Direct Canada

Anyone ever purchase from this on-line store?

Ipad Defender Otterbox for $54, can find anything close to that price, but haven't really heard of them before.

Buy it on eBay. I assume it'll be a lot cheaper.

I would like to think I am a pretty savvy online shopper and I have never heard of them.

Seems like they're a local computer shop in Richmond, BC.

I've bought stuff in the past from them, they're decent. About the same service as you'd expect from NCIX or Memory Express or any of the other canadian online shops.

Sadly, no. Also coming from the States might have to pay customs, depending on the mood they're in.

I believe they are a subsidiary or sister company of NCIX, so they're legit. IIRC I've bought from them before (or else it was BestDirect, another sister company) and had no problems.

Can already tell you it should be called Indirect Canada.... I mean, c'mon, it took 8 days for them to ship it out. I'm not talking about me getting it in 8 days, it took 8 days for their website to finally show a Purolator tracking number.

Oh well, at least it's on it's way. Let's see how long it takes to make it across the country.

So even with the lack of support and the fact that no one had heard of them you still decided to take the plunge.

I was talking to my brother-in-law who has built computer and been into electronics for years and he said he's heard of them, pretty sure he'd even purchased from them, so I figured why not?

If you delve deep enough, you'll find that it's owned by the same parent company that owns NCIX. Serviced by the same warehouses, etc.

This. If I'm after something they have though, I generally look to see if NCIX has the same item (usually do), and then price match it. Often I'm paying more because of shipping, but NCIX has pretty good customer interaction - sometimes you may need to escalate things to supervisors, but the supervisors typically know how to take care of a customer and satisfy him.

They have better prices for monitors and other accessories than many other sites I've been to. Bookmarked.

..... that, and they accepted PayPal, which means I don't have to give a credit card number to a unknown company.
