#47711 Grammatically incorrect posts

Posted by TomSahz on 15 January 2014 - 07:04 AM

Yeah, it really doesn't matter, if people don't like incorrect grammar, they shouldn't be on the internet. (Sorry MassaHarri)

#29717 I'm going to build myself a computer case...

OK, here's the promised photos:

The cover for the DVD drive hasn't been installed yet, so it was just sitting there for the photo – you're fortunate I managed to get it, because the wind wanted to blow it over.

Since taking these I've put the first coat of varnish on.

Oh, and when I was getting ready to solder up the broken wires on the USB ports, two more broke. So I don't think I'm going to bother with soldering those up, I'll just figure out something else...

#55083 Bad review.

Posted by Word Of Madness on 07 July 2014 - 05:03 PM

Honestly, this looks like needy customer syndrome.

The product number listed on their website matches the product they delivered to you. They finally gave in to your neediness and gave you the extras free of charge, then you refuse to remove a negative review.

Alphacity could have treated you better earlier on, but I'm fully on their side here. They have done absolutely nothing wrong. They were not arrogant. You were.

The photos don't do the LED lighting justice, it looks BEASTLY in real life, believe me :P

This was my first build from scratch. I just want to thank everyone who has given me advice and useful information along my journey to creating Heracles. I really really appreciate it and I am so proud to be part of the PriceSpy community. I hope the images show the amount accumulated opinion and research all of us have put into Heracles.

#28980 Case Display Thread

Posted by Patrick_T on 14 March 2013 - 08:23 PM

Been away for quite some time. But here it is, my new and current loop. Took it down, cleaned the blocks and radiators, and changed the layout and tubing. Push-pull on the 200mm rad is a must.

#54024 Newegg to start shipping to NZ

Posted by Techworld1 on 08 June 2014 - 12:03 PM

Please don't think that NZ etailers are creaming it over here. I know I'm not. I have the same markup across the board on all NZ supplied goods and its that low that I can make or lose money depending on what the freight cost is.
I don't think the suppliers are creaming it either. It is not cheap to get stuff sent over here. Either a small parcel or a container. Plus they have to warehouse the stuff and pay staff to dispatch and take orders etc etc. And take risks. Do they order a hundred whizz bang graphics cards only for them not to sell and they get stuck with them. There is alot of money tied up in stock, believe me. Goto any etail site, look at what they have 'in stock', try to add that that and then multiple it by 2 or more times per item. Big dollars. Without ordering in bulk, you don't get the discounts available.

There is more to prices often that end users see. Many assume computer retailers are ripping you off. I can guarantee this is one line of retailing you are not being ripped off. Other lines of retail may be ripping you off and creaming it, and maybe I'm just doing this all wrong but I don't believe we are. Some places may be but sites like Pricespy enable to you guys to see who that is. That ability doesn't really exist for many other retail lines.

Having said that, I think Newegg shipping here is a good thing. It opens up more brands and range which is what I think NZ is missing (not pricing).
