    I've had really good luck lately with www.buy.com .

    They pack VERY well, everything I have received from them was overpacked in a considerably larger box filled with foam peanuts.

    They shipped that day or next day, and they have a 30 day money back return policy. Not sure about restocking fees for non-defective merchandise. They are VERY reputable and I buy a lot of stuff from them, never had to return anything though... maybe that's a good sign?

    I've built 2 PC's from the ground up in the last month and bought almost all the peripheral cards and drives from them. Their prices were lowest or very close to the lowest on everything I needed.

    Highly recommended...

    I've ordered from the following:

    outpost.com (free overnight shipping)
    buy.com best prices I've found
    krex.com
    ftnyc.com

    All of these online stores have given me great service. Couldn't tell you about their return services. I've never had to return any products. Good Luck!

    My favorite is www.onsale.com

    Good prices + free shipping + gets here fast = good experience

    Try going to www.pricewatch.com or www.shopper.com to check for lowest prices on nearly any electroic item or software product.

    **If you find an item @ an unbelievable price, be sure to check the shipping charges. That why I like Onsale.com.....Free shipping......

    I have been buying a lot of stuffs from Buy.com and have not had any prob. with them.
    Let say: I ordered one CD-ROM, one Video, one Sound card and the Mother Board. They Packed those in two big boxes with foams and filled up my garbage can later on.
    They will not deliver the orders without the signature. Or will not charge any items if the buyer has not recieved.

    Hope it helped you in some ways.
