We're so going to get the short end of the stick with pricing and shipping costs.

I just hope it doesn't turn out like Amazon.com vs. Amazon.ca, whose slogan is "Less selection, higher prices!".

I don't like it already.

-They only ship UPS, the most god awful carrier in Canada.
-Shipping is more expensive than ncix.com
-Ontario residents buying from newegg.ca pay 13% tax, Ontario residents buying from ncix.com pay 5% tax
-Prices are the sameish or higher than ncix.com

it seems that some products cost slightly higher than the US newegg.

you are absolutely 100% right. i guess i will have to stick with the two of them then...both ncix and newegg. i guess now it just leaves with two sites to shop around on and see which one has the better deal.
i hope at some point newegg will become the same as the one in the US. None the less...i'm sure we'll see some great buys on newegg soon enough...remember, it only came out today...they have yet to impress us LOL
