Default Best sites on the web for Deals on Electronics, computers, gadgets etc

Well, I have been planning on making one of these threads for a while. In this new millennium, NO ONE really goes to the store anymore. Our lifestyle has gotten so busy, we simply order things online and get the product delivered to our doorstep the next day. Also, not to mention, there are some sites on the web where you can get great deals on things that you need. In the next few paragraphs, I'll name a few. PLEASE feel free to contribute to the list as you find more sites.

thanks.

1. slickdeals:
This is a site that consists of deals all around the web. You'll find deals (links) on electronics to televisions to sweaters -- all in the same place.

website: http://slickdeals.net/

2. Ecost
One of my VERY favorite site. I have been shopping from here since 2002 and I have NEVER had a bad situation. They have an awesome countdown called "Bargain countdown" where you'll find great deals on electronics, tvs, gadgets etc. This site is AK recommended .

Website: http://www.ecost.com

3. Tigerdirect
I have always looked at tigerdirect for any of my computer needs (i.e laptops, port HD, etc). I think they have the BEST (cheapest) pricing on all (ready to use) computer related products. Their website layout is great too at it will display the 10 most popular products sold in the category you're looking for.

Website: http://www.tigerdirect.com/

4. Newegg
My friend onetheefive is swear by this site and tells me that it's a great site for computer parts. If you're building your own computer, you can find everything you need from this place at a great price. I have never bought anything but seems like a good place

website: http://www.newegg.com/

5. woot
I don't know how many of you know about this site, but it's an awesome site. They will give you 1 great deal and it'll only last 24 hours (or until they sold out) Shipping is ALWAYS $5 regardless of the Size and Weight!

Website: Woot : One Day, One Deal (SM)


6. Geeks
A site similar to Tigerdirect format. Mostly computer and electronics related site.

Website: http://www.geeks.com/ added by schrack150


7. CircuitCity
When CircuitCity closed out from united states, I believe they sold www.circuitcity.com to a third party. Now these guys have been posting some really good deals . Not sure if they are connected with other big site like tigerdirect or compusa, but it's worth a visit.

Website: http://www.circuitcity.com/

Woot is great but there's also the subsidiaries. Sellout.Woot is typically the only other one of them with electronics and such though.

There's a Woot Off today!

Tigerdirect (as mentioned above) is awesome. I do alot of business with them. Also, if you are in the houston area, look up Directron (located Harwin@Beltway 8).

Also, if you need (or are looking for) more heavy duty hardware look up PC Connection.

Newegg.com has a deal of the day. I get a text message every day at exactly 10a about it. They seem to be way up there when it comes to having a diverse selection of products all with pictures and reviews.

I use to deal with Tiger Direct years ago after having trouble with them sending me extra stuff or not what I ordered I went with newegg never looked back.

woofersetc.com is another great one.

Newegg is great, I built 2 computers by buying all the parts from them. Spent probably 4000 on both computers but that price would've doubled if I had gone to other sites or bought a PC from best buy or the likes (getting a pc with comparable quality obviously).

Another vote for NewEgg - I built the machine from scratch that I'm using right now and absolutely love it. Also used slickdeals and tigerdirect sparingly in the past. Very interesting about Circuit City - I'll have to check that out.

Agreed. My current desktop computer is built from scratch from Newegg. One of my friend built it for me.
