|nickf829||Not to happy with the speed of this Sammy. Just picked up the 128gb last week and it feels significantly slower than my crucial m4. Anyone else notice the same|

For those that live in CA and missed out on this deal, you can get it from tiger direct for $89.99 no tax and free shipping. Since Newegg and Amazon both charge tax in CA, this comes out to be pretty much the same price.

What kind of computer do you have? There's always that rare case where the particular combination of hardware components leads to some sort of problem. For example the 2011 MacBook Pro 17", see this article: http://blog.macsales.c
But for the most part you should be fine.

|Cracktower||I have been in retail for a long time, more than MrLateNite & MZDASPD6 combined, online commerce is entirely different. When it comes to most things in brick and mortar stores, you can get price adjustments for most things, but when it has anything to do with electronics it is a different story. It is easier to get your money back from a big box store then any e-commerce store being you can just drive to Sears, but you can't just drive to Newegg and demand your money back because you jumped on a deal that wasn't a good deal 3 days later. You will first, need to not have opened the box o get a refund if that's the angle you want to go. Second, you will have to pay shipping to send it back, not as cheap as you think. These companies get special rates becasue of thier volume, you will not get the same deal, trust me. Third, most e-companies will charge a restocking fee, even if you didn't open it. What I think doesn't matter, I have been burned from certain places, even from brick and mortar stores.|

I was in retail for 7 years, so I guess I don't know as much, but I'll try.
Stores only began to offer 7, 10, 14, 28, 30 day price guarantees to help prevent returned used products hitting their customer service desk only to need to be resold at a larger loss as "scratch and dent" or "refurbished", and to keep people from defecting to local competitors and mail order (in the days before the internet) When gas cost almost nothing and people had more free time on their hands to return/rebuy this helped actually improve their bottom line.
There is no such thing as "you must"... it's a business decision based upon the customer base, products and costs of a business.
However in the age of the internet, most every site does NOT offer price guarantees. Amazon doesn't do it, except on TV's and a few other select items (miniscule portion of their inventory), NewEgg doesn't, Buy.Com doesn't. Ebay (buy it now) doesn't.
Why don't they? Well first their prices are typically lower than local retailers anyway, a lot of people avoid paying taxes since they don't charge unless they have a presence, making deals even better, and the key -- return shipping for non-defective items. If the customer has to pay return shipping they are going to be less likely to return an item just because they can get it cheaper elsewhere.
Amazon COULD lower the price of their TV's even more but part of that 30 day price guarantee is built into their normal prices. Do that to too many items and you raise prices for everyone, vs. those of us that are willing to wait for a slick deal.
Yeah it sucks when you miss a good deal by a day because you bought early. But it's not the retailers fault for that.

|nancyliu0522||Seems reasonable price. Thx for sharing!~|
|10-10-2012 07:20 PM|
|bjarmon||Boo, looks like the price has increased to $89.99, both from Buy.com and Amazon.com. Thank you to the OP though|
|10-10-2012 07:19 PM|
if theres a sale within 30days of the original sale
you must match the sale price .
reputable company like newegg that does not honor the price
don't deserve any business.

|seanleeforever||all you guys who are hoping to buy 840 do realize the direct successor for 830 is 840 pro right? 840 uses TLC which, well, let's just say you might be in for a surprise.|
