Directcanada.ca, any good?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
im sorry if this is the wrong forum for this,i looked and figured this would be the best to ask in.

im going to be building a new system once my tax return comes in, hopefuly p67 mobos will be in stock by then, and was wondering if directcanada.ca was any good to order from.

the prices seem to be better on some things then newegg.ca, buying the processor ram and PSU alone would save 40-50$, and they offer free ground shipping! but ive never ordered from them, neither has anyone i know.

If youve ordered from them, how was it? do they have good service? the thing im sketched out about is ordering the ram or psu from them, then getting one with a defect and having the site have some horrible RMA service. ive ordered from newegg before and the service was awesome. had no problems RMAing DOA ram, and got a new set within a week.

Don't forget to harness the power of pricematching. Get all the canadian sites you can together and check every item at each site. I do pricematching with NCIX - you can check to see if the other places do - i think Canada Computers does. Also - pricing at bestdirect.ca is nice an low on some items. ( 955 chip for 126 right now. ) ( other sites include pccyber.com, anitec.ca, bestdirect.ca, bewawa.com, tigerdirect.ca, a-power.com, ncix.com, infonec.com, canadacomputers.com, pccanada.com, cbit.ca, memoryexpress, as well as others. )

HOWS THAT FOR AN AWESOME LIST! YEAH!

Anyway - yes - take advantage of vendors price matching offers. There's one that will even match sales prices if they can - I think it's Canadacomputers.
