...I've talked to NE people. It was started by the NE founders. It's similiar to the NE channel but their tactic is to NOT market, which is why sometimes prices are lower.
On the other hand, they seem to play off each other - sometimes NE's prices are much better than CVs. Your best bet is to use RTPE:
CDFreaks.com (instead of Anandtech.com) for CD/DVD items. :disagree: (KristopherKubicki is their staff but I don't work for CDFreaks.com.)
The media news was posted rather long ago about Newegg.com's expansion before this Reuters news.

SHANGHAI (Reuters) - Newegg Inc., an online seller of PCs and computer parts, is aiming for an initial public offering in the next year as it embarks on an aggressive global expansion including a build-up in China, its top executive said on Friday.
The news comes from Shanghai actually and written by Doug Young. Newegg.com is run by Simon Hsieh, a Taiwanese-American so the Chinese expansion is nothing but natural. According to people in China, newegg.com in China does not seem to do as well as they do in the US market. They are also planning to sell in Canada, UK, and Japan. A South Korean newegg.com will be nice as well but I doubt it would succeed due to local competition.
