It is not ok to ship it like that, anyone who argues has nothing better to do with their time.

If something it bought new, it needs to be new. Dents are not the end of the world, but who are you to value that dent? If spend my hard earned money on something I want it to be new, anyone saying otherwise can take it elsewhere. With all that said, no I would not return the box, it would be too much hasttle for just a box, but this is not acceptable by all means.

The SSD box looks okay, but it does make a rattling sound when I move around. I am going to be be building this rig tomorrow, so hopefully the SSD won't be DOA.

Oh please, Newegg could've shipped just a bare cardboard box with the ssd inside wrapped in bubble wrap(could've even just shipped it in the shelf packaging) - I've also received hard drives shipped this way.
B&H ships hard drives in a box packed with peanuts, this is essentially the same level of protection you SSD received in its shelf packaging.

Its a box, the box is designed to take a beating, heck my computer case box was pretty beat up by the time it arrived(shipped in plain retail packaging), did I complain 'cause the box was dented? No, its pointless, the box did its job.

The box is designed to protect the item. The very intention of the box is so that you receive your item in a 'like new' condition.

Please, tell me how the box not being 'perfect' even remotely suggests that the product he purchased is not 'new.'

You guys are blowing my mind right now. How any of you survive in the real world is beyond me if things like this get your panties in a twist.

If you want to sit and complain about a tiny dent that doesn't even affect the very item that you purchased, it is you that has nothing better to do with your time. Whilst you're sat there moaning, I've already plugged the SSD in and I'm giggling like a little girl on Christmas day as my PC boots up.

If you aren't paying for shipping and getting an item at discount and the item itself is new and in perfect condition....why complain about such a tiny imperfection with the box that may or may not have been caused my the shipping/packaging.

I'd like to see you go shopping at a retail store. Dents happen just as easily in the warehouse/store as they do in transit.

Bold: This is a forum. Anyone can say whatever they want.

Just because the box got dinged means it isn't new now? Go to the back of any retail store. You'll find tons of dings.

And a few cut boxes from the idiots using a box cutter when a box clearly states "do not open with sharp object" rolleyes.gif

Boxes, I work with them all day, they are there to CONTAIN and PROTECT the contents.
that's it.

If I am giving that amount of business to a company and recommending them left and right to my friends (as I have done over and over again for newegg) I expect my order to be treated as if they respect the fact that I am giving them a significant amount of my money. We are not talking about a $5.99 rubber chicken here. An example, I used to work in a granite slab warehouse. They literally cost $1000's and upward for 1 piece. They are very strong and durable and not likely to damage, but we didn't tie them to the back of the truck and drag them to the destination. We packaged them with more care than deserved and treated them like spun glass. Because we knew that just one unhappy customer could cause us a significant loss. Just because most of what we buy can fit in the palm of a hand doesn't mean that we deserve any less treatment.

High volume sellers save a lot more by cutting reasonable corners than they would by appeasing unreasonable customers.

SSDs and memory are solid state devices that are almost impossible to inadvertently damage in shipping. Were that box completely destroyed, chances are that the SSD would have survived. There is zero point in shipping them in more complex packaging. The chances of the retail box and an envelope being insufficient are miniscule.

Well technically I have no clue if it works or not. As I previously mentioned, I am not building this computer till tomorrow, so time will tell.

This may sound odd to OCNers, or maybe perfectly normal, but here it goes. I save all my boxes. I "show them off" so when you enter my home and office, you can see what I have purchased. I have them on shelves, bookcases, corners, etc. I even have a bookcase just dedicated to my watercooling parts!

It's also a good conversation starter, especially for people who are not familiar with computer parts (A motherboard? What's that?) So, in this case, the SSD box is dented, and will not look good on my shelf.
post #50 of 174
If its dented, this its not new.. Its damaged, you pay for the box just as much as the SSD.
