Hey guys:
Well, I have a big decision to make. I'm hoping to purchase KOF 2K and I have narrowed it down to two websites: buy-rite and National Console Support. Should I go with the one that has it for cheaper, but is rumored to have bad service(buy-rite) or go with the better service one, but paying 122 dollars more for it(NSCX)Well, thanks for your help, I'll be on tomorrow. Later.

Go with the one with better reputation as if it is cheaper but you get ripped off it defeats the point of saving a hundred dollars if you get nothing.

I got mine at ncsx, but I have also dealt w/ Buyrite numerous times w/out any problems. Several members got ripped by Buyrite, but then there are many others who was fine w/ it--maybe it's like a lottery system. If you are unlucky, you get a bad service, etc. But then ncsx can be accused of the same thing (who is perfect? Everyone makes mistakes). I guess it's just the frequency of mistakes that is the issue.

So, if you want to save some cash, but really worried about buying from Buyrite, why not use a CC like Visa? Then you can dispute the cost to the CC company should anything go wrong. It might be a pain in the arse though (and you pay for the interest rates). Payment upon delivery is much better option, if you are not sure about their reputation.

hey, i bought my KOF 2000 Home cart from buyrite. No problem at all.

Just make sure for shipping you pick the UPS 2 day ship.

I've purchased items from both sites. I've yet to have real problem with either. Buy Rite once sent me the wrong Saturn 5-in-1 converter and a quick phone call got that resolved. NCSX has a better ordering system. BuyRite tends to charge a lot for shipping sometimes.

I would recommend seeking advice from people who had dealt with either of the companies before who are residing around your area.

I've only dealt with NCS over the last 3 years, and they have done wonders for me. Not one single screw up with any of my orders. It's funny that they actually have a higher price tag for KOF 2000 than Buyrite, but I do know that there are fewer stories about bad deals when pertaining to NCS than Buyrite.

My choice would be to go with NCS, since they have always done right by me. But plenty of people have also done well with Buyrite so I don't see anything wrong about going along with them, especially if they can save you a few bucks in the process. Just be sure they actually HAVE the game before you send your money out. <IMG SRC="smilies/glee.gif" border="0">

Go NCS, buy rite really sucks. Their service is crap, they don't even answer some mails.
Also they send pretty fucked up stuff, no good condition.

Don't even think about it, go NCS.

Buy Right sucks but $122 is a lot of money. Personally I would go the cheaper route.

This has to be one of the easiest question to answer. BuyRite, because it is cheaper.
