The front page of
EggXpert is the new official forum area for Newegg

Online retailer of computer hardware and accessories is putting its latest venture square in the hands of the PC enthusiast community. Earlier this month, Newegg quietly launched its own community site called with a forums section and blogs for its users.

Currently in an open beta stage, EggXpert describes itself as “an extensive and easy-to-use online tech community designed specifically for PC & consumer electronics enthusiasts like yourself.” Users can interact with each other via online forums, blogs and regular interactive events.

EggXpert likely realizes that a good portion of Newegg customers are PC do-it-yourself types, and have opened a forum dedicated to the DIY crowd and even overclockers. Appropriately, situated right below the overclockers’ area is a forum dedicated to helping with hardware troubles.

Unlike many other hardware enthusiast forums on the Internet, EggXpert does not have an area dedicated for its members to buy, sell and trade their computer goods. In place of a traditional marketplace section are forums where users can discuss and inform each other of hot deals, even if they aren’t products from

Since the site’s launch in early April, the forum has amassed over 5,500 members who have contributed to 2,444 threads and 3,674 posts.

15% tax?

I'd rather pay that than to pay for my health insurance.

You still pay for health insurance in Canada, it's very far from free, and what you get for that is called [drumroll]waiting list![/drumroll]. Good luck surviving while waiting for your surgery :P I'd save and pay fair price for my healthcare instead of dying in the waiting list, while rich fucks in commie Canadian government (Paul Martin was number one fuck among them) get treatment in their private clinics in the United States, while at the same time PROHIBITING private healthcare in Canada and getting this stupid 15% sales tax spent on their fucking private clinic bills, stupid Kyoto protocol redtape and shit like that :(

It's 14% now, should drop to 13% next year.

Yeah, I know, Canadian republicans with Harper at helm are slowly fixing things broken by new democrat and liberal commies (fuck you Paul Martin), but still commies are way too strong here, so no major tax reductions and no decent healthcare in near future. I'm happy with 1% tax reduction, no problem with that, but this still doesn't help with envy for the United States where lucky Americans have lower sales tax or no sales tax at all (!) and proper waiting-list-free healthcare

Oh Canadians definitely pay for health care. It's in the form of income tax.

Sorry but the Conservatives are no better than the NDP/Left because when the left gets in, they create things to tax the shit out of you. People get upset and vote them out. They elect a right wing party that doesn't touch it because it makes them too much money. BC is a perfect example of this. I'm sure other provinces may be too but I don't know about their politics.

On the topic of Newegg, they could start shipping to Canada. It's not like we're on the other side of the world or a society of cons. I just want cheap hardware!

They won't start shipping to Canada because to many people refuse to pay the sales taxes once its in Customs. A lot of idiots think that if they order online from the US, they do not have to pay Canadian sales taxes.

Wrong. Conservatives with Harper 1) reduced GST already, just a little bit but they DID reduce it, unlike what you say 2) started sending $100 checks for parents with kids. I've seen zero help from Liberals for my kid and this $100 check is very much appreciated.

I have to laugh at this, you can thank the old Progressive Conservative party for GST. And, I doubt any party would have the political capital to dismantle universal health coverage in Canada. I can see both sides to the argument, but its just NOT going to happen.

I don't care who introduced taxes. I vote only for those who reduce it. The moment Conservatives stop reducing GST or introduce other taxes that I notice - I stop voting for them. Plain and simple.

No party will do that, I agree, but it's happening by itself, fortunately. Private clinics started to pop up here and there and I know some local companies arranging for US hospital treatment (I was almost gong south when local doctor told me I will see liver specialist in NINE MONTHS, NOT EARLIER - you Americans don't realize how lucky you are, really). I don't know how many years it'll take but looks like local commies will get it up their red fat a$$es - the private clinics will win the fight in the end. "You just wait" (C) Malcolm Betruger. Finally, I won't have to wait for NINE MONTHS anymore, woohoo!

The last time I had to see a specialist, I got an appointment in 24 hours. Thank god I dont have universal healthcare, or I'd be dead now.

you're definitely from the US, only _24_ _hours_ for a specialist appointment - that's unheard of in Canada (besides commie Canadian government of course)
