@achoo22- I've had similar experiences with Newegg shipping, but I don't think it's completely the shipping companies fault. Newegg has shipped expensive ram in plastic bags (literally, with no bubble wrap, nothing, just plain anti-static bags with a postage tag). I used to love Newegg, but in the last few years they have really gone downhill. They used to have stellar prices, but now I always finding the same products elsewhere. Plus, they always arrive in better condition. Frankly, I've never had an order from Newegg correctly shipped (wrong items sometimes), or arrive without damaged items.Once, I ordered a laptop that arrived with no hard drive (just a gaping hole), and they tried to charge a 20% restocking fee. Thank goodness for intervention by VISA.
