Not an answer to your question, but..

I have spent a lot of time looking at the customer reviews and comments
on newegg.  I have seen several people suggest that the DOA rate for
items sent with fast shipping was much higher than items sent through
normal shipping.  There might be some logic to this.

Newegg's prices (and policies) are excellent.  It would take a lot for
me to give them up.
