Need hardware? Stay away from Amazon! - Page 2

post #11 of 46
I have a Logitech K800 on backorder from Canada Computers, though they say 5-8 days to get re-stocked I don't plan on seeing it for well over a month...be patient I can't see them trying to screw you over for one item.

i would cancel...but they dont even charge you until it's shipped
^^this. Make sure to go back and look who the actual seller was. A lot of stuff on Amazon isn't actually sold by them.

I have ordered roughly 50 items from amazon over the last year or so and not a single item was a day late. Did you make sure it was actually sold from amazon instead of herpderp.com's listing on amazon?

EDIT; Eh..... question has been asked a few times already it seems.

That is true. I've ordered from Amazon dozens of times and this is by far the worst experience.

The case after $10 rebate is about $160 and it's now listed at almost $200. I think they're waiting for/hoping that I'll cancel the order.

Ive never had a problem with amazon and most of my hardware comes from there because of the no tax + free shipping promo. Most of amazon has different sellers so their like a 3rd party but considering that's a new case i'm not surprised at all. just cancel and order from newegg if its that bad.

I order TONS of things from Amazon with Prime I got from being a student. Nothing but epic win from them. Much better than newegg.

Well Amazon can be good to shop at but my brother got ripped off once, he long ago had to pawn his whole Tales of the Crypt dvd collection because he has 4 kids to support and he works a full time job, it was a hard time back then but now he's stable with money and work. However.. he found another collection whole dvd copy of Crypt on Amazon. He bought it and spent a lot of money on it.

Once it arrived, it turned out the menus were wrong and some episodes were missing and he was shocked it was a bootleg dvd. Someone did a hell of a job doing that and he had to contact Amazon to get his money back and he was ripped off, he did get it back and yet he went off and sold the bootleg elsewhere Profit lol.

However you just need to be careful when shopping used things or "new" things if they are cheap. Amazon is still a good place to shop but i NEVER shop PC stuff there, i always stay with NewEgg or Tiger Direct. Well NewEgg mostly never failed me, Tiger never really have good shipping rates.

I highly doubt they're trying to screw you... Is the case being sold by Amazon or by another retailer through Amazon's network?

And get prime, it's the best thing ever. I forgot a some toiletries once on vacation and ordered them at the airport, they were at the hotel the next morning .

You kidding me? NewEgg is so great they ship really fast. Sure Amazon may have some stuff people CAN sell but you can likely get ripped off. Heck you can probably find the same stuff for less price at NewEgg compared to walking in Best Buy and getting ripped off.
