Re: Why you never heard of Systemax stores
I think in the US that Systemax is known as TigerDirect, and they have a handful of retail stores with that name. They bought the defunct CompUSA brand name and were using that for a while, running stores that carried both names.
I always felt that TigerDirect was suspect given their shady rebate deals and other things, and this was 10 years ago. To find out that the boss Carl was crooked confirmed that. I thought he was already nabbed on other similar charges a few years ago?
I don't think Microcenter is in that mix, at least I hope it isn't as they are one of only a few places around that carry geek gear. They seem like a legit business.
