amazon's selling the koss esp 950 for 665$ not a terrific deal but it's the best in the last 6 months   (the 1 hour sale 2nd sep doesn't count )

Awesome, that is reassuring. So the typical sennheiser warranty is in effect as well? Did you enjoy/keep the IE80?

First post, but wanted to give a heads up that I just ordered V-moda m80s (shadow) from amazon warehouse deals for 123 + prime shipping. Item condition says "Like New" and also "item may come repackaged."  This is backordered till Oct 12, but this seems like the best deal for these I've seen if the condition is true.

Yup- and that's why it has been fixed; it was a mistake.  Luckily RD was kind and honorable enough to honor the price I checked out with.  Gotta really like these guys!  Even before this purchase, they've always been incredibly fast with email responses and shipping.  Both of my orders with them were shipped out less than 12 hours after I placed them.  Plus, now that Amazon tacks on sales tax in California...

I bought a clip+ about 1 1/2 years ago from newegg and mine has been fine. I think you are more inclined to write a review if you have an overwhelmingly good/bad experience so the average which explains why the results are so polarizing. It doesn't account for the average user experience though

SR850 deal is a no go. My order was canceled & refunded without issue.

 

Very best,

 

Wish I would've read this before I ordered mine.

 

My order was also canceled today.

While I would say thats obvious, I think newegg reviews are a pretty decent source to get a general idea of how the product is.  I suppose it will not stop me from buying a refurb though.

One thing is for sure, Newegg > Tigerdirect.

 

I'm building a new computer and ordered 1/3 of the parts from Amazon, 1/3 from Tiger direct, 1/3 from Newegg to get the best prices and the Amazon and Newegg stuff has been sitting in my house for over a week while Tiger Direct customer service runs me in circles about why its too late to cancel my order despite most of the items being "in processing, not yet shipped".

 

Maybe I just have bad luck..

no... it's not just you...

Ive been using newegg for a while now and haven't ordered from tiger in years. I won't be making that mistake again for a while. In their defense I did end up with a 4 dollar 8GB microSD card for free because they said it would cost more to ship it than to just give it to me. But they said the Clip+ i ordered was in stock then turned around and said it was "backordered" Thats why I went to newegg.

Anyway I just ordered 16K worth of computer parts from newegg today for a project. Not a dime spent anywhere else. They are reliable.

Sounds like Amazon and my Aphex Twin LPs. I pre-ordered them a week before release (they had just gone up on the site) and as soon as the release date hit they were both marked as 'Out of Stock' aka we'll ship it whenever we feel like it. 

 

Now every time I contact customer service to ask they say 'Well you ordered an Out of Stock item, what do you expect?' and I have to explain that I pre-ordered it. Why would I order and Out of Stock item? God. 

 

At least this most recent time they upgraded my shipping speed when they finally actually get the damn things in.

The only time I receive decent service from TD, is when I'm paying retail for an item rolleyes.gif

While they "cant" cancel an item in processing, they can leave notes on your account for the shipping department. Also, let them know you will be refusing the package if it arrives to your house, on account that you wont receive the items by the desired time(occasionally, this is enough for them to make the effort to close the order). I havent been asessed a restocking fee for merchendise refusal, although I make it a point to warn them before the shipment goes out; if you are, make sure you have atleast established with them that their speed of service is unsatisfactory, and they will usually waive it.. otherwise, theres always opening a credit card dispute biggrin.gif
