I just got an email from them for "E-Blast Insiders", but without that deal. Perhaps I'll get the "Shell Shocker" mail
Honestly, all this screwy marketing really makes me want to deal with a more conventional vendor, even if I have to pay a
little more. I'll usually buy from N/E only if I can't find the item elsewhere (like I just bought some Kingston 800Mhz.
DDR2 RAM that was guaranteed to run at 1066Mhz., and it did, perhaps the giant heatsinks help, but I could not find it
One "reviewer" complained that the "blue" heatsinks were more like purple. Come on people, this is RAM, what sort of idiot
would complain about the H/S color shade?
Answer: teenage gamers, which is who N/E seems to target.

MIRs should be illegal IMHO. Many of the fullfillment outfits hired to administer them get to keep whatever is not paid out,
seems like an incentive to screw people.
