Newegg open box surprise

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
I had not ordered an "open box" before, but I needed to replace a general purpose MoBo(supports 06,05,04). With the dire warnings of risk, board only,etc.,when the "free shipping" MoBo arrived, it was in a Retail Box with all normal accessories(unopened). It works fine! A nice surprise.

Happens all the time. On some unlucky occasions they only send just the board

beat this: bought an open box Infinity Scythe Heatsink/Fan Combo.. paid 10 dollars less than a new retail one (35 dollars).. the Scythe came with a broken fan... i e-mailed asking if i could have the fan replaced. they said no. then they gave me a refund and let me keep everything i spent 15 dollars on a silverstone fm121 fan to replace the broken one so i basically got my scythe w/ silverstone for only 15 dollars!!!! NEWEGG's service cannot be beat.

You know what guys, I'm yet to hear someone saying bad things about the open box from egg.

So far, you're the 4th person saying that they got "everything" as if it were brand new.

newegg rules.

Open Box OEM is not new as far I know. For new OEM stuff, they just list it as OEM (like many hard drives).

However, Open Box OEM just comes bare.. motherboard only ( from experience). Open Box likely comes with a bunch of accesories.. .depending on your luck.

umm, i have ordered 5-6 open box motherboards from the egg and only one was full retail and i had to rma it. ALL others have been just the board which is always disapointing, especially with this p5b i was really hoping to get the whole thing.

still no complaints you save %20+ and who really needs the cables and old drivers anyway.
