Tigerdirect is very reliable. The problem lies within their very, very, very slow rebate affiliates. Tigerdirect is a strong company.

They are a solid company, but i only go through them because they have an outlet store nearby.

Tiger is also very close to me, actually 10 mins from where I work, but I no longer order from them anymore. So far i have replaced all but a few parts that i bought from them when i built my new rig. It seems like everything they sell is either broken, used already, or were the QC rejects from the assembly lines.

But, that's just my opinion, personally i order from Newegg, Zipzoomfly, and some other online sites.
