The new front page of EggXpert.com
Online retailer Newegg hopes its customers will socialize with each other

Online retailer of computer hardware and accessories Newegg.com is officially launching today its hardware enthusiast community site EggXpert.com. The new site, which was previously in an open beta, allows users to discuss on PC hardware and consumer electronics through forums and blogs.

Added since the original beta version of the site is an official EggXpert Newsletter, a bi-weekly e-zine that compiles content written by the users of the EggXpert forum. Also new are Editor’s Picks, where a different forum thread and user blog are spotlighted each day as a front page feature.

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 Newegg.com

The front page of EggXpert also presents the opportunity for Newegg to highlight special deals and sales of software, hardware, accessories, peripherals, DVD movies and other electronics.

During the early stages of the site in April, the EggXpert forum had 5,500 members who contributed to 2,444 threads and 3,674 posts. Since then, the community has grown to over 32,000 users, 55,280 threads and 80,845 posts.

Its nice that us buyers can get together to discuss our purchases, frustrations, results, and how-to's on the same site as where we bought our goods.

I can only hope for two things:

1. That there is a section to where we can voice our opinions about the egg's business practices, prices, results, parts being DOA, etc so that NewEgg can take care of the problems, and discontinue carrying items that have proven to be faulty.

2. That the Hot Deals section is not inappropriately handled by NewEgg to the point where they can see us commenting on what we see as a "steal" or a "misprint" to where they start jacking up the prices. Perhaps my "ethics" here are not quite practical, but "I LOVES ME A GOOD SALE"
