal failures, the other was over it's limit. I then tried calling the companies phone #s, i tried the main # and never got an answer, thier automated system kept looping it's messages. I then tried calling thier odering #, and the rep there yelled at me saying it wasn't his problem, go to hell, and stuff like that, he refused to give me another #.

    I am waiting for the rateing email from the company, The schedualed date for delivery has yet to arrive. So i don't know about the product yet.

    Sorry about the rant, just needed to get it off my chest.

    Ill update this when i recieve the product.

    Let me tell you something...a money order IS guaranteed! I had to give my money to the person that made out my money order to recieve it! That being said, I have NEVER had ANY company that I bought from to delay shipping of my order just because they wanted the money order to clear the bank FIRST! Not only THAT but it should not have taken as long as it did to even clear! And yes I did recive my product two weeks later! And I don't believe that I should be penalized for not using a credit card! And NO I will NOT put up with this! Enough said!

    1) www.newegg.com
    the have great prices, and good shipping prices. I did some shipping comparisons, and they actually where the best deal!!!!
    Shipped FedEx, so nice! They go my order here in 4 days, I place on a monday morning and got it on thrusday afternoon. (from california to florida, not bad at all) Watch out for the express shipping option, save your $3...does not speed up the processing time!


    2) www.computerhq.com
    STAY AWAY. If you are reading this, do not use this company. You cannot get sales, tech support, RMA, or even the operator on the phone. They are slow, and like to ship airborne (blah) suxpress. There prices are not at all competitive and they have been less than helpful with my purchase. I will never order from them again.

    Webe3, If you were to be selling say your computer. Someone said that they will take it for $500 you say sure. 1 Week later you get a money order for the sum of $500. Now would you send out your computer -before- you cash the money order? Personally I would wait till I got my money. Several things can happen with money orders. But anyway I am not defending this company I am just trying to find out whether or not you got the card that you ordered without any other problems.


    Now back on tack-

    I will post my experience with all the companies I purchased form for my new computer.
    New Sig soon, old one was way outdated.

    Ok first review:

    www.essencompu.com

    Rating: 10/10

    I ordered a Lite-On 40/12/48 cd-rw drive. Very cheap price on this drive compared to other online stores. I ordered it early Sunday morning recieved my order confirmation e-mails instantly. Monday I recieved my Shipping confirmation e-mails. Included in the e-mail was my UPS tracking number. I didn't really get a chance to use the tracking number since ups only updates it every 6-10 hours or so. I recieved my package today (tuesday). It was well packaged and came with everything. The cd-rw was in it's retail packaging and even had the CD-R and CD-RW cd's in it.

    I don't think everyone should expect getting there item so early (it was shipped via UPS ground). I live in MA and there headquarters is located in NY (right next door).

    Overall great service, no problems, prompt shipping. Everything. Would definatly order from them again.

    I just got my new system from www.googlegear.com and www.shentech.com

    Googlegear has sweet shipping costs, very fast, and quality packing. Shentech I used for cheaper prices, but I forgot to factor in shipping and ended up about $20 out. Only 1% of total order tho, including shipping.

    I have yet to see anything at Newegg that interests me, aren't they the new Egghead? I hated Egghead anyway, if they're egghead I'm avoiding them. Their prices seem high, and shipping seems aweful. JM2C

    Anyway, that's me.
