I'd say they're probably on special or something. The customer service at Newegg is probably the best though. They don't seem to make a lot of fuss for returning products.

Heck no. I've dealt with MicroCenter a lot, and they never even ask a question when you return something. I say get the MicroCenter one, definitely. I think newegg has been getting greedy lately, their prices aren't nearly as competitive as they were...
