Someone posted them before.

Don't know much about them.

Here's their resellerrstings.com page:
http://www.resellerratings.com/seller6374.html

First review was posted 11/26/03

They sell Rosewill products, so I guess they are another storefront for NewEgg.

i just found that page too and it seems like its neweggs siamese twin
because they even use same pictures for items and the prices are so close that makes me wonder if they shop at the same place or its an artificial competition for new egg

but most prices on chief value are either 50 or a dollar higher
altho there are some good price drops
what u gotta do is build a shopping cart on both of them and pick the cheapest components out of both of them

Someone needs to order something from them, and tell us if it is shipped from Baldwin Park, CA. If so, then it's probably newegg under a different name.

They have the same warehouse... or at least UPS thinks so. When I had an issue with them the UPS rep goes or "you got it from Newegg?" I said no Chief value and she was shocked. So they both ship from baldwin park and at least store in the same warehouse.
