In the future I suggest actually reading the post and not just the title.

Edit: I have seen boxes arrive in worse conditions, a lot worse.
Plus one to this, I too thought it was a Newegg praise/win. However being a psu it'll win the battle usually. Its best to not post vs posting just to post.

It really looks like due to the increased package traffic, they jammed more boxes into the truck/plane/horse buggy and it was squished.

Fortunately for me, Purulator got my mobo and ram to me in perfect shaped boxes.

I used to be FedEx all the way... until the day one of their drivers threw an RMA'd optical drive 12' across my porch instead of taking 3-4 steps to lay it in front of the door. I guess he didn't see my mother-in-law standing in the living room when he did it. needless to say the drive was dead when installed and since dipwad dented a corner with his throw I was stuck with it.

I've had some pretty roughed up packages over the years, but NewEgg has always succeeded in thwarting all delivery companies (UPS, FedEx, DHL, USPS).

I get annoyed when my packages come from newegg and they aren't even in a newegg packaging, just the manufacturers package. I get that a lot.

Depends on what you buy. I know cases come in their retail packages.

Was the memory package OK, though?

Yet, that's FedEx, so we are still safe.
