anybody ever bought anything from this website? It is an electronics online store and I can get a 52 inch Sharp Aquos for about 1300 bucks, but I don't know how reputable it is. I haven't seen anything about payment plans so I don't know if you have to pay in full when you place the order or not.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

do they have a payment plan or do you have to pay in full on purchase?

No idea. I know they do the PayPal Pay Later thing. Newegg has a decent credit plan, though.

Tiger was actually one of the first sites to sell bunches of PC stuff back in the day. They are credible, as credible as newegg or pcconnection.

Newegg usually has the best prices, in my experience anyway. They have excellent customer service and quick shipping as well.

*EDIT -- I just looked and the price on Newegg is a little more expensive. Although, when you factor in Newegg's free shipping it's actually cheaper.

tiger also charges sales tax if you are NC. Newegg doesn't.

I've heard lots of horror stories related to Tiger Direct, especially where rebates are concerned. Newegg IMHO is a far better company. Tiger Direct has just over a 7 lifetime rating at Resellerratings.com, Newegg almost a perfect 10.

If you ever visit a site like Fat Wallet, Tiger Direct is held in very low regard. http://www.fatwallet.com/forums/hot-deals

Just my 2 cents.

I've only done two rebates with Tigerdirect, one for a PSU and one for a video card which I bought both at the same time. Both rebates were done by different companies but got them in the time they stated. Now Best Buy rebates...

    • You're looking at a false reality. You're creating a narrative that doesn't truly exist, that a person is only defined by their race and nothing else. Your views on people are just as bad as those who created the Jim Crow Laws, spit on people and look down on them based on race only, and enslaved millions because of the color of their skin; never once considering them how they are as a person. You see them based on their race instead of how they are as people. Ignore the fact that America has elected a black president twice in a row for an 8 year presidency. Ignore the plentiful amount of successful blacks in plenty of fields of career fields who are wealthy and living a productive and successful lifestyle. Ignore the dominance of black athletes in sports. Look at them as people, and how their personality and characteristics got them to where they are instead of race. The way they got to where they are is completely justified and has nothing to do with race.
    • He's the most intriguing prospect of the draft.  If he can be a true T with the ability to not only play both spots but to excel in them we may have selected one of the steals of the draft.  Sucks we won't have that 5th yr option but I'd welcome that problem later to have a true LT/RT for years to come.
    • I 100% support his politics. I 100% hate him as a QB...along with Wilson Luck and Ryan. I want him to succeed as I like having NFL adversaries for Cam #TeamCam
