I have found tons of negative comments about iBuyPower. I challenge you to find even one single negative report about eCollegePC. Just one!
Also, after doing some more research, I asked the builder to remove the fan controller (since the temperature monitor can't read tCore or tJunction) and got a card reader
There are a few bad reviews if you go back far enough in their resellerratings history. Overall, yes they have a very good rating. The thing I find somewhat odd is the fact that after more than a decade in business, they have less than 100 total reviews on the site, and a pretty thin internet presence overall. I suppose part of that could be chalked up to dissatisfied customers being more likely to post, but I'm surprised they're not better known if they're as good as the reviews imply, especially given how long they've been around.
