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

Online retailer of computer hardware and accessories is officially launching today its hardware enthusiast community site 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

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.

Particularly when it's only semantics to begin with and the original posting was actually correct. Because it was an OPEN beta there is no real practical difference between the "beta" and "officially open" other than the banner on the website. Kind of like physical stores that are open for a week or two before their grand opening events, they REALLY had already been open. Same with newEgg's new site. I've been on it for months, as could anyone else. Same as now. Difference between then and now (that I can tell) is the dropping of "Beta" in its description. That other fellow really shouldn't have been ripped for REALLY having had been right to begin with. Had it been a closed beta that'd been different, but the site has been open to the public for some time now. They're only just now putting up the grand opening newspaper ads.
