Newegg used to be one of the best places to buy parts from online. That changed a few years ago. I don't know exactly what happened but they were still legit but quality of service and competitiveness in pricing had gone down. Then about a year ago they got sold to a Chinese company and that's when I completely wrote them off. Even so, I never discouraged people from buying there. I simply recommended buying from other places instead.

Now Newegg is under investigation regarding possibly being involved in a Ponzi scheme. See the LA Times: http://www.latimes.com/business/tec...1020-story.html

If it turns out to be true, it's likely that the company will close. If they do, they will likely give no warning to customers. Probably won't get any warranty or returns honored.
