Trading with the devil######HDD woes
We were just speaking about the stories from tiger.
An email from a good friend.
I suggested that Hitachi when I bought mine a few months ago. He was rightfully livid, but I told him relax, you make a little over 80k a year.
Tiger Direct *****ed me by sending a busted WD drive that didn' t work and that was discontinued. We re-ordered a replacement from Toshiba but the *****ers never sent me an email telling me it was back ordered. When I got back from vacation on Tuesday, I was pissed and called them up demanding them to ship me a replacement with overnight shipping. They wouldn't comp me the overnight shipping so I told them to ***** off and credit my cc for the original cost of the item, plus the overnight shipping we spent sending the busted drive back ($20). I then went to ZipZoomFly and ordered the Hitachi you suggested on Tuesday. It didn't arrive until fri, but that was ok. It works great.
Tiger has burnt someone I know..............they get the cut-off now, even if they do have a deal now or then.

We should all bow to the great !mitationRust
But seriously though, I like the layout of the site, better then tiger's. It's easier to find what your looking for. Though a lot their products aren't very cheap, I did find this to be a good deal: http://www.zipzoomfly.com/jsp/Produc...uctCode=101564
