Interesting to note that www.tigerdirectsucks.org points to tiger direct.
Not that I'd buy from them as A) I'm in the UK and b) 10min drive from Novatech
One thing I'm surprised nobody's mentioned is product search features. I find that I tend to almost always go newegg, and I've found that using other websites, even if they might have parts I could use at good prices, it's not easy to find them. As an example, say I want to find ALL monitors on TigerDirect and that are 20"-24" with 16:10 aspect ratio.... I can't do it easily. Instead I'm presented with list of categories that I have to traverse separately. It's really stupid. And it's pretty much the same with any given product. Instead of being able to search for the given set of features you want, you have to browse through categories. Nobody in their right mind wants to shop that way. When I go to get a computer part, I want to see all available parts with a minimum feature set and maximum price and go from there. Newegg's advanced search does this well. TigerDirect doesn't have anything close.

Honestly, I have never found Tigerdirect cheaper on anything that I can buy locally at a privately owned local computer shop. They are far from the cheapest outlet.
Tiger Direct is running a pretty special on Office 2007.
Give these sku's a look
Office Basic for only $169.99
Please email if you are interested.
and lets not forget the insane ripping off at tigerdirect.ca despite the US and Canadian dollar being on par.
