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.

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.
