Default WTH Newegg ??

I bought a TV antenna to replace my rabbit ears at my local Home Depot because of researching online.

Winegard Freevision Outdoor HDTV Antenna-FVHD30H - The Home Depot

When I browsed Etailers for prices and I looked in Newegg. WTH?

Winegard FreeVision Indoor/Outdoor HDTV Antenna With 30 Mile Range & 6-Foot Coaxial Cable - Newegg.com

That's actually almost funny! $100 more LOL. I usually lean towards amazon personally.

Yep, most Etailers have similar prices but Newegg. It is being sold by a package company which doesn't make sense at all.

Newegg is a great store but years ago they upset me greatly. In building my Celeron system I ordered stuff from them that included a damaged Asrock mobo. I paid for new and they sent me an open box with a damaged 1155 CPU socket. I sent it back and they sent it back to me claiming I damaged it.

That burned me up that I wrote a scathing review on ResellerRatings. Someone higher up in Newegg emailed me to send it back and it will be replaced and gave me credit for $25. I got the new mobo this time and everything went smoothly. Since then I bought more stuff without any problems.

Sure enough - "Action Packaged Inc." and not Newegg - almost looks like they're pulling an amazon and letting others sell their stuff on their site.

They have been letting others sell on their site for quite some time now...
