Not everybody works retail and comes to the conclusions that you do, or threads like this wouldn't exist. Obviously, and rightfully, consumer confidence isn't that high, and if you send someone something with broken seals, you should explain to them why those seals are broken.
I'm absolutely not disagreeing with you...I make it a point to tell our customers the situation regardless of it being good or bad.
My point is, even my cores came with broken seals and I got mine direct...So, obviously, somewhere, the vendors/retailers were asked to do something.
Our rep only said the seals were broken for a reason, assured me they were new and that was it.
I'm simply saying that there have been situations in the past where, it was done shadily...And while I understand consumer confidence is low at the moment, I'm one of those people that would rather see the seal broken and accept that it was broken then have stuff missing from the inside of the box and finding out later it was because they heat the seals and removed crap inside.
I don't speak for our rep and I honestly only ordered a couple cores to test with beta apps...So, I'm not even close to the authority on this subject...
If you'd like to contact newegg and ask, I almost guarantee they'll either say they were asked to, it came that way or, they'll offer to send you a new one but, it will end being the same situation.
And just as a P.S. ~ One of our interns just came in and he had ordered from Amazon; the seals are broken as well.
