    I thought it had , or so i heard to something of that effect.

    Maybe I can find some good deals that will make it worth my while shipping with myus.com ?

    Its just warranty's for motherboard , cpu etc that worries me - unless i can snag one dirt cheap.

    haha ok smarty pants, i'll elaborate. it was a success for:

    1) the very small amount of people that could actually get a bargain, due to:
    i) very limited stock on sale items
    ii) limited sale items!
    2) amazon, for creating huge hype while actually not having to give too much stuff away for cheap

    it would be nice to have at least free delivery deals from scan more than just a few times a year.

    There's one every day of the year if you fit the criteria for free delivery.

    Just to point out, 20 meaningful (i.e. non-spammy) posts.

    We regularly get people just posting, or worse cut-and-pasting one or two word answers, apparently just to qualify. And the mods regularly delete such blatant spamming, and Scan are aware of it too and reserve the right to decline to offer free shipping.

    I'm not suggesting you'd do that, but be aware, it's very much frowned on.

    I agree with all your points, but having learnt their mistakes from last year I'm sure they will have a better BF this year round. I'm looking forward to it. I grabbed quite a few things from them last year.

    Agreed Saracen.
    I started looking at hexus via links from Scan .. and then first got hooked on the reviews and detailed explanation.
    And now I am getting hooked on the forum. Best part according to me .. it also deals with Photography ... My second passion!!
