4 out of 5 eggs Great cards - Newegg service and delivery carrier stinks! 05/16/2014

This review is from: EVGA 03G-P3-1584-AR GeForce GTX 580 (Fermi) 3GB 384-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

Pros:

Bought two of these. Great product. Super performing video cards at a great price. Though admittedly anyone will match Newegg prices now.

Cons:

Cards are power mongers. 250w each so you better have a huge Power supply if you plan to SLI these babies. 850W or higher recommended.

However the biggest con is that I purchased and shipped directly from NewEgg who said my transaction did not go through despite my account being charged and debited. When I got that resolved they still waited a couple more days to ship it. Then the no-name company they used called 'Ontrac' (They used to use UPS) couldn't find my house despite living on a major highway and being clearly visible. 8 days to arrive from their City of Industry warehouse 25 miles away, only to be told that the new company doesn't have my gate code. (UPS, USPS, FEDEX, DHL all get right in) so that added another 3 days since it was a Friday when they attempted. NewEgg is seriously losing their edge. Why would I even bother waiting when I can go anywhere else and match their price without all the headaches. You guys really disappointed me this time.

Other Thoughts:

If NewEgg would get their heads of out their rear end I may be happier with my purchase. hardware performance is great but the experience was completely soured by Newggg and their corner cutting.

Oh and their 'discount' return shipping labels for RMA cost about $3.00 more than if you bought it yourself directly from the UPS page. What a rip off, you guys. SO disappointed in you now.
