Scott, I did read your review. Your point about where the item is 
shipped from is very valid. NewEgg has followed the Amazon model in that 
NewEgg lets other retailers besides NewEgg use the NewEgg store to sell 
their wares. Luckily, NewEgg lets you filter out the items being shipped 
from sellers other than NewEgg.

For example, I followed the links in NewEgg's shopping tools to Computer 
Hardware > Computer Accessories > Add-on Cards. I then filtered for "PCI 
to Serial Port Card". There were 130 of those listings. I then filtered 
for NewEgg as the seller. There were only 53 of those. In the 
manufacturers filters, I see the name "SIIG". I've purchased SIIG 
computer accessories in the past and, in my experience, they are good 
products. Filtering for SIIG takes me down to 11 items.

Yes, you'll pay more for a name brand product shipped from a U.S. 
retailer. But, I think reducing the headache factor is worth the cost.
