Newegg buys into the social

Newegg is by far my favorite electronics retailer. They have an extensive inventory, decent prices, super fast shipping, and responsive customer service. I’ve been using them for years now with no complaints. They announced this week that they’re going to be offering threaded discussion and forums on their site, and the forums section is up and running. On the surface this seems like a great idea, though tt will be interesting to see if they can maintain a level of objectivity. As far as I can tell they’ve done ok with their customer rating feature since it’s easy to find scathing reviews of products in them. I’ve been using the forums at places like Sharkyextreme and techreport to research purchases. We’ll see if newegg’s new system can measure up over the next couple of years.
