Rating + 2 Messed up my shipping address

Package couldn't be delivered, was returned, and refunded.

When I called the seller, I was connected with a representative almost immediately and they quickly issued me a refund, which I did appreciate. No issues here at all.

I ordered a ARCTIC Freezer Xtreme Rev. 2 CPU Cooler along with components to build two systems, and upgrade two others. This seller took longer than any other seller to charge my credit card and to actually ship my order out. Then, I received everything else I ordered in the same purchase, except the CPU cooler from this seller. They shipped it UPS SurePost, and when it was handed over to the USPS for final delivery the USPS was unable to deliver the package as addressed. The USPS returned the shipment the moment there was an issue; as is the USPS way.

I ordered the CPU cooler as an upgrade to one of my systems, along with several other components. Because it was addressed poorly and returned, I ordered the cooler again (this time from a different E-commerce site). Unfortunately this has delayed me completing my build for more than a week. So for now I just get to look at the parts that will someday make an awesome system as they sit on a table unused. And that makes me a sad panda.

No. I would not recommend. I ordered the product on Monday night. It was not shipped until a day after the other products were shipped and it did not arrive until the Monday after the other products I ordered. This caused my computer build to be delayed by a week.

Rating + 2 Wrong connectors

It was not made clear to me that the product came in two forms with different connectors connecting to different controllers. As a consequence I accidentally ordered the wrong kind. They have allowed me to return them (at a 10% restocking charge) but have not facilitated getting replacements. So technically their behavior has been correct, but nevertheless it's been a very frustrating experience for me.
Seller Response:Exchanges can only be made for the exact same item ordered.

Rating + 1 No communications, a message from Newegg saying it was shipped, but NO TRACKING NUMBER. I use a mail forwarding service and must have a tracking number.

In in the future I must be more careful not to use 3rd part vendors through Newegg or stop using Newegg altogether. I've never not had a tracking number when an item's been shipped. Either the vendor saving money by not getting tracking (big mistake for orders in the hundreds of dollars) or then poorly managed. Either way won't do business with them again.
Seller Response:Tracking information is available for you to view in your order history.

Ordered a hard drive from The moisture barrier bag for the hard drive had a small puncture in it, like somebody stabbed it. It wasn't damaged during shipping since the package was completely stuffed. Other that that, the order was just fine.

Rating + 1 Paid a premium for new and got used!!! Avoid.

I purchased a GIGABYTE G1 Gaming GA-Z170X-Gaming 7 (rev. 1.0) LGA 1151 Intel Z170 HDMI SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.1 USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard due to Newegg not having any on hand from this retailer. Paid for brand new at a price of $232.89. When the item arrived it was in a brown box with good protection. I opened the box to find the Gigabyte MB box was very worn and no seal on it to prevent accidental opening. When I opened the box the first thing I saw was a owners manual for an Nvidia GTX Titan graphics card. I thought, why is this in there? My brother who was standing there asked if the card was in there also as a joke. I then pulled the actual owners manual out for the MB and it had been thumbed through, was bent up and had finger prints in it. Kind of dirty finger prints. I then removed the MB from its wrapper that the seal had been broken on and found scratches on the white and red MB shield cover. There were finger prints on the battery and you could tell it had been used. I am very disappointed with the seller and will avoid them at all costs. The only positive was I received it in a timely manner. I build and resale pc's and this was a specific build a guy wanted. I shot a couple of pics of the damage and he was willing to accept it although if it were me I would not. I am sure the scratches were caused by a fan heat sink since they are in relation to where the fins would be.
I will say this, the MB does run flawlessly and has a newly updated BIOS. I am sure there was an issue with it and it may have went back for testing and they updated it. Not really sure.
I will not be contacting PatinumMicro as the negative reviews for this company will probably not yield a good result. I will just give them a bad review and avoid them at all costs. Something told me to just go ahead and order it through Best Buy since they had them in stock and we are a Platinum rewards holder which meant any issue they ship me a new product no questions asked but I just placed the order through Newegg for convenience.

Just to add to this..... I did contact them. The only thing they had to say was that the board was new. It was not. I told them I wanted an exchange, they said only if it was defective. I told them it was. They said to return it (at my own expense) and if it tested bad they would exchange it. It is damaged, not defective. They also wanted a return label from me at my additional expense. They would not exchange, refund or replace something they sold me as new. Unacceptable. Newegg you should be ashamed for promoting these guys. Ten years and thousands of dollars from me into your pockets. Also I am still waiting on my thermal paste Newegg you never sent me or replied to my email regarding my order number 254192044. I don't know why we waist our time with these reviews. The only people that read them are purchasers. Maybe if we give enough bad reviews from these poor venders they will go out of business.
Seller Response:Sorry that you did not take delivery of the item in a brand new condition. We will gladly accept a return.

Product came from across the country quite quickly on a Free Shipping deal. However, they are very slow at updating the processing status on Newegg and nearly forced me to cancel my order because I was worried by how many negative reviews they had gotten. Aside from being slow at letting their customer know where the purchase progress is at, the item arrived quick and works great.

Rating + 1 VERY POOR

Before purchase I called them to confirm the Manufacturer Warranty status for the product I was purchasing (WD4002FYYZ). They put me on hold for some time while the party I was speaking to went someplace to verify the factory warranty status. When they came back they assured me that there would be a 5 year factory warranty as described for the product. I placed the order and when it arrived, I checked the manufacturer's web site ( and entered the product serial number. The resulting information displayed said that there was no warranty since this was an "Out of Region" drive.
Seller Response:We will gladly accept a return on your order for a full refund or for an exchange.
