Can I trust products from Newegg.com to be authentic??

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
I have ordered several several headphones from Newegg because of Black Friday pricing. Now I am kinda skeptical about these products especially Sennheiser and Sony headphones, since there are so many generics created. Now both the Sennheiser site along with Sony site say that Newegg is an authorized dealer, but what bothers me is that they also listed Amazon.com which is notorious with 3rd parth selling off fakes!! Does Newegg do the same as third party sales?? I trusted Newegg in the past with computer parts, which is hard to replicate.... But the headphones are sooo notorious at copy n generic fakes out there. Any feedback would be nice

No they don't as far as I have ever seen. You might want to steer clear of the market place though I just don't trust that place. tongue.gif

I remember that one time where they mailed people fake i7 CPUs. The heatsinks were made of a slab of clay with a sticker of a fan on it. I laughed so hard at those.

Amazon.com itself is an authorized dealer. However, Amazon allows 3rd party vendors to sell on their site... these are not authorized dealers.

That's seriously one of the funniest things I've ever seen. If I had gotten that though I would have been so angry.
