Default ThinkGeek

anybody order from this site? how are they?
I am thinking of ordering something from their site.
I read some bizrate reviews, and they are pretty decent, but I prefer people giving me their opinions.

They're a good company. I think I ordered a flash drive or something off them.

Newegg doesn't always have the best prices though...typically the prices are competitive, but you can probably find it for a few bucks cheaper somewhere else.

Sometimes they sell for cheaper, show that link from newegg to microcenter, and they will lower it to that price. Too bad its CPUs only. Microcenter sold me an E7200 for $99 while newegg was about $114, and they were selling an Q8200 for $99 awhile back.

Im not buying anything computer related so Newegg and Micro Center wont have them.

Your pretty dumb if you honestly believe newegg has the best prices on everything. Always shop around when looking at electronics. A quick example.

Q6600 @ Amazon $198.39 shipped
http://www.amazon.com/Intel-Q6600-Qu...0271518&sr=8-1
Q6600 @ Newegg $214.99 shipped
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16819115017

Amazon is $16.60 cheaper on that product alone.

Newegg is good and all, but Think Geek has stuff Newegg would never dream of having.

For example: Screaming Monkey Slingshot
