[Various] GTX 1080 Reviews - Page 477  

post #4761 of 6175
Beware of NCIX, they're not honoring price matching and are slandering competition, saying that certain non FE gtx 1080 cards haven't been released. Their pricing is also significantly higher than the competition.

Had to switch my order from them to Memory Express because of the above reasoning.

That's down right scummy.

Yeah, not overly impressed with them. Oh well, guess they don't want my money. Memory Express also had significantly cheaper shipping. So in reality, NCIX did me a favor.

Also found out that in Canada, it doesn't matter where you buy a product, you're billed for the tax of the shipping destination. Kind of shady.

Anyhow, I've never seen NCIX pull this kind of nonsense before, not sure why they're pulling it now, especially at the expense of their reputation. A manager tried to imply that Memory Express might change their pricing at the last second after my order had been processed. At that point I cancelled my order.

Maybe trying to squeeze out every last dollar in expected success of the 1070 like the 970. What better way to make money than to slander all competitors and steal customer base for what is likely going to be 970 launch 2.0.

NCIX always has inflated pricing, probably why they allow price matching.

Yeah and 9/10 time they have accepted all my price matches. Trying to do the same with Canada Computers and they lost me as a customer.

If it was just that I'd shop there in the future but after a manager told me that they've had memory express change their pricing on orders already placed, after release and after the order has processed...I'v decided to not shop there again.

Both sides probably thought "nah" after the nano bombed.
