I've been lucky with Newegg I guess ? Plus, other than the weekend, I usually get items shipped in 1-2 days, even on the free shipping (4-7 day thing). Being right next to Cali helps. So I stick with them and I've yet to have issues over 10+ years. I use Amazon as well, like the H100i I ordered was around $25 cheaper than Newegg. Thanks for the concern though.
