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.





“Then they pop up and say ‘Hello, surprise! Give us your money or we will shut you down!' Screw them. Seriously, screw them. You can quote me on that.” -- Newegg Chief Legal Officer Lee Cheng referencing patent trolls
