newegg uses paper "padding " for shipping some items.
I have had good luck with newegg ordered items. Every time I open a package and see paper I worry about shipping damage though.
I often wonder how many of those newegg reports (or similar ones) can be attributed to package abuse. In packing or transit.
From my reading some parts of the country are notorious for rough package handling. Mine (area, location, whatever), bless the people I see and do not see, is not one of them.
No way to tell.
Anyone care to invent a shock recorder that could ship from the manufacturer with each item? Also the tech levels of some people handling this stuff after they get it is scary.
