Named ‘Overall Best Place to Buy Online’ in Computer Shopper Magazine

I have never shopped at, only at PC Mall, CDW,, Igo and a few other online retailers. But my next online purchase for tech will probably be at – just to try them out.,(, a leading IT and consumer electronics e-commerce retailer serving more than 3 million customers, today announced that Computer Shopper’s readers overwhelmingly recognized the company in the magazine’s 2004 Shoppers’ Choice Awards, voting to first place in four out of eight “Best Places to Buy” categories, including “Overall Best Place to Buy Online.”
For the “Overall Best Place to Buy Online” award, Computer Shopper explains, “ offsets its lack of stores with an inventory that rivals, and in many cases outdoes, the biggest retailers. Newegg is one of the first sites our readers turn to find the hottest devices, components and software.”
For the Core Components award the Computer Shopper article reveals, “Memory, hard drives and graphics cards — are all here. If you can’t find it at Newegg, you may not need it.”
In the Software category, the magazine reported, “Newegg has no shelves, so the company can supply you with a huge list of PC games and applications, from the most popular to the most obscure.”
In the Digital Gear category, Computer Shopper proclaimed, “With a comprehensive offering of the latest gear, the online retailer leapfrogged Circuit City, CompUSA, and last year’s winner, Best Buy, to lay claim to the market for digital gear.”
“We are thrilled to have been recognized by the people who matter the most to our customers,” Howard Tong, Vice President of, said. “It is an honor to have been awarded a first or second place ranking in each of the categories we were eligible for, especially the ‘Overall Best Place to Buy Online’ commendation. I am extremely proud of the staff. We will continue enhancing our website and improving our services in 2005 and beyond.”
