Let's assume they have a worker doing this making (we'll go best case scenario with low wage) $6.50/hr. That'd be $1.08 to test it. Now, they aren't just going to test optical drives because Trivium Nate wants them to. If this were implemented, they'd have to test every part that leaves their facility. We'll assume that each one takes 10 minutes to test. I have no idea how many parts NewEgg moves everyday, but I'd guess (and this really is a guess) 5,000 (that might be a gross understatement). That's 5,000 x $1.08 = $5,400 / day. 5400 x 365 = $1.9 million / year.

Not gunna happen...and that's probably a gross understatement anyways.

Even if they did implement this, the cost would trickle down to the consumer, their prices would raise, they would lose business to other retailers and lose quite a bit of profit. Think about it. It's pretty basic logic dude.

I bought another PSP from another seller, and they shipped it today. It's being shipped from Europe, but they said it should arrive in about 3-6 business days. If I don't get my faceplate after that, then I contact them. Unfortunately, they don't have tracking numbers. I wonder when am I going to get my money back from the other site.

Nah, I ordered from Console-tuning.com, I ordered from consolesource.com last time. Why?

Anybody know anything about a yoyo? I want to get a yoyo, but I can't seem to find any nice ones in store, which sucks because I remember seeing a lot when I was a kid. Now it seems like I have to get it online, but they have so much variety. Got any suggestion on which one I should get?
